Topic: Reducing food waste across the EU: stakeholder collaboration to acheive a transparent and sustainable food supply chain

Time: 11 February 2016

Venue: Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Registration & Agenda: Agenda FUSIONS RPM Amsterdam (pdf) & Registration form - Registration is mandatory but participation and lunch is free of charge

This AMS-sponsored event, hosted by BIO by Deloitte will focus on addressing how to build trust across the food supply chain to collectively reduce food waste (with a focus on the retail sector and policy) and how entrepreneurial efforts and social innovation can further contribute to a transparent food supply chain. 

At the RPM, keynote speakers from both the retail and entrepreneurial sector along with break-out sessions will allow for fruitful discussion. Time will also be left to for a presentation on “Life after FUSIONS”, to give a close to the last North-West RPM and to shine light on how to stay involved on EU food waste issues, including staying tuned in with the new EU food waste project, REFRESH. 

Furthermore this RPM has been planned to fall just after the Amsterdam hub Food Surplus Entrepreneurs Network’s Food Waste Challenge event on 10 February. During this event, and in preparation for the 11 February RPM, participants will be challenged to come up with innovative start-up ideas aimed at reduce food waste. At the end of the day, teams will participate in a pitching competition. The winners of this pitching competition will present to experts present at the EU FUSIONS RPM on 11nFebruary and will receive coaching afterwards to implement their idea. Register here for the 10 February 2016 Food Waste Challenge!

Please refer to the 11 February RPM Agenda for more details about the speakers, discussion topics, and logistical information. Please do not forget to register for the RPM and for the Food Waste Challenge!

We look forward to welcoming you to the last North West Regional Platform meeting!


The presentations and the summary of the meeting will be available here after the event.
