ABOUT THIS PROJECT

One-day conference Great Taste – Zero Waste  aims to promote sustainable food culture and provide solutions to minimize food waste.

 

Join the livestream

October 12, 14.00–18.30 (GMT+3)

The conference will serve as a knowledge and experience exchange between the Nordics, the Baltics, and Poland — countries with different historical backgrounds and experiences when it comes to reducing food waste and optimal use of resources.

 

The event will bring together experts and stakeholders working in the fields of gastronomy, food, and waste reduction. Leading researchers and environmental NGO representatives from the Baltic Sea region will share the latest findings on food consumption and food waste. Possible solutions will be presented by the EIT Food community and other experts. The event will conclude with culinary conversations by Polish, Baltic, and Nordic top chefs. The focus will be on specific methods for reducing food waste which the participants will be able to implement in their future daily work.

All presentations and videos will be uploaded in this webpage after the end of the event.
