Aligning the Food System: Food Safety Considerations for Developing Food Waste Solutions
May 15-16, 2019 | University of California, Davis
It is estimated that between 25-40% of all food is never eaten. These losses represent significant economic and environmental costs, but opportunities exist to improve the efficiency of our food systems. Sponsored via the World Food Center's Aligning the Food System platform, this workshop will consider proposed solutions to recover and recycle food loss and waste (FLW) in the context of balancing food safety concerns. By engaging industry, academic, policy, regulatory, extension, and NGO partners, the workshop will be the first of its kind to identify best practices and future directions for food safety in food waste solutions.
