Event description

Description

The BioVale Value from Unavoidable Food Waste Special Interest Group (VFW SIG) has been working with the University of York to map and identify opportunities for added value from food manufacturing waste in Yorkshire.

This meeting aims to present the results of this work and draw together food manufacturers who have unavoidable waste with technology providers who can use that waste to make useful products as well as funders who can help support innovation projects.

The optional afternoon session is an open innovation event, focusing on developing projects and technologies to add value to poultry waste and by-products of fresh produce.
