Waste not, is a motto collectively held by many businesses in the food and drink industry who strive for solutions to cut down on food waste and ensure sustainability.
Suppliers of waste solutions and services who are specifically targeting the food, drink and packaging industries will exhibit the latest in food waste technology, designed for businesses looking for cost-saving and profit-making solutions at Waste-Works 2017, the waste and resource event dedicated to the food and drink industry, coming to ExCeL London this March.
“Waste-Works offers food producers a unique opportunity to explore ways to develop their sustainable credentials and find new waste solutions, including recycling, waste storage and collection, waste to energy solutions (such as food waste to anaerobic digestion), energy efficiency, waste management auditing and training and compliance,” explains event manager, Nick Piper.
Exhibitors include Organic Waste Logistics (food recycling), East London Biogas (anaerobic digestion), QCR (waste compacting solutions), Power Knot (US waste minimisation solutions), British Gas (energy saving solutions) and Aquabio (waste water treatment).
Key experts and speakers will provide debate and discussion at the three-day event from the Outside the Box stage built entirely of recyclable cardboard. Speakers include Adam Leyland, group editor, The Grocer and Leader of the Waste Not, Want Not campaign. Leyland wants the industry to work towards the goal that any edible food that cannot be sold by retailers and manufacturers should be used to feed people. Other speakers include William Heller, chief executive, Organic Waste Logistics, who is looking at the real scope of the food waste issue, emergent government policy and regulation and both existing and new options for dealing with unavoidable waste.
These bite-sized talks and industry insight briefings will run throughout the event, while daily lunchtime debates will see a number of experts share their views on a wide range of hot topics.
Registration for the events is free online, but will be £25 on the door.
