Common challenge

The entire programme area is struggling to prevent food waste and across the area the number of people experiencing food insecurity is increasing. This project will tackle this challenge through the valorisation of food surplus whilst simultaneously creating jobs, pathways to employment and supporting people living in food insecurity. It will find new models to make the interception and redistribution of surplus viable. The food industry did not find an answer to their huge amounts of food surplus, by no means to keep it for human consumption, principally because of the labour-intensive super flexible approach needed to do so. In this project, we will work to develop socio-economic business models with environmental benefits to do so.
