FoodWaste

  • Innovation Lab 4 Chemin du Musée Fribourg, FR, 1700 Switzerland (map)

To ensure a bright future for the next generations, every citizen on this planet has a responsibility to bring a positive change in terms of sustainability. Food waste is one concern that we should pay attention to, especially when “one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted” (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2019). How can we bring an innovative solution to improve this situation? Would it be possible to have a world without food wasting? What are the food waste projects currently running in Switzerland? On this important topic, we have the opportunity to invite three Swiss leaders in the food waste economy and discuss their business concept as well as their vision regarding food waste.
