NYC Food Waste Fair

A “soup to nuts” approach to food waste prevention, recovery and recycling.
New York City businesses throw away more than 650,000 tons of food waste annually—yet food scraps aren’t garbage. Instead, that food could be used to feed people and animals, nourish soil, grow healthy food, and create energy.
Businesses, investors and policymakers are eager to reduce their food waste footprint, and crave information about practical, tangible, shelf-ready solutions. By pairing an expo-style event with workshops, digital content and live demonstrations, the NYC Food Waste Fair will provide critical resources, and catalyze a growing industry.
The NYC Food Waste Fair will equip business owners and managers with the knowledge, tools and connections to build a waste prevention plan from scratch, or take existing programs to the next level. The exhibit hall will showcase dozens of vendors offering food waste prevention, recovery and recycling services. And workshops will provide information from city government officials on how to comply with laws and regulations, as well as tips from experts on how to achieve tangible, cost-effective results.
Take advantage of the Early Bird 50% off discount until July 1st.
