A “soup to nuts” approach to food waste prevention, recovery
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.
