The SITES team will participate to the event on the 17th of November at 10:30 AM CET and aims to present and share the objectives of the business ecosystem group with the public.

With the main goal of tackling food waste loss (FLW) in Europe, this group invites organisations with commercial insight and has been created to discuss and support spin-offs, innovative ideas, business opportunities and much more. The group will have access to an online community to create synergies and interact with a wide range of stakeholders who share a common interest in learning and exchange information about the needs and solutions for FLW in the market and an opportunity for potential collaborations/ partnerships.

ZeroW directly addresses the challenge of food loss and waste by developing and testing a synergetic mix of innovations in real-life conditions, to deliver ambitious reductions at all stages of the food supply chain from pre-harvest to consumption.

ZeroW is a €12 million EU project about systemic innovations for zero food waste, funded under the Green Deal call of the Horizon Programme 2020 (Grant Agreement no. 101036388).

The European Commission will closely monitor the project’s results and progress over the next four years in relation to future EU legislation on reduction of food waste.

The project runs from 2022 to 2025 and is implemented in collaboration among 46 stakeholders from 17 countries.
