#23.03.2018 APEAL “fighting food waste” at Anuga FoodTec 22nd March
Alexis Van Maercke joined keynote speakers Michele Amigoni (Technical Development Director Packaging Design & Standards, Barilla group) and Toine Timmermans (project manager REFRESH and Programme manager sustainable food chains Wageningen University and Research) as well as host Michael Nieuwesteeg (Managing Director NVC Netherlands Packaging Centre) and co-moderator Marco Sachet (Managing Director Italian Institute of Packaging).
A shared key message when it comes to food waste was clearly “Prevention should come first, redistribution next”.
Alexis presentation updated the audience both on the measures being taken at EU level to target food waste and how “traditional” packaging materials such as steel can help prevent waste by protecting and preserving food.
A “Zero Food Waste” diner at the acclaimed maiBeck restaurant in Cologne ended the day by demonstrating how fine dining is possible with no waste.
