Expert panel discussion on reducing the impact of food waste

12th October 2018, 6.15pm, Room J.0.01, Edward Herbert Building

In the UK, consumers throw away £700 worth of food per family each year. Clearly this is unsustainable, yet there are a range of unanswered questions concerning the exact roles of industry, policy makers and consumers in reducing food waste. In response, the Centre for Sustainable Manufacturing and Recycling Technologies has organised a panel debate consisting of:

• Rt Hon Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough

• Caroline Drummond MBE, LEAF Chief Executive

• Trewin Restorick, CEO of Hubbub

• Ady Bryan, Manager of Tesco Loughborough

• Matt Copley, Senior Environment and Waste Management Technician, Leicestershire County Council

The event will begin at 18:15 on the 12th October with tea and cake, followed by a key note talk by Trewin Restorick (CEO of Hubbub), who will set the scene for the main panel discussion. Audience members are strongly encouraged to submit their questions in advance by email to smart@lboro.ac.uk or by Twitter to @centreforsmart. Registration can be found here:
