Webinar examines how to tackle food waste

Wholesalers and suppliers can benefit from a free webinar, hosted by The Felix Project, on reducing food waste

The event, Tackling Food Waste: How To Hit Net Zero And Be A Hero, will bring together a number of food industry leaders to discuss how adopting a more socially conscious approach to food surplus has had a positive impact on their business.

The selected speakers have a wholesale and B2B supplier focus and they will also discuss the financial, sustainability and environmental benefits of a charity partnership.

The event takes place on Tuesday 18 June, 2pm-3pm and includes a Q&A session for the final 30 minutes.

Speakers include:

  • Simon Barnard, Production Manager, Albion Fine Foods
  • Keith Ward, Chairman, Western International Market Tenant Association
  • Amirah Jiwa, Head of Impact, Vibrant Foods
  • Richard Smith, Head of Supply, The Felix Project
  • Laurence Smith, Founder, Lewisham Donation Hub

Every week, The Felix Project rescues more than 250 tonnes of food that cannot be sold and delivers it to more than 1,000 community organisations and schools in every London borough who use it to feed people experiencing food insecurity.

“The Felix Project is the largest food rescue charity in the UK,” said Richard Smith, Head of Supply, The Felix Project.

“We want to be there to help the food industry cut the amount of surplus going to waste and prevent the harm it does to our environment. We hope this webinar will demonstrate the progress we are already making by working together and encourage more suppliers to come on board, to understand they can overcome any perceived barriers to donating their food, improve their CSR and ultimately help the millions of people struggling to afford to feed their families the healthy and balanced diet they need to survive.”
