Fight Food Waste Interactive Forums


   Monday 15th April, 2019

As part of our official launch on Friday at Farm World, Food & Fibre Gippsland collaborated with the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre to bring CEO, Dr Steve Lapidge to Lardner Park to present a series of interactive forums.

The forums were well attended, with participants both enthused and inspired by the information, insights, tips and processes that Dr Lapidge was able to share with the audience.

Food & Fibre Gippsland Interim CEO, Dr Nicola Watts said it was fantastic to be able to share Steve;s knowledge with Gippslanders.

“Food waste is a big issue on so many levels, and as part of our membership of the Fight Food Waste CRC, we are involved in discussion and action on educating and innovating with producers and processors across the sector on ideas and the potential to convert food waste into profit“ she said

“This aims to help people across Gippsland, prosperity in the region, and ultimately, contribute to the betterment of the planet via less food waste going into landfill” Dr Watts concluded.
