Webinar recording: How your business can find value from food waste streams


This webinar, recorded on 02 September 2020, explored how small and medium-sized businesses involved in food and drink production and processing can find new income streams, cut costs and improve their green credentials by creating value from food ‘waste’ streams.

Speakers included those who have successfully turned waste into value and from those who can offer funded support to help regional businesses to do the same.
