Best Before: balancing food safety and food waste

Mon 5 December 2022


According to the UN, if food waste were a country, it would be the third-largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions after China and the US.

This webinar from the University of Cambridge will examine the connection between food labelling and food waste. Our expert panel will discuss what the food labelling system is designed to achieve. Does it keep us from eating out of date food or create confusion so that food which could have been eaten perfectly safely is wasted.

What are the solutions, and can we create a more circular system that both cuts down food waste and keeps us safe?

This is a follow up to the webinar What a Waste: circular food systems and sustainable diets organised by Cambridge Global Food Security and Cambridge Infectious Diseases last year.

T?he panel:

C?aroline Conroy, Sustainability Sector Specialist, WRAP
A?my Hooper, Biffa
D?r Milorad Radakovich, Teaching Fellow in Veterinary Public Health, University of Cambridge)
R?ebecca Sudworth, Head of Policy, Food Standards Agency
C?hair: Professor Yasemin Kor, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge
