EuroCHRIE Small Groups Meeting Food Waste
The small group meeting (SGM) will be on the topic of food waste as one of society’s greatest financial, economic and ethical challenges. It is of growing interest to many stakeholders in society from policy makers, business and academia (see below ‘call for papers’ for more context). The hospitality and food service sector is not only responsible for 14% of the global food waste, the research interest in this area is growing quickly as well. EuroCHRIE and Hotelschool The Hague believe that it can be seen as an educational duty to contribute to finding solutions to this great problem.
