Timely and thought-provoking educational sessions

At the WasteExpo Food Recovery Forum, you'll learn about current and significant efforts to reduce food waste as well as increase food recovery, reuse, composting, and anaerobic digestion.

If you're a generator of food waste (from industries including hospitality, manufacturing, healthcare, restaurants, or any other institution that generates food waste), you'll discover a wide array of solutions that benefit both the environment and your bottom line. Or, as an organics recycling professional, you'll learn best practices from peers and meet customers who seek your services.

Speakers will include leaders of public, charitable, academic and private organizations who are at the forefront of the sector. Program highlights will include: 

  • "America's First National Goal to Reduce Wasted Food: A Call to Action", by Mathy Stanislaus, US EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Solid Waste. Federal government programs to reduce wasted food, and an action plan to help the nation reach its goal, will be discussed.
  • The Food Waste Reduction Alliance, a cross-industry effort managed by the Grocery Manufacturer's Association, National Restaurant Association, and Food Marketing Institute, will host a panel discussion including sustainability and professionals from organizations including: Nestle USA, the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy, and Wegmans Food Markets
  • "Racing to End Food Waste at Big Venues", by Jeremy Kranowitz, Executive Director of Sustainable America
  • "The Community Zero Waste Roadmap", by Eric Lombardi, Executive Director of Eco-Cycle International
  • Practical presentations on: "Food Donation Best Management Practices," "Zero Food Waste," "On-Site Food Waste Recycling Technologies," and "Food Waste Diversion Policies and Legislation"
  • A Food Recovery Workshop will be geared toward food waste generators (e.g. restaurants, groceries, hotels, and universities) who are interested in learning how to implement successful food waste recovery programs
  • We'll also hear about food waste diversion policies and legislation from various cities and counties
