4th REAMIT Symposium 2022: Sustainable solutions for reducing food waste

December 8, 2022 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

We look forward to seeing you on 8 of December 2022 for the 4th symposium of the REAMIT Project, at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in the heart of the very dynamic capital of the Pays de La Loire Region of France.

The symposium will gather key players committed to tackle food waste in favour of sustainable food system in Europe. Solutions providers are: food producers, supply chain companies (processing and logistics), local authorities, academics, digital technology providers, etc.

The symposium will be the opportunity to explore sustainable solutions for saving food and reducing food waste in the new normal.

Our event will be structured around showcases of the REAMIT project’s latest achievements by the various project partners, and round-table discussions with presentations of innovative solutions, inspiring testimonials from companies, solution providers, and actors involved in the reduction of food waste in the agricultural and agrifood chain.
