Find out about the very latest waste processing technology

The latest cutting-edge opportunities for food manufacturers to reduce costs and increase profits from food waste will be discussed at a conference called Making the most of food waste taking place on September 22 in Wakefield.

With increasingly robust legislation on the disposal of food waste -- particularly animal parts -- the conference will examine the best measures for reducing the complexity and costs involved in the food processing business. Legal requirements will be explained and disposal routes that realise additional income will be examined and assessed.

The conference, being organised by three Yorkshire Forward Centres of Industrial Collaboration (CICs): the Food Chain, Environmental Technologies and Green Chemistry CICs, is aimed at everyone involved in the supply and processing of food, as well as those handling and disposing food waste.

Bringing a scientific dimension to the food business, experts will also reveal new business opportunities available (eg. extraction of valuable chemicals), bacteriological characterisation, composting, sampling, and toxin identification.

Contact: The Food Chain CIC, Tel: 0113 343 7594.
