Registration is open for the Second USDA Food Loss and Waste Innovation Fair on September 14th.  The virtual event showcases the latest food loss and waste mitigation technologies, innovations and programs developed by USDA, academic institutions, local governments, and businesses.  


USDA says the Innovation Fair is designed for everyone – from food scientists and industry experts to community gardeners and those curious about food loss and waste efforts.  The fair includes presentations by 12 food loss and waste reduction experts and will feature 36 exhibit booths. Attendees are invited to visit the virtual booths, and text or video chat with representatives in real-time. Attendees can also interact with other participants in a virtual networking lounge. Also participating in this year's fair are U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions—businesses and organizations that have committed to reducing food loss and waste in their own operations in the United States by 50% by the year 2030.


Visit the USDA's Website for more information, or to register for free.
