Two new projects to tackle food waste


Two projects will receive funding this year from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine’s Rural Innovation and Development Fund, for initiatives aimed at reducing food waste generated by food businesses, retailer/wholesalers, or suppliers in rural areas.

Making the announcement of the successful projects with associated funding of almost €190,000, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed, said: “I believe that these two initiatives – one from Food Cloud Hubs, an Origin Green partner; and the other from the Clean Technology Centre in the Cork Institute of Technology – will make a valuable contribution to reducing food waste, with significant environmental and social benefits."
