TOSS UP: FOOD RECOVERY
October 17, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT
On October 17th, 2014 The Mixing Bowl organized this event at the UC Berkeley Innovation Lab to discuss the topic of food waste with key solutionists in attendance. Here is the presentation that we used to “set the table” for the discussion.
This “toss-up” event allowed for focused discussions amongst entrepreneurs and innovators to explore the opportunities and challenges that come with creating a scalable and profitable food recovery sector and the role technology can play. The discussion included panelists from the Zapping Food Waste panel at the Zero Food Waste Forum on October 16th with the following questions guiding the discussion…
Who are the current players looking to create a scalable, for-profit food recovery sector? What are they doing and where are they doing it?
What gaps and weaknesses exist in the value chain to scale a profitable food recovery sector?
What are comparable markets that could be studied to identify lessons learned for food recovery?
What role can technology play to accelerate the development of a profitable food recovery sector?
How can existing players collaborate to help scale a profitable food recovery sector?
