Kick-off seminar: BREAD
On December 4th, the TIK centre is kick-starting a new project called “Building REsponsibility And Developing Innovative Strategies For Tackling Food Waste (BREAD)".
Reducing the levels of food waste is among the most tangible Sustainable Development Goals. While this goal is widely accepted, the tools require wider studies and reflection. The aim of the BREAD project is to analyze food waste reduction as an important issue for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
The research will look at three levels:
- National policies designed and put in place to regulate the food sector,
- Companies as the main actors of the food industry
- The business/consumer interface, where most waste is generated.
The project is a collaboration between TIK, Østfoldforskning, Matvett AS and Responsible Management Research Center (REMARC) at the University of Pisa.
