AWRE tackles the topic of food waste

The Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) is where the waste, recycling and resource recovery sectors come together to find solutions for a cleaner, more sustainable future. This year’s event will be held in October at ICC Sydney.

The need for new and better waste solutions has never been more crucial, with Australians looking to the waste and recycling industry to drive positive change.

With over 120 brands represented, attendees can expect to connect with solution providers and industry associations, such as Wastemaster Pacific, Clean & Green Organics, Cardia Bioplastics, ORG Organics Recycling Group and Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), to discover solutions which convert food and organic waste into re-usable resources including the latest aerobic digesters, composters, collection containers and sustainable food packaging.

Waste and recycling communities use this event as a platform to learn and collaborate, with the AWRE Speaker Series tackling the industry’s most challenging and compelling issues. Presented over two dedicated stages in 2019, Industry Forum (presented in partnership with NSW EPA) attendees will discover the latest trends and insights affecting the wider industry.

The ‘Food Waste Stage’ will debut this year, facilitating discussion and focus on the national issue of food waste. Featured speakers will include food waste pioneers Katy Barfield, Founder and CEO of Yume Food Australia, and Ronni Kahn, CEO and Founder of OzHarvest. Session topics will address ‘Australia’s Best Practice Food Services Guidelines’ and ‘The Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste’, plus much more.
