CTC are currently working with BIM on an innovative food waste based project called Food Heroes. This Interreg funded project aims to support businesses (and industry sectors) address the issue of food waste in innovative ways. Some of the things that are being considered are using by-products (e.g. fish sausages, mushroom stalk burgers), creating markets (e.g. male billy goat meat – lots get destroyed as only the females are needed for milk) and reducing waste at source (e.g. improved vegetable grading).

As part of the project there is a Food Heroes Award which aims to encourage businesses to showcase their solutions to food waste. If you are a businesses that might fit the bill and would like to participate please check out the awards link: https://foodheroesaward.eu/page/go
