Read the full story at Waste360.

More than 1,200 attendees and nearly 80 exhibitors gathered together at the NYC Food Waste Fair yesterday in Brooklyn, N.Y., to discuss the issue of food waste and share innovative and effective food waste reduction solutions.

At the event, attendees were able to participate in a number of workshops offered in three tracks: prevention, recovery and recycling. The prevention track workshops focused on managing food as you are using it so you can prevent waste from occurring, the recovery track workshops explained how you can save your unwanted food scraps to be sent to others in need and the recycling track workshops offered information about turning your food energy into healthy soil or energy.

In addition to the wide variety of workshops offered, the fair included four panel discussions and a sustainable cooking demonstration and discussion with well-known chefs.
