Speaker Sharing Session 1

Closing the Loop: Converting Waste to Food

Date: 23 July 2022

Time: 1030-1200 hours

Speakers:

Mr Barnabas Chan, Managing Director, Bountifood

Dr. Samuel Gan, Scientific Consultant, Bountifood

 

Session synopsis:

A resilient food system should be one that is designed with the end in mind. We often use the best method we can find to meet a need, but without realising that it will create a new set of problems. Without having the end in mind, we could create food that damages our health, or create waste from food production that we could not handle. The world was created to have more than enough for its inhabitants. We will look at some of the issues faced by our food system and examine some innovations which could help to close the loop in our food production system.
