Food Waste Reduction

Food Waste Reduction Projects  

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine has provided support under the Rural Innovation Development Fund 2018 for organisations and economic operators involved in Food Waste Reduction to promote reducing food waste generated by food businesses, retailer/wholesalers or suppliers in rural areas.  A request for tender was published in June 2018 with the objective of providing funding to activities or items that relate to the promotion and/or development of innovative food waste reduction projects. Clean Technology Centre, Cork Institute of Technology was awarded the contract and funding is being provided.  This project will further enhance the work previously funded to identify, target and address what is a rapidly growing issue in Ireland and globally. A second project to design a best practice Food Waste prevention programme for business through a range of activities from O’Connell Marketing/Taste Wexford was awarded €19,926.
