In the U.S., more than one-third of all available food goes uneaten through loss or waste. Businesses are creating solutions to address food loss and waste throughout the food system – from farm to table.

On May 26, the U.S. Department of Agriculture will host a free, virtual innovation fair to highlight businesses that are creating state-of-the-art technical solutions to reduce food loss and waste.

Participants will host virtual booths where they showcase their state-of-the-art food loss and waste activities, products, and innovations. Examples may include new packaging that keeps produce fresher, longer, or food products made from misshapen fruit. The fair will also showcase food sector industry leaders who are committed to reducing food loss and waste in their operations.

This innovation fair is for people and organizations (including businesses, nonprofits, researchers, and food sector leaders) who want to learn about the latest developments in preventing, reducing, or repurposing food loss and waste.

Register today for the USDA Food Loss and Waste Innovation Fair.
