Aim of the meeting

Total Food 2014 is the fourth in a series of international conferences which focus on the sustainable exploitation of agri-food co-products and related biomass, thereby helping to minimise waste.

Under the auspices of the Royal Society of Chemistry (Food Group), this three day event will provide an open forum to highlight recent developments and to facilitate knowledge transfer between representatives of the agri-food industries, scientific research community, legal experts on food related legislation and waste management, and consumer organisations.

Themes to be explored will range from the adding of value to co-products through to the recovery of energy from waste streams.

The 2014 conference will be run by staff from the Biorefinery Centre at the Institute of Food Research & University of York in collaboration with the COST Action Network TD1203 Food waste valorisation for sustainable chemicals, materials and fuels (EUBis), and will comprise plenary lectures, short talks, poster sessions, and focussed workshops. Abstracts are currently invited and proceedings will be published.

Who should attend

Food and related industry and agri-food chain professionals interested in maximising utilisation of co-products, whole crop use and sustainability.
