Food Waste: How to Reduce it! | FV Rotterdam

About the event

On March 14th, Female Ventures Rotterdam is hosting their next event around a very pressing matter in current times: Food Waste: How to Reduce it.

About one-third of all the world’s food goes to waste. A great deal of perfectly good food is never eaten and gets thrown away in household rubbish bins. Large quantities of food are also lost in harvesting, storage and transportation. Food waste is not just a waste of money; it also wastes valuable resources like water, soil and energy.

These are facts that we all know, but when it comes to actively improve this pressing issue – we fall short of daily solutions. That’s why we have brought together these 3 amazing speakers and entrepreneurs to reshape our view on food waste:

Arabella van Aartrijk

Fulltime waste warrior @Ugly Food Rescuers Club and Circular chef @BlueCity and @Food and Footnotes

Annette Behrens & Carina Hesper

Founders of Toffe Peren | Quirky Carrots – a food photography project



Fröbel Center, Westerstraat 79A 3016DG Rotterdam
