Food for Thought: is social enterprise the solution to the global food waste problem?
Join LSE Generate for this exciting panel that brings together entrepreneurs to discuss whether social enterprise is the solution to the global food waste problem.
In 2011, the FAO produced a landmark study that revealed a third of food produced for human consumption went to waste. The main culprits were Western Europe and the US. What has been done since then to address this pressing environmental concern, and how can we help?
LSE Generate is running a panel to explore how the entrepreneurial space within the UK has responded to this ever-growing problem. We'll be hosting a variety of entrepreneurs to discuss their journey into sustainability, as well as how their own unique businesses are working to lessen UK food waste.
You'll have the opportunity to ask the entrepreneurs your own personal questions, and be able to taste some of the unique food and drink products from their ventures! Stay tuned for more details, and book a place quickly as this is sure to be a sold-out event.
