Total Food 2017 will be the 5th 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 provides 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 explored ranged from the adding of value to co-products through to the recovery of energy from waste streams.


Total Food 2017 is organised by staff from the Biorefinery Centre at Quadram Institute Bioscience.

Registrations are now CLOSED.
