EFFPA at FUSIONS EU Platform Meeting

On 31 October 2014 EFFPA President Paul Featherstone presented the contribution of the former foodstuff processors sector towards reducing food waste at the 2nd FUSIONS European Stakeholder Platform in Brussels. For EFFPA it was a positive experience to showcase its expertise in animal feed solutions for food losses to an audience of food waste experts. 

In his presentation, Featherstone highlighted EFFPA’s call to governmental bodies to foster compliance with the food waste hierarchy in the food processing industry, as currently still many former foodstuffs eligible for feed use are used for bioenergy uses. He also made clear former foodstuff processors don’t enter into competition with food banks, as most of the former foodstuffs used have an status (intermediate, broken, slightly damaged) which would make human consumption applications extremely complicated.
