ACR+ organised a two-day event providing a comprehensive look at the achievements of the FOODRUS and CO-FRESH projects on 13-14 March, in Brussels. Participants delved into the outcomes of the FOODRUS project, which has been dedicated to creating more resilient food systems in Europe through circular solutions to prevent food losses and waste. The event featured presentations on eco-innovative solutions, digital tools for data collection and monitoring, and co-creative methodologies employed in various living labs across Europe, underscoring the collaborative efforts to address food waste challenges. 

Attendees also had the opportunity to learn about the real-world impact of the projects through presentations on the three FOODRUS pilots in Denmark, Spain, and Slovakia. These pilots focused on implementing practical solutions to reduce food waste, such as changing menu options in university cafeterias, improving food transportation processes, and promoting the use of bread leftovers through innovative fermentation processes and recipe development. The events provided valuable insights into the progress made by both projects and facilitated discussions on the challenges and opportunities in creating sustainable agri-food value chains.
