TCSW: Lunch and learn: innovation and solving the problem of food waste

As part of the Food & AG track during Twin Cities Startup Week, JoAnne Berkenkamp, Senior Advocate for NRDC, dove into how solving the problem of global food waste starts with local communities and involves integrated solutions throughout the entire supply chain. Startups and organizations participating included Reinvia, Sofi Taste Kineto, the Cleantech Open’s recently launched Food and Ag vertical, JavaCycle, as well as the Agriculture Utilization Research Institute (AURI).

Lunch was made by local chefs, creating something delicious utilizing products normally thought of as food waste inspired by Dan Barber’s WastED.
