The Food Waste Challenge Amsterdam

Description of the project

On 10 February, FSE Network organized Europe’s first Food Waste Challenge. The Food Waste Challenge helped participants build their own social enterprise to reduce food waste in one day. In one day 35 participants were inspired to create their own enterprise to reduce food waste. Watch the video here.

Goals of the project

The Food Waste Challenge brought together 35 participants. 6 teams formed during one day and developed an idea to reduce food waste. After the Food Waste Challenge, FoodWIN coached 2 of those 6 teams who wanted to continue. One of them developed an educational programme on food waste. A second started a social business to make desserts from bread waste.

Role of FoodWIN

FoodWIN developed the innovation process, gathered participants and followed up these participants after the Food Waste Challenge.
