New Methodology for Assessing and Quantifying Post-Harvest Loss and Food Waste within a Value Chain
Event Date: May 28, 2020
Time: 10:00 am to 11:00 am America/New York
Location: United States
Online: Online Event
Host: Consortium for Innovation in Post-Harvest Loss and Food Waste Reduction
Wageningen University and Research have developed a new methodology for assessing and quantifying loss and waste within a value chain. The developers of the methodology will use the webinar to describe its application, how it could be used to assess loss and waste, and then take questions from attendees. The Consortium will be using this methodology for future value chain assessments and this webinar is designed to introduce it to the broader Consortium membership and to other interested parties outside of the Consortium.
This webinar will be the first webinar in the Consortium webinar series. Stay tuned for future announcements of the next set of webinar topics and dates.
Jan Broeze has a background in Applied Mathematics and has more than 20 years of experience in understanding causal relations in food processing with a process analysis approach. Main application domains are process optimisation and valorisation of by-products. He holds the position of Senior Scientist, Sustainable Processing & Process Optimisation at Wageningen Food & Biobased Research and contributes to eco-sustainable development of agri-food chains through increasing valorisation of by-products. He therefore developed a protocol that not only addresses potential uses from a product perspective, but also initiates the development of a marketable and demand- oriented products. He plays and played a role in the CCAFS project on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CGIAR) and EU REFRESH (H2020)
In his current positions of Senior Project Manager Supply Chain Development and sustainable food chains he combines his 20 years of experience in the field of product quality driven (international) supply chain management with project management. For 10 years he has been involved in several (international) projects that focus on preventing and reducing food waste and food losses in food chains.
