Food Processing and the Circular Economy

Alison Springate Guelph Smart City Office • 5 November 2020

Making the circular economy real

In this webinar, Cher Mereweather, Provision Coalition and Andrew McCue, Metabolic will share their insights and experiences around the food processing sector in the Guelph-Wellington County region and in the Netherlands.

Guelph and Wellington County were awarded a Smart Cities Challenge prize in 2019, to implement their vision of ‘Our Food Future’. Outcomes of this work include new circular food businesses, increasing economic revenues by reducing and re-imagining food waste and increasing access to affordable, nutritious food.

This webinar will present an update on this work, with a focus of how circular economy principles are being infused into food processing systems and how the Netherlands’ well-developed knowledge in this space, is being deployed to complement made-in-Canada expertise.
