Food Waste Inititative
Food Waste- Rural Innovation and Development Fund
SECAD Partnership is working with Savour Food, a food waste reduction initiative working with food processors, restaurants and food retailers across East Cork to reduce food waste and associated costs.
The project is being led by the Clean Technology Centre (CTC) at Cork Institute of Technology. CTC
will be partnered by the Local Enterprise Office (LEO) for South Cork, Taste Cork (an initiative of Cork County LEO) and SECAD.
Getting involved in Savour Food gives food businesses access to free consultancy from experts in
waste prevention and resource management, training, and a platform to share experiences and solutions within the local food industry. The project is focusing on the Midleton Rural Economic Development Zone (REDZ) and businesses involved in the food processing, retail, accommodation and food service sectors are participating.
This pilot programme is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine – Rural Innovation and Development Fund.
