Members of the "Sell More, Waste Less" working group met in Hamburg on June 7th, to discuss next steps on research projects on expiry date discount pricing and collaboration. In addition, the group heard from Cardiff Business School on a new research project on food waste at Ocado, from a start up company that promises to prolong shelf life and from Food Cloud, a not for profit charity that helps retailers efficiently re-distribute food to charities.
Finally, there was a healthy debate and new insights shared from Tesco and GS1 on carriers for expiry dates. Click here to see the agenda. Finally, the ESM once again produced an article on the meeting in their July edition.
The working group, free to attend, and open to any retailer or manufacturer, will meet again in Lisbon, on October 23rd and 24th, where we will be hosted by Sonae.
