The University of Sheffield Sustainable Food Futures research group, and N8Agrifood are hosting a one day “innovation forum” workshop. This innovation forms will identify the future research agenda ​and priority research questions​ relating to Food Waste, Food Surplus, Food Loss, and Valorisation in the UK and globally.

This workshop will be facilitated using the methodology ​developed by John Ingram and William Sutherland to determine their priority research questions for the UK food system (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12571-013-0294-4). These research questions helped to set the direction for food researchers in the UK with a focus on how to reach Sustainable Development Goal 12.3: by 2030, to halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses. It is anticipated that outputs from this innovation forum will have similar impact and visibility.

As the themes of Food Waste, Food Surplus, Food Loss, and Valorisation are integrated and interdisciplinary, it is anticipated that this will appeal to a broad range of academics, as well as selected policy makers, stakeholders (primary production; food industry and retail; governmental policy; NGOs/advocacy), and funding organisations. Please note that we have a broad definition of Food Waste that includes overconsumption.

A global network of additional external stakeholders and academics are also anticipated to contribute to question creation, refinement, and ranking as per Ingram and Sutherland's method.

Participation in this event requires active participation in the development of documents after the event. The outputs ​of this workshop will be disseminated as a (i) report, and (ii) as a peer reviewed paper, with all contributors as co-authors.

This project was initiated by Dr Christian Reynolds, Department of Geography, University of Sheffield and is supported by The University of Sheffield Sustainable Food Futures, and N8 Agrifood. This event is is an outcome of a NERC Innovation Placement at the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) (Grant Ref:NE/R007160/1)
