Total Food 2020 will be a gathering of industrialists, academics, policy-makers and charities with the common goal of protecting the environment and promoting human and animal health through waste minimisation and the optimal exploitation of co-products. This requires multidisciplinary actions spanning social, technological, economic, environmental and political factors. Total Food is unique in bringing this community together to identify and tackle the challenges to the food and agricultural sectors in the sustainable production and use of food.
