WORKSHOP: Food Waste Reduction, Oct 18
Businesses can improve financial performance by 10-plus per cent by implementing simple practices that lead to more effective processes. In fresh produce, waste typically accounts for 20 per cent of all costs incurred. Reducing waste by one per cent can result in the equivalent of a four per cent increase in revenue.
Businesses who are involved in the Ontario Produce Industry are invited to attend this workshop to identify ways to identify food waste and learn tools to address it.
Participants will receive a process improvement toolkit, including a workbook divided into 10 easy to follow steps. The tools contained in this workbook and kit are intended to be applied to address basic process problems that can be resolved in a relatively short time span without capital investment, delivering measurable results.
Attending the workshop will provide participants with a clearer understanding of:
1) How your business can profit from reducing food loss and waste, and
2) How you can improve your processes to secure the financial benefits described above.
Lunch will be provided. A small fee of $25 will be charged.
