Reducing Food Loss Workshops

Supported by Agricultural Adaptation Council funding, the Ontario Produce Marketing Association (OPMA) is partnering with and engaging Value Chain Management International (VCMI) to undertake a project that aims to reduce food loss and waste (FLW) along the value chain: grower, packer, shipper, wholesaler, distributor, retail or foodservice, and ultimately the consumer. The purpose of the project is to raise industry awareness and create the skills required to measurably reduce FLW in Ontario’s wider horticultural industry and markets.

These outcomes will be achieved by working with chosen industry leaders/OPMA members to create materials and daily management tools, which will be shared with industry through a series of eight workshops, media articles, industry newsletters, and webinars. Industry leaders will be trained in how to identify and address the root causes of FLW, resulting in opportunities to improve the competitiveness of Ontario’s fresh produce industry by implementing sustainable programs for reducing FLW along the entire value chain.

Targeting a minimum of 20 individuals per workshop (i.e., 160 individuals in total), the workshops are expected to involve a one-day classroom and one-day value chain walk format. Materials developed for the workshops and training will be shared with the produce industry and other non-produce food industries.

$25 will be charged to cover the cost of lunch which will be provided.
