Saturday 6 October 2018
On 28 and 29 September the Witlof Biënnale 2018 (Chicory Biennale) took place in Etten-Leur (NL) to discuss the developments in the chicory sector in Western Europe. BioBoost partner Ilvo was present and discussed in a lecture and panel the possibilities of using chicory residuals for alternative purposes.
The British FoodWasteNet organisation organised in 12 and 13 November in Nottingham (UK) the ‘Field Waste Valorisation - the next steps?’ event. FoodWasteNet is a network organisation that aims for the valorisation of food waste and by-products. BioBoost partners gave two presentations:
