Event description

Description

A call out to companies who are struggling with a food waste of loss problem. Join us for an information session from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries on the Fight Food Waste SME Solutions Fund.

Do you have a regular cost to remove food waste or lost production from your business? Are you sending lost food, manufacturing scrapes or damaged product to animal feed? Are you literally washing potential sellable product down the drain during clean downs and change overs? Are your turning produce back into your soils because it can’t reach the market? Have you ever considered that there might be a better way? A way to solve this puzzle but don’t know who to ask for help?

To address this challenge, Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL) is funding the Fight Food Waste SME Solutions Centre, an industry-led grant program being rolled out by the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre (FFW CRC) in partnership with the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF). This $200k grant program offers matched funds of up to $50k to help SMEs find solutions to their agri-food waste challenges.

This unique fund will not only provide you with matched funding up to $50K, but will also connect you with potentially 11 innovative solutions, 6 coming from QLD research university and institutes. You will also receive expert training and mentoring on how to maximise the potential of your solution and hopefully start turning that cost into a commercial output.

Applications are simple and quick and you can even get help from the program to complete your 1 pager, and if a solution to your problem cannot be found there is no cost to apply. Come and meet the program facilitator and discuss your opportunity. Solving your food waste problem has never been easier.
