MARK LINEHAN to chair a conversation with industry thought leaders, discussing topics including:  has the HaFSA worked, how will Courthauld 2025 take things forward, are voluntary agreements enough, is there evidence of progress.  What are the realities and challenges of reducing food waste? Do customers care, what would encourage you to do more, is zero waste to landfill just a dream?  What more do we need:  campaigning and lobbying?  A change in legislation? Can we trust the industry/market?

LANDFILL ALTERNATIVES  - A REALISTIC SOLUTION?
Are the landfill alternatives just a distraction/disincentive to what we should be doing – i.e. reducing the amount of food we throw away? Do we really need a food waste hierarchy? Do we need to better distinguish between surplus and waste?  Does the business model of the AD sector encourage food waste, is AD an efficient technology? Is the effective re-distribution of surplus food possible, what are the barriers to more restaurants doing it?  How likely is it that we will see a change in legislation, what are the risks, why are some people against it, how would it work?
