Waste is and always has been a significant problem for the value added-ag industry cluster. The volume of waste that can be created during food and agricultural processing is rather staggering. The growing use of converting waste-to-value as a method of disposal is creating opportunities for industries to generate a value stream while reducing their environmental footprint. Join us Wednesday, September 13th in Jacksonville, NC to learn more about converting waste streams into a value streams. This event is open to the public but is ideal for food and beverage manufacturers.
