Guest Speaker: Dr Steven Lapidge, CEO, Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre
The National Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre
Food waste is a global issue with losses valued at $1.6 trillion p.a. In November 2017 Australia committed to a goal of halving per capita global food waste by 2030 at the retail and consumer levels and reducing food losses along production and supply chains )including postharvest losses) through the National Food Waste Strategy (NFWS).
Dr Steven Lapidge is the inaugural CEO of the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre (FFW CRC). He has spent much of his 20-year career working for or with agribusiness CRCs, with a strong focus on new product development and commercialisation. Steve led the development of the FFW CRC bid and in recent years has represented Australia at G20, OECD and national food waste forums. He is a member of the National Food Waste Strategy Steering Committee and a Non-Executive Director of the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology.
Steve’s qualifications include a BSc(Hons), PhD and an MBA. He is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the European Summer School for Advanced Management (Denmark).
