Third food systems stakeholder workshop for FRED – Food Resource Efficiency Decision support project

Information about sustainable food system workshop for livestock farmers on May 7th, 2024

FoodCloud, a leading Irish food redistribution organization, and an interdisciplinary team of researchers from Munster Technological University Kerry and University College Dublin are working together to support efficiency and prevent food loss and waste in Irish food supply chains, through the Science Foundation Ireland-funded “FRED: Food Resource Efficiency Decision support” project.

The initial phase of the FRED project has focused on better understanding the challenges and opportunities for food loss and waste prevention in different sectors of the Irish food system, including food systems stakeholder interviews with food producers, processors, retailers, and hospitality and food service businesses, public bodies, non-governmental organisations, policy-makers, and food systems researchers,

In March 2024, we launched a series of food systems stakeholder workshops as part of the project, that aims to bring stakeholders together to map out the priorities for sustainable and efficient food supply in their sector and collaboratively develop solutions with the research team. The next workshop will focus on farmers involved in all animal production enterprises, including poultry (meat and layers), pigs, beef, dairy, sheep and goat farmers, and farmers with a tillage/livestock or horticulture/livestock mix.

This workshop will take place on May 7th, at Munster Technological University Kerry campus (Tralee). Please feel welcome to join, network with other producers and food businesses and share your challenges and ideas with peers. Transport costs can be covered on request. Register at by May 7th:
