The hospitality industry and its service providers have been seriously impacted by COVID-19. One opportunity to create value for the industry is to innovate food waste prevention services. In a previous webinar with Gijs Langeveld, we discussed innovation strategies to improve the sustainable hospitality industry.

This time, we focus on the actual implementation of innovation strategies by companies. In this webinar, Gijs Langeveld will interview Benjamin Lephilibert, Managing Director at LightBlue Environmental Consulting.
