After its launching six months ago, the Food Waste Recovery book is continuously raising interest among researchers, academics, students, professionals and industrial partners active in the field. Indeed, thousands’ of colleagues have already joined our Linkedin and Facebook communities, participate in our open forums, discuss their needs, make questions, refer their case scenarios, indicate their problems and finally look for solutions and consulting in our interactive Food Waste Recovery (FWR) Group.
