MAPP Conference 2017 - Sustainability and Food Waste

The MAPP Centre invites you to the annual one-day MAPP Conference which takes place on 23 November at Hotel Scandic Copenhagen. The theme of this year’s conference is food waste in the entire supply chain.

If you work with food - whether as an expert on product development, retail, marketing and consumer insight, policy making or research - the MAPP Conference gives you a chance to get the latest research-based knowledge on food waste. We will present the latest research findings on factors that have an impact on food waste. We will look at the situation not only in Denmark, but also in Europe, and demonstrate some examples of fighting food waste.

MAPP-Konference: Markedsføring af wellness i fødevaresektoren

Sund spisning lyder for mange som noget med næringsstoftabeller, kedelig mad og løftede pegefingre. Men det er meget mere end det.

I de seneste år vi set en udvikling, hvor god mad ikke bare betyder, at maden skal smage godt — forbrugeren skal også have fornemmelsen af, at han/hun gør noget godt for sig selv. Trenden hedder wellness — inden for fødevarer.

MAPP-konferencen fandt sted i Aarhus den 1. december.
