INDUSTRYNEWS from the Research Chefs Association Rethinking the future of food waste Introducing the ReThink Waste Initiative The Research Chefs Association Student Committee is proud to announce the first annual ReThink Waste Initiative - a three-fold project that will address the issue of food waste. The Student Food Waste Product Development Competition will allow RCA student members to develop a commercialized retail product from a list of "wasted" food ingredients provided by ReThink Waste Initiative sponsors. There will also be a Research Poster Presentation extension of the ReThink Waste Initiative where students will choose their own topic and present ways to minimize food waste. Both competitions will provide students with a platform to showcase innovative solutions to reducing, averting and/or re-using food waste at the 2017 RCA Annual Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The winning team will receive a monetary prize and be featured in Culinology magazine. Are you ready to help solve the issue of food waste? Reach out to rethinkwaste@culinology.org to share your thoughts and proposal. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. ©Adobe Stock tips for rethinking waste from a consumer perspective Did you know that consumers are responsible for 31% of all food waste, according to the USDA? Here are five tips for how consumers can decrease their impact on food waste: 1) Leafy greens about to expire may be fermented into umami-based kimchi, which gets more flavorful over time. Some food scientists see fermentation as composting 2.0. 2) If kimchi is too powerful of a flavor for family or friends, you may extend the shelf life of greens like Swiss chard and kale by putting them in a knotted plastic bag with a few tablespoons of cold water. 3) Plan meals in advance and cook in large portions to save time. 4) Portion home meals. You can't control what they're served in a restaurant, but they can at home. 5) When produce starts to get soft, put it in a cup of cold water for about an hour and the ingredient will regain much of its crisp texture. It is up to everyone, including consumers and consumer educators, to reuse and reduce food waste.
