Hazel Technologies' Dr. Aidan Mouat Provides Input at Sustainable Produce Summit
CHICAGO, IL - Hazel Technologies Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Aidan Mouat, is preparing to get behind the mic as he will be making a panel appearance at the third annual Sustainable Produce Summit (SPS) taking place today, June 2. The event, which is hosted by Farm Journal, will kick off the West Coast Produce Expo (WCPE), bringing together fresh produce professionals from across the supply chain all in the name of sustainability.
“The West Coast is the ideal destination for sustainability discussions in the ag industry. California’s governor has budgeted $385 million for the state’s agricultural sustainability this year alone,” said Mouat. “I look forward to discussing ways Hazel Tech® is changing the landscape for food waste reduction and what future tech has in store not only for our company but the world of agriculture as a whole.”
Mouat will be taking part in the Waste Not, Want Not: Advancements Towards Zero Good Waste panel, a press release stated. He will be one of four food waster experts sharing how fresh produce companies can reduce, and even eliminate, food waste for a more sustainable future.
The discussion will be the first one in the summit, starting at 1:10 p.m. PST. Other panelists include Luis Yepiz, Chief Procurement Officer at FarmLink Project; Amy Tranzillo, Global Marketing Director at AgroFresh; and Stephanie Morris, Sustainability Coordinator at Jimbo’s.
SPS and WCPE will be held in-person this year in Palm Springs, California. Hazel Tech, known for its shelf-life extending solutions, will be located at booth #410 at WCPE, which will take place from June 3–4.
