Hi Helder! Thank you for highlighting these projects. I really like The Visionary Kitchen because, not only does it put food waste to use, it brings people together, especially because the dinners are limited to 10 people.

Hi Kate! I was just amazed with other stories at highlighting the food waste problem, like the Original Rotterdam Fruitleather, which turn 7000 kilos of rejected fruit and vegetables into a new material (, or the Wonderful Waste Ball, by Tomorrow’s Meatball explorative project which explores this and other future food options ( There's an amazing range of creative solutions out there to inspire.

Thanks Helder! Fruitleather is an unusual use of food waste that I never even thought about before. It would be interesting to see and feel the consistency of the material.
