|Opportunity mapping for horticultural waste streams
Approximately 74 per cent of Canadian fruit and vegetable waste occurs before reaching consumers for a myriad of reasons.

To tackle this issue, Vineland examined underutilized waste streams for the top seven Canadian produce crops and identified the range of opportunities for managing these by-products.
