Leaf No Waste is a research collaboration between TU Dublin and Teagasc. Our research addresses food and packaging waste by building resilience along the supply lines. Fresh produce quality diminishes within alternative plastic packaging, running the risk of indirect food loss. Using silicon can alleviate this problem. Our goal is to assess quality and waste of silicon-enriched fresh salad leaves using alternative plastic packaging solutions. This multi-disciplinary research is possible with the support of Science Foundation Ireland.
