Presentation title: Sanitisers in a time of COVID-19 webinar

Presenter: Caroline Snyman (Marketing Management Innovation Leader at Distell) and Dr Stefan Hayward (Department of Food Science - Stellenbosch University)

Sanitisers in a time of COVID-19!
The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol as one of the measures to fight the spread of COVID-19. The presentation will discuss Distell's motivation to start producing sanitisers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic) and how they are distributing these sanitisers.

Food waste - wasted opportunities or a lost cause?
Current global statistics suggest that up to one third of all food produced for human consumption is wasted. According to The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, most losses in Sub-Saharan Africa occur during production, handling and processing, as opposed to wastage by consumers. Join us as we discuss finding alternative uses for seemingly useless "waste streams" and how they were recently able to show that returned bread could be used as feedstock for fermentation to ultimately produce a hand sanitiser made with bioethanol.
