Date: 28.11.2023
The 2nd Local Working Group Meeting held at Anton Riepl Meat Processing on November 28th, 2023, was a dynamic step towards a more sustainable food industry in Upper Austria. Leaders from businesses, government, and communities gathered to tackle key challenges facing our local food systems.

From reducing single-use packaging to embracing smarter, more efficient production methods, discussions were lively and solutions-focused. Participants explored practical ways to cut down waste in retail while ensuring food safety remains top-notch. They also dove into how new technologies like AI can help businesses thrive economically while being kinder to the environment.

The meeting highlighted the importance of simpler rules and better funding to support these changes. Consumer expectations and new regulations are pushing for more transparency in how our food is produced and packaged, paving the way for labels that show products’ sustainability credentials.


As we wrap up, one thing is clear: collaboration between industry, government, and consumers is vital to making these ambitious goals a reality. Together, we’re turning challenges into opportunities and charting a course towards a greener, more sustainable future for food in Upper Austria.
