New Hampshire has started a Food Waste and Composting Stakeholder Group to look at increasing the diversion of wasted food. CET participates in this group and recently spoke about commercial food waste systems at a New Hampshire conference run by the Northeast Resource Recovery Association. CET sees opportunities for jumpstarting the marketplace in New Hampshire and adding to the efforts already underway.
