Sustainability Showcase Series — Emily Darchuk, founder of Wheyward Spirits
October 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm EDT
Join the Sustainability Institute for its Sustainability Showcase Speaker Series, featuring inspiring leaders from a wide range of fields who work to advance sustainability. This year’s theme for our programming is Building Better Bonds, stories of bridging divides, healing rifts, and building community to advance collective goals.
Emily Darchuk is a food scientist and the founder of Wheyward Spirits, a company that uses leftover whey from dairy processing to create an alcoholic spirit that’s helping prevent food waste. Every year, hundreds of billions of pounds leave the dairy food chain as waste, putting a strain on the ecosystem. Darchuk will discuss her innovative solution to create a viable new product that also helps break the cycle of waste, making food chains more efficient and effective.
All showcases are free and open to all. Pre-registration for the online webinar is requested at this link.
