Presenter: Jo Griffiths
Plastics and packaging are fast becoming public enemy number one, but packaging solutions have been extending shelf life and preserving the quality, safety, and integrity of food and beverage for years, while facilitating complex global supply chains. Will changes in the quantity of packaging used lead to an increase in food waste? This session will kick off with words from WRAP on the status of food waste today via video, to be followed up by our expert in food contact packaging. Discover innovations in sustainable packaging and what standards industry are working on relating to reduction in waste through the circular economy model. Looking for a balanced approach between packaging reduction and food waste, this session should particularly benefit those hoping to make a difference in relation to UN SDGs 2, 12, 14 and 15.
