The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is to discuss the important role that packaging plays in minimising food waste at up-coming APCO Webinar on 26 August
This webinar will be looking at the journey of food from farm to fork and the important role packaging plays in food waste prevention. Globally, one-third of all food produced for human consumption around the world goes to waste and here in Australia the government estimates food waste costs the Australian economy $20 billion each year. As Australian businesses and communities look to phase-out single-use plastic packaging, and redesign their packaging for recoverability, food waste avoidance is another critical issue packaging designers must consider.
Topics for discussion include:
- An update on the research and projects being delivered within the Fight Food Waste CRC – an organisation that brings together industry, research and the community to capitalise on Australia’s food waste opportunities.
- Training, tools and resources for businesses working to reduce food waste through packaging
- Save Food Packaging Design Guidelines
- Award-winning Best Practice examples of Save Food Packaging Design
