Fresh Food Waste
Americans annually waste 36 million tons of food, worth a staggering $162 billion! (And, much of this waste occured during the holidays.)
Our brochure, Reducing Fresh Food Waste: The Role of Packaging, explains the rather significant roles that packaging plays in reducing this waste, ensuring a sustainable food supply. By providing product protection; shelf life extension; freshness & nutrition maintenance; and portion control; a little bit of packaging can reduce waste while also protecting economic and environmental resources.
