Unwrapping Solutions: The Role of Packaging in Food Waste (Presented in partnership with Sustainable Packaging Coalition)

The right packaging is an important way to help consumers reduce food waste in their homes. So how are manufacturers rethinking packaging to prioritize food waste reduction? From dynamic shelf-life labels that monitor freshness to plant-based stickers that slow down ripening rates and minimize microbial growth, new solutions are emerging to both protect food and reduce food waste, while also cutting down on excessive packaging. This session will share insights and guidance from the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, as well as highlight brands and innovators leading the charge on redesigning packaging to reduce waste.
