Setting the Table: How to Engage Consumers on Food Waste

What’s needed to shift our overall culture to place more value on food? Consumers generate more surplus food than any other sector, and while poor food management is a big cause, a portion of that waste occurs because of decisions made by other actors throughout the supply chain. Tune in as leaders across brands, local government and academia share the unique ways that they are leveraging their influence to reshape consumer environments and decrease waste.

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.
