Food packaging plays an important role in ensuring food quality and safety when food products are being prepared, transported, and displayed. However, due to the growing accumulation of packaging within the natural environment and most notably the world oceans, companies are seeking to reduce the amount and types of packaging material used.
To date, Origin Green members have committed to over 120 packaging targets. In order to assist members further, Origin Green will be joined by Repak to provide an update on recent packaging legislation and challenges, and Mabbett to provide an overview on Origin Green’s new packaging target guidance document.
