Thursday, April 5, 2012 - 9:00am to 10:00am
Although a minority player in the overall product environmental footprint, packaging –when designed as a critical value input – can be the hero of the sustainable product supply chain. This session will introduce theFood Waste Opportunities and Challenges Project, hosted by the Grocery Manufacturers Association.We’ll learn more about this three year, cross-industry initiative that brings together the manufacturing, retail grocery, and restaurant industries to tackle the challenge of food waste, while also increasing food donation. Creating less food waste is a key aspect of reducing food waste sent to landfill, one of the goals of this project. So, in this session, we’ll alsoexplore packaging science advances that reduce product waste and serve the functional and sustainable product supply chain.
