REDUCING FOOD WASTE
Food waste is a huge issue that the world is facing. It’s a long and complicated journey from farm to table, and 54% of food is lost between harvest and transportation. Packaging can play a large role in keeping food fresh during its journey. To learn more about agricultural packaging, check out our blog. http://bit.ly/1sOWZxk
On a global bases, 1/3 of food produced for
humans is lost.
These losses are driven by: post-harvest transport, processing, spoilage and
damage during distribution, and loss at the consumption level.
And it’s not just limited to industrialized nations.
Protection in the supply chain
Some products need to be transported vast
distances through complex supply chains.
