The Technology to Tackle Food Waste

food packaging equipmentPackaging equipment can play a crucial role in preventing and minimizing food waste, Ulrich Nielsen (Ishida Europe’s solutions sales director) tells Packaging Europe.

One third of all food produced globally is wasted or lost annually. Of this, one third is lost after purchase by the consumer.

Packaging has a key role in helping to minimize food waste – protecting and preserving it throughout the supply chain and at the place of consumption. It can also respond to changing demographics. In the UK, for example, the Office for National Statistics has reported that 63% of households now contain just one or two persons. This has driven the development and introduction of smaller and segmented packs, which allow for effective portion control.
