Third Annual Champions 12.3 Progress Report now Available

In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which include Target 12.3’s call for halving food waste and reducing food losses worldwide by 2030. This third annual progress report assesses advances by governments and companies over the past 12 months relative to a three-step approach for reducing food loss and waste: target, measure, and act. The AIP recently joined Friends of Champions 12.3 as a part of the Institute's commitment to the National Food Waste Strategy.


AIP is committed to NZ Food and Beverage Industry

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) proved once again that it is committed to the New Zealand Food and Beverage industries by taking a lead role in running quality training and education programs as a part of FoodTech Packtech, which was held in Auckland last week. Over the three days the AIP provided much needed education and discussions on key issues that are challenging the food and beverage industries including Fighting Food Waste, Save Food & Sustainable Packaging Design, the issues within end-of-life recycling facilities and a better understanding of lifecycle analysis. What was clear is that the conversation has only just begun, and the industry has many unanswered questions.
