AIP The Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste training course

The AIP ran their new half-day training course ‘The Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste’ with Dr Karli Verghese FAIP, Associate Professor, RMIT, as the course lecturer for this first time this week in Melbourne. The course was interactive and dynamic and allowed all attendees the opportunity to really deep-dive into the true role that packaging can play in minimising food waste. Food Waste is a global issue as it has been estimated that 1/3 of the food grown for human consumption, globally, is wasted each year (~$1 trillion per annum). In Australia, it has been estimated that we waste $20 billion of food per year and $10 Billion of this is within households.
