APCO Webinar | The role of packaging in minimising food waste

Date: August 26, 2020

Start Time: 2:00 pm
End Time: 3:00 pm



Date and Time

Wed 26 August 2020

2:00 pm – 3:00 pm AEST


Join the APCO team for our weekly Community Meetings to explore the sustainability topics that matter most to our network.


This week we are looking at the journey of food from farm to fork– and the important role packaging plays in food waste prevention. Globally, one-third of all food produced for human consumption around the world goes to waste and here in Australia the government estimates food waste costs the Australian economy $20 billion each year. As Australian businesses and communities look to phase-out single-use plastic packaging, and redesign their packaging for recoverability, food waste avoidance is another critical issue packaging designers must consider.

Topics for discussion include:

  • An update on the research and projects being delivered within the Fight Food Waste CRC – an organisation that brings together industry, research and the community to capitalise on Australia’s food waste opportunities.
  • Training, tools and resources for businesses working to reduce food waste through packaging

Speakers TBC.
