Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste Training Course

The AIP has developed a new half-day training course on The Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste with all of industry invited to attend. Over one third of the food grown for human consumption is lost or wasted between farm and fork. In Australia it is estimated to be valued at $20 billion per year, with half of this occurring in households. There are many reasons why this loss is occurring. There are also many opportunities to be more efficient with resources. This course will provide participants with an introduction to the seriousness of food waste in this country and globally and how we can all make a difference as team members of the product-packaging design process to this issue. It will cover packaging design criteria for Best-Practice Save Food Packaging Design developments that should be considered. With hands-on and practical case studies participants will learn how designing packaging to save food actually saves food.
