Sustainable Materials

Sustainability—particularly regulatory and public concerns around single-use packaging waste—is combining with other powerful trends to drive major changes in consumer packaging. An innovative sustainable packaging aims to address food waste and loss reduction by preserving food quality, as well as food safety issues by preventing food-borne diseases and food chemical contamination.

Essentially, the sustainable packaging needs to be made from eco-friendly materials, biodegradable and able to be either reused or recycled.
