Minimising Food Waste
All the products we consume have an environmental cost. This ranges from the energy required to grow, transport and process the raw materials used, to the environmental impact it has when disposed of.
Food wastage brings a double whammy. More food needs to be produced to compensate for the amount that is thrown away. Furthermore, this waste then becomes a pollutant itself, as well as producing other environmentally damaging products such as methane.
While some packaging is undoubtedly excessive, cartons actually help to reduce food waste, which studies have shown actually cause more environmental damage than efficient packaging. Our cartons do their job effectively, safely packing more than 67,385 billion litres of food and drink products throughout the world a year.
