2 billion people in the world are obese. 800 million people go to bed hungry. 30% of all food produced is lost or wasted before being consumed. And, the population is growing. Something needs to be done. What can companies do and what is the role of packaging in making sure that food safely reaches the consumer and stays fresh as long as possible?
