Organiser:COST Action 191249 Re-Thinking Packaging for Circular & Sustainable Food Supply Chains of the Future Pulp and Paper Institute (local organizer)
RE-THINKING FOOD PACKAGING
Packaging protects the food throughout its life cycle, interacts with the consumer, and in addition to make our life more convenient, keeps the food safe, ensuring its quality, and optimal shelf life. Progress is urgently needed to improve food packaging sustainability and secure its circularity, while minimizing food waste.
A WHOLE SYSTEMS APPROACH
The conference will include research focused on sustainable food packaging solutions, under the CIRCUL-A-BILITY COST Action community (CA191249). As whole systems approach is needed, this conference will bring together scientists with different backgrounds to share research results, debate ideas and solutions and collaborate for a swift green transition to more sustainable packaging.
