WPO Confirms Participation
in UN’s Save Food
WPO (World Packaging Organization) has confirmed its participation in Save Food, a project initiated in 2010 by the Food and
Agriculture Organization (FAO), a branch of the United Nations
aims to fight
world hunger through
of the initiative is
from business, politics, research, and not-for-profit organizations, thus encouraging
constructive dialogue in the search for solutions to curb food
loss along the food chain. In practical terms, the central idea
of the project is to mobilize stakeholders to help reduce food
loss and waste worldwide, through partnerships. As part of
this process, packaging is fundamental to keep and guarantee
the product quality throughout the supply chain until it reaches
populations that suffer with hunger.
According to the United Nations, the world’s population will
increase by more than 50 percent by 2050. Each of those 9 billion people will depend upon safe and nutritious food that is
affordable and readily available, every day. “The role that packaging plays in ensuring that these goals are met is indispensable”, says Thomas Schneider, President of WPO.
