Packaging for Sustainability: Editorial
Although nature has equipped bananas with the ideal packaging for their long journey from the country of origin to the consumer, there is still a need for additional protective containers and ingenious logistics to keep transport losses as low as possible. And this holds all the more true of products that come without their own naturally-grown individual packaging. After all, roughly half of all the food produced worldwide ends up being thrown away. One of the key measures that can be taken to reduce this waste is the consistent use of high-grade, product-specific packaging. Intelligently coordinated with the product, packaging of this type can considerably enhance the keeping quality and storability of products as well as ensuring safe transport, with no exposure to risks. Emerging nations and developing countries, in particular, are still making far too little use of this service offering.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
