PACKAGING AND FOOD WASTE
Alongside our extensive packaging expertise, Colpac offers a range of machinery options to enhance the shelf life of packaging contents. Food waste is a huge issue with over 10 million tonnes of food wasted annually in the UK alone. Packaging is indispensable for the food industry. The key role for any packaging solution is to protect and preserve the product as well as sell it. Packaging can extend the freshness for days (depending on contents). This extension of shelf life works through reducing the contents exposure to oxygen thus preserving the product. WRAP research has shown that extending product life by just one day could save 250,000 tonnes of food waste in the UK annually.
