Food waste can be greatly reduced with adequate packaging that extends product shelf life. Food waste from meat, seafood, and cheese represents the highest dollar amount lost from all food waste. This is due to the resource intense nature of growing, producing, processing, and packaging meat, seafood and cheese products. Between 15-30% of meat, seafood, and cheese based products is lost after consumer purchase. Reducing this amount aligns with corporate and sustainability goals as well as the need for cost reductions in the value chain. Packaging solutions can reduce food waste by extending the shelf life.
