Meeting Details :

Join this webcast to learn about primary and transport packaging solutions designed to mitigate food loss in third-world countries. The discussion will then expand to include food recovery strategies aimed at reducing hunger. In the second part of the webcast, you will gain an understanding of the challenges and advances in the developing and testing of extended-shelf life food products like military rations. Extending the shelf life of improved-quality foods reduces food waste. It also makes food and packaging manufacturing and supply chain practices more environmentally-friendly and sustainable and valorizes food waste.
