The Australian Institute of Packaging heads to this month’s FoodTech PackTech show, offering several initiatives to the packaging community, including a training course on The Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste; a showcase of 2018 Packaging Innovation & Design Award winners from Australia and New Zealand; and a two-hour seminar on Fighting Food Waste, Save Food Packaging and Sustainable Packaging Design with an extensive line-up of speakers.

The show runs from September 

The AIP has developed a new half-day training course on The Role of Packaging in Minimising Food Waste with all of industry invited to attend. Over one third of the food grown for human consumption is lost or wasted between farm and fork. In New Zealand, estimated at more than $2bn per year and in Australia estimated at $20bn per year, with half of this occurring in households.

AIP says we have many opportunities for greater efficiency with resources. This course will provide participants with an introduction to the seriousness of food waste in this country and globally and how we can all make a difference as team members of the product-packaging design process to this issue. It will cover packaging design criteria for Best-Practice Save Food Packaging Design developments that should be considered. With hands-on and practical case studies participants will learn how designing packaging to save food actually saves food.
