In this session, we’ll explore the role that packaging design plays in food waste. We’ll look at where food waste occurs in the supply chain, focusing on retail and consumer environments and reviewing the data for why food is thrown away by consumers. We will take a closer look at how packaging design can help prevent food waste, but also how many of today’s packaging choices and formats are causing additional food waste. ReFED will share their latest food waste data and analytics, offering insights into how packaging adjustments, such as active packaging, spoilage prevention, and design changes, are a key strategy for reducing food waste.

The Amazon rainforest is the tropical, broadleaf forest which covers most of the 7 million km2/2.7 million mi2 drainage basin of the Amazon River in South America. Of this the forest covers 5.5 million km2/2.1 million mi2,or 79% of the basin (roughly the size of the continental US!) It stretches through nine countries (60% in Brazil, 13% in Chile, 10% in Ecuador, and smaller amounts in other countries) and 3344 indigenous tribal areas. However, in recent decades the existence of the rainforest, despite all its environmental and cultural importance, has come increasingly under threat from deforestation driven mostly by agriculture, particularly cattle farming.
