The challenge

bob棋牌 Food loss and waste are growing sources of concern worldwide. Enough food is produced to feed the 8 billion of us on the planet, yet millions still go to bed hungry1. More than one-third?of all food is wasted2?– but recovering just half of it would be enough to feed the world.

Food production is an area that is important to drive sustainable change, and we believe we can help. Efficient production facilities, food processing technologies and packaging solutions can improve food supply chains and build resilience into food systems.

How we can contribute

Cutting food loss and waste can deliver multiple benefits. It is why it is one of our founding principles and where we believe?we have a significant role to play.

Processing technology to reduce loss & waste

For decades, our?aseptic processing and packaging solutions have made it possible to protect perishable foods, extending their shelf life and helping reduce food waste. Developments in new food processing technology are another area where we can increase efficiencies?to further prevent food loss and waste during production.

See our processing solutions?

Cutting-edge equipment and processes set the bar for keeping food from being spilt or spoilt during the production process, even at the early stages. Efficient processing equipment such as the Tetra Pak? VCC vertical blender is optimised to preserve particle size and shape during cottage cheese production. As more than 90% of particles are maintained within the accepted size range after blending, manufacturers can prevent product damage and leftover in the machines, which drastically reduces product loss, compared with conventional horizontal blenders.

Long shelf life, less food waste

Packages? designed to prolong food life help prevent it from perishing. Offering a variety of package sizes and closures means you can choose the right fit for your local consumers: so food can keep for longer without spoiling. For example, when one of our customers in Japan realised their older consumers were struggling to finish a litre-sized product, we were able to offer half-litre or 900 ml alternatives, thereby reducing consumer waste.

Turning by-products into food

We are working with partners to turn by-products from food production into added-value ingredients, reducing food waste and making the most of raw materials.

A collaboration with?EnginZyme?explores the use of technology that expands the applicability of enzymes eg converting large volumes of acid whey from fresh cheese into added-value ingredients such as fibre.

Acting for sustainability

Contributing to resilient food systems

In a collaborative effort to support the transformation of food systems, we are working across our value chain to increase access to safe food, reduce food loss and waste, and build sustainable food value chains.
