Sustainability, a key factor in the packaging of fruit and vegetable products

Fruit and vegetable products are characterised by their freshness, which is increasingly valued and demanded by consumers. The packaging system for fruit and vegetables has to preserve these characteristics, which, in many cases, might be more complex than it seems. Having sustainable packaging can be the key to achieving it. This has been one of the central issues of the sessions held at the Fruit Attraction LiveConnect, one of the largest Marketplaces and Professional Networks in the world, specialised in the fruit and vegetable sector.

Why recycling has been declared by BIR as the main solution for the management of plastic waste

It is estimated that, to date, approximately 9.2 billion tons of plastic have been produced worldwide, the equivalent of more than one ton per (living) person today. This figure would not be a problem if it weren’t for the fact that less than 10% of the total production of plastic is recycled. Moreover, approximately 30% is incinerated and the rest ends up being discarded

Multi-layer packaging guarantees better food safety

Packaging is an especially important step in the complete process to which food is exposed, from its processing or preservation to its supply or distribution chain. The main function of packaging is to contain and protect the products. This, in turn, has led to concerns about the environmental friendliness, biodegradability and sustainability of the packaging materials. And there have also been many developments focused on improving the performance of packaging systems.
