Trivium releases paper on packaging for food
Trivium Packaging has published a new white paper discussing the benefits of metal packaging when it comes to food.
Metal has the power to Protect (safeguard contents from external elements and shocks), Promote (serve as platform for brand differentiation and consumer messaging), and Preserve (retain natural resources in closed loops/systems).
This is important as it addresses the problem of food waste. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, around one-third of global food production — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — is lost or goes to waste each year. Within the European Union, around 88 million tonnes of food waste — the equivalent of 20% of total food production — are generated annually.
In the United States, food waste is estimated at between 30–40% of the overall food supply. Many have turned to metal cans as allies in their fight against food waste.
