As a leader in the food packaging industry, we recognize our responsibility in influencing food waste reduction for the future of our planet. It’s estimated that one out of every three calories that is produced for human consumption is wasted—enough to feed three billion people. Meanwhile, the average family spends $2,500 each year on food that is wasted. At Sealed Air, we’re motivated to change this story.
This month, I had the opportunity to talk with Jeff Gardner, president of North America Food Care, about some of these issues. This podcast is the first of many that we’re calling Food Care Conversations where we will discuss important topics, trends and innovations in the food packaging industry.
In this first podcast episode, you can hear more about why reducing food waste is important to our business and what we’re doing to conserve valuable resources for our customers, for our operations and for the communities in which we operate.
At the end of the day, we believe that a sustainable enterprise is one that succeeds economically, protects the environment and benefits society.
I invite you connect with me on Twitter and LinkedIn and to share this conversation with others who may like to know more about Sealed Air’s sustainability efforts and sustainable solutions. You can also follow @SealedAirFood on Twitter, and “like” our Sealed Air Food Care Facebook page.
