WPO World Star “Packaging that Saves Food” Special Award In cooperation with Save Food Initiativeand Interpack, WPO organizes a WorldStar “Packag-ing that Saves Food” Special Award to highlight the role of packaging in preventing food losses and food waste. We call for smart and sustainable packaging concepts to im-prove the supply of food to a growing global population.
SAVE FOOD is a joint initiative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Messe Düsseldorf, and interpack, the leading global trade fair for packaging and processes. Our goal is to fight global food waste and loss. Through a global alliance of all stakeholders. One third of all food is either wasted or lost – an amount that would be enough to meet global food needs. Together with our members from industry, politics and civil society, SAVE FOOD aims to drive innovations, promote interdisciplinary dialogue and spark off debates in order to generate solutions, across the entire value chain “from field to fork”. By involving all actors. And on a broad front.
