As a leader in the food packaging industry, Sealed Air recognizes its responsibility in influencing food waste reduction for the future of the planet. Food packaging helps protect the industry’s investment to grow, process, and transport food products from farm to fork. But, the commitment does not stop there. Not only should packaging protect the food it was designed to hold, it is possible for it to play a role in preserving the environment as well. “In meeting the challenges the world faces, there is no room for food waste. As a company, we are passionately focused on helping to create a world where people have better access to a safe, plentiful food supply and less food is wasted,” said Karl Deily, Sealed Air Food Care President.
Food waste is an enormous problem, one that impacts world hunger and the growing concern of climate change. It’s estimated that one out of every three calories that is produced for human consumption is wasted—enough to feed three billion people. Sealed Air is motivated to change this story. Its employees are resolute in combining knowledge, advances in technology, and innovation to reduce food waste. Reducing food waste means reducing climate change and improving food security. The opportunity is boundless.
