How can F&B companies resolve the challenge of waste management through reusable alternatives and innovative solutions that are cost effective?
There has been a higher demand in takeaway and delivery, and bento boxes for food catering, especially amidst new norms brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. An example of the new norm includes customers expecting their food to be packed separately to avoid direct contact. The new operating conditions have led to an exponential increase in the amount of packaging and food waste generated.
How can we design a cost-effective range of packaging which uses environmentally sustainable materials and reduces the amount of packaging materials used, while being able to separate food and retain food temperatures?
Novel packaging solutions and innovative processes which includes designs and concepts for but not limiting to:
Smart designs for packaging that allows for multiple functions
Cost-effective and innovative packaging materials and solutions (e.g. Packaging that effectively separates hot and cold food/drinks)
Optimised workflows so that it is easy to assemble the packaging (e.g. no folding required, stackable), sort and pack the food, and deliver the items.
Innovative solutions to minimise food waste (e.g. food composting)
