Rabobank: Packaging innovation can turn around food waste

30 March 2015

The European Food & Agribusiness (F&A) industry is currently losing EUR 60 billion of value each year through food that is wasted in the supply chain and never reaches the consumer. According to Rabobank’s latest report, it is vital that the industry looks to address the issue.
According to the report, the potential value of innovation in the F&A industry is significant. There are three main areas where innovation can tangibly help: harvesting and handling crops, packaging food and monitoring fresh produce. Through these, companies can realise up to EUR 10 billion of savings by using new approaches to reducing food waste (Press Release Rabobank, 16 March 2015).
