Packaging food sector

The food sector is a purchasing area that involves significant streams of plastic, approximately 30 percent of which consists of packaging and wrapping. By optimising the use of plastic, steering purchases towards sustainable choices and setting sustainability requirements in public procurement, we can reduce the environmental impact of plastics and head towards circular solutions
