Our goals coincide with the goals of The Save Food Initiative. The problems of waste, including food, have long been one of the global challenges of humanity. This relates to environmental, economic, social, and a number of other key aspects of human activity. And, of course, with such tremendous challenges ahead, the only way to overcome them is for humanity to work together and combine our efforts.
UKRPLASTIC is a Ukrainian company that has been engaged in the production of packaging and packaging materials for 88 years. 20 years ago, we chose a model of an innovative, environmentally friendly and socially responsible business. During this time the company has done a lot for the environmental, industrial, and technological fields. However, there is still a lot work to be done. Ukraine is facing acute problems that other European countries have faced such as an increase in food waste with certain categories of the population starving, as well as environmental and food safety problems. We want to change the situation and are ready to take an active part in promoting the ideas of The Save Food Initiative in our country.
We see that our goals coincide with the goals set by the UN program, so we have decided to join this social initiative. We have already attracted a number of Ukrainian and international manufacturers, professional associations, and created a public organization, which will work to change the mentality of Ukrainians in the field of waste management. Through awareness campaigns, we intend to spread the importance of careful attention to food resources, actively promote an “ecological” style of thinking in society, and promote the widespread use of modern scientific developments and technologies that can significantly reduce food waste. We are willing to join hands and work together with The Save Food Initiative.
