The World Packaging Organisation is excited to be a partner in the SAFE FOOD initiative. According to the United Nations, the world’s population will increase by more than 50% by 2050. Each of those 9 billion people will depend upon safe and nutritious food that is affordable and readily available, every day. The role that packaging plays in ensuring that these goals are met is indispensable.
WPO’s goal is to educate people, through our membership, about the important and invaluable aspects of packaging. We are advocates for packaging: good packaging, cost-effective packaging, packaging that contributes to creating a more sustainable society. “The world cannot do without packaging, so we must educate people everywhere to respect the purpose of packaging and teach them how to incorporate this tool into the process of building an ever more sustainable society.”
WPO, and its members from 50 countries, are committed to “Better Quality of Life Through Better Packaging For More people,” and we look forward to working with other stakeholders as we come together to SAVE FOOD.
