Unwrapping Innovation: Tackling Food Waste With Sustainable Packaging

Every bite of wasted food represents an incredible squandering of resources – water, land, energy, labor, and capital. Shockingly, up to 10% of global food is discarded before it even reaches our plates. The food packaging industry holds the key to mitigating this issue and fortunately, there are companies with solutions. Introducing Freshr Technologies: Hailing from Nova Scotia, this groundbreaking company is not just addressing the problem; it’s transforming the game. Freshr’s proprietary coating slashes pre-consumer food waste by up to 20%, outperforming conventional packaging. In context, Freshr’s packaging could reduce the emission equivalent of driving over seven million miles by an average gasoline-powered passenger vehicle. Join us on December 14th to hear from Freshr Technologies Founder and CEO Mina Mekhail and Boundless Senior Research Analyst Jordan Farber. Learn how we can scientifically measure the impact of sustainable packaging and pave the way for a greener, more efficient food system.
