Around the world, urbanisation is accelerating, with ever greater number of inhabitants flocking to cities consequent of a confluence of factors including climate change, geopolitical forces, and poverty. This is further exacerbated by the rapidly growing population that is estimated to reach 9 billion in 2050.

Hosted by our expert Trevor Robinson, this OQ webinar zoomed in on the strong pivot of food waste. With a fast-growing population, the demand for food will be doubled by 2050.

The session demonstrated how polymer packaging applications can increase and drive efficiencies throughout the entire food value chain and how materials can be reused and circulated, to support an important role in the sustainability and food waste worldwide.
