Food South Australia, the Australian Institute of Packaging, the Fight Food Waste Centre for Cooperative Research and Food Innovation Australia Ltd (FIAL) are partnering to present a two part program designed to help you understand what you need to do to reduce your food and packaging waste and get your business ready to meet the National Packaging Targets set to be introduced in 2025.

 

The Sustainable Packaging to Reduce Food Waste Program includes:

 

Listen and Learn - Workshop and Tour
