How we do it

In a world where food security is one of the most pressing development challenges, finding immediate ways to address the needs of a growing and rapidly urbanising population, while limiting food losses and waste, is becoming a key priority for our sector. Our products and services can play a key role in achieving that ambition. By working closely with our partners across the value chain, we can help make safe, nutritious and flavoursome products accessible to people across the globe, including those living in remote locations without access to refrigeration.

Reducing food loss and waste is one of the founding principles of our business. Our leading processing and packaging equipment keeps food from being spilled or spoilt in the early stages of production, while our packaging solutions prolong the life of food and help prevent it perishing – this is where we believe our greatest impacts are in reducing food losses. We also work with our customers to help educate consumers on how to avoid waste and prevent food from spoiling. Our work under this pillar contributes to tackling the global challenge of food security by helping to build sustainable food value chains.
