Mondi partners with United Nations World Food Programme to address food waste

Mondi Group recently announced a three year strategic partnership to support the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP’s) efforts to save lives, change lives around the globe.

As part of the partnership, Mondi will make a $1m in-kind and financial contribution to help WFP improve how it delivers nutritious food over a complex humanitarian supply chain, with an aim to reduce food waste and mitigate the impact of packaging on the environment. The partnership will draw on the infrastructure, knowledge and expertise from Mondi’s corrugated solutions, paper bags and consumer flexible packaging businesses.

Over the next three years, the goal is to develop robust and effective guidance for WFP’s global network of food manufacturers and local suppliers, as well as for the wider humanitarian community. Ultimately, the partnership aims to design and develop more sustainable packaging to better protect food and maintain its quality as it is subject to a wide variety of storage, transport and handling challenges in different climates.
