PACKAGING REINWASTE BEST PRACTICES SHARED

Packaging of today and tomorrow: sustainability, innovation and safety of products. FEDSERV shares REINWASTE best practices.

Last February 12th, FEDSERV had the chance of presenting REINWASTE project during an interesting workshop organised by Confindustria Firenze (Florence - Tuscany) about packaging. Mr. Maurizio Notarfonso – from FEDSERV – highlighted the objectives of the project and in-progress activities of pilot actions, insisting on the relevance and importance of the topic, which concerns the whole supply chain. While the General Director of FEDSERV, Mr. Nicola Calzolaro, made a focus on the food sector, with a particular attention to packaging eco-design and food safety.

About 70 people attended the meeting: the aim was giving an insight on a topic which has turned into a very sensitive issue in day-to-day debates. It concerns a proper use of plastic containers for food use and of products at risk of degradation. It was a great occasion to share points of view on how to balance environmental protection while boosting technical innovation; how to reduce the abuse and mismanagement of plastic packaging without penalising it.
