Sustainability is on everybody’s lips and single use plastics does not have a good reputation. When the public perception is that plastic is all bad, it is hard to remind people what good plastic has done for the food industry. Plastic has enabled our entire grocery store system to keep products on the shelf for a long time, which reduces costs and enables the export of produce to faraway places. Whilst plastic can deform itself to protect all kinds of products from chicken wings to tomatoes, 70% of it still ends up in landfill. It is a big task technically, logistically, politically, and economically to create food storage, delivery, and transport systems, which can please everybody from the Greenpeace activist to the corporate CEO.

Follow our video series in collaboration with 3dprint.com in order to understand what part 3D printing plays in the creation of new value network driven concepts and companies in the food industry. Tune in to hear from Gary Robinson from Synaptic Packaging how to tackle sustainability challenges in food packaging.
