Global food security - United Nations asks for increased packaging innovation

APPG for the Packaging Manufacturing Industry Secretariat | The Packaging Debate

1 min read

On April 21, the United Nations projected that because of Covid-19, the number of people facing severe food insecurity worldwide could double to 265 million.

In its communique the organisation noted that "It is essential that we increase the resilience of our food systems. Strengthening the management of markets to prevent supply-chain disruptions will help ensure that these systems function smoothly during the crisis. Activities related to production, storage, distribution, processing, packaging, retailing, and marketing of food must not cease."

Needless to say, the UK’s APPG supports this message and pledges to do all that it can in the service of helping strengthen our food security. 

The full United Nations communication is here.
