How we do it

The UN’s second Sustainable Development Goal is Zero Hunger, with the goal to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

Our products and services play a key role in addressing one of the most pressing development challenges of our time – food security. By working closely with our partners along the value chain, we can help make safe, nutritious and flavoursome products accessible to more of the world’s rapidly growing population, including the millions who live 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 without the need for preservatives. 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.

Food safety

Consumers rightly expect food to be safe. For our customers, that means being in full control of production, from the sourcing of raw materials to the retailer’s shelf.

Food quality

Today’s consumer expects food to be consistent in taste, colour, texture and nutritional value. Our packages are designed to protect and preserve food - without the need for preservatives - to meet these expectations.

Food availability

We believe the most effective way to tackle the global food security and nutrition challenge is to build sustainable food value chains.
