Use only as much packaging as it is necessary.

Rrduce the total costs, material usage, improve the shelf life, protection of the product, appearance and appeal of the product and so on....

In simple ways, telling your team to use minimal resources to achieve maximum benefits.... :)

Food packaging optimization is about reducing unnecessary food packaging (e.g. four apples wrapped together) without compromising food safety and without increasing food waste. It is also about finding a balance between adapting food packaging to changing lifestyles (smaller portion sizes for smaller households to reduce food waste) and preventing the additional packaging waste this might create.

Below mindset can definitely help in terms of improving the food packaging bottom line and can help us get better benefits and more value out of the money spent and reduce the green house impact...

Minimisation:
Significant savings can be realised from very small changes in packaging, as these changes multiply across each production output/unit over the year. Such reductions are good for businesses (they reduce input costs) and the environment.

Reuse:
Having Returnable Packaging Systems in your product mix.
Reuse of Incoming Supplier Packaging & possible return / recycling of packaging to supplier which you can't use.

Recyclable/ Compostable Materials:
Use of Recycled Cardboard and Paper.
Use of Recycled Plastics.
Use of Recycled Glass.
Using compostable packaging reduces your reliance on fossil fuel based packaging, and the customer can compost the packaging rather than disposing of it in landfill. Compostable packaging materials are attractive to the food and drink sector and its stakeholders because businesses can avoid the
somewhat resource intensive process of separating the packaging from out-of-date or wasted / reject foodstuff.
