For every sustainable packaging challenge faced by the organic food industry, there are, thankfully, just as many encouraging new packaging designs that are being developed or fine-tuned for industry use. SFTA’s Sustainable Packaging Innovations webinar explores the technology developed to overcome sustainability challenges on three innovative packaging designs. These include a packaging made with fibers from agricultural byproducts, a flexible plastic pouch that is 100% biodegradable, and edible six-pack rings made of the spent grain from the beer brewing process! These designs each represent a unique property that makes it stand out. Join us in this webinar to learn about these new innovations, applications, and availability. We look forward to seeing you there!
