Finland: Valio and Stora Enso encourage consumers to reduce food waste

In Finland the biggest dairy cooperative Valio and Stora Enso, which is a provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper globally, distribute 10000 durable wood-fiber-based biocomposite lids to encourage consumers to reduce food waste. The reusable lids are used to test wood-based biocomposite in food packaging. The lids will be distributed at Valio’s sales demonstrations. Each year, about one third of the world’s food is wasted or thrown away (Source: FAO). This means waste of resources and unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions. The packaging – and its lid – play an important role in reducing food loss. The lid helps to cover any leftover in the cups and in this way to prevent food waste.
