Responding to the Government’s new packaging strategy, ‘Making the Most of Packaging’, Julian Hunt, the Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF) Director of Communications, said:
“We agree that it’s important for the Government’s packaging strategy to focus on waste prevention. That’s why members of the Food and Drink Federation have a bold ambition to send zero food and packaging waste from factories to landfill by 2015 and are working closely with WRAP and others to reduce the amount of packaging reaching households.
“Recovery and recycling are also important elements of any strategy and we look forward to working with Government to improve the country’s recycling infrastructure and to increase capacity in new technologies such as anaerobic digestion.”
