To package or not to package?
Waste is a major leak of energy in many agricultural systems, both on and off the farm. By packaging some products responsibly and appropriately we help to ensure quality is preserved and reduce waste. Uneaten or unsold food is unsustainable inefficiency and should be avoided, but not by using fossil fuel produced containers that will pollute landfills or oceans. Some of our packaging is biodegradable, others reusable; we are always striving for a better balance.
