The Fight Against Food Waste

According to the Rainforest Alliance, 17% of global food production is wasted annually, with 40% of that number represented by the United States. As food waste decomposes in landfills, it produces methane, a greenhouse gas that’s 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide. That means our collective food waste generates about 10% of all global emissions, and packaging plays a vital role in reducing food waste.

At Sealed Air, we create food packaging solutions that are engineered to protect food, prevent food waste, and reduce environmental impacts.
