Aluminium take away containers
The consumption of takeaway food is increasing worldwide. Single-use containers used for takeaway food represent an important source of waste and environmental impacts due to their low recyclability. Consequently, it is essential to identify the best available alternatives and improvement opportunities to reduce the environmental impacts of takeaway containers. Aluminium packaging could be a solution to minimise food waste and help the environment. Why? First of all, this material is 100% recyclable. Secondly, aluminium foil acts as a total barrier to light and oxygen. In addition, there are many ways to increase shelf life through aluminium packaging: sometimes it’s by using sealable containers or smaller trays.
Aluminium trays and food waste
Aluminium take away trays could be a significant option to minimise food waste if you think that almost 1/3 of all the food the world produces never gets consumed for different reasons, as FAO affirms: foods that are close to the “best-before” date are often discarded by retailers and consumers; large quantities of wholesome edible food are often unused or left over and discarded from household kitchens and eating establishments
