    During the launch of the Australian Government National Food Waste Strategy in November by the Department of the Environment and Energy the Minister, Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, acknowledged the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) for the development of their innovative Save Food Packaging Design Award.

    The AIP was the first Institute in the world to develop the Save Food Packaging Award; which is now an international award category in the WorldStar Packaging Awards.

    The Australian Government has committed to developing a National Food Waste Strategy to halve Australia’s food waste by 2030 and developed three separate advisory working groups (Primary Production, Manufacturing & Distribution and Retail & Food Service) to engage with key stakeholders.

    The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) holds a position on the National Food Waste Manufacturing and Distribution Supply Chain Advisory Working Group and represents packaging designers and technologists who design the packaging within Australian companies.

    This recognition of the AIP’s role in Save Food Packaging by the Government is significant and the Institute will be working on a number of key initiatives for the industry in 2018 including training courses on Save Food Packaging and the 2018 Save Food Packaging Design Award; which is the exclusive entry point for the WorldStar Packaging Awards.
