Working with you, we are developing sustainable packaging that keeps food fresh longer and reduces waste.
Let’s keep exploring the possibilities of materials for innovative, sustainable solutions.
Reducing food waste:
a sustainability challenge for modern society.
“Food waste” is the result of overproduction, extended supply chain and distribution timelines, ending in unsold or unused food, and spoilage. Food waste is responsible for a variety of issues, such as environmental impact due to disposal and economic loss due to wasteful production. Addressing the need for improvements in production, processing, distribution, and consumption, Kuraray is developing technologies and materials that will help reduce food waste. Working closely with supply chains, we are committed to solving the food waste problem.
How Kuraray and its partners keep food fresh longer.
As an approach to reducing food loss, Kuraray has developed a range of barrier packaging films and coatings. These innovative materials make it possible to protect freshness during transport, on the store shelf, and at home, significantly reducing damage, spoilage, and waste without sacrificing taste, aroma, or nutritional content.
Let's explore more possibilities in sustainability together.
While it’s important to enhance food preservation, it is essential to consider environmental impact. The film material developed by Kuraray can be made thinner while maintaining its high barrier (oxygen-blocking) properties. Further, it can be recycled, thus reducing environmental impact. Kuraray will continue to deliver optimal solutions by leveraging its technological capabilities and expertise to create innovative, groundbreaking products, diverse product lines and networks to meet a wide range of needs.
