Getting Compostability Right

Article by Katherine Rich Chief Executive of the NZ Food & Grocery Council talks about the work the FGC is doing around packaging sustainability supported by Lyn Mayes

Katherine acknowledges the work of the FGC's Sustainability Committee which comprises representatives of member companies as well as Countdown and Foodstuffs North Island. It's a big agenda tackling plastics and paper/fibre use and recycling, metal collection and recycling; input into the establishment of a beverage container return scheme and compostability of packaging. 

The work of the Compostable Products sub committee is particularly interesting because its work that hasn't been investigated to the extent others have.
