Packaging protects food, because the most damaging thing for the climate would be not to protect the products sufficiently and to let them spoil. Worldwide, more food is produced than used and consumed. Packaging can do nothing to prevent waste, but it can prevent spoilage. This is why highly functional film packaging protects its contents from mechanical damage, dirt, light and inappropriate oxygen supply. This extends the shelf life of the product and ensures its quality.
263 million tons loss of meat per year. That`s comparable to 75 million bovine animals.*
Unpacked meat has a shelf life of about 4 day. Vacuum packed meat has a shelf life of about 30 days**
