Genpak Flexible is now a member of the National Zero Waste Council

Genpak Flexible is a council member on the national movement towards zero waste for future generations. The National Zero Waste Council is a leadership initiative of Metro Vancouver, bringing together organizations to advance waste prevention in Canada and the transition to a circular economy. 

The National Zero Waste Council has engaged Value Chain Management International (VCMI) to undertake new research exploring how food packaging affects the amount of food wasted along the supply chain in Canada.

This national research project seeks to understand the pros and cons of various types of packaging materials and techniques on aspects like freshness, safety, identification, storage and shelf-life. This project, a recommended action in the National Zero Waste Council’s A Food Loss and Waste Strategy for Canada ,released in 2018, is supported by VanCity, RECYC-QUÉBEC and Éco Entreprises Québec. “The findings of this research will form the basis of policy recommendations for governments and best practices for businesses in the agriculture, food processing and retail sectors to prevent food loss and waste,” said Malcolm Brodie, Chair of the National Zero Waste Council. “As we work to tackle food waste on a national scale, considering how packaging is applied along the entire supply chain will be an important part of the solution.”
