Elif helps fight against loss of food with United Nations SAVE FOOD Initiative

Elif is proud to be a participant of the SAVE FOOD initiative that aims to help prevent food waste and the loss of valuable resources at Interpack 2014.

Elif has a pioneering role in the flexible packaging industry in terms of investing in innovative and responsible production solutions that reduce natural resource usage and waste throughout the supply chain. Underpinning its approach of sustainable development, Elif focuses on Corporate Social Responsibility projects that will upgrade the quality of living of the societies it touches. As a global supplier of flexible packaging solutions, Elif is deeply committed to food packaging safety and raising public awareness of the issue as an important social responsibility project.

The SAVE FOOD initiative -campaign against global food loss-  was initiated at the beginning of 2010 by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. The aim of the Save Food congress is to develop new concepts, which will contribute to the more efficient use of food resources amongst industry experts, researchers, politicians and consumers.

Elif is aware that while packaging materials serve to inform about and perform for functional purposes, the main role of the packaging is about protecting the product, and therefore, sustainability of packaging is dependent on these three functions.

Elif’s most important leverage for the global society is the quality of packaging materials that helps societies access better quality products. Elif’s know-how can considerably contribute towards providing confidence and peace of mind in the eyes of the food industry and consumers alike.

As part of the “Save Food Initiative”, Elif is particularly keen to promote information interchange and cooperation between all parties and partners involved in the value chain. Elif will continue to contribute towards ensuring extended shelf life as well as reduced waste and deliver the ultimate product and brand protection.
