It’s estimated that 50 million tons of food (more than one-third of the food produced annually in the U.S.) is disposed of before it can be consumed. This adds up to nearly $160 billion in lost value for retailers. While retailers indicate that implementing packaging enhancements that help extend shelf life is a top priority, few retailers are actually implementing such solutions.
