The food services sector plays a vital role in the Australian economy, however it is also one of the highest consumers of problematic and unnecessary packaging, including single-use plastic. To assist the food services sector in addressing challenges and opportunities, APCO in collaboration with the food services sector, have brought together industry, government, and community stakeholders to develop a coordinated, evidenced based approach to reducing the impact of food service packaging throughout the supply chain. The result of this collaboration has seen the development of sector-specific Food Services Packaging Guidelines, case studies and collaborative initiatives.
