The use of nanotechnology in packaging can help the UK reduce the huge amount of food it wastes, a seminar in London was told on Tuesday.
The Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum's event on food and packaging waste brought together stakeholders from government departments, business, universities and NGOs to discuss what to do about the 8.3 million tonnes of food thrown away by consumers every year.
Dr Kathy Groves of Leatherhead Food Research said use of nanotechnology, such as nanoclays, "can make a big difference" by making packaging lighter, stronger and better at preserving food for longer.
