Sobeys throws down the gauntlet on plastic waste in food packaging

sobeys-4382658

Sobeys has announced its Plastic Waste Challenge, in partnership with IGNITE Atlantic, Divert NS and Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). In search of a sustainable packaging alternative for meat and seafood, the nationwide challenge will invite businesses, post-secondary institutions, not-for-profits, and more, to compete to bring a commercially viable product to market.

The Challenge: Find an alternative for the fish, meat and produce packaging for use in Sobeys’ stores, starting with a pilot in Atlantic Canada. The main objective is to find a commercially viable packaging alternative solution for in-store wrapped seafood, meat, and in some cases, produce, that will be an alternative to the current packaging, which includes a Styrofoam tray, a moisture pad, and a plastic wrap.
