More Nutritious and Safe Food With Packaging Innovations
In a world of such technological wonder, no child should go hungry. Our planet supports 7 billion inhabitants—soon to be 9 billion. Every one of them needs safe, healthy, and nutritious food. To achieve that, we will need a 70 percent increase in global food production over the next three decades. DuPont is working with our customers and partners to solve this urgent global challenge. For the “N” of our A to Z series of articles, we’re focusing on an innovation that helps provide nutritious, safe food.
Packaging can help ensure nutritious food reaches remote areas of the world where access to clean water, food and electricity is limited. In this case, DuPont Packaging collaborated with FUTURELIFE® and others who create a dual compartment pouch, made with DuPont™ Surlyn® sealant resin. This innovative use of packaging technology ensures clean water and nutritious food are not mixed until the frangible seal that separates the two is broken. Food stays safe and fresh without refrigeration and can withstand the rigors of transport.
