“Partners sought to develop food packaging that can be digested by animals” is an October 4, 2019 story published by IEG Policy, a unit of Informa PLC. This story reports on the goal of the Animal Digestible Food Packaging Initiative (ADFPI), which is to seek the establishment of a “public-private partnership to develop food packaging that farm animals and fish can eat to tackle both food waste and litter … the ADFP Initiative believes food waste accompanied by the packaging could be diverted from landfill sites and become a resource by being manufactured into animal feed … Once the partnership is established, the next step would be for participants to seek funding … The partnership would aim to research new food packaging materials that are digestible by animals and, once such materials are developed, promote their widespread adoption throughout the food industry …”
