10 worst 'culprits': Unpackit Packaging Awards
Having looked at the entries, as voted for by members of the public, Foodproductiondaily.com has put together our top 10 of worst food packaging for our readers to see.
Among the ‘culprits’ include Anchor, for its triple layer plastic milk bottles, vegetables and fruit on meat trays, sushi boxes and Cadbury’s.
The awards were set up in 2000 to raise awareness of packaging waste in New Zealand and to promote recycling, reuse and education on sustainability.
Nominations have now closed and 16 finalists will be announced in a few weeks when voting will begin to determine the winners of the 2013 Best and Worst packaging Awards, which closes at midnight on November 8, 2013.
