RPC Group has launched The Fresher for Longer initiative to alert secondary school students to the problems of food waste and understand how packaging protects food.

Students will be encouraged to create their own behaviour change campaigns to get their community sourcing, storing and cooking food in a more environmentally-responsible way.

Packaging has an essential role to play in protecting and preserving products and it is vital we promote this important message​,” said Katherine Fleet, sustainability manager, RPC Group.

RPC is teaming up with Kettering Buccleuch Academy to sponsor the school’s involvement in the project and provide advice with workshops and interactive learning activities.

The Fresher for Longer partnership was set up by the Packaging Federation, the Industry Council for research on Packaging and the Environment (INCPEN), the Waste-Resources Action Programme (WRAP), Kent Resource Partnership and the Food and Drink Federation.
