“Change and Challenge” Initiative

Change and Challenge is a UBE initiative led by committed individuals and organizations to project the benefits of flexible packaging along the entire food chain - from field to households. We are in active collaboration with NGOs, research institutions, environmental activists, major players, and brand owners across relevant industries. We aim to project the benefits of multilayer flexible packaging and the socio-economic, environmental, ethical, moral, and cost-saving benefits of reducing food waste/loss.
