MANILA, Philippines — Three out of the top five commitments made by business leaders in the food and beverage industry are focused on the reduction of plastic use and wastage, a recent research showed.

According to a survey conducted by Swedish multinational food packaging firm Tetra Pak, which covered 346 interviews across 19 markets last year, such results are in line with consumer sentiments observed in nearly 30 countries including the Philippines.

Results show that the top five commitments made by these companies are a reduction in dependency on plastic,  bringing down plastic packaging demand in food delivery, cutting food waste in plants, trimming plastic packaging waste in the value chain, and logistics improvement across the value chain.
