Abstract/Summary CHEP is a leading provider of pallet and container pooling services for the Aerospace, Automotive, Chemical, Consumer Goods, Fresh Food and Manufacturing industries. Centre for Design worked with CHEP to conduct one of the eighteen research projects identified in the AFGC White Paper on the Future of Packaging [12], which was centred on the role of packaging in minimising food waste in the supply chain (Project 4.1). The research was completed in two parts, the aims of each were to; 1. Examine industry, resource and lifestyle trends most likely to impact food waste in urban and regional Australia to 2030. 2. Identify packaging solutions to help minimise food waste across the Australian supply chain. This research was conducted through literature reviews and expert industry interviews and case studies. The insights will contribute to the framing of food and waste policy into then future
