COVID-19 and the Food Safety– Environment Dilemma


January, 2021

Tetra Pak research study reveals food safety-environment dilemma fostered by COVID-19 pandemic 

Tetra Pak is sharing findings from its global research study, in partnership with Ipsos, giving insight into the food safety-environment dilemma brought forth by COVID-19. 

The research found that food safety is a major issue for society. The same number of participants who are concerned about food safety also recognize that COVID-19 is a real threat. Concern for the environment remains strikingly powerful as well. 

This points towards a dilemma in the consumers’ minds as they try to balance the critical priorities of human existence through safe food with     sustainability of the planet we live on.  The Tetra Pak Index 2020 also explores how the dilemma between food safety and environment is driving food waste up the agenda. 

There has never been a better time to start a wider discussion about sustainability and the role of food and beverage packaging, as companies like Tetra Pak strive to provide safe access to food for the world’s growing population while protecting the planet itself.
