Positive feedback from local schools
Until the end of May MULTIVAC is showing at its headquarters in Wolfertschwenden the travelling exhibition about the international SAVE FOOD Initiative, which is based on the theme of worldwide food wastage. The exhibition has been received very positively up to now by the school children and students from the local educational establishments.
As examples, students from the Technical College of Commercial IT in Kempten visited the exhibition at MULTIVAC at the beginning of May; and school children from the primary school in Wolfertschwenden were guests of the packaging specialist from the Allgäu at the end of April: "The young people were particularly interested in the suggested solutions as to how the worldwide wastage of food can be countered today. Here we were able to build a bridge to our own range of products, since packaging technologies can also help local food producers in emerging and developing countries to preserve and transport their products and to be able to sell these to customers", reports Valeska Haux, Head of Marketing at MULTIVAC. The visits to the exhibition were also combined with a tour of the company.
The members of the Center for Food and Packaging Technology in Kempten were also able to view the exhibition as part of an organised event at MULTIVAC on 17. April 2012.
In existence for a year
MULTIVAC has supported the SAVE FOOD Initiative since its founding more than a year ago by the World Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Düsseldorf Trade Fair Organization. The Initiative blazes a trail against worldwide food wastage and brings together the commitment of different groups from business, politics and society. It reached a wider public for the first time during interpack 2011 in Düsseldorf: the SAVE FOOD convention took place there for two days in May 2011 and it was opened by Christian Traumann, CFO of MULTIVAC Sepp Haggenmüller GmbH & Co.KG, in his role as President of interpack. The SAVE FOOD Initiative gives information to companies and private individuals alike, as well as networking with key players and promoting concrete international projects with the assistance of industry.
