Or is it the best way to maintain hygiene and prevent excessive food waste? Which interests does packaging serve today? Michael reflects on interviews he’s had with industry experts and technological innovators to contemplate whether that which we think of as packaging today is a necessary component of modern commerce or just well-designed waste.
