We associate them with health, fellowship, and enjoyment: Food and drink are more closely and more deeply connected to human life than any other industry. Billions of food and beverage products are consumed every day – and demand will continue to rise. The world’s growing population will always need safe, affordable food and drink. What is more: They will need products that align with a climate- and environment-friendly lifestyle.
For the future of our industry, that means that we can base our commercial success entirely on sustainability. This is an incredible opportunity that we at Krones intend to seize. Because we firmly believe that, as a turnkey supplier with customers in every corner of the world, we have the expertise, the technologies, and the reach to contribute substantially to solving three of humankind’s great challenges: slowing climate change, feeding the world’s population, and using packaging responsibly.
How do we intend to accomplish that? The answer will have to be as multi-faceted and multi-layered as the issues themselves – anything else would ignore the complexity and importance of these challenges.
