The Foodservice Packaging Institute launched its new educational video series this month with three entertaining videos explaining the benefits and usage of foodservice packaging.

“FPI wanted to create a fun and informative way to educate consumers on the benefits of cups, containers and other items used when they get their foods and beverages ‘to go’,” said Lynn Dyer, president of the Foodservice Packaging Institute. “We frequently field inquiries from the public and were inspired to ‘unpack’ foodservice packaging though an entertaining sequence of videos to address their most common questions.”

The first three videos released are:

Our Take on Take-out Packaging. A brief overview of the history of foodservice packaging, this video offers a glimpse into what products make up foodservice packaging and why they were initially developed over 100 years ago.

Tossing Your Take-out Packaging. Foodservice packaging should be disposed of properly and certainly not littered. This video addresses the different options, including recycling, composting, energy recovery and landfilling.

What’s Wrong with Reusables? This video looks at the single-use versus reusable foodservice items debate, with a focus on environmental and economic factors, convenience and health considerations.

Each segment is under three minutes and can be found on FPI’s YouTube channel. The association plans to add more videos in 2017.
