Highly Fluorinated Chemicals in Food Packaging Symposium

This daylong, by-invitation-only workshop brought together diverse stakeholders to develop strategies to move towards healthier food-service packaging with the reduced use of highly fluorinated chemicals.

Workshop topics included:

  • health and environmental impacts of the chemicals
  • safer alternatives
  • obstacles to change and how to overcome them
  • composting and/or recycling of these materials
