The National Restaurant Association (NRA) and the Foodservice Packaging Institute (FPI) have partnered to help raise awareness of foodservice packaging recovery among restaurant operators and consumers.

As part of this new effort, the groups are hosting the inaugural Foodservice Packaging Recovery Summit Nov. 7-8 in Austin, Texas, that will bring stakeholders together to collaborate on industry-driven solutions to increase the recovery of valuable resources and landfill diversion.

At the summit, NRA and FPI members and invited guests will share expertise to gain a better understanding of how the industry is working to increase recovery of foodservice packaging; learn how packaging recovery fits into broader sustainability initiatives in the foodservice industry; and provide input on the work NRA and FPI are undertaking and help shape future activities.

"This inaugural event is aimed at coming up with pragmatic solutions to complex challenges," said Scott DeFife, executive vice president of Policy and Government Affairs for the NRA. "We will address a range of topics, from limited infrastructure for collecting waste to unrealized end-use markets, and we need the perspectives of restaurant and supplier leaders to help move us forward."

The FPI partnership will help support the NRA's Conserve Sustainability Education Program, an online resource designed to initiate and inspire environmentally friendly actions that also improve a company's bottom line. Registration for the summit can be done online at Restaurant.org/events/fpi.
