Good Start Packaging, a leading supplier of compostable food and beverage packaging, has announced a new partnership with Rethink Food, a US-based non-profit organisation.

This collaboration aims to tackle two crucial issues: hunger and food waste.

Good Start Packaging will be the official compostable packaging supplier for Rethink Food in 2024.

The partnership goes beyond just providing products.

Good Start Packaging has also donated $115,000 to support Rethink Food’s mission and provided compostable packaging for the grand opening of the non-profit’s new Community Kitchen in Greenwich Village, New York City, on 27 March this year.

Founded in 2017, Rethink Food tackles food insecurity by rescuing perfectly edible surplus food from restaurants, grocers, and other food establishments in the city.

This food is then transformed into nutritious and culturally relevant meals for communities struggling with hunger.

To date, Rethink Food says it has diverted more than 2.3 million pounds of food waste from landfills.

Meanwhile, Good Start Packaging is a certified B Corporation, a designation signifying its commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

The company donates at least 20% of its profits to charitable organisations focused on food security, human rights, and environmental protection.

Its goal is to empower foodservice businesses to operate sustainably and create a positive impact on the world.

“We’re incredibly proud to partner with Good Start Packaging to further our mission of creating a more sustainable and equitable food system,” said Matt Jozwiak, Rethink Food’s founder and CEO.

“Their donation of compostable packaging allows us to operate more sustainably and redefine how we can impact the lives of the community we serve and the environment around us.”

The partnership between Good Start Packaging and Rethink Food presents a powerful example of how businesses and nonprofits can collaborate to address critical social and environmental issues.

By tackling food insecurity and food waste simultaneously, they are working to create a more sustainable and just food system for all.
