If your summer reading list is light on one of the biggest issues surrounding the food industry, Gabriela Steier and Adam Friedlander have you covered with their book “Food System Transparency: Law, Science and Policy of Food and Agriculture.”
The 224-page book lands June 10 in hardback, paperback and eBook formats, and takes a look at the transparency of the food system by bringing together a variety of voices in the food industry. Chapters written by the likes of Darin Detwiler, Paul De Filippi, Juanjuan Sun and more are broken into three sections that give readers a broad look at transparency, its impact on food safety and health and the global view.
GS: This is the beginning of the conversation. This is sort of the research that we bring to the table with our contributors — let's carry this forward. So, anybody who will pick this up hopefully will not shy away from discussing this book, from criticizing it, from ripping it apart, because the more people use it, the more friction we create, the more we can inspire, the more conversations we can start with this book, the better.

BUSKERUD, Norway — Global carton packaging supplier Elopak has announced the Pure-TwistFlip, which the company said offers up a new option for brands looking to meet the growing consumer demand for sustainable packaging, without compromising on convenience or product integrity.
“We are delighted to share the news that our tethered cap solution is now ready. Sustainability is a central driver of our innovation efforts at Elopak, in which we are continually seeking to raise the bar and improve on past performance,” said Elopak CMO Patrick Verhelst. “We have invested heavily in developing more environmentally friendly packaging solutions that meet the same high standards our customers are used to, and at the same time offer them a way to package their products in a manner that fits with a low carbon circular economy. By combining Elopak’s Pure-Pak carton with the Pure-TwistFlip cap, brands can now choose a package that both helps prevent marine littering and reduces the use of plastics.”
