This year, one of FHI’s main initiatives is to reduce food waste, therefore FHI is collaborating with the ALLAS project, a community-based initiative that promotes sustainability by collecting and cleaning food containers so they can be reused and not wasted.

During the exhibition, FHI provides reusable food containers that can significantly reduce the use of single-use plastics and other single-use materials.

This not only helps reduce waste but also supports the circular economy by extending the lifespan of materials.

This year FHI also collaborated with Alton Waste Management, a trusted waste processing service provider in Indonesia which focuses on cardboard waste distribution services with the motto “Go Green”.
