Simple food labelling to reduce food waste
In an interesting move towards reducing food waste, Unilever is using now the words 'often good after' along with 'best before' in certain product labels. Because many consumers don't understand the difference between 'best before' and 'use by' in food labelling, the company is using simple wording to help them avoid throwing away too much food by indicating it's still safe to eat after the expiry date.

Rice-based straws as a sustainable solution
Malaysian company RiceStraws offers an affordable alternative to plastic straws, 100% biodegradable, and of natural ingredients that are edible. Straws are made of rice as the main material, and tapioca as a coagulant. They don?t dissolve in drinks, but soften up after 2-3 hours in hot drinks and 4-10 hours in cold drinks. They are certified according to food industry standards HACCP and ISO 22000, and are also Halal-certified.

Lab-grown kangaroo meat as a "digital" approach to food.
This startup based in Western Sydney took four weeks of using in vitro cultivation of animal cells, instead of slaughtering, to create the first ever cell-cultured kangaroo meat grown from stem cells taken from a kangaroo. They take a small sample from the animal, isolate the correct cells, encourage them to grow and differentiate in exactly the same way they would naturally, and bring them together to create rich food products. The startup wants to turn exotic clean meat into routine but adventurous meals, and has just won a grant from the NSW Government to turn it into a Minimum Viable Product
