Opening Video: Endura Team

As much as 42% of the total 19 million tons of waste generated in Indonesia consists of food waste. This is due to a lack of good handling practices in the packaging and storage of post-harvest production. Packaging technologies that are not environmentally friendly and insufficient in preserving the decay process contribute to this issue. The Endura team addressed this problem during an Ideathon event and came up with an idea titled "Cellulose-based Foam Barrier Packaging System to Enhance Post-harvest Resilience of Fruits and Vegetables." This idea successfully earned the Endura team the third-place award in the Ideathon event.
