The Goal is “Zero”— Mondelêz International, owner of pantry classics like Tang, Oreos, Ritz, Cadbury, Honey Maid, and more… has announced plans to make all of its packaging recyclable by 2025. Their first step towards “zero net waste” packaging will be to sustainably source all paper-based packaging, potentially reducing 65 million kg in packaging material. TEQUILA!— You love it. Or you know someone that does. And maybe you’ve noticed more and more tequila options of late. It’s because US demand for it is at an all-time high (and leads globally)—and it’s price reflects the demand. Tequila is made from agave grown in Mexico. It takes seven years for an agave plant to mature. Agave farmers making the seven-year bet are worried that the Tequila bubble is going to burst. Museum of Gross— The Disgusting Food Museum opens in Malmö, Sweden at the end of this month. The museum features 80 of the stinkiest, ugliest, and yuckiest foods the curation team could find from around the world. Think: Baby mouse wine, fruit bat soup, cheese with maggots (on purpose)… you get the idea. The museum stays open until the end of January 2019, so—book those tickets. Finally— It’s National Pasta Day. Buon appetito!
