Free seminar on understanding sustainable packaging


Three leading sustainable packaging experts will discuss the latest trends and innovations in sustainable packaging at a free seminar on Wednesday, 12 October at Foodtech Packtech.

Organised by the Australian Institute of Packaging and held in Seminar Room 1 from 11.00 am–12.30 pm, James Romhany, National Sales Manager, Confoil, Anthony Peyton MAIP, Director, GreenChip and Dr Carol Lawrence PhD FAIP, Director, 3SustainAbility and UPM Raflatac will open up to an interactive question and answer session following their presentations:

  • James Romhany will discuss consumer sentiment towards plastic and foam and how some companies are moving to pulp board trays as a sustainable alternative. These innovative paper products are compostable and can be recycled, touching on sustainable forestry as a raw material resource alternative to resins.
  • Anthony Peyton will look at how sustainable product and packaging design is now a fundamental business requirement being driven by consumer pressures, voluntary business commitments and global initiatives.
  • Dr Carol Lawrence will cover the environmental implications of film and paper labels and save food waste initiatives. Food labelling is the most diverse of all label end-uses, providing eye-catching branding while displaying critical consumer information — and the selection of the right label is key to the fine balance in ensuring the package can be disposed of responsibly at the end of life.

Held at ASB Showgrounds in Epsom, Auckland, from 11–13 October, Foodtech Packtech is a must-attend event. Why not partner your visit with this free seminar and make the most of your time?
