AIP packaging conference program now available

With 60 speakers from nine countries, the 2020 AIP Australasian Packaging Conference is designed to deliver a two-day educational program that will cover a broad range of topics relating to the theme: 'Packaging: fit for the future'. The provisional program has now been released by the AIP for the biennial event, which will be held from 1–2 April at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne.

The packaging industry is facing many challenges at the moment with global plastic pollution and recycling issues and transformational changes to value and supply chain models, resulting in negative government and consumer perceptions. These challenges are requiring packaging companies, manufacturers and retailers to rethink their approaches and undertake strategic changes to address the challenges of meeting global and domestic sustainable packaging, 2025 National Packaging Targets, transform supply chains; all the while having clear parameters for driving the 4Rs.

Now more than ever is the time to collaborate, share ideas and success stories, and discuss the challenges and journeys the industry is facing openly and what we can do collectively to work towards the same targets.

Keynote speakers will include Pete Ceglinski, CEO & Co-Founder, Seabin Project; Martin Orzinski, Director Operations, Coca-Cola Amatil; Siobhan McCrory, Executive General Manager, Marketing & Innovation, Pact Group; Jaideep Gokhale, Cluster Leader for Sustainability, TetraPak; Nicole Ohm, Senior Marketing Manager, Brownes Dairy; Jean Baillard, General Manager, TerraCycle Australia & New Zealand; Barry Cosier, Director, Sustainability, Australian Food & Grocery Council; Brooke Donnelly, Chief Executive Officer, APCO; and more.
