Sustainability under discussion at interpack

The interpack packaging and processing event is being held from 7 to 13 May 2020 in Dusseldorf, Germany. Designed for the food, beverage, confectionery, bakery, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods sectors, the event represents the entire supply chain for the packaging sector and related process industry. It will feature processes and machinery for the packaging and processing of packaged goods as well as packaging media and materials.

Sustainability has been a subject that has been shaping the industry for years and that has recently become a hotly debated issue as a result of the discussion about plastic packaging in particular. Being held on the penultimate day of the event (12 May), a new one-day conference called ‘Life without packaging?’ will controversially highlight the subject areas of packaging, sustainability and the environment and present different perspectives. Critics and advocates will both have their say and will discuss necessities and what to avoid. The conference will focus on sustainability and environmental impact, hygiene and the reduction of food waste.

Held every three years, the last edition of interpack attracted over 2800 exhibitors and over 170,000 visitors from 168 countries. This year’s event is now fully booked with around 3000 exhibitors ready to present their packaging solutions.
