The expo will discuss the role of packaging beyond containing and protecting its contents and providing information about the product; speakers will address the role of packaging in reducing food waste, and the measures packaging technologists, designers and engineers can undertake to minimise food waste through packaging.

Speakers for this AIP-hosted session include Sam Oakden, FIAL; Mark Barthel, Fight Food Waste CRC; Nerida Kelton MAIP, Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP); and Alan Adams MAIP, Sealed Air. The panel will discuss the National Food Waste Strategy, Save Food Packaging guidelines and best practice Save Food Packaging Design.
