AIP Technical Dinner bookings closing soon
Time is running out to book for the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) NSW Technical Dinner on Wednesday 19 February. Guest speakers Zdenka Fuller from NSW Health and Fergal Barry from Arthritis Australia will deliver a joint presentation discussing why NSW Health is encouraging manufacturers to make food packaging easier to open.
The presentation will also cover how NSW Health and Arthritis Australia Packaging Guidelines are assisting manufacturers to design packaging that is easier to open, and how accessibility is winning contracts and opening new markets.
The Accessibility Design Centre has developed comprehensive new Food Packaging Guidelines for NSW Health which helps companies design easy-to-open packaging. Food packaging that is difficult to open is recognised as a contributing factor to malnutrition in patients.
NSW Health is tasked with ensuring that packaged food served to patients in NSW public hospitals is high quality and easy to open. The Food Packaging Guidelines enable NSW Health to select easier-to-open packaging and to work closely with manufacturers to encourage them to make simple yet effective changes to food packaging to ensure patients can more easily open them.
Stephen Barter MAIP, Principal Consultant at Revenue Doctor, will deliver a presentation entitled “Real value in plastic bottles: Questions you need to be asking”. Barter will outline three overriding factors in a plastic bottle project that mean the difference between success and mediocrity, and why companies must design for the future.
The Technical Dinner will be held at 6:00 pm at Oatlands Golf Course Club House. Bookings close on 14 February.
