  • Hear from industry experts on a number of innovations targeting superior performance in paper- and paperboard-based food packaging and serviceware
  • Learn about end-of-life management practices that improve environmental footprints
  • Gain regulatory insights regarding entry to supply European markets

Conference overview:

Brand owners generally prefer the natural look and feel of paper- and paperboard-based food packaging and serviceware compared to plastic products. Existing favorable environmental characteristics add appeal, and these products have high potential for even greater environmental advantages when it comes to end-of-life management. On the other hand, current performance sometimes is regarded as inferior to plastic in certain applications. But that is changing as innovative coatings emerge from the laboratory and into the marketplace. These new developments may lead to greater market penetration for paper- and paperboard-based products in the food industry.

If you are in paper and paperboard manufacturing or converting, or supply chemicals and polymers to the paper and paperboard industries, be sure to attend this one-day conference. Brand owners and the QSR sector will also gain insights from these conference presentations.
