Paper-based food packaging and serviceware have authenticity and sustainability attributes that help build compelling stories for brands and end-users. Sustainable sourcing from renewable raw materials along with a slew of end-of-life management options have long favored the use of paper. Now, new innovations in coatings, laminates, and fiber processing are enabling ever more sophisticated performance applications of paper and paperboard in food-contact applications. Yet, there is much more to be done: This conference will build on previous years’ events to seek out the challenges and next opportunities for paper-based food packaging and serviceware applications. A range of expert speakers from throughout the supply chain will provide thought-provoking insights with an ultimate goal of realizing step-change increases in the demand for paper-based food packaging and serviceware.
