Focal Point 2015: Paperbased Food Packaging and Serviceware

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 enhance the appeal, and these products have high potential for even greater environmental advantages when it comes to end-of-life management. On the other hand, 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. This one-day conference will: • Provide brand-owner perspectives on paper-based food packaging and serviceware items • Provide insights from leading converting companies about future needs and trends in paper and paperboard packaging • Describe a number of innovations targeting superior performance • Cover end-of-life management practices that improve environmental footprints • Provide regulatory insights for those wishing to supply to European markets. The conference will be of benefit to paper and paperboard manufacturers and converters, as well as suppliers of chemicals and polymers to the paper and paperboard industries, brand owners and the QSR sector.
