London - 02 March 2023

The UK Food Industry is ever-expanding with new products and start-ups launching all the time. With more competition than ever before, your products need to stand out and engage consumers in-store and in the home. But this also means more opportunities to communicate with your customers, so it has never been more crucial for innovation within food packaging. Whether it be structural innovation to enable home delivery with the rise of e-commerce in the food industry, design innovation to appeal on the shelf, sustainable innovation for a better end of life journey and a circular economy, 


Together with the partner we have engaged with and secured a panel group of industry leaders who will hold an open forum debate following on from the focus group.

This focus group is designed to disrupt the familiar paradigms of industry events. It’s a platform for meaningful and practical discussion that moves us forward on the key dilemmas, with a carefully crafted agenda focusing on how we progress collaboratively, not self-congratulation.

Along the way, we'll be taking a look at the most pressing issues in packaging sustainability; including reuse models, the circular economy, recycling, plastic waste, and regulation.

The Key Topics:

Food & Beverage Plastic Packaging European Legislation and Policy Overview
Improving Sustainability & Circular Economy
Assessing the Possibilities of Applications in Chemical Recycling
Looking at Innovation in Packaging Materials
Acknowledging Future Directions in Plastic Packaging and Scientific Development
Exploring New Plastic Recycling Technologies
A Practical Approach on the Consumer’s View

Some of the leading industry organisation participating in this partner focus group include:

• Marks and Spencer

• Morrisons
• PepsiCo
• Plastic Bank
• Procter & Gamble

• Tetra Pak
• Sidel
