Food packaging supply chain announces major Summit in September

Following the success of the inaugural UK Food Packaging Summit in 2013, the British Coatings Federation, representing printing inks manufacturers, has joined forces with BPIF Cartons and the Stationers’ Company to bring an exciting programme together which will encompass all stages in the supply chain.

Presenters at the Summit will talk about how, through collaborative working, the consumer is ensured peace of mind when it comes to food packaging safety.

As before, representatives from the full food packaging supply chain will be represented, including brand owners and retailers (such as Marks and Spencer), that will explain their expectations of the packaging supply chain.

Other speakers include ink makers talking about the latest regulatory landscape in Europe impacting food safety, the Circular Economy and challenges facing carton printing, flexible packaging, and how to minimise the risks of migration.

The Summit takes place at Stationers’ Hall in London, on Wednesday September 28, 2016. The packed full day programme is available for £95 for members of related trade associations, with sponsorship opportunities available too. See more on BPIF’s website.

BPIF Cartons is the folding carton Special Interest Group of the British Printing Industries Federation, the business support organisation for employers in the printing, packaging and graphic communications industry.

The BCF is the sole Trade Association representing the UK paints, printing inks, powder coatings and wallcoverings manufacturers.
