Food & Beverage
Plastic has become the ultimate material for creating food-grade packaging and catering solutions but it has also become a major contributor to our global plastic crisis – this is something that 2019 attendees such as Coca-Cola, Danone, Red Bull and Nestlé clearly want to reverse. But packaging and solutions for food can be made from a wide variety of polymers, which often makes them difficult to recycle. What is becoming clear is that the problem is too big for recycling alone, and with more and more governments and consumers around the world calling for a complete ban on single-use plastic, it is clear that the industry must find innovative and alternative solutions. In 2019, we presented a multitude of available concepts and in 2020 we will provide a platform to unveil a whole lot more.
In this stream, we will bring the entire industry supply chain together to create and design products and catering solutions that will meet food and beverage manufacturers requirements, whilst eliminating unnecessary plastics, introduce the use of new bio-based materials, and test them to ensure they are more easily recyclable, reusable or 100% biodegradable.
