Global Packaging Perspective for 2021

Is plastics really the bad omen of our industry? We need to keep this valuable material and we need to keep it where it belongs. Pierre will explain in this presentation where it belongs.

We need global synergy to develop solutions that reduce packaging volume and impact, without compromising on protection.

How does the World Packaging Organisation view the state of plastics? Pierre explores this future along with alternatives, targets, achievements, alliances, and the global challenges to reduce packaging waste.

He will focus on the design and implementation of affordable and effective schemes that are attainable and meaningful to countries or regions.

What about consumer and public awareness of packaging waste? what about Governments” responses, and some of the steps being taken to introduce regulations to drive sustainability.

He will complete his presentation with innovative opportunities that will bridge current sustainability shortfalls.

Panel Discussion


Increasing Demand for Food ShippingTraceability

•COVID-19 has thrown the world into a chaotic environment. Many cases was associated with imported seafood which then allow people to reiterate the importance of traceability. According to OSHA, most food-born illnesses either start or expand within the food supply chain. The need for retailers and suppliers to document the who’s, what’s, where’s, and when’s of every aspect of the food supply chain, not only for consumer safety and protecting their brands – but legal reasons as well, has stimulated a growing need for more accurate traceability standards.

  1. The need for Food Supply Chain Traceability – What’s the motivation?

  2. What role is technology playing in this and more specifically Blockchain?

  3. Why has this still not taken off in a big way, beyond a few successful POCs and even fewer commercial implementations?

  4. Is the business model / economics viable today?

  5. What’s the future?
