Virtual Event

Virtual MeetingPack 2021, a prelude to MeetingPack 2022, will present innovations and address the challenges of the food packaging sector on 27 May through a series of inspiring presentations and round-table discussions.

Sponsors such as the ENPLATER GROUP, UBE, RSM, and TPL, as well as collaborating bodies AVEP, PlasticsEurope, FIPA, EFE (Spanish Association of Flexible Packaging Converters), and PACKNET, not to mention a dozen national and international specialist media outlets, have already confirmed their support of the event.

The latest technological innovations in sustainable barrier packaging will be presented in the two separate blocks of this virtual workshop: Solutions in sustainable packaging and the incorporation of recycling in packaging. In the first session, Ángela Osma, Technical and Sustainability Manager of the ANAIP Packaging Division, will discuss her strategic vision of the development of packaging, along with the new Spanish waste law and its effects on packaging. A round-table discussion will then be moderated by Carlos Enguix, Manager of Packaging Technologies at AINIA, with the participation of Pere Coll, R&D Manager at the ENPLATER GROUP, Patrick Zimmerman, Executive Board Member of FKUR, and Pedro Ruiz Rodríguez, Environmental Sustainability Engineer at NESTLÉ ESPAÑA. The panellists will discuss trends, challenges and opportunities in the development of sustainable packaging from the perspective of business, including topics such as ecodesign, recyclability, mono-material packaging, renewable sources, biodegradation and compostability.

In the second block, Óscar Hernández, Managing Director of ANARPLA, will provide his own strategic overview of the use of recycled material in the food packaging sector and will identify major current legislative and supply challenges. Lorena Rodríguez, Packaging Group Leader at AIMPLAS, will then moderate a round-table discussion on strategy, trends, challenges and opportunities in the use of recycled material in packaging development from a business point of view. Other topics on the agenda will include mechanical recycling, chemical recycling and the importance of a functional barrier in this type of packaging. The three experts on the panel will be Gonzalo Sánchez, Technical Manager at COEXPAN (GRUPO LANTERO – INNOTECH), Borja Lafuente, Head of Sustainability at DANONE IBERIA, and Thomas Bak Thellesen, Senior Director of Group Sustainability and External Affairs at FAERCH.
