For the first time at Packaging Innovations, Label&Print and Empack 2017, Campden BRI, the UK’s largest independent food and drink research body, will be hosting a series of intimate and topical sessions in a dedicated ‘mini’ theatre for the food and drink industries. The programme of presentations will take place during the UK’s leading packaging event on 1 & 2 March 2017 at the NEC, Birmingham.

The sessions will explore how organisations can ensure the strength, integrity of packaging, and correct physicochemical characteristics of their packaging so that it protects and preserves products as they move through the supply chain. Campden BRI will also discuss packaging solutions which do not adversely affect the product by interacting and causing taints or loss of quality. Presentations will include ‘The role of packaging in optimising quality’, ‘EU food contact material rules’, ‘Open surgery time – meet the experts’, ‘Understanding migration testing’ and ‘Food packaging: shape colour and texture’.

Visitors will also be able to take part in a ‘Spot the defect’ competition on the Campden BRI stand. The winner will be awarded a free place on the Campden BRI ‘Food contact materials’ seminar, worth over £300.

During the two-day event, the Campden BRI ‘mini’ Theatre will run alongside five other seminar theatres packed with educational content, delivered by major names including Amazon, Innocent Drinks, Jaguar Land Rover and Mondelēz International. There will also be a series of interactive show features, including the Innovation Showcase, The Drinks Symposium, The Great Innovation Debate, The Packaging Consultancy Clinic and The BIG Print Debate.

In addition to this, visitors will have access to 350 leading international suppliers who will be demonstrating the latest products and services which span the entire supply chain from design to machinery and materials to contract packing services.
