Global Food Contact Conference in Rome,  Italy 15-17 May 2017

Over 180 experts from across the food contact industry will gather in Rome, Italy from 15–17 May 2017 to attend Smithers Pira’s Global Food Contact (http://www.food-contact.com/global-food-contact/agenda).

Food and beverage packaging was valued at $221 billion in 2016 and with food packaging predicted to grow at a faster rate than any other packaging market in the next five years it’s clear why it’s increasingly important to stay up-to-date with regulations in this ever-changing industry. Food contact regulations across the globe often fail to unite, so players from across the supply chain have a constant battle to stay-to-date with key legislation in all countries they export to, which is why Global Food Contact offers them the perfect solution.

Described as “An  efficient and enjoyable means of staying up to date with the global regulatory landscape” by
Allan Brown from Scholle IPN Packaging Inc., Global Food Contact offers delegates the opportunity to hear the latest industry trends, deepen their understanding of international FCM requirements, gain updates on food contact legislation, network with food contact professionals and receive the latest information on regulatory requirements in all key markets they export to including Europe, US, Canada, Asia and South America.

Attendees to the conference include industry leaders and legislators from across the food contact supply chain such as regulatory affairs professionals, chemical manufacturers, material suppliers, brand owners and R&D scientists developing new chemicals for food contact applications.

Sessions include:

  • Printing inks for food contact materials: European regulatory status and projects; the ink industry’s approach Sebastian Gierisch, hubergroup
  • On harmonizing global food contact regulations – an industry perspective Jim Huang, Coca-Cola, USA
  • China’s food contact regulations related to plastics Ningjia Zheng, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP, USA

Delegates to the conference will also be able to book themselves onto an exclusive pre-conference workshop, taking place on Monday 15th May with Head of Food Contact Compliance at Smithers Pira, Alistair Irvine.
