Industry leaders confirmed at the UK’s only processing and packaging event dedicated to the food sector

The line-up for Pro2Pac Live has been announced, with leading experts from some of the UK’s top food and drink companies and associations confirmed to share insights into cutting-edge issues and technologies affecting the food and drink processing and packaging sector.

Speakers from firms including M&S, Miller Graphics and Warburtons will lead seminars and present case studies at Pro2Pac – the UK’s only processing and packaging event dedicated to the food sector – which is taking place from 17-20 March at ExCeL London.

Along with the seminars, which will cover topics such as innovation, augmented reality and branding, there will be daily lunchtime debates, in which a panel of experts will examine some of the food industry’s latest trends.

Sustainability will be a key focus at Pro2Pac Live, with seminars to include an examination of how the catering industry is adopting compostable packaging, delivered by Lucy Frankel at Vegware, and talks from the Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas Assocation (ADBA), explaining how Anaerobic Digestion can help companies cut costs and carbon emissions, as well as potentially driving revenue. Additionally, a lunchtime debate featuring Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), and chaired by Packaging News editor Josh Brooks, will assess the importance of sustainability within the food sector, and whether a more nuanced understanding of the issue is required.

Further lunchtime debates will look at how the food industry is adapting to a rising global population and the importance of design and manufacturing, which will be chaired by Kevin Vyse, Managing Director, at the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IOPP).

A series of informative and inspirational case studies will also be presented by leading firms to give practical advice on marketing, branding and design strategies. These include case studies on the hugely successful Waitrose Love Life initiative, delivered by Shaun Jones, Realisation Director at Pearlfisher, and a case study exploring the importance of brand colours in packaging, presented by Alan Brown at Miller Graphics.

Other seminars will include Robert Herridge from consultancy Packology examining how to reduce packaging costs; Spear System assessing innovations in labelling and technology; and Andrew Revel from the Faraday Centre for Retail Excellence offering an insight into the potential of augmented reality.

“Pro2Pac Live will give visitors a chance to hear the latest thinking from the very forefront of the food processing and packaging sector,” says Christopher McCuin, Event Director, Pro2Pac.

“With leading firms discussing the most advanced technologies, Pro2Pac Live will prove an invaluable source of information for companies aiming to seize the opportunities offered by the UK’s largest manufacturing sector,” he adds.

Trade visitors registering in advance at www.pro2pac.co.uk will gain free entry to the event.
