Use of single use plastics in the food and drink industry is under scrutiny because of its impact on the environment. As a result, food manufacturers and retailers have made commitments to move to sustainable packaging where possible. Different packaging solutions have been proposed including reducing the amount of plastic used, recycling or reusing plastics, using alternative materials or a combination of the three. However, it is critically important that food safety and quality are not compromised. Shelf life is a key consideration when a new product is developed, or packaging is modified.

The aim of this seminar is to help industry make informed choices on the types of materials and design of packaging that reduce plastic use and increase recyclability. It will also focus on the challenges of shelf life and shelf life assessment when using sustainable packaging.

The event which will host speakers from academia, industry, retailers, industry schemes and membership bodies will cover:
