The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has release a teaser list of some of the industry thought leaders that will be speaking at its 2023 Australasian Packaging Conference.
Some of these speakers include: Planet Ark CEO Rebecca Gilling, Australian Beverages Council CEO Geoff Parker, Australian Food and Grocery Council CEO Tanya Narden, Woolworths Food Company head of packaging Bryan McKay, NutriV CEO Raquel Said, Foodbank Australia CEO Brianna Casey, Tomra Cleanaway CEO James Dorney and Greenskin Wine co-founder Mike Davies.
The conference will look at how the various industries are heading towards the 2025 National Packaging Targets and will cover topics such as refusal, reduction, reuse, recycle and circularity.
The speakers will also look at what is beyond 2025 and what the industry needs to do to design out waste, eliminate problematic materials, reduce single use plastic and ensure that businesses and people are capable of collecting, sorting, recovering and recycling all the materials and packaging formats in A/NZ.
The 2023 AIP Australasian Packaging Conference will be held at the Crown Promenade, Melbourne on the 28 and 29 March and will be designed to deliver a two-day educational program that will cover a broad range of topics relating to the theme 2025 & BEYOND.
During the two-day event, the AIP will also be running the 2023 Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards as the gala dinner on 28 March.
This will be the first time since the pandemic that the AIP has been able to run these two industry events in person. 2023 is also a very special year for the AIP in that the institute will be celebrating its 60th anniversary.
