Packaging will be one of the topics of focus at the upcoming FoodTech Qld tradeshow, which will take place on the Gold Coast on July 7-8.
With the 2025 National Packaging Targets and 2030 Food Waste Targets driving the innovations of many businesses, the show will cover packaging design for food and beverage as one of its sessions.
This session, scheduled to take place on July 8 at 1.30pm to 3.30pm will revolve around rethinking and redesigning food and beverage packaging.
This session will also cover how to embed circular design practices into NPD processes and to better understand what innovations are standing out on shelf in the region.
Design innovation not only helps businesses to stay ahead of competitors and resonate with consumers; in many cases these innovative and intuitive packs are also more sustainable and offer a much lower environmental impact to previous designs.
In addition, this session will showcase award-winning packaging designs that have been recognised locally and globally for standing out.
Many of these designs also offer significant shifts in materials, reductions in environmental impacts, are light weighted, include recycled content, are refillable and reusable and more. Come and see what the future of food and beverage packaging looks like.
