VIENNA (June 19, 1:15 p.m. ET) — The European packaging industry has been warned that it is failing to communicate the crucial role it plays by senior Linpac Group Ltd. executives.
Director of innovation Alan Davey, speaking at the European Plastics and Composites Innovation Days, organized by the Brussels-based European Plastic Converters Association, told delegates: “We have a very good case to make for plastics and plastics packaging but as an industry we are punching below our weight and need to work harder to show retailers and consumers the benefits of packaging for preserving and storing food at a time when food waste is one of the biggest environmental issues facing Europe.”
The event was held in Vienna from May 30 to June 1. Linpac is based in Knottingley, England.
