Charting the path towards sustainable and circular food packaging
05 May 2021 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
SCI - Society of Chemical Industry
Abstract:
With the mounting public pressure to reduce plastic use and to increase recycling, food packaging design and function is under intense scrutiny. The food industry is under pressure to use more sustainable packaging, maximise food shelf life and minimise, both, food and packaging wastes. Within an industry that is incredibly price-competitive and operates on very low margins, solutions must not be high cost or at the expense of food quality and safety, and these different challenges can often conflict. This webinar will cover this fascinating topic by presenting a retail perspective and that of a packaging solution provider.

Developing Careers in the Agri-Food Supply Chain
12 May 2021 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
SCI - Society of Chemical Industry
Abstract:
In this changing world the agri-food supply chain, from farm to table, is more important than ever. The agri-food supply chain is at the centre of the UK and brings food from UK farmers to UK residents every single day. However, the sector faces challenges in adapting to the modern world; from lowering the carbon footprint of our food, adapting to a growing population with a changing diet and navigating uncertain political and economic times, including the pandemic and Brexit. This session will briefly explore the agri-food supply chain, covering topics from farming initiatives to sustainable packaging. It will also focus on the unique and exciting careers of those at the forefront of this sector.
