In this webinar we will hear from three speakers on the hot topic of plastics and packaging. Each speaker will discuss the specific challenges for their industry sector including the environmental or climate impacts. They will outline how they see the future focusing on more sustainable packaging opportunities and explain how their sector may address the challenges faced.

This is the first of three webinars in a series in which the F&DSIG are looking for members to get involved to share best practice in key strategic areas; packaging and plastics, food security and digitalisation, and sustainable food/beverage production. Join the webinar to find out more!
