THE official line-up of thought leaders for the 2015 Pro2Pac event has been announced.

Pro2pac is the UK’s only event dedicated to food and drink packaging and will take place at ExCel London, from 22-25 March 2015. Leading packaging consultant Robert Herridge, Managing Director of Packology, developed the comprehensive line-up of seminars for the Pro2Pac Live programme.

The schedule is packed with thought leaders and industry experts who will share their insights on issues such as new technologies, design, sustainability and legislation. Mr Herridge said, “The packaging industry is facing challenging times as its role in the food and drink industry is becoming increasingly important and more valued. Issues such as food waste and security, sustainability and online retailing are high on the agenda for the food and drink sector, and all of the above and more will feature in the Pro2Pac Live programme. Visitors at the event will be hearing from the most respected voices in the packaging industry who will be offering unparalleled insight into the sector.”

The programme features case studies from the likes of Global Packaging Innovator for Coca Cola, Sanjay Patel, Andrew Jackson, Director of augmented reality services specialist ooh-AR and Riverford Organic’s James MacGregor.
