Ensuring packaging practitioners are fit for the future: Recent scientific and policy developments on plastic food packaging

Gemma Cornuau

9 févr. 2023

2nd webinar of the Erasmus+ FitNESS 2.0 project

For no other packaging material type are changes happening faster than for plastics. The European Union introduced a restriction on single-use plastic items and revised its plastics recycling regulation, individual countries are passing additional requirements, and negotiations for a new UN plastics treaty with potentially very wide-ranging impacts have started. Scientific research to ensure the safety of new and recycled packaging materials has also advanced. Join us for a webinar that will put these developments into perspective and share how the free training materials being developed by the FitNESS 2 project will help packaging current and future practitioners stay on top of the changes.
