As supply chains seek greater efficiencies, the packaging industry has to adapt. Add to that the fact that society is undergoing a major change in the way that it views packaging and that Government is proposing to introduce some sweeping changes to the way that packaging is regulated. It all means that now, more than ever before, the packaging industry needs to be streamlined and carefully consider its choice of materials. Andy Barnetson, Director of Packaging Affairs at the Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI), will review the regulatory developments that are on the horizon both in UK and across Europe, the impact of the change in consumer opinion, and consider some of the changes that are likely to follow.Andrew Wilson has over 20 years experience of managing logistics and distribution improvement projects.
