Supplier News

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is pleased to advise of a joint event with the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology in Auckland on Tuesday the 29th of September.

‘Packaging Trends and where are we heading’ will be the theme for the technical evening and the speakers will be Alistair Sayers, MAIP, Packaging Manager, Frucor Beverages and Rick Poynter, AAIP Poynter Agencies Ltd.

Alistair Sayers (MAIP) - Packaging Manager, Frucor Beverages Ltd. "Interesting Packaging Innovations and Trends in the Beverage Market." This visual presentation will look at formative aspects of beverage packaging in an Australasian sense. From supermarket interaction and bottle designs to beverage can and corrugated cartons.

Rick Pointer (AAIP) - Poynter Agencies Ltd. Rick will present on Biodegradable & Compostable Plastics from the perspective of a “Front of Life - Use - End of Life” sequence. The presentation addresses issues such as “Food vs Fuel, GM crops and renewable vs fossil base”. Differences that exist in end of life disposal options and the question “Is the reality of recycling always a closing of the loop?” The litter issue, is it a material or social one? What is known about the environmental effects of undegraded and fragmented plastic debris in the terrestrial and marine environments? It promises to be interesting and informative.

The event takes place on Tuesday, 29th September @ 6:00-8:30pm. Registration is from 5:30pm. The event locations will be held at Commercial Traveller’s Club Lounge and Dining Area, 27-31 Ohinerau Street, Remuera, Auckland, NZ.
