The Packaging Council of Australia (PCA) is the peak national association that represents producers and users of all types of packaging and packaged goods in Australia.

PCA is a national association of raw material suppliers, packaging manufacturers, packaging users, retailers and packaging designers/consultants.

Industry challenges faced by companies in the packaging supply chain:
  • environmental 
  • sustainability 
  • supply chain
  • retailers
  • standards 
The Council sees the importance of the views of packaging companies be clearly and explicitly stated in the formation of government policy and in the public debate on these and other relevant issues.

Regular meetings and functions are held by the Victorian, New South Wales and Queensland Divisions within the Council. These events provide members and their guests with the opportunity to hear from speakers addressing topical issues of interest to the packaging supply chains. It also provides useful networking opportunities. The speakers at these functions continue to provide interesting and controversial perspectives.

The PCA distribute a number of publications to its members:
  • Media Glance: weekly email that summarises articles on packaging and packaging related matters that have appeared in the previous week's Australian mainstream newspapers and major weekly magazines.
  • Packaging News: an electronic media monitoring service, comprising of concise daily overview of any packaging related information gained from international and Australian newspapers, websites and other sources. 
  • Note from the CEO: regularly emailed to members informing them on major issues facing the industry and the Council.
