The two-day exhibition and conference program on plastic free packaging dedicated to packaging buyers and traders will be held parallel with the Free From Functional & Health Ingredients Expo 2020.

Featuring more than 250 companies from 34 countries, among them are renowned industry leaders such Fibra Pack, Nurel (Biopolymers), Uso Bio, Farla Disposables, Encaja Bio, Vissually, API Group, Millimetrica, DaklaPack Europe and many others. Official show partners are Pro Carton, FSC Netherlands and VNP (Dutch Society of Paper Producers), while more show partners will follow. Event Director, Ronald Holman explains; “Leading producers, packaging designers and retailers have asked us to create a bespoke event exclusively focused on plastic free alternative and better plastics solutions for the food, pharma, cosmetics and luxury products industry.

Retail awareness driven by consumers on plastic waste is growing through consumer movements and for many packaging suppliers it is now on top of their minds to offer their client base alternative and sustainable solutions. By focusing exclusively on plastic alternatives and smart plastic packaging solutions, we provide international attendees a comprehensive overview which won’t be found within the broad spectrum of other more traditional packaging exhibitions, mainly focused on machinery.” Free From Plastics Packaging 2020 will feature a Matchmaking Program organised by partner European Enterprise Network, a EU initiative, which is expected to arrange 500 one-on-one sessions between exhibitors and packaging buyers from around the globe. The free conference features a total of 60 presentations covering a wide range of market related issues and best cases by key-note packaging specialists, packaging designers and scientists.
