Pro2Pac Exhibition 2017

Monday February 27, 2017

Pro2Pac is the UK’s only food & drink packaging event. Together with Waste-Works and IFE, it covers the full circle from Farm to Fork to Fertiliser and Fuel – three must-attend events all under one roof.

Taking place at ExCel London between 20-22 March, the event features a fantastic line-up of exhibitors and speakers.

The ‘Outside the box’ programme of speakers includes a large number of industry thought-leaders, including our Head of Sustainability, Jo Gilroy.

Jo will be taking part in a lively debate about coffee cup recycling, titled ‘Storm in a teacup’. Chaired by Martin Kersh, Executive Director of the Foodservice Packaging Association (FPA), other speakers taking part in the debate include Adrian Pratt from Benders Paper Cups, Dr Chris Sherrington from Eumomia Reasearch & Consulting and Simon Rayner from Friends of the Earth.

The debate runs between 1pm – 2pm on Tuesday 21 March and the discussion is summarised by Pro 2 Pac as:

‘Despite the well-meaning Britons who are placing their disposable cups in the recycling bin, The UK currently throws away 2.5bn coffee cups a year. Martin Kersch chairs what is sure to be a divisive debate on what – if anything – needs to be done about the coffee cup.’
