09.30 - 10.00

The long way to the home and what is left

The online trade is particularly in the focus of the discussion about food packaging. After all, food is often very sensitive and perishable and therefore requires special cooling and protection. And so the packaging costs for the shippers are particularly high. We take a closer look at three deliveries as examples: What is left over?
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

10.00 - 10.30

How organic can plastic be?

Compostable and biodegradable nets and plastic packaging have long been offered as alternatives. But how organic are these alternatives? What is the real situation regarding compostability? How quickly do they actually degrade?
Prof. Dr. Hans-Josef Endres, Universität Hannover
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

10.30 - 11.00 – Coffee Break • Networking • Marketplace

11.00 - 11.30

Recycling what is possible

Recyclability is the keyword of the hour. It is well known that raw material resources are finite. Recycling is a source of hope in Europe and especially in Germany when it comes to resource and environmental protection. What is the current state of science? Where are the limits? What is possible in the future?
Christina Schulz, Der Grüne Punkt, DSD – Duales System Holding GmbH & Co. KG
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

11.30 - 12.00

Back into the cycle

Eco-design and recycling management. In order to handle our plastic material responsibly, we apply three approaches to sustainable material use: reducing the amount of material used (Reduce), developing reusable solutions (Reuse) and manufacturing recyclable products from post consumer material (Recycle), which circulate in a closed material cycle. In the company-wide PÖPPELMANN blue® initiative all activities are bundled, that are intended to promote the idea of closed material cycles.
• Arno Zerhusen, Pöppelmann TEKU®, Pöppelmann GmbH & Co. KG Kunststoff-Werkzeugbau
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

12.00 - 13.30 – Lunch Buffet • Networking • Marketplace

13.30 - 14.15 – BREAKOUT 1

Forum 1: Full of cardboard

Paper, cardboard, pasteboard - well-tried, sometimes frowned upon, but suddenly interesting again. Cardboard solutions are often the alternative of choice. With good reason?
Ruurd Schut, JASA Packaging
Horst Bittermann, Mayr-Melnhof Karton
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt-Informations-GmbH

Forum 2: Slides – A look at the next generation

Hardly any other material is under discussion in this way. But there is also hardly any other area in which such great technical progress has been made. What can we expect in the future?
Nadine Barsch, Barsch GmbH
Harry Albus, JX Nippon Anci SAS
Moderation: Bettina Döhnert, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

14.15 - 15.00 Uhr – BREAKOUT 2

Forum 3: Safe on the road

Transport packaging ensures safe and compact transport. Loose goods in particular can thus reach the POS in an environmentally friendly way.
• Dr. Kurt Jäger, Euro Pool System

Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

Forum 4: Modern solutions must be sustainable

Nothing is as important to the consumer as sustainability and ecology. This is how consumers present themselves to the public and in surveys. Resource-saving packaging is therefore in demand. And the trade levels are taking this to heart and reacting with innovations.
Massimo Bellotti, Carton Pack
Peter van Ostaijen, Corrugated Benelux Association (CBA)
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

15.00 - 15.30 – Coffee Break • Networking • Marketplace

15.30 - 15.50

It also works without - unpacked at the POS
Do we even need packaging? Or can we do without? And if so, how and where? What challenges do suppliers and retailers have to master? Where are the biggest hurdles in purchasing? A retail concept on the test bench.
• Carsten Zielke, Edeka Zielke
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt-Informations-GmbH

15.50 - 16.10

Packaging 2030

When it comes to packaging, it is no longer just a matter of effectively protecting sensitive products or offering consumers the simplest possible transport solution or manufacturers optimum marketing space. It has long since become a social and global topic, which is also the subject of controversial discussions and quickly heats up emotions. Where does society and the economy want to go and where must it develop here and internationally?
Norwich Rüße, MdL Bündnis 90/Die Grünen
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

16.10 - 17.00

Packaging is not a walk in the park. Are you fit for the marathon?

Panel discussion. How can the challenges be mastered? How can the various demands for protective packaging, convenient transport and protection of resources and the environment be reconciled? First of all: only together. Only if everyone pulls in the same direction can appropriate progress be made.
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH
