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

10.30 - 11.00

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?
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

11.00 - 11.30

Plastic packaging back into the cycle!

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

11.30 - 12.00 – Coffee Break • Networking • Marketplace

12.00 - 12.30

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?
Special guests
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

12.30 - 13.00

Ready to go

Out-of-home consumption is continuously increasing. Society is more mobile than ever before. Traditional meals and eating habits and their times are changing. People are snacking and eating on the go. And, if possible, in a healthy way. But this cannot be done unpackaged. What does this mean for suppliers, retailers and the demands on packaging?
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

13.00 - 14.15 – Lunch Buffet • Networking • Marketplace

14.15 - 15.00 – 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

15.00 - 15.45 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
• Arno Zerhusen, Sales Manager, Pöppelmann TEKU®, Pöppelmann GmbH & Co. KG Kunststoff-Werkzeugbau
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

15.45 - 16.30 – Coffee Break • Networking • Maretplace

16.30 - 17.00

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

17.00 - 17.30

Less is more!

This motto applies in many areas. Modern sustainable minimalism, which limits itself to the essential, is the order of the day. Consumers are longing for functional purism instead of lavish packaging. New stars in the packaging sky therefore skilfully combine naturalness with protection and a clear statement. A cool transparent coating? How reduced must the solution be? What other solutions are available?
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

17.30 - 18.00

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

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

18.00 - 18.20
