09.25 - 09.30

Welcome to European Packaging Forum

• Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH
• Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

09.30 - 10.00

Packaging 2019 – the new legislation. All change?

The new packaging regulations. What's new? Challenges and solutions.
Dr. Bettina Sunderdiek, Head of Communications and Press,
Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

10.00 - 10.30

How the consumer ticks. What they think. How they act.

The consumer is only a human being. They may have noble intentions, but they usually act quite differently. This is also the case with packaging. If asked about wishes and preferences, they say they prefer to cut out superfluous packaging out of respect for the environment. 
Dr. Ralf Mayer de Groot, Mayer de Groot Marketing Research and Consult GmbH 
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

10.30 - 10.50

Just let it go?

Do we even need packaging? Or can we do without it? And if so, how and where? What drives the owners of "unpackaged" shops and their customers? What are the biggest hurdles in purchasing? A retail concept under the microscope.
Dr. Melanie Kröger, Hochschule für nachhaltige Entwicklung Eberswalde, Unverpackt Project  
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

10.50 - 11.10

Naked as nature created

New varieties offer new possibilities. Targeted breeding can make expensive packaging superfluous. The products nevertheless retain their quality.
Jan Doldersum, Manager Chain & Retail, Marketing & Business Development, Rijk Zwaan
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

11.10 - 11.40 – Coffee break • Networking • Marketplace

11.40 - 12.00

Appearance matter – design and packaging

Attractive and sexy sells best. But it depends on the packaging.
• Alessandro Ferraresso, Account Manager, Thinkersoup, Italy
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

12.00 - 12.20

Recycling – a never-ending circle? 

Raw material resources are finite. Recycling is well known in Europe and especially in Germany, and it is a source of hope when it comes to conserving resources and preserving the environment. But what is possible with different materials? What is the current scientific state of play? What is technically possible? Where are the limits? What will be possible in future?
• Frank Wellenreuther, ifeu - Institut für Energie- und Umweltforschung Heidelberg GmbH
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

12.20 - 12.40

Can good packaging be sustainable?

Environmental impacts, sustainability and the potential for alternative solutions.
Dr. Sergiy Smetana, Platform-Manager Food Data Group, Deutsches Institut für Lebensmitteltechnik e.V. 
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

12.40 - 14.00 – Lunch buffet • Networking • Marketplace

14.00 - 14.45 – BREAKOUT 1

Forum 1: (Not) on the wrong track

Natural, sustainble and clean.
Dr. Florence Aviat, PhD Biologie, YouR-ResearcH
Uwe Groll, GROW GmbH
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt-Informations-GmbH

Forum 2: The film matters

Often criticised but seldom superfluous. Modern films meet a wide range of requirements in terms of transparency, tension and permeability. What will the future bring?
• N.N.
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

14.45 - 15.30 – BREAKOUT 2

Forum 3: The other way – alternative packaging

Demands for sustainability, environmental protection and conservation of resources require new solutions. Packaging made from alternative materials. What is available, what is possible?
Uwe D'Agnone, Creapaper
• Marcin Spiewok, Business Development Manager, SILBO
Moderation: Bettina Döhnert, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

Forum 4: Cardboard – good protection for sensitive products

Cardboard and corrugated board are proven packaging materials that still play an important role today. What can we expect of them in the future? Both in store and for online trading?
• Thomas Maiwald, Director Market & Environment, FEFCO AISBL, FEFCO
Moderation: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

15.30 - 16.00 – Coffee break • Networking • Marketplace

16.00 - 16.30

Packaging solutions at the point of sale

Consumers are increasingly critical of packaging. At the point of sale, however, they are increasingly choosing for the packaged products. In 2018, the proportion of pre-packaged fresh vegetables increased again. The law makers have already reacted. The task is clear. Packaging must be reduced and more environmentally friendly materials developed. In search of sustainable and reusable forms of packaging at PoS.
• Uli Budnik, REWE Homberg & Budnik
• Dr. Svea Pacyna-Schürheck, Landgard  
Moderation: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

16.30 - 17.15

Properly wrapped. But how?

It is patently clear that we have to find new solutions today. However, the current challenges can only be met cooperatively throughout the entire value chain. What will truly sustainable packaging look like? A panel discussion on facts, trends and solutions.
Christian Müller, Reichenau-Gemüse eG
• Uli Budnik, REWE Dortmund
• Dr. Melanie Kröger, Hochschule für nachhaltige Entwicklung Eberswalde, Projekt unverpackt
Moderation: Claudia Schuh, Lorentzen & Sievers
