The Sustainable Packaging Knowledge Institute (KIDV) will hold two round table discussions with the main question “Zero waste, is that feasible?” Together with producers and importers of packaged products and other chain parties, KIDV discusses two current topics:
10:30 - 11:15
Opportunities and challenges of reusable packaging
11:15 - 12:00
The effects of 100% recyclable packaging
13:00 - 14:30

It is therefore logical that there are strict rules for food packaging and the environment in which it is produced. What new safety and quality challenges can the food industry expect in 2020? Where are the opportunities for improvement?
