On May 15, 2013 during the PACEX Toronto tradeshow (May 14-16, 2013), PAC—The Packaging Association via PAC NEXT will offer an industry summit featuring top retailers and CPGers to discuss packaging optimization throughout the supply chain: Packaging Optimization Summit.

Featuring such companies as Unilever, Walmart, Target, Sobeys, P&G, Nestle, Loblaws, Monelez International, Kraft, Costco, Canadian Tire and Coca-Cola Ltd. who will all speak this summit, this collaborative leadership platform will drive awareness of packaging sustainability challenges and opportunities.

Individually, these host companies will discuss to the 800 or so summit executives and managers in this interactive and fun event, talking about their own corporate sustainability programs, share success stories and highlight optimization opportunities within their supply chains.

This collaborative industry approach will provide a forum for finding common ground and best practices, as well as highlighting some of the biggest challenges the packaging industry faces today and in the future.

The speakers will cover a broad range of topics, including:

  • supply chain collaboration;
  • supply chain mapping;
  • life cycle approach;
  • harmonization of PPP (printed paper product) stewardship programs;
  • design guidelines.

Says PAC NEXT executive director Alan Blake, “Our summit goal is to bring (the) industry together to advance the discussion on the value of packaging and how it can be optimized across the entire supply chain to reduce environmental impact and reduce waste.

“Further, we also see a tremendous opportunity to incorporate learnings from the Summit into the PAC NEXT Members Project technical committees as we focus on our vision of A World without Packaging Waste to deliver economical recovery of all packaging materials.”
