The design and manufacture of powerful, lasting innovations that capture loyalty in the food and beverage sector is falling heavily on the shoulders of the packaging executive. Injecting value into the pack means vamping up internal and external operations, while implementing potent methodology to manage risk, control costs, lower time-to-market and maximise sustainability. In-house teams are bolstering their innovation model across the supply chain, modifying structure, process and communication channels to drive targeted innovation. Looking outward, companies are broadening their outsourcing horizons, largely from disappointment with current suppliers and solution providers who cannot meet their transitioning creative and technological needs. Accessing dynamic partnerships with leading-edge collaborators in technology, design and materials, who can pump value into every step of the value chain, holds the key to the strategy that will attain both attention grabbing and sustainable packs. The eighth annual EuroPack Summit is the premium forum bringing elite buyers and sellers together. As an invitation-only event taking place behind closed doors, the summit offers food and beverage packaging executives and suppliers and solution providers an intimate environment for a focused discussion of key new drivers shaping the pack within the food and beverage sector.
