Target : All companies in the food industry that package products.


In a highly regulated context, food companies are challenged on the packaging they can use and put on the market, in terms of recyclability, single use – especially plastic-, reuse, etc. This is why it is wise to ask the right questions about changing their packaging.


The objectives of this workshop are to review the regulatory restrictions in this area, to propose a clear approach with the experts involved, as well as alternative existing solutions, to provide feedback from companies that are pioneers in this field and to outline the possible support provided by ADEME from a financial point of view.
