About Plastics & Paper in Contact with Foodstuffs

The vast amount of legislation on the safety of food packaging can be baffling and navigating through constant amendments to national and European regulations, plus changes in guidance documents relating to food contact materials is increasingly challenging for the packaging industry.

How can you ensure you stay compliant with the latest food contact regulations and best practice?

Plastics & Paper in Contact with Foodstuffs (P&P) is more than just a conference - it is a gathering of likeminded professionals looking to address all topical concerns in the food contact industry and develop their knowledge on how to best comply with the latest regulations for plastic and paper packaging in contact with foodstuffs.

The scope of this event is much broader than just plastics and paper, with insight into:

  • The latest legislation
  • Compliance case studies and pertinent issues of food packaging
  • Plus information on inks, coatings and adhesives

Presentations are delivered by globally renowned food contact experts, whereby representatives of EFSA, Tesco, DS Smith, Danone, Keller & Heckman, Steptoe & Johnson, MM Karton, FERA and Fraunhofer IVV were just some of the many great speakers to take the stage at previous editions of P&P.
