ONLINE TALK: Packaging. What is the Solution?


Wednesday 12 January 2022


Can plastic packaging ever be better for the environment than paper? Why don’t we just get rid of packaging altogether?

Why isn’t all packaging recyclable? Is all plastic made from petrochemicals?

The answers to these questions may surprise you.

Join Benjamin Punchard, Senior Global Packaging Director at Mintel, the leading market research agency, as we discover how to ensure that we shop in an environmentally friendly way. We’ll explore why brands are reducing their plastic use and explore how shoppers can identify environmentally responsible packaging; why so little packaging is compostable and learn about the astonishing and invisible sophistication of an ordinary plastic salad bag.
