Flexo association to address sustainability challenges for the supply chain

The EFIA event, which will take place on September 28 at The Football Hotel, Manchester, has been arranged in response to recent media and consumer concerns regarding packaging and the environment

EFIA, the European Flexographic Industry Association, is to host a breakfast meeting next month to debate sustainability challenges presented to the flexo supply chain.

The event, which will take place on September 28 at The Football Hotel, Manchester, has been arranged in response to recent media and consumer concerns regarding packaging and the environment.

Key items on the agenda will be government direction and drivers, and evolving retailer strategies and plans. The meeting is open to both EFIA members and non-members. Delegates will have access to a panel of leading industry stakeholders, including manufacturers, retailers and government and research bodies.

Debbie Waldron-Hoines, consultant CEO at EFIA, said: ‘Sustainability is a core issue for UK industry as a whole but our objective at this meeting will be to address specific challenges posed to the flexographic industry, including emerging challenges for the paper and film sectors.

‘It’s a valuable opportunity for industry professionals to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns and form a comprehensive flexographic sector response.’

She continued: ‘With so many conflicting, and often frustrating, stories circulating in the media it will be refreshing to hear the true "voice" of the flexographic industry this September.’

The EFIA breakfast meeting event is available to non-members at a charge of £15. Please contact admin@efia.uk.com to book a place.
