Pack Expo Las Vegas 2013 is coming up, and it's going to be a big one. The expo is going to be bigger and better-attended than ever—and PI will be there, of course, showing off some of our latest packaging solutions. But what else can you expect from this year's expo?
Plastic Food Packaging Innovations
Plastic food packaging has been a hot topic in the industry lately, and with good reason—issues of sustainability, durability, product protection and more have never been bigger. That's why this year's expo will include a series of presentations on food and beverage safety and manufacturing, including participation by the Food Safety Summit Resource Center (FSSRC).
This focus on plastic food packaging improvements is a positive step for both the expo and the industry—from stock packaging to custom designs, we at PI know the major benefits of designing and creating advanced food packaging solutions. A renewed focus on creating better plastic food packaging can lead to more efficient and sustainable solutions, and Pack Expo Las Vegas is the perfect opportunity to spread that message.
Of course, plastic food packaging won't be the only focus at this year's expo—but it certainly makes sense as one of the highlights. Plastics are quickly becoming an increasingly prominent staple of the food packaging industry, replacing materials like glass and metal more and more to reduce costs, increase appeal, and lower both food and packaging waste.
With plastic packaging solutions gaining such a foothold in the food and beverage industry, this is the ideal time to educate more packaging companies on creating better, more sustainable designs. Of course, we at PI don't mind being innovators when it comes to plastic food packaging—but the more packaging companies get on board alongside us, the more our industry can grow as a whole.
