Global Pouch Forum 2014 SOLD OUT!

 

Pouches are Fast-growing,
Consumer-centric

Go to the grocery store these days and be amazed at how many products are packaged in pouches. There’s baby food, razor blades, dog treats, wines, detergents, soup mixes—even green beans. The flexible plastic pouch is the fastest-growing type of packaging and is expected to outpace U.S. GDP growth.

While food, especially meat, snacks and candy, dominates in flexible packaging, over the next five years, expect to see more growth in beverages and frozen foods.

Flexible packaging is now a primary package, especially for food, and incorporates functionality never before offered in packaging. Flexible packaging is becoming more complex as more features are built in.

 

It is an exciting time to be part of the flexible packaging industry and the Packaging Strategies group is excited to be presenting the 17th annual Global Packaging Forum to showcase the latest in markets, technologies and trends.

Last year more than 500 leaders from the packaging and consumer product goods communities attended this sold-out event. They heard from companies such as Heinz and Kraft—two companies passionate about innovation.

This year more than 30 speakers from consumer packaged goods and packaging companies will answer these questions and more:

  • Will the pouch and flexible packaging continue to expand exponentially in a rapidly changing packaging industry that is witnessing greater competition for shelf space?
  • What markets offer more penetration for flexible packaging?
  • What are the new lightweight films being used?
  • What country has the materials manufacturing edge?
  • What kind of consumer research goes into the decision to use a pouch instead of a box?

 

Learn about where this year’s leaders are putting their bets in flexible packaging.
