The Ecopack Stage

The dedicated Ecopack Stage will offer a full programme of seminars and interactive sessions exploring current trends, issues and possibilities in the world of sustainable packaging.

The Big Plastics Debate and Ecopack Challenge will both be hosted on The Ecopack Stage.

Those looking to tackle sustainability head-on will be able to hear the latest successful case studies and insights from some of the leading eco gurus and brands working in sustainable packaging today.

The Ecopack Stage is sponsored by Charpak, a Cambridgeshire-based packaging design and manufacturing company that is fully embracing the need for sustainable solutions for ‘the new plastics economy’. Spearheading the company’s commitment to 360° recyclability is the innovative Twist-Loc product: an exciting new concept in food packaging that brings a host of benefits to food manufacturers, retailers, consumers and the planet at large.
