Paulig's Sustainability Initiatives

High-quality and durable packaging plays a key role in preventing food waste. Good packaging protects the product and its taste throughout the production chain and ensures that the product remains fresh. Important perspectives in decreasing food waste include the size of the packaging and how easy it is to use and empty. Paulig Group invests strongly in packaging development and also takes into account the environmental effects of packaging. Did you know that Paulig was the first in the world to introduce renewable raw materials to vacuum coffee packages?

Great discussions with engaged and knowledgeable peers, I left with new insights.

The Summit brought together some great speakers, giving several angles on the topics that are currently challenging packagers, brands and retailers. Having both the wider trend picture and also technical expertise on specific solutions really helped to focus the event onto some insightful sessions

Global Packaging Insights Director, Mintel

The range of speakers was excellent and the talks exceptionally well presented. It was a very valuable opportunity to meet up and network with both old and new contacts which is always important. It also enables me to visit Amsterdam which is one of my favourite cities!
