Explore trends in sustainable food packaging, innovations & partnership opportunities at Impact Hub, with Futureproof.community.
About this Event:
How can we make food packaging sustainable? Plastic waste is a global problem, and the EU is preparing the transition towards a circular economy. Where does that leave food packaging? During this event, we will explore trends, innovations and opportunities, together with Futureproof.community by MVO Nederland.
This evening is for innovation-seekers and makers. We will discuss success stories and do some live matchmaking, especially to make it easier for established companies and smaller innovative parties to find and talk to each other. You’ll meet and learn from entrepreneurs and innovators from our Food, Plastics, and Circularity Ecosystems and be able to start new collaborations.
The warming up will be a panel interview, moderated by Caroli Buitenhuis of Green Serendipity, expert on bioplastics, circular economy and sustainable packaging. Chocolatemakers, Willicroft and People of Tomorrow will share their journey towards a sustainable package for their products.
Keynote speaker of this event will be Willemijn Peeters, founder of Searious Business, who helps (food) businesses to become plastic-free and circular. Her mission is to help transform our global economy and is an expert in bringing about organisational strategy & operational change.
