Global Pouch Forum is the longest-running flexible packaging conference, and due to COVID-19, it’s going virtual! This year, we’re excited to take part in the Flexible Packaging Sustainability panel, moderated by ALLIEDFLEX Technologies president and CEO, Dennis Calamusa. To discuss Scholle IPN’s participation in the conference, we sat down with Brent Haynam, Commercial Engineering Manager, who will also be representing us on the panel.
BH: Global Pouch Forum is the longest-running flexible packaging conference. It is one of the leading forums for flexible packaging attended by representatives across the entire segment, from supply chain to brand owners and all stakeholders in between. As a leader in flexible packaging, our participation works both ways: it offers us valuable insights and networking opportunities, but it also affords us the chance to further collaborative work that is necessary for growth in our industry. As with others focused on sustainability in packaging, I understand the challenges in sustainability will require complex solutions across the entire life cycle. The more occasions to discuss and work together, the better.
BH: I look forward to discussing sustainability with leaders in the industry. Our panel has a diverse composition which will provide meaningful insights from multiple perspectives in the industry. The panel also provides a great opportunity to see where attendees are focused and what questions they have on the critical arena of sustainability today.
Don’t miss out! The panel takes place Thursday, September 10, at 3pm ET. View the full forum agenda.
