Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has confirmed the details of the forthcoming Flexible Packaging: Now and Into the Future training course, which will run alongside the Foodtech PackTech expo on September 20 in Auckland. 

The course is suitable for packaging technologists and designers, product developers, marketing personnel, technical and production staff using packaging, and sales and marketing representatives looking for a crash course on all things ‘flexible’.

The Flexible Packaging: Now and Into the Future training course will cover the fundamentals of flexible packaging, its benefits, how you chose the specific structures to match the product, its performance, marketing challenges and packaging manufacturing.

The industry faces challenges regarding sustainability in packaging, and the course will address available options, the pros and cons of compostability and recyclability and other alternative materials. 

Additionally, the course will look at plans for flexible packaging and available recycling options to meet the 2025 National Packaging Targets.

Participants will be able to understand better the benefits of flexible packaging, the manufacturing process, the latest packaging trends and market drivers, as well as the future of flexible films and the changes ahead.

The course will be presented by Joe Foster, a chief executive officer of Close the Loop Group, who has been heavily involved in the flexible packaging industry for over 35 years with experience in engineering, production, technical, sales and marketing.

All AIP training courses are internationally recognised and approved to attain Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) points towards the global designation.
