16th May – 26th May 2022
In 2019 alone, UK supermarkets sold 900,000 tonnes of plastic packaging – a weight equivalent to 90 Eiffel Towers! With consumers becoming increasingly conscious of the impact of plastic waste upon the environment, now is the perfect time for food and drink brands to keep up with trends and start moving towards sustainable packaging alternatives.
Plant-based plastics, stone paper, palm leaves and wood pulp: there are so many options when it comes to plastic alternatives. For example, Guinness beer bottling company Diageo recently announced its pledge to replace the existing plastic packaging to biodegradable or recyclable cardboard – as well as eliminating the plastic ring holders that so often end up in our waterways and oceans. On top of that, food, and drink retailers such as Starbucks have agreed to invest in and pursue more sustainable food and drink packaging alternatives.
Innoveat is inviting new and existing buyers and suppliers from all food and drink sectors to attend the STANCE 2022 expo. It is the perfect opportunity to meet and connect with other brands committed to sustainable packaging – make sure you do not miss out!
