#09.08.2019 APEAL is proud to partner NVC’s Design for Intended Use initiative at CibusTec Parma, 22-25th October

APEAL will be supporting the Netherlands Packaging Centre’s conference entitled Design for Intended Use (DIU) in food packaging at the forthcoming CibusTec (22-25th October in Parma), on Wednesday 23rd October (14.30 – 17.00)

In food packaging, DIU is important for stimulating and supporting responsible consumption and to assist the consumer with the proper disposal of the emptied food packs. The workshop will give an overview of DIU in food packaging worldwide and highlights key material design aspects.

More information and a full agenda can be found here.

APEAL’s Alexis Van Maercke will present the material perspective, detailing the relation between packaging material and the food it contains and how preserving food can help save it, notably with the total barrier and long shelf life associated with steel packaging.

The NVC infostand at the CibusTec 2019 will be located in the central corridor near the South Entrance (Area 4 on the exhibition floorplan).
