Thin Wall Packaging 2016 offers a unique networking opportunity for leading food companies, retailers, packaging manufacturers, researchers, and suppliers of the industry to debate the latest developments and market trends in light weight plastics packaging. Thin wall plastic packaging like tubs, cups, pots, trays, clamshells and plastic jars provide a means of supplying consumer appeal, convenience and product protection, while reducing the carbon footprint versus more traditional materials, such as glass or metal. TWP applications include yellow fats, yogurt, ice cream, meat, bakery, fresh fruit and vegetables. Microwave, freezer, and oven-proof containers are a rapidly growing market, enabled by developments in manufacturing technology and barrier materials. Innovative designs and decoration technologies are used as tools that help OEMs communicate brand image to the target consumer.
