Innovative Packaging Design for Food & Beverage

Central room C

With 2025 National Packaging Targets and 2030 Food Waste Targets now is the time to rethink and redesign food and beverage packaging. This session will cover innovation and design thinking, how to embed circular design practices into your NPD processes and to better understand what innovations are standing out on shelf in the region. Design innovation not only helps you to stay ahead of your competitors and resonate with consumers; in many cases these innovative and intuitive packs are also more sustainable and offer a much lower environmental impact to previous designs. This session will also showcase award-winning packaging designs that have been recognised locally and globally for standing out. Many of these designs also offer significant shifts in materials, reductions in environmental impacts, are light weighted, include recycled content, are refillable and reusable and more. Come and see what the future of food and beverage packaging looks like.
