Vegware speaking at Pro2Pac on 19th March

Will you be anywhere near ExCel London on Tuesday 19th March? At 1:30pm, Our Communications Director Lucy Frankel is speaking at Pro2Pac’s Outside the Box Theatre. Entitled ‘Here today, gone in 62 days: tales from the frontier of compostable packaging’, Lucy explores where compostable packaging is the solution to quality recycling in foodservice, and where it isn’t.

Lucy Frankel, Communications Director

If you know anything about Vegware, you’ll know our catering disposables are made from renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials, and can all be commercially composted with food waste where accepted.

Since 2012 Vegware has been working closely with the UK waste sector to actively increase client access to commercial composting, including now offering its own collections – Close the Loop. Lucy’s presentation will offer insights into the successes, opportunities and challenges for compostable packaging within waste systems.

It is free to attend Pro2Pac – register here. Taking place alongside IFE (The International Food & Drink Event), Pro2Pac is the meeting place for everyone in the food & drink supply chain – an influential biennial gathering of producers, manufacturers, technologists and design specialists.

Do say hi to Lucy if you come along, and then stay on for 2:15pm to listen to Sian Sutherland from A Plastic Planet.
