Aug. 20 webinar: Health & Wellness Trends—Food Packaging Implications
Have you ever wondered about packaging implications of key trends affecting food and other products? For example, more than 50 million Americans have arthritis. One in five Americans spends less than 15 minutes preparing dinner. And many millennials want to know more about how food is grown, and they view food not just as nutrition but also as entertainment and self-expression. Find out how to relate today’s food culture to tomorrow’s packaging at IoPP’s information-packed standard webinar on Aug. 20. “The Changing Face of Health & Wellness, and Implications for Packaging” will be presented by Karen Wilder, Senior Director, Scientific and Regulatory Affairs at the Schwan Food Co.
