The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) will once again be exhibiting at this year’s Packaging Innovations show, where they will be co-exhibiting with, among others, PEFC certified packaging company, AB Group Packaging.
This year’s exhibition will be the third consecutive attendance for PEFC, which has enabled the organisation to promote sustainable sourcing to buyers, suppliers, manufacturers and designers of packaging and packaging-related materials. PEFC UK will be using the show this year to promote the benefits of responsibly-sourced packaging materials.
Ross Bradshaw, PEFC UK Chairman said, “PEFC’s last global consumer survey found that more than 80% of respondents wanted to see companies sourcing materials from well-managed forests, to use a label on product to provide them with assurances of responsible sourcing.”
PEFC will be sharing its stand again with co-sponsor AB Group Packaging, who will be exhibiting packaging solutions from their customers’ brands. AB Group Packaging is a multinational manufacturer of paper bags and flexible packaging for buyers across a broad range of market sectors, including high street retailers, promotional companies, independent stores and online and express delivery retailers. The company owns and operates four strategically located manufacturing plants in Ireland, the United States, Spain and the United Kingdom. All manufacturing sites can produce 100% recycled products, and are dual certified to both PEFC and Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification standards.
PEFC Chain of Custody certification helps packaging companies demonstrate that they are sourcing raw materials from well- managed forests. This enables them to differentiate their products in the marketplace and gain recognition for their commitment to responsible sourcing.
The Packaging Innovations show will be held at London’s Olympia on 14th-15th September.
