Packaging Materials Symposium 2012

Background and objectives


The ILSI Europe International Symposia on Food Packaging are held every four years and are internationally recognised as a scientific forum to discuss the science that ensures the safety and quality of food packaging. The upcoming 5th symposium will emphasise innovations in the area of food packaging. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to review and debate recent advances in the science, which supports the demonstration of the safety and quality of food packaging. The dissemination of results of on-going research will be combined with examining the implications for the future of controlling packaging for foodstuffs.
This multi-disciplinary meeting will be of interest to those active in issues associated with the safety and quality of food packaging, particularly food scientists, chemists, mathematicians, physicists, packaging specialists, control authorities, regulators and risk assessors.
