Global Midwest Alliance invites you to its first program in the Alliance's 2019 Innovation, Growth and Globalization Industry-Focused Series. Past food industry programs have focused on food safety and policy changes, science-based opportunities, global food production and sustainability, food supply chain management, reducing food waste and expanding food trade.
Food packaging has become a vital source of reinvigoration for a stable, yet evolving sector. The food industry is undergoing rapid changes as new products and categories are developed for consumers demanding fresher and tastier options. Packaging provides a valuable link between those producing and those consuming food products. Businesses can leverage packaging innovations to create value, develop new markets and foster employment. Moreover, important issues related to food safety, distribution and trade revolve around innovative packaging techniques and equipment.
Global Midwest Alliance will explore these themes during a lively and though-provoking morning seminar at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The program will feature a distinguished keynote speaker with expertise in packaging innovations and two panel discussions with informative speakers from across the supply chain, along with ample time for networking. The Innovation Panel will discuss packaging innovations and technology as drivers of change in the food sector. The Growth and Global Opportunities Panel will delve into opportunities for businesses to expand globally, particularly through gaining a competitive edge from better food packaging.
The cost to attend this industry breakfast program is $95 per person, payable at the time of registration.
