Visit Packcontact

During this third edition of Packcontact we have an appointment with the people who experience that the new legislation and the pressure from chain partners and consumer organizations is forcing both the food and packaging industry to constantly innovate. Are you as a food company looking for solutions for your new packaging challenges?

Do you want to know everything about the most recent innovations and do you prefer to contact the providers of these developments quickly and easily?

Packcontact edition 2021, the networking event for packaging specialists and food companies, offers you the ultimate opportunity to combine it all during one of these two afternoons.

PACKCONTACT is an initiative of Packcontact, the POM West-Vlaanderen in collaboration with Pack4Food, Centexbel-VKC, Belgian Packaging Institute (BPI), Verpakking Centrum Hasselt, Alimento, Flanders' Food, Fevia, PlastiQ and TUA West. Within the operation of Fabrieken voor de Toekomst, this initiative is part of the cluster policy with which the Province of West Flanders wishes to support, strengthen and anchor the West Flemish industry.

During PACKCONTACT 2020 you can expect a mix of fascinating lectures, innovations and direct contacts with experts from the field focused on the central theme of circular packaging economics.
