ProSweets 2022: Guided Tours – Sustainable packaging concepts for Sweets & Snacks


Innovative packaging design

As part of the special show "Packaging - Function meets Design", guided tours will be offered on the topic of "Sustainable Packaging Concepts". The tours will lead through the special show as well as to exhibitors offering interesting contributions or projects on this topic.

New perspective: Sustainability first

From an ecological point of view, it is crucial that food packaging offers the best possible product protection. In addition, sustainability and ecology are playing an increasingly important role in our society. Sustainability has also become a purchasing criterion for many consumers.

  • But how can food and beverages be packaged in an environmentally friendly and ecological way?
  • What sustainable packaging concepts are currently available for sweets and snacks?
  • What technological innovations are there?
  • And which ones have already proven themselves in practice? Where are the limits?

Answers to these and other important questions can be found at ProSweets 2022.
