Food packaging serves multiple purposes; its primary function is to ensure the products' safety but also to provide essential information about the product. With food safety in mind, most food packaging is designed to be single-use. However, the improper disposal of packaging and the lack of disposal instructions has had a serious negative impact on the planet. Around the world, governments and the food & beverage industry are working together to correct this by using recyclable packaging materials and improving recycling instructions for consumers.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • The drivers for new recycling logos and regulatory changes
  • The emergence of new recycling logos and waste disposal labelling in France
  • The divergences and the impact for Food Business Operators across the EU
  • The need for awareness of national authorities’ intentions to promote cross-border sales and harmonisation
