 EFIA has announced the details of the next Sustainability Breakfast Meeting. 

Taking place on 7th February at the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Coventry, the next Breakfast Meeting continues our drive to unite the wider flexo supply chain under the principles of 'Educate, Innovate, Collaborate, and Legislate’, headlines identified by EFIA members at the initial sustainability meeting, as the key lynchpins of industry progress. 

As the topic of sustainability continues to dominate the news agenda, EFIA has begun to host Breakfast Meetings that break the complex topic down into smaller, more focussed themes, that connect directly with the needs of the flexographic printing industry. The event will once again involve a panel of speakers that represent the broad spectrumof the packaging, print and recycling supply chain to debate and determine a strategy for the sector.

Following the success of the first two events, the third breakfast meeting will hone in on how the flexo industry can harness innovation to boost sustainability performance. The event is set to open dialogue on the technology, workflow, operational and marketing innovations that will help the industry meet the sustainability goals and challenges presented by brands and consumers alike, particularly in today’s turbulent legislative environment.

Debbie Waldron-Hoines, Consultant CEO of EFIA, commented: “We are once again delighted to host businesses from across the flexographic supply chain at our Sustainability Breakfast Meeting. Our drive and passion to unite the industry has so far brought extremely valuable discussion to the table; every business has its own unique commercial setup and viewpoint. Our events pool the vast knowledge and perspectives we have in the sector for the overallbetterment of the industry.

“The core theme of innovation is so crucial to the future of flexo. Businesses live and die by their efficiencies, which means that technology and operational workflows need to incorporate new capabilities and ways of working. We look forward to another round of discussion that highlights how our industry is innovating right now, as well as in to the future.”

The Sustainability Breakfast Meeting is free to attend for EFIA members and just £10 for non-members. To book a place, please contact EFIA on admin@efia.uk.com
