This talk examines the importance of packaging to brand owners, retailers and consumers, and its significance in the context of an increasingly eco-aware society.

The way in which packaging and society have evolved and influenced each other over the last half century will be discussed, and the achievements of packaging will be highlighted. It makes a huge contribution to the feasibility of contemporary supply chains, and plays a key role in optimising resource efficiency. However, public perceptions of packaging would often indicate a different story: where does the truth lie?

This talk is part of the ELCF - Engineering for a Low Carbon Future (seminar series) series.
