MMK on location – the most important industry events in the 1st/2nd quarters of 2018

14.06.2018 - Fairs

The Vinaria Expo and the RISI European Conference were two remarkable events that took place at the beginning of the year. They had something in common: intensive exchange and many new contacts.

VINARIA

21–25 February 2018, Plowdiw

The Vinaria, an international wine expo, opened its doors to industry in Bulgaria in February. The fair was an excellent opportunity to introduce our new liner quality for bag-in-box wine packaging to key representatives of the wine growing and producing industry: MM BiB-Liner™, a tailor-made liner, perfect

for packaging solutions containing liquid or pasty foods. MM BiB-Liner™ protects the packaged product thanks to the best BCT values (Box Compression Test) among all white top coated recycled liner qualities. The industry specialists at the fair met MM BiB-Liner™ with keen interest.

RISI EUROPEAN CONFERENCE 

5–7 March 2018, Barcelona

The annual RISI conference celebrated its 20th anniversary at the beginning of March in Barcelona under the motto “Helping the forest products industry make better decisions”. Particularly the presentations of Eliano Apicella, Barilla, and Andrea Boltho, Oxford University, drew lots of attention: Eliano Apicella determined that the topics of food safety, environmental protection, and sustainability are continuing to gain importance for consumers. Finding the right answers to societal challenges will require consistent cooperation of the supply chain partners – from brand manufacturer all the way to raw materials producer. With FOODBOARD™, a cartonboard with functional barrier for the highest product safety, MM Karton already has solutions on the

market that are being used successfully by a number of notable food producers. Andrea Boltho in his usual concise manner illuminated the current economic and political situation in Europe. China and the effects of Chinese politics were also a controversial topic during the conference as well as during breaks and evening meetings. Like every year, the conference was able to take a 360° look at the complete world of packaging and offer comprehensive impulses. Obviously, the new possibilities of fibre-based packaging were also explained, and there was much discussion about how best to replace plastics!
