PACKWINE Forum & Expo will consider re-thinking re-use

Most people will be familiar with the phrase; “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”. But perhaps it’s time to broaden the industry thinking about re-use.

Understanding the lifespan of waste and where it goes is key to exploring how a business can improve its suitability credentials and lower its footprint.

Ralph Moyle FAIP, CPP, is an experienced food-packaging consultant with 40 years in the food processing industry and 25 years focused on packaging.

At PACKWINE he will discuss how businesses can be more mindful of where their waste goes and how it can be properly managed.

“If you are looking to lower your environmental impacts for your packaging and are thinking about moving to more sustainable alternatives then understanding the waste hierarchy and how it can work for your business is paramount,” he said.

“This session will discuss Rethinking, Redesigning, Reducing, Reusing and Recycling and will help you to design out waste at the start and ensure that the packaging you put out into the market is capable of being collected, sorted, recovered, and recycled.”

Moyle’s packaging knowledge has resulted in successful contemporary designs and material selections, improved shelf life, lower material costs, shorter supply chains and environmentally friendly selections that have provided greater economic value.

Ralph is a past National President of the AIP, a Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) and a Fellow of the AIP. He was also recently awarded the World Packaging Organisation Lifetime Achievement Award and the AIP Founders Award for his significant contribution to packaging education and training in Australasia.

PACKWINE is now in its second year and is shining a spotlight on how change can be brought into the wine packaging industry through a print and digital forum as well as a trade exhibition, allowing leading suppliers to display their products and services. Design awards will also highlight the year’s best wine packaging.

PACKWINE will feature a number of industry leaders as part of its webinar component, including Neil Scrimgeour, business development manager of Affinity Labs; Paul Baggio, managing director of Della Toffola Pacific; and Rowena Curlewis, CEO of Denomination.

The PACKWINE Forum & Expo will be published in the September 2022 issue of the Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker, the wine industry’s leading publication, while digital content will also be published online.
