Thin Wall Packaging

International conference on market trends and developments in plastics tubs, cups and tray packaging

4-6 December 2017 Maritim Hotel, Cologne, Germany




AMI’s 12th Thin Wall Packaging conference will take place from 4-6 December 2017 in Cologne, Germany.

The conference looks at storage and functionality of plastics materials in protecting and preserving items such as meat, yoghurt, margarine, fruit and vegetables, dairy, sh, soup, and ready meals.

This year’s programme looks at innovations in material science, juxtaposing traditional and new materials used for thin wall packaging conversion as well as the latest developments in technology, improving sustainability and the latest in decoration technology.

The TWP industry continues to answer market demand for added- value packaging for long- life applications. Packaging suppliers and end- users are presented with a range of barrier technologies to suit their operational needs.

Ready meals are a segment of high growth, which triggers innovation in the use of microwave technologies. Microwave pasteurisation, sterilisation and shielding are new concepts that will affect the demand for TWP in the future. Single serve capsules are also a segment of high growth, which triggers innovation that will affect the TWP industry in the future.

Thin Wall Packaging 2017 offers a meeting point for the industry to debate business trends and provides a unique opportunity to network with all levels of the supply chain.
