The 2018 annual Food Packaging Forum (FPF) Workshop features high profile speakers and offers an ideal platform for exchanging views with different stakeholders in the field of food contact materials (FCMs). Register now for this one-of-a-kind event in the FCMs world to learn about recent developments in science, business, advocacy, and regulation! As in previous years, the 6th edition of the FPF Workshop also presents an excellent opportunity for networking. Please register before September 27, 2018 – spaces are limited. If you have any questions regarding the FPF Workshop, do not hesitate to contact us at events@fp-forum.org.

The FPF will also provide access to a live webcast of this year’s workshop for a minimal registration fee. Participants who cannot attend the workshop in person, thus still have the opportunity to follow the speaker presentations, Q&As, and the podium discussion.
