On October 4, 2018, the Food Packaging Forum (FPF) will hold its sixth annual workshop on “Predicting the safety of food contact articles: New science and digital opportunities” in Zurich, Switzerland.

This one-day workshop features high profile speakers and offers an ideal platform for exchanging views with different stakeholders in the field of food contact materials (FCMs). Save the date for this one-of-a-kind event in the FCM world to learn about recent developments in science, business, advocacy, and regulation! As in previous years, the FPF workshop also presents an excellent opportunity for networking.

The 6th edition of the FPF Workshop is dedicated to predictive chemistry and toxicology, computational methods, and digital tools to ensure the safety of food contact articles. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Olivier Vitrac of the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), Prof. Dr. Bruce Blumberg of the University of California Irvine, U.S., Dr. Sander Koster of Nestlé, Sonja Eijpe of Viaware, and Dr. Pelle Moos of The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC).

The detailed program will be released shortly and registration will open in May 2017 – both to be available on the event website. 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, may thus still follow the speaker presentations, Q&A’s, and the podium discussion.
