Fresher, Faster, Tastier: How Packaging Innovations Are Changing the Food Industry 

Global Midwest Alliance, a business-led, region-wide, not-for-profit education organization dedicated to transforming the Midwest into an internationally-recognized leader in innovation and business growth, is hosting its annual upcoming food industry program, Fresher, Faster, Tastier: How Packaging Innovations are Changing the Food Industry, on May 29 in Chicago. The program will be hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and is sponsored by Griffith Foods Worldwide, HAVI, Kerry Taste and Nutrition, and the Institute for Food Safety and Health.

Food packaging has become a vital source of reinvigoration for a stable, yet evolving sector. The food industry is undergoing rapid changes as new products and categories are developed for consumers demanding fresher and tastier options. Packaging provides a valuable link between those producing and those consuming food products. Businesses can leverage packaging innovations to create value, develop new markets and foster employment. Moreover, important issues related to food safety, distribution and trade revolve around innovative packaging techniques and equipment. 

Global Midwest Alliance will explore these themes during a lively and though-provoking morning seminar at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The program will feature a keynote speaker and two panel discussions with informative speakers from across the supply chain, along with ample time for networking. The Keynote Panel will focus on how branding and package design has changed buying habits. The Innovation Panel will discuss packaging innovations and technology as drivers of change in the food sector. The Growth and Global Opportunities Panel will delve into opportunities for businesses to expand globally, particularly through gaining a competitive edge from better food packaging.
