"A DYNAMIC ASSOCIATION THAT TRULY SERVES ITS MEMBERS, INDUSTRY AND THE PUBLIC"
* Dick Searle, Chief Executive Officer, The Packaging Federation
The Foodservice Packaging Association promotes the interests of manufacturers, distributors and buyers of single use, disposable foodservice packaging used to serve food and beverages to the public away from home. The FPA encourages the use of disposable foodservice packaging by promoting and encouraging further development of its superior performance with respect to hygiene, safety, convenience, economy, reducing food waste, environment and sustainability.
We encourage the best practise and set the highest standards to our members with regard to serving the public at large and each other. We enhance the reputation and understanding of the foodservice packaging industry by providing information to legislators, industry, pressure groups and media. We lobby government so that decisions affecting our industry are made from an informed position and that the role of the foodservice packaging industry in minimising food waste is fully understood as is its significant contribution to the UK economy.
