The FPA promotes the responsible manufacture, sourcing, distribution, usage and disposal of food and foodservice packaging. It represents the industry with all four UK governments and engages with key government departments and committees. Foodservice packaging is under unprecedented pressure from government legislation (such as plastics tax, EPR, DRS and consistent collections) and from the impact on the industry of the coronavirus pandemic.
If packaging plays a role in your business at any point in the supply chain, as a manufacturer, distributor or foodservice/hospitality operator (front & back of house) you should join the FPA.Find out more
