Current Environmental Law Developments and Food and Beverage Packaging
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 30, 2008
Sustainability is grabbing the headlines, but other regulatory developments on the environmental front are also affecting the business decisions of today's food and beverage packagers. Packaging Law Forum (http://www.packaginglawforum.com), scheduled for June 17, at the Gleacher Center in Chicago, will address sustainability programs, as well as other key environmental packaging developments of importance to brand owners. "Current Environmental Law Developments and Food and Beverage Packaging," is one of eight topics to be covered at this first-time forum, produced by Summit Publishing Company's Packaging World magazine.
This session will be presented by Victor Bell, President of Environmental Packaging International (EPI), a consultancy specializing in global environmental packaging and product stewardship requirements. EPI has provided assistance to well known companies such as The Estée Lauder Companies, Costco, Johnson & Johnson, Mattel, MeadWestvaco, Microsoft Corporation, Nike, Pitney Bowes Inc., Starbucks and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company.
Bell is a Certified Packaging Professional with over 20 years experience working with environmental issues associated with packaging and products and has also served on the Executive Committee of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. His presentation will include discussion of the new regulator of the day - Wal-Mart and other retailers; Heavy Metal, Forest, RPPC and other required certifications; environmental claims and the new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines; and chain of custody issues.
