During PACKEXPO International (Oct 23-26), in Chicago, President of the WPO (World Packaging Organisation), Pierre Pienaar (pictured left), will be inducted into the Hall of Fame Class of 2022.
Since 1971, the Packaging & Processing Hall of Fame has recognised career packaging and processing professionals for their significant contributions to the industry and education. Besides Pienaar, this year’s honourees are Jean-Jacques Graffin, Rebecca Oesterle, and E. Jeffrey Rhodehamel.
As described by PMMI (The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies), the Hall of Fame organiser, “Pierre Pienaar has become one of the most prolific and recognisable packaging educators in the world. President of the World Packaging Organisation, his passion is educating the world about packaging, the science of packaging, and the need to properly recycle. In addition to running a packaging consultancy in Australia, Pienaar lectures students in Food Innovation and Packaging at universities around the world.”
