WPO World Packaging Organisation recently launched the Thai version of the ‘Global Packaging Design for Recycling Guide’ during ProPak Asia, in Bangkok. This version is the 10th translation and is already available for free download in WPO website.
“The document is a starting point to understand best practice examples using state-of-the-art technology, to be applied and tailored to suit the recovery and recyclability capabilities and infrastructure on a regional and local level. And there would not be a better place to launch it than ProPak Asia, a trade show that is a reference to the industry,” states Pierre Pienaar, President, WPO. “An exciting future awaits for the Thai packaging professionals and everyone that is now able to reference this WPO ‘Global Packaging Design for Recycling Guide’. I am confident that this Guide will make the student’s lives easier as they work towards more sustainable packaging design and development in Thailand. I would encourage everyone in Thailand to use it and tell all of your colleagues about how they can access the guide through the World Packaging Organisation website.”
Together with Pienaar, attending the show and hosting visitors in WPO booth, were Senior Vice President Marketing and President elected, Luciana Pellegrino; Vice President Sustainability & Save Food, Nerida Kelton; Vice President Events and WorldStar Coordinator, Soha Atallah; and members from Asia, as the Thai Packaging Association, coordinated by Patra Khunawat.
“ProPak Asia was also an incredible opportunity to WPO to interact with members from the region, as well as to spread our message and have a better approach to the global packaging challenges, especially key ones related to save food, food safety, sustainability, digitalization, packaging innovation and packaging education programs,” adds Pellegrino.
