In the UK, the food and drink industry has a turnover of £ 92 billion and the pharmaceutical industry provides 29.3 billion into the economy. Vital to these key sectors are the ability to preserve, protect, inform, transport, extend and interact with the products created. As such, investment into smart, active and intelligent packaging is of huge interest. Recently the Global market for active and intelligent packaging was forecast to climb 8 % to £ 2.3 billion in 2015.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together members of the food & drink, fmcg and pharmaceutical value chain with developers of printed electronics and sensors to learn and discuss how through the addition of smart systems into packaging, novel functionalities can be achieved and value can be added to the final product. The event is also an opportunity to showcase the innovative technologies being developed in the UK.
