27 January 08:30 - 13:30Orkla Foods AB Malmö (The cool Place)

Let's talk about the future

Nowadays consumers put more pressure on brand owners than before. Transparency and security are more important than ever. At the same time retailers want packaging solutions that are adapted to consumer needs. This means that the same product may need to be packaged in different ways which create higher demands on equipment and filling lines. 

On January 27, you can take part of the latest trends in machinery, environmental technology, sustainability and design.

All you need to know

We have updated the speakers list as you can see, with Agneta Påander from Orkla and Rowan Drury from Gram in Malmö. Unfortunately Anna Fråne had to postpone her presentation to another time. 

The event will offer many opportunities for interaction and discussion, even during the presentations. Our goal  is that everyone should have the opportunity to be inspired and inspire. The day will end with a small workshop where we discuss the learnings and share our ideas. 

All information regarding our Events are in English to secure availability to all of our memebers. The Events on the other hand will be in Swedish if the audience are only Swedish, otherwise in English. 

Welcome! Sign up today!

Package-less Trends

What would the world be without packaging? And what does the consumers think about this? 

The questions are most probably wrong, as we all know this is no black nor white matter as the packages fills an important role in transporting our food and other goods. What is interesting is how new means of handling food is emerging due to sustainable and customer driven demands. 

Rowan, the founder of Gram, the packagage-free store at the Saluhall in Malmö will address these aspects and new trends. 

Rowan Drury

Rowan Drury is founder of Gram, Sweden’s first package-free grocery store opening in November at Malmö Saluhall.

Gram provides a new way to buy food. The store has no packaging, just hundreds of products from local farms and makers, as well as store-cupboard essentials from around the world. Customers can bring their own containers (jars, boxes, bags, etc.) which they first weigh, and then fill. You can buy as little or as much as you need because everything is sold loose and by weight.
