The Global Pouch Forum returns to Miami in June and will be bigger and better than ever. This year’s agenda spotlights keynote speakers from two of the largest food companies in the world—General Mills and Campbell Soup.
Food is by far the largest market for flexible packaging and pouches are growing rapidly in the U.S. and throughout the world. Stand-up pouches alone are a $2 billion business in the U.S. and predicted to grow 6.5% a year to 2020, according to the Freedonia Group.
The program features a total of 15 sessions over the 1 ½ day conference, including snack, produce, dairy and pet food makers. Suppliers will be well-represented in sessions about machinery and value-added features.
In addition TAPPI PLACE is co-locating once again with Global Pouch Forum and will hold a pre-conference workshop on stand-up pouches. TAPPI’s Stand-Up Pouch Making Workshop* will take place on June 15 from 1:00 to 5:30p.m. and provides an in-depth look into pouch-making technologies with speakers from the converting side of the industry.
The Forum provides plenty of networking opportunities including the June 16 exhibition and networking reception featuring more than 80 table-top exhibitors.
*The TAPPI PLACE Workshop is a separate event that requires an additional registration fee.
The future is bright for flexible packaging and pouches. Flexible packaging - worth $210 billion - now accounts for a quarter of the world’s total $800 billion market. That’s been a remarkable 30% growth in dollar terms in just five years and the forecast is for increases that will outpace many countries’ GDP.
According to leading research firm Smithers Pira, the global flexible packaging market (industrial and consumer) is expected to rise 3% a year to $248 billion by 2020. Pouches are the fastest-growing segment in flexible packaging, accounting for close to $10bn of the total.
