Come join us at the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Packaging Materials Committee’s (FDCPMC) Food Packaging Summit on June 8-9. The agenda will include topics of sustainability, safety, and policy as they apply to food packaging and the broader plastic materials.

With the addition of Elena Mantagaris, Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC), Tom Neltner, Environmental Defense Fund, Joseph Schwarcz, McGill University, and more seasoned experts from FDA and beyond, attendees will learn about the most prevalent issues from a variety of perspectives.
