112 Indian exhibitors to exhibit at 2023

Thomas Dohse, director of Interpack, said: ‘‘We are ready, all our exhibitors and partners are ready to go and we look forward to providing the industry with another great trade fair.’ Interpack is an important building block in the innovation cycle of the packaging and related process industries. After a six-year break, numerous innovations for all user areas will be on display: Food, beverages, confectionery and bakery products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods. “We noticed very clearly the great determination of the industry to actively shape this transformation process,” Dohse continued.

From 4 to 10 May, visitors can expect numerous launches in the 18 fully booked exhibition halls and solutions from the world of packaging.

A lot is happening, especially with sustainable materials and renewable raw materials. For example, bioplastics that are biodegradable or biobased, such as those made from sugar cane, palm leaves or corn, can be seen at the trade fair. Interpack will showcase sustainable processing and packaging solutions as well as digital services that help to make production processes efficient and sustainable. 

The fourth hot topic at Interpack is product safety. The industry is already making an important contribution to reducing food waste and digital technologies are a key in this regard.

The exhibition programme is complemented by numerous specials such as the Spotlight talks & trends lecture forum with seven theme days, the Interpack Start-up Zone, the Co-Packing joint booth, several award ceremonies with exciting packaging innovations, the Save Food Highlight Route with new approaches in the fight against global food loss and waste. The show also witnesses promotion of women at Women in Packaging and Late Night during the day in the Tightly Packed TV studio.
