AIPIA IS A WORLDWIDE ASSOCIATION PROMOTING HIGH TECH PACKAGING SOLUTIONS

 

AIPIA'S MISSION IS TO DECIMATE SUPPLY CHAIN COSTS, REDUCE WASTE AND INCREASE ITS MEMBERS' PROFITABILITY BY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF HIGH TECH SOLUTIONS IN PACKAGING

We believe that active and intelligent technologies in packaging are a ‘once in a generation’  change in the sector.Not only will they alter the role of packaging in the marketplace, but also facilitate better business through premium pricing, supply chain management, improved security/brand protection and waste reduction.

To reach this goal key-players in the FOOD,  DRINK,  PHARMACEUTICAL , COSMETIC and other related industries have joined hands. Their target is extremely easy to understand: take advantage of the use of active and intelligent packaging solutions. AIPIA is the focus for information on the latest developments and knowledge exchange.
