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.


AIPIA now features CONTENT-ON-DEMAND. Please mail press releases, product launches, A&IP company information or developments to and it will be considered for inclusion on this website and may feature in our Monthly Newsletter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It seems ‘Report Season’ is in full swing, just like tennis! So we have included a brief round-up of the latest good news about Active & Intelligent Packaging forecasts. Plus there is the usual crop of excellent new products and ideas from the world of A&IP, which only re-enforces the things they are saying in the Reports! And our list of speakers for the next Congress (18th and 19th November in Utrecht) is growing, more information in the next issue. So Watch This Space!
