The Packaging Materials activities within the Materials Community are aimed at providing technology support to UK packaging producers and users to meet the challenges they face through ever increasing demands of legislation and consumer sophistication.

The packaging community served by the Materials Community is made up of a network of companies, other organisations and individuals delivering materials and services to the production of packaging, the production itself, the use of the packaging in packaging processes and the delivery of the final packaged product to the consumer by appropriate brand owners, retail channels and delivery companies.
