A new year and many challenges. Do visit easiFair at the NEC (26/27 Feb) and come along to the Packaging Society stand. I would be pleased to meet fellow packaging devotees, and of course we will be running the popular ‘Packaging Clinic’ In general terms let me look at waste and packaging, a popular subject, and one that needs a better central coordinated approach. Watch this space as my activities here develop.I was intrigued by a piece on the One Show a few days ago showing a newly developed nanofibre paper with the strength possibly of steel. Watch this space as I follow up on this. More later.
