Now we are halfway through the year let me put the world of packaging in context. First we all are subjected by it and quite rightly as those countries without packaging technology to hand will end up wasting or damaging more products which is not good news. During July I had the privilege of coordinating a Packaging Summer School over here for 20 students from Michigan State University. This happens every year and the whole of the month is taken up with a programme of lectures and visits with all the logistics necessary. Every year and 2014 was no exception I see how excellent the packaging training is over there – 800+ on campus and a 90% success rate in finding jobs. We should be emulating this in the UK so do come back to me so that I can help move forward the training desperately needed. The Packaging Society has regular diploma courses.
