Found plenty of innovation and great ideas for the future, we are here with a wish list in terms of packaging machinery for our new brand and found the show brilliant

Claire Thompson, Sampling Team Lead, CRODA

It has been great to see such an array of different suppliers all under one roof. The show has been very informative, clearly laid out and we will definitely come again.

Ashley Lightfoot, Print & Artwork Technologist, Muller UK & Ireland

I was drawn to the show by the exhibitors and the heavy focus on the plastic debate. It’s been great and I have seen everyone that I wanted to see.

Ben Richardson-Hughes, New Product Development, Holland & Barrett

We come to the show every year and have found this year really interesting. There were a number of suppliers we were hoping to see and they are all here.

Louisa Lewis, Purchasing Manager, The Silver Spoon Company

I primarily came to the show to do some market research and have had some great leads. A highlight for me has to be The Big Plastics Debate.
