Key speakers include Garry Kohl, senior director of packaging, Frito Lay; Paul Kayser, president and chief executive officer, Pretium Packaging and Betty Jean Pilon, president, Montebello Packaging.

Kohl will be discussing snack packaging sustainability imperatives in an era of advancing e-commerce ; Kayser will detail technological inroads behind the recent launch of SureHandle™, the first PET container blown with an integrated handle ; and Pilon will explain the features of new uShape custom-shaped aluminum bottle options.

Attendees will also hear about a new PET bottle recycling approach from Robert Daviduk, co-chief executive officer of rPlanet Earth. The company is planning on opening the largest PET recycling facility in California next March. This will be a departure from traditional recycling ventures since they will be producing preforms and thermoforms instead of resin.

The Packaging Conference is produced by Plastic Technologies, Inc. and SBA-CCI, Inc.
