FEVE – the European Container Glass Federation – has elected its executive team for the 2021-2023 term of office at its Annual General Assembly last Friday 18th June.
Vitaliano Torno, O-I Glass President Business Operations & O-I Europe – one of Europe’s leading glass packaging manufacturers for the food and beverage sector – has been elected President of the EU container glass federation. “We have the privilege to work with a material that has unique inherent sustainability benefits: it is endlessly recyclable and ensures quality and safety no matter how many times it is recycled. Glass is virtually inert and preserves the taste of the foods and beverages it protects. It adds prestige and the premium look and feel that supports our customers in nurturing their brands. And we are working towards glass as a climate neutral and fully circular packaging,” commented Vitaliano Torno. He succeeds Michel Giannuzzi, CEO of Verallia, who led the association for the previous two years.
The FEVE members also elected Martin Petersson, CEO Ardagh Glass Packaging – Europe, as Vice-President. “This is an exciting time for the glass industry as we undertake one of the most important transitions to secure our future: the path to decarbonising glass packaging. I am looking forward to supporting Vitaliano and the sector over the next two years in the drive to address climate change and the sustainability agenda,” added Martin Petersson.
