ABI Inbev, FEVE and O-I will all form part of a packed conference schedule at Glassman Europe in Lyon in September.

Susan Hansen, a Global Strategist for F&A Supply Chains, is responsible for Rabobank’s global research portfolio and sector expertise related to food packaging and food logistics.

She will be focusing on the key drivers for packaging and how is that impacting demand for glass packaging.

The two-day conference will focus on sustainability in glassmaking on day one and the Future Glass Form on day two.

Former SABMiller Director and now Independent Consultant Richard van Breda will also be bringing his extensive experience within the packaging and beverage industry to ask whether the container glass industry aligned to its customers’ expectations.

He will be speaking alongside Global Procurement & Supply Chain FMCG Executive and Green Puffin Consulting’s Emma Bowers, who have recently teamed up for the first article on the same topic during the July/August issue of Glass International.

Glassman Europe will take place on 17th and 18th September in Halls 4&5 at the CCC, Lyon, France.
