This course underscores the BPF’s continued commitment to purpose-led training for those who care about creating responsible packaging solutions. Reducing the environmental impact of packaging products and maximising their recyclability has never been more important.

Graduates of this course will be able to create packaging with recycled content that can meet the needs of brands, the supporting supply chain as well as the consumer.
