The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) has just announced that it will host an industry meeting for the packaging industry, suppliers and retailers to address the negative perceptions of plastic products. The meeting — entitled “Plastics Packaging Under Attack” — will take place in Toronto on June 23.

“Plastic packaging is under attack in Canada and the critics are gaining ground,” the CPIA said in a message today. “Public opinion is increasingly anti-plastic. Government and consumers are acting; consumer product companies and retailers are under pressure.”

The June 23 event will begin with opening comments from Glen Armstrong of Brampton, Ont.-based thermoformer Par-Pak, Inc., as well as context from CPIA VP of environment and health Cathy Cirko. Attendees will then hear about the Packaging Campaign Program Plan, delivered by the president and vice president of PR POST.

The presentation will be followed by a forum for feedback, and information about funding and the next steps necessary to move the campaign along.
