FRESH Summit

FRESH is pleased to provide a program that reflects its holistic approach to the sustainability of food and packaging throughout the value chain. Rich with content from respected thought leaders in industry and academia, the Summit provides the framework for exploring collaborations, solutions and innovative thinking through presentations and events.

“Participating in last year’s Sonoco FRESH Summit at Clemson University was such an enriching experience for me.  Because of all the many meaningful opportunities to learn and interact with so many inspirational and innovative thought leaders, visionaries, and entrepreneurs, I would definitely recommend attending the 2023 FRESH Summit to anyone involved in the sustainable food and packaging space. If you’re passionate about learning more how you can help your business prosper and preserve the environment, too, then the FRESH Summit is the right place for you!”
