Be sure to check out the recap of the 2022 FRESH Summit

FRESH is pleased to provide a program that reflects its unique approach to ensuring the safety, security and 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.

“The Sonoco Fresh Summit provided an amazing opportunity to discuss collaboration and innovation with other members of the industry and academia. Next generation solutions will not happen within a bubble, and the Summit allowed attendees to learn the needs of other members of the food value chain. I found last years event to be full of opportunities for networking with decisions makers that can really help drive innovation and sustainable solutions.”
