The European Paper Packaging Alliance is a non-for-profit food and foodservice packaging association. Our priorities are to find concrete solutions to increase recycling and to reduce carbon emissions of food and foodservice packaging without compromising food safety and human health protection. EPPA is committed to working with European policymakers to support.
Food packaging does much more than simply hold a product. It is a critical solution, keeping food safe and fresh, improving food quality, reducing food waste and increasing accessibility. It also informs, providing nutritional information and telling us how to safely store and prepare the food
Paper and fiber-based packaging is a natural and renewable material. EPPA members are committed to sourcing it from sustainably managed forests that play an important role in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon from the atmosphere through reforestation.
