On-line Training Course | Packaging in the Beverage Industry

Date: June 30, 2021

Start Time: 9:00 am
End Time: 1:00 pm



The new ‘Packaging in the Beverage Industry’ training course will provide the winning recipe in developing packaging to lead in the marketplace.  The two key influencing factors on product & packaging are consumer preferences which too often are being addressed through NPDs and cost pressure to manage a successful P&L.
The training course is structured to create the decision making aspects from a commercialisation process.  This course will focus on the requirements of primary, secondary and tertiary packaging, a deep dive per chapter. These sections will include prototype testing regime, sustainable packaging guiding principles, QA testing details, shelf-life requirements, continuous improvement thoughts.
The role of packaging during this course is approached through an End-2-End review along the supply value chain.  Therefore, understanding manufacturing capabilities, a specific focus at the POS, packaging as the driving force in sustainability and the development of a long-term packaging strategy roadmap are the essential contents which will be addressed. External experts, graphics, literature sources & videos will be used for various chapters.


  • Getting captivated by defining packaging specifications, including filling technology, packing equipment and automated warehouse storage.
  • Learning the basic requirements on primary, secondary and tertiary packaging.
  • Understanding the unique landscape of the beverage industry.
  • Adopting an End-2-End approach in value stream mapping from raw material supplier to customer and consumer.
  • Seeing how cost out and managing P&Ls converts into getting a green thumb and driving sustainability goals.
  • Becoming confident in setting a long-term packaging strategy roadmap without losing focus on short-term (quick) wins.
