The Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) has launched a streamlined, more user-friendly website designed to be a better communication tool for members of the printing and packaging industries.
The homepage of the website – www.flexpack.org – offers an “FPA Spotlight” section that highlights the Market Tracker, the State of the Flexible Packaging Industry Report, the Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition, Upcoming Events, Advocacy, and recent publications.
Many of the resources contained in the website are for FPA members only and require a login. When FPA members log into the new site for the first time, they will be required to reset their password.
The “Industry Information” section includes business statistics and financial benchmarking reports, such as the State of the Flexible Packaging Industry Report and the quarterly “Pulse of the Industry” Reports under industry resources. This section features the advantages of flexible packaging, the market tracker, an industry overview and industry facts and figures. The section also contains the pressroom which offers a variety of news and information tools to keep members up-to-date.
The “Programs” section highlights key association programs such as the Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition, the Flexible Packaging Student Design Challenge, Human Resources, and the Sterilization Packaging Manufacturers Council. The ‘Programs’ section also highlights FPA market research and outreach materials that we encourage members to use and share with colleagues, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders.
Headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, the FPA advocates on behalf of the flexible packaging industry and advocacy priorities include ensuring that the flexible packaging industry is represented in legislative and NGO discussions on solid waste management, material composition transparency, sustainability, the role of packaging in reducing food waste, and food safety issues. The new “Advocacy” section highlights FPA efforts to ensure reasonable government legislation and regulations around environmental, health, and safety concerns; water and waste regulations; and occupational safety and health rules.
