WELCOME TO THE MAY ISSUE OF CANMAKING NEWS
WHO KNOWS WHERE THE TIME GOES . . .?
It’s hard to believe 1 May means it’s been a whole year since we were setting up our stand at Metpack in Messe Essen, and although at the end of the show we might have muttered, ‘never again’… we’re feeling a bit nostalgic. Still, there are plenty of other trade fairs, conferences, shows and exhibitions to be getting our teeth into in the coming months. This month sees FoodTech in Barcelona, Spain; Cannex and Fillex Asia Pacific, China; BAMA’s Innovation Day at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, UK and the IMDA Conference in Illinois, US.
This month’s feature is the Preview of the IMDA which takes place in Chicago. Go to Features for a good read and we look forward to seeing you there.
In our World News section, you’ll find the bigger stories of the month, from GEW’s warning against potential patent infringements to thyssenkrupp’s new packaging steel app.
FAKE NEWS MAKES NEWS
In our News in Brief section we have an article about how flawed data can lead to media articles that have the potential to further harm the reputation of canned food.
If you have some great news about your company or your products – let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll shout it from the Canmaking News rooftops.
