Building on the introductory workshop, the second stage of the program includes one-on-one virtual consultations. Participants will be asked to complete a pre-consultation questionnaire and provide additional information via video to support these consultations.
Following completion of the second workshop, consultation and site visits, participants will be given access to FIAL's online portal, the Food Matrix, providing you with access to packaging experts who can help you with the next steps and answer your questions about the next steps in your sustainable packaging strategy. Access to this support will be available until 30 November 2020.
