The Packaging Forum brings together over 200 companies which belong to one of more of our voluntary product stewardship schemes. Each scheme is independently managed and is funded by levies. We invest over $1 million annually in projects to increase recycling and reduce litter in communities around the country.
We’re growing at a rate of around 2-3 new members every month because brands want to be part of stewardship programmes that deliver results and are prepared to pay for them. We commission research from independent consultants to provide evidence based solutions which are most cost effective for New Zealanders.
Packaging is there to protect and preserve products and extend shelf life. We don’t promote packaging but see it as an integral part of the product presentation. Our focus is to help find end of life solutions for packaging.
