Open Forum Webinar:  Clean Ingredients & Purposeful Brands Set the Stage for Clean & Purposeful Packaging 

October 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, EST

The EcoFocus ten-year sustainability trends study identifies the next generation of clean as the marriage of health and environmental responsibility.  Healthy, clean and sustainable ingredients are triangulating as shoppers, especially Millennials, seek greater transparency from beverage and food companies.  This means they want brands to think about and take a stand on packaging that aligns with healthy ingredients and purposeful brand equities. Find out where consumers are now and where they are headed in their thinking about clean and purposeful packaging.  Learn about opportunities for aligning purpose and packaging to ingredients, from clean label/clean package, to plant-based ingredients/plant-based packaging, and more.  Presented by Linda Gilbert, founder and CEO, EcoFocus Worldwide and founder and former President, HealthFocus International.  Register at:

Winning Brands Deliver Authentic Experience From Ingredients to Packaging

Authentic brands establish trust with consumers by holding true to core values and doing what they say they are going to do. Today’s consumers want an authentic experience with foods or beverages offering fresh, high-quality, natural ingredients;  “clean” processing; “clean” packaging; and product assurance (certifications).  How are consumers integrating lifestyle values with their food and beverage decisions?
