The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) today released its slate of packaging sessions as part of the PROCESS EXPO UNIVERSITY educational program taking place at Chicago's McCormick Place from September 15-18, 2015.

“We are excited to have the most respected academics from the packaging industry speaking at PROCESS EXPO this year," said Gil Williams, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Poly-clip System USA and Canada. “Show attendees know that we provide the highest level of educational sessions and do not merely provide a stage for vendors to promote their equipment. The results speak for themselves as the packaging sessions within the educational program have proven to be among the most highly attended at PROCESS EXPO.”

  • Advancements in Aseptic Processing and Packaging
