The Special Interest Group (SIG) on Packaging met this week to discuss the Federation’s response to the Government Consultation on EPR.
The 1½ hour meeting commenced with Lee Wills of Bidfood giving the group an update on the INCPEN workshops looking at the types of material that are likely to be reported within the EPR requirements on data capture. This will be important with the introduction of modulated fees.
We then went through the questions on the EPR Consultation to agree a BFFF position. We will circulate the final document to members and would encourage everyone to submit a response to the Consultation.
We think it is important that as many companies and trade bodies response to the Consultation to ensure the voice of the industry is heard.
Please watch out for next week’s Weekly Email when we will share the proposed response.
The deadline for responses is the 4th June and can be accessed by following this link.
