Presentation of food packaging prototypes

20 October 2020

The course Packaging Technology and Development marks the start for the FIPDes students’ education at Lund University. From many aspects this course is the basis for their second-year journey within the specialisation Food Packaging Design and Logistics.
The course is based on a packaging development project with industry in peer groups with students from various study programmes. Thus, the participating FIPDes students work together with a mix of Swedish and international exchange students.
During the final presentation on 20 October, theFIPDes students were very happy to present their food packaging prototypes!
