We love what we do

IPPO is a professional group of individual editors, journalists and writers from around the world who cover packaging and the packaging industry from various perspectives.

IPPO is also a friendly, independent, not-for-profit society of colleagues who support each other – and share a passion for packaging.

Founded in 1974, IPPO is truly an international organisation, with members in more than 30 countries. All IPPO members are peer–reviewed and accepted based on individual qualities and abilities – not on the reputations of the companies or publications for which they work.

Why Work With IPPO

IPPO actively works with packaging industry associations, event organisers and companies on sponsored trips and educational opportunities.

IPPO has conducted many mutually beneficial partnerships with event organisers over the years, which has seen our members visit shows in countries including the USA, Japan, Italy and France, as well as IPPO-centric missions to production plants and events in places such as Sweden and France.

In an increasingly global packaging industry, IPPO is keen to work with new partners to open the door to its members to access new markets.
