Commenting on the event, Christina Senn-Jakobsen, chief executive officer of Swiss Food & Nutrition Valley, says, "This event showcased the incredible potential of collaborative innovation.

Today’s event highlights the vital importance of R&D collaboration across the ecosystem to accelerate the development and implementation of new solutions.”

Gustavo Barros, director of R&D Partnerships at Tetra Pak, adds, "Collaboration with our customers, suppliers and industry stakeholders has been central to our sustainability journey. Our dedication to sustainability constantly drives us to explore new materials and technologies. Today, we’ve connected with several innovators whose research can help us take another step forward. We look forward to continuing these conversations."

The Swiss Food & Nutrition Valley team will publish a report summarizing the key insights and learnings from the event to be made public.
