Representatives of the German and French Plastics Packaging Associations met in Paris on April 19, 2011. Both Association’s Presidents, Roland Roth of the German Plastics Packaging Association IK, Bad Homburg, Germany, and CEO of RKW SE and Dominique-Paul Vallée of the French Plastics and Flexible Packaging Association Elipso and CEO & Managing Director of Bericap France discussed the association’s current issues.

Apart from the overall economic situation, the agenda also included questions about energy efficiency, vocational and further education and the environment. But, the most essential theme of the moment concerned the raw material supply and price issues.

Over the past year, the prices of all plastics have been strongly and steadily increasing. Liquidity is a new and pressing issue that plastic packaging manufacturers have to face and, for some companies, the rising cost of feedstocks has had disastrous financial consequences.

In view of this situation ELIPSO and IK came to the conclusion that new solutions in relation to raw material supply have to be found in order to be able to manage these challenges.
