Scanpack is the largest exhibition and event for the packaging industry in northern Europe.
It´s held every three years in Gothenburg, Sweden and is organized by The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre since 1964. During 4 days about 17000 business professionals from more than 30 countries gather to do business, exchange knowledge and ideas, see the latest innovations, and also expand and deepen their network.
Scanpack support Save Food by creating a forum for talks, debate, seminars and exhibitions in order to promote and give a voice to the initiative so it can spread.
The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre also works directly with these issues. For example by being a partner with the Rescue Mission in Gothenburg (Räddningsmissionen) that helps people on the fringe of society. We donate leftover food from the venues. ( In 2012, 5000 sandwiches, 7000 pastries etc.)
