Federation of National, Regional Packaging Institutes, Corporations and Trade Associations


The World Packaging Organisation is a not for profit, non-governmental, international federation of national packaging institutes, regional packaging federations and other interested parties including individuals, corporations and trade associations.

Founded September 6, 1968 in Tokyo by visionary leaders from the global packaging community, the purposes of the organisation include to

  • Encourage the development of packaging technology, science, access and engineering;
  • Contribute to the development of international trade; and
  • Stimulate education and training in packaging.

Primary activities of the organisation today are to promote education through meetings, special activities and publications, including this web site; to sponsor an international packaging design awards program; and to facilitate contact and exchange among the various national institutes of packaging.

Annual dues are €300 and may be offset in whole or part by several methods.

Full Members participate in the governance of the organization as members by designating a representative to the Board of Directors.

Affiliate Membership
