Vice President Education : Henky WibawaHenky Wibawa serves as Indonesian Packaging Consultant and Executive Director of Indonesian Packaging Federation based in Jakarta.

Then since beginning Year 2014 actively through his various engagements with the government, academia and industry, he sees many challenges and opportunities for the packaging industry. As Asia-Pacific and particularly Indonesian consumer goods are growing, and focusing on packed foods that are healthy, natural, and produced sustainably, packaging manufacturers need to innovate new materials, processes and business models very quickly to fulfil these demands. This also implies that the stakeholders need to ensure that the whole value chain, from the farms to consumer is creating less carbon footprint. The rise of digital technologies and artificial intelligence is allowing technology companies and entrepreneurs to disrupt the way FMCG manufacturers operate and engage with consumers, which forces packaging companies to innovate faster.
