The College of Food Agriculture and Rural Enterprise is delivering Sustainable Food Packaging Courses

April 22, 2021

The Packaging Centre at the College of Food Agriculture and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) is delivering Packaging Industry Awarding Body Company (PiABC) accredited courses.

CAFRE has delivered packaging courses for the last 20 years and is currently the only PiABC approved centre on the island of Ireland.

One of the packaging courses available at CAFRE is the new Level 2 Award in Sustainable Packaging Technology.  This sustainable packaging programme is unique as it is tailored by the Packaging Technology team at CAFRE to individual company and learner needs.

Fifteen of the management team from Tayto Snacks recently commenced this unique sustainable learning programme with CAFRE. The course is being delivered on-line and upon successful completion, each of the attending managers will be awarded an Level 2 Award in Sustainable Packaging Technology.

Lynda Corcoran, New Product Development Manager at Tayto Snacks said:
“Tayto Snacks is Ireland’s leading Snacks manufacturer and home to many iconic Irish brands. We passionately support a sustainable management programme and the CAFRE’s Level 2 Award in Sustainable Packaging Technology is very relevant for our team.“
