The European Packaging Institutes Consortium (EPIC) is the project-organisation of the national packaging institutes of Europe that cooperate on behalf of their members, from retailers to raw material manufacturers.EPIC stimulates the packaging of products creating added value in the European economy in a sustainable and responsible manner. EPIC focuses on education, innovation and the transfer of information on the creation of packaged products.

Pan-European cooperation in packaging education and information services was boosted on April 26,2002 with the formal start of the EPIC. EPIC is a consortium where European packaging institutes come together on behalf of their members to identify areas where regional or pan-European cooperation might best be initiated or concentrated for the future development of the entire packaging chain in a sustainable manner.

Every institute has a long national tradition as vibrant meeting point for all individuals and companies involved in responsible packaging.Key-factors are objectivity, responsibility and innovativeness in fulfilling their role. As associations, openness towards their members and society as a whole is also essential.

EPIC is member of the World Packaging Organization (WPO), which is a non-profit, non-governmental, international federation of national packaging institutes and associations, regional packaging federations and other interested parties including corporations and trade associations.
