AIPIA IS A WORLDWIDE ASSOCIATION PROMOTING HIGH TECH PACKAGING SOLUTIONS

 

AIPIA'S MISSION IS TO DECIMATE SUPPLY CHAIN COSTS, REDUCE WASTE AND INCREASE ITS MEMBERS' PROFITABILITY BY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF HIGH TECH SOLUTIONS IN PACKAGING

Their target is extremely easy to understand: take advantage of the use of active and intelligent packaging solutions.
