Our History

International Packaging Group, Association (IPG), is a global affiliation of folding carton and packaging producers and world-leading suppliers to the packaging industry. Members share a common purpose by meeting annually to exchange know-how on advanced technology, innovation and development, production methodology, exposure to world-class performance standards through plant visits and benchmarking among its members, and social-political understanding for success in an increasingly competitive global business community. We know of no other professional organisation that has engendered a comparable openness on a wide range of issues.
