Glass and soft plastic recycling steering committees for 2021-2022

The Packaging Forum held its annual general meeting on 2 September via a virtual format again this year due changes to Covid-19 Alert Levels.

24 September 2021

The AGM included updates from the Forum’s two product stewardship schemes, the Glass Packaging Forum (GPF) and Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme (SPRS) as well as electing their steering committees.

Continuity was the order of the day with the GPF only seeing two changes as outgoing Chair Karen Titulaer (Villa Maria) stepped down and Heath Bowman (Pic’s Peanut Butter) joined for the first time.

The rest of the 2020-2021 committee members are reprising their positions

  • Monique Sprosen (Pernod Ricard) – elected as the new Chair.
  • Don Chittock (Fulton Hogan)
  • Sara Tucker (Lion)
  • Penny Garland (Visy Recycling)
  • Yuri Schokking (Smart Environmental)
  • Jo Jalfon (Asahi Beverages NZ)
  • Nick Keene (Hospitality NZ)

 

The SPRS steering committee retains the steady hand of Malcolm Everts (Cottonsoft) as Chair while Steffan Pedersen (Caspak), Keri-Anne Martin (Nestle) and Michael Anderson (Goodman Fielder) reprised their roles.

They are joined by new faces:

  • Auriel Bakker (Westpac, previously represented by Josh Devoe)
  • Debra Goulding (Foodstuffs NZ)
  • Kristina Misevska (PepsiCo)
  • Mark Mills (Jenkins Fresh Produce)
  • Millie Porter (Countdown, previously represented by Charlotte Haycock)
  • Robert Lethbridge (Griffins)

A big thank you to our outgoing steering committee members and to the new members, all of whom serve on a volunteer basis.
