In 2016 RPA reformed its committee structure with the objectives to (1) expand our impact on the reusable packaging industry, (2) strengthen member engagement, and (3) enhance membership value.  Two new committees are currently active with meetings and projects:

  • Food & Beverage

  • Operations & Logistics.  

These committees lead the execution of the RPA strategic plan and are the primary avenues for RPA members to network and collaborate for the advancement of industry objectives.

The committee objectives may involve raising awareness about reusable packaging’s advantages in targeted markets, developing standards and best practices that optimize processes, or bringing visibility to new technologies that improve supply chain performance, for example.  The committee agendas are aligned with the common business interests of RPA members.  Member participation not only expands the knowledge and expertise in support of the committee’s work, but also offers direct involvement and firsthand experience that impact the member's business.
