Jeremy Paxman, broadcaster, author and campaigner, is to speak at the annual Foodservice Packaging Association Environment seminar on 21 January 2016 at the St John’s Hotel, Solihull. Jeremy will be speaking in his capacity as Patron of Clean Up Britain, the major campaign organisation set up to highlight litter issues and help turn around UK attitudes to litter.The FPA Environment seminar regularly attracts some 150 FPA members and a broad spectrum of representatives from local authorities, trade associations, major foodservice operators, environmental and recycling organisations. The debates held have had a positive effect on influencing litter and recycling agendas.


Jeremy Paxman has a passion for dealing with the UK’s litter problem and believes that in order to make progress the various litter agencies need to work together in order to achieve meaningful, long-lasting results.

Anne Sutton, Chairman of the FPA Environment Committee said: “We are delighted that Jeremy is taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to FPA members.   We know that he is rarely able to take on a commitment like this which makes it all the more special for the FPA.”
