& Associations


The SVI stands for holistic packaging thinking. We are the packaging-neutral association of the Swiss packaging industry. We represent and promote the interests of all companies involved in the life cycle of packaging – from production and filling processes to recycling. In this way, we support the further development of the entire packaging sector from a functional, ecological and economic point of view and demonstrate the innovative capacity of the industry. The SVI puts its members at the centre. We offer comprehensive information and advice in all industry-specific matters – competent and up-to-date. In addition, we create networking platforms and promote encounters and cooperation among our members. This makes us a strong partner and service provider for the packaging industry. The SVI trains packaging specialists. We are the leading partner for in-service training and further education in the packaging industry. Our training programme is level-appropriate, practice-oriented and comprehensive. Our graduates occupy important key positions and are thus a success factor for the competitiveness of the Swiss packaging industry.  

Philippe Dubois, Präsident SVI

“The companies in the packaging industry are increasingly facing international competition for products and services. From my point of view, this fair offers the Swiss packaging industry the ideal setting to showcase their innovations, cultivate existing contacts and forge new partnerships on a national level. For a comparatively cost-intensive country like Switzerland, success depends to a large extent on the innovative strength and quality of its products, as well as on the know-how of its employees. As the umbrella organisation of the Swiss packaging industry, we will be looking specifically for exchanges with industry members at the fair, soliciting new members and presenting our broad programme of continuing education. With a two-day lecture programme, we also want to be a platform for mutual exchange and important professional input.”  

Andreas Zopfi, Geschäftsführer SVI

«Trotz globalisierten Beschaffungs- und Absatzmärkten stehen wir zu unserem Binnenmarkt und können an einer schweizerischen Messe Jahr für Jahr den Entscheidungsträgern die grosse Innovationskraft der schweizerischen Verpackungswirtschaft präsentieren. Klar, an internationalen Messen ist die Konzentration von potentiellen Kunden höher, die Anzahl der Mitbewerber jedoch auch. Es stellt sich die Frage, erreiche ich an internationalen Messen die Entscheidungsträger für die für unsere Industrie wichtigen Absatzmärkte in der Schweiz? Erreiche ich die für meine Zukunft wichtigen Fachkräfte? Wir produzieren mehrheitlich in der Schweiz und rekrutieren auch unser Fachpersonal aus der Schweiz. Für das SVI ist die Partnerschaft mit der Messeorganisation der EMPACK eine strategische Partnerschaft. Wir bekennen uns zu dem Messestandort Schweiz und somit auch zu einer eigenen Verpackungsmesse.»
