PEF makes final distribution

The Packaging Education Forum announced that as part of its final distribution of funds to support packaging education, it is distributing $400ꯠ in assets to packaging programs at six universities.

The distribution of assets is part of a plan to dissolve the PEF, which its Board of Directors expects to carry out by June 30, 2004. Half of the assets will be distributed to San Jose State University for the establishment of a “Packaging Education Forum Packaging Research & Development Laboratory.” The University of Florida’s Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences will receive $100ꯠ to establish the “Packaging Education Forum’s Endowment in Packaging Science.” The Packaging Science program at Clemson University, the School of Packaging at Michigan State University, the Packaging Science Department at Rochester Institute of Technology, and the packaging program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout will each receive $25ꯠ. For more information, contact Matt Croson, the PEF director of communications, at 703/243-8555.
