Packaging & Processing Hall of Fame

PMMI honors industry professionals via the Packaging & Processing Hall of Fame.

The Packaging & Processing Hall of Fame recognizes career packaging and processing professionals for their significant contributions to the industry and education. The honor, which PMMI coordinates, had been awarded annually from 1971 until 2014. A new class was inducted during PACK EXPO International 2018 in Chicago and future classes will be inducted every other year at PACK EXPO International. Nominations for the Class of 2020 will be accepted in early 2020.

The Packaging & Processing Hall of Fame is the top honor a packaging or processing professional can receive in his or her career. Past inductees are packaging leaders who have dedicated themselves to the industry through expanding knowledge and volunteer leadership, and have personally advanced the field of packaging. A Packaging & Processing Hall of Fame commission evaluates nominations and chooses the coming year's class. The commission is made up of a cross-section of industry professionals, including suppliers, journalists and end users.

Meet the 2018 inductees:

Timothy Bohrer is a 45-year packaging industry veteran with 15 issued patents and many innovations including metallized film susceptor packaging for microwave popcorn.

Keith Pearson has dedicated his life to packaging in Africa and served more than 15 years in the leadership of the World Packaging Organisation.

Susan Selke, the current director of the Michigan State University School of Pack-aging, has spent 35 years as a packaging educator and authored several textbooks.

Chuck Yuska served as president and CEO of PMMI for nearly 30 years. During that time membership nearly tripled and the trade show portfolio grew from one to six shows.
