Welcome to our annual top 50 food packaging companies cover story. As explained further in the methodology box that correlates with the Top 50 Food Packagers chart on page 22, Food and Beverage Packaging has ranked the top food companies based on 2012 total revenues. As in the past, we organize the top 50 in ranking order by revenue (billions) and include chief packaging officer and key brands. We have broken out revenue from beverage and other non-food product sales, when possible, so that we only include revenue from packaged food sales.
In this issue of Packaging Strategies, we take a look at the packaging robotics industry, learn about some of the latest products to be featured at PACK EXPO LV, sustainability innovation, and much more!
