Steady, stable, sustainable and innovative. These four words describe the paperboard packaging market today and, we forecast, for many years to come. As part of the Paperboard Packaging Council’s (PPC’s) industry data offering, we keep a pulse on economic trends that will affect the folding carton market. Following are just a few of the developments to expect in 2020.
GoGo squeeZ®, the leading brand in healthy portable fruit pouches for kids, plans to unveil 100% recyclable packaging in the market by 2022. The recyclable packaging will have no aluminum layer in the pouch.
Corrugated packaging is an increasingly noticeable part of daily life, especially in today’s new age of e-commerce. With a business philosophy dedicated to responsibility, the corrugated packaging industry’s recycling track record is miles ahead of any other packaging material.
Mondi’s four-year effort with German cleaning products maker Werner & Mertz GmbH to develop a fully recyclable, flexible stand-up pouch for W&M’s Frosch-brand laundry detergent has earned certification from two independent bodies for being 100% recyclable.
Ball Corporation has launched a pilot of infinitely recyclable aluminum cups in the U.S. and the University of Colorado Boulder will introduce the cups to fans at Folsom Field for the 2019 football season.
It’s no secret that brands, regardless of industry, are constantly exploring new ways to incorporate sustainability into their products or business models. But there are still plenty of surprises coming from consumers when it comes to buying eco-friendly products.
It is a part of our daily lives — we find what we need online, click the button and the package with whatever our heart desires arrives on the doorstep. But, the euphoria of receiving the package is somewhat diminished by knowing the negative impact that box after box and package after package can have on the environment.
In this issue of Packaging Strategies we have the annual Packaging Outlook, covering flexible and rigid plastics, glass, metal cans, paperboard and corrugated, as well as packaging machinery & automation and packaging design. Also covered is the trend of less is more in beverage branding, how dispensers can make or break a brand experience, one conveying company that’s setting the bar in vertical farming, a dairy manufacturer that moved to plant-based products and more. Enjoy!
