Packaging

Packaging plays a vital role in the food and beverage industry in ensuring products reach end consumers efficiently, safely and in a sustainable manner. It is used at every stage of the supply chain to transport goods through one process to another.

In recent months, the amount of packaging news across the world has grown as the sector seeks to innovate new solutions to packaging pollution. We hope to increase our ability to work in recyclable packaging over the coming years.
