Companies prepare to launch their latest eco-friendly solutions

Research by sustainability focused media brand, edie, found that 36% of Europeans are already boycotting brands over packaging sustainability concerns. The research also found that 92% of consumers would choose a card-based packaging option over plastic packaging.

What’s more, 68% of UK shoppers also say that the environmental impact of a product’s packaging affects their purchasing choice.

In light of this surge in consumer demand, sustainability is one of the key themes of this year’s exhibition with a number of companies taking the opportunity to launch their eco-friendly solutions.

Wrapid and DuPont Tijin Films will launch its Mylar rPET lidding film range for the food sector. The range was created using a 50% post-consumer recycled content sourced from European deposit return schemes.

Camvac will showcase its new fully biodegradable and home compostable decorative metallised film, Cambrite Camvert. This is a solution to metallised polyester and is available in a range of colours with a mirror-like finish.

Preparing to present its extended Propafilm Strata range is Innovia Films. The firm’s high barrier films are certified recyclable and have been extended to include new grades.

Henry AR Alderney Race will highlight the benefits of its Stakker Roll Cradles for palletisation and its bespoke moulded fibre packaging which have been designed to provide environmental and cost-effective solutions.

Also in the field of packaging, Foxpak Flexibles will showcase its Generation Green range of compostable, recyclable and paper primary packaging solutions available in stand-up pouches, sachets, coffee pouches and three side seal bags.

Providing a solution to embossing, i2r Packaging Solutions will present its patent protected new style of embossing – i2r Ultra, which increases stress resistance to reduce the gauge, price point and environmental impact of the aluminium tray.

Paul MacDonald, global brand director of Easyfairs’ Packaging Portfolio comments: “Innovation remains at the heart of the show and there will be no shortage of new products on display on the exhibition floor.”
