If you were among the several hundred packaging professionals that attended the 2018 Global Pouch Forum last June 13-15 in Miami, then you know that one of the big show themes had to do with flexible packaging sustainability and recyclability. Several presenters discussed developments aimed at tackling plastic waste and several more offered up additional solutions. Of course, presenters were also quick to point out the existing sustainability benefits of flexible packaging, such as fighting food waste and the front-end supply chain benefits involved with the packaging format. (If you missed the Forum or just want to revisit a few of these presentations, visit the “Broadcast Live” page over at www.globalpouchforum.com.)
This story is a nice complement to the main theme of flexible packaging sustainability to come out of this year’s Global Pouch Forum. Read on to see some of the latest innovations and products that several companies and converters have released pertaining to flexible packaging sustainability.
