Rebecca Turner, European marketing manager at Graphic Packaging International said: “At the moment, sustainability and plastic-reducing packaging solutions are hot topics for brands. Graphic Packaging prides itself on delivering lightweight, efficient and fully-recyclable designs. Since the airing of the BBC’s Blue Planet II series over the past 18 months, the trend toward recyclability has gained momentum and placed increased emphasis on the sustainability benefits of our product ranges.
“Packaging Innovations 2019 is a great opportunity for us to show our customers Graphic Packaging’s innovative design capabilities to meet evolving consumer needs. We will be showcasing new plastic-reducing designs and sharing case studies of customer successes based on our market-leading technology developments.

Proprietary microwave technology is incorporated and customised for each product application created, including trays and bowls, cartons, discs and sleeves, as well as innovative hybrid applications.
