Patriotic packaging is definitely the trend for 2012, but if you are looking for something a little more unusual to celebrate the seasons, Leeways Packaging Services (Stand J9) might have the answer. Leeways will be showcasing a number of new seasonal products - from their multi-cavity pumpkin cupcake pack, to their new party foods and convenience selection packs. One of their new innovative designs is the end-of-aisle pallet display tray - this unique design provides an easy, stackable, palletised solution which is extremely efficient for layout, transport and storage.
Innovia Films (Stand VG16) will be demonstrating their new compostable coffee packaging solution - 'Econic'® coffee bags. These coffee bags have been specifically developed by New Zealand converter, Convex Plastics, using Innovia Films’ compostable, cellulose-based material, NatureFlex™.
Robin Dearnley, Sales Manager for Australia and New Zealand at Innovia Films, said: “Achieving success with partners such as Convex means that our NatureFlex™ films are well positioned to provide solutions to converters and brand owners. Especially those seeking to meet consumer demand for packaging made from renewable resources.”
The next time you open a packet of cereal, build a flat pack chest of drawers or swig on a soft drink, a tiny little part of what you are doing may be all down to Beardow Adams (Stand F1). This company makes ‘hot melt adhesives’, which stick almost anything together from labels on jars and bottles, to wood panels and car trims. It develops and manufactures products specifically to meet customer needs.
Fancy something sweet? Chocart London (Stand H5) have conjured up a whole new meaning to brand communication. For the very first time, they will be exhibiting their unique and delicious concept – printing on chocolate! Using a unique and secret process, white chocolate is used to create unbelievably high-resolution and detailed photographs, illustrations and text on 70% Belgian dark chocolate.
The Sherwood Press Group (stand J5) will be demonstrating Pura®, which represents a major advance in printed-packaging technology. The Pura® brand is the Group’s sustainable packaging method that combines innovation in 2D/3D design with carbon reduction and waste minimisation in both material and processes.
Graham Garrod, Managing Director at The Sherwood Press Group, commented: “We’re continually striving to find the balance between environmentally sustainable packaging and packaging which is fit for purpose, economically viable and aesthetically pleasing. Through our Pura® packaging optimisation process we can assess, propose, re-engineer new, or existing packaging, moving away from unsustainable substrates or practices, to a more responsible end product. Combining this process with our aqueous barrier coating, specifically developed for the ‘on the go’ food packaging market, we provide our customers with a truly 'green' product.
One of the companies displaying its latest packaging innovations at the show will be Visican (Stand VG1) who have just launched a range of card and plastic containers. Innovations in their cardboard range include two-piece tubes and telescopic tubes, which are manufactured from recycled board with water based adhesives.
The two-piece tubes have a base with a protruding spigot allowing a lid to slide over creating a butt jointed container. The telescopic tubes have an inner base tube and a slightly larger diameter lid sliding over the top. These are ideal where one tube is needed to accommodate products of various lengths.
Visican have also introduced ring pull closures on both their card and plastic ranges. These containers are supplied with the ring pull seamed on to the top of the tube and a self-locking, clip-in base to close the bottom once packed. They are ideal for retail, mailing, promotion and a multitude of other applications.
Mel Crossley, Managing Director at Visican, said: “We are delighted to be attending PACKAGING INNOVATIONS London. It is several years since we exhibited, but we feel now is the right time to showcase our exciting new range”
PACKAGING INNOVATIONS London 2012 will be divided into four main areas – The Brand & Design Village, Luxury Packaging, Packaging Innovations and Contract Pack. With over 150 top companies from across the globe already signed to exhibit, it looks set to be a huge success, and promises to be a real highlight for both London and the packaging industry.
