Recyclable Packaging – Packaging Predictions for 2019
Recyclable packaging is the development and use of packaging which results in improved sustainability. Environmental protection has always been one of Lanker’s philosophy of packaging, and recyclable packaging is an integral part of our product development. Our factory is accredited to several widely accepted standards including BRC, ISO22000, GMP, HACCP and has also achieved U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
To successfully build their brands, most food companies know the best way to present their product is through effective packaging. Nowadays, consumers – especially the younger generations – are driving many of the changes in packaging. They see packaging as a way to find healthier food products, prevent waste and protect the environment.
Sustainability has been an issue in packaging for so long. Especially with recent calls to create a circular economy by reducing single-use plastics. Many major food brand owners, including PepsiCo, Nestle, Coca-Cola, Unilever and nearly 250 brands globally have committed to making all packaging recyclable by 2025.
A recent report predicts that demand for sustainable packaging will grow about 5.1 percent annually by 2025. These actions are likely to spur innovation among packaging suppliers. Look for suppliers to enhance processes that may make recycled plastics more usable with food products and develop new bio-polymers and cellulosic fibers that are recyclable.
Anyway flexible packaging continues to grow rapidly. Bags, pouches and wraps have so many advantages, such as shelf appeal, light weight, less material usage, ease of storage, easy opening and resealability. However, use of laminated structures inhibit recycling because the layers can’t be separated.
Advances in single-polymer packages, bio-polymers and other structural evolution will make pouches and bags even more attractive to food companies. Pouches also can be used with emerging processing technologies, such as HPP and microwave-assisted processing. A related development is the increasing need for transparency, not just in ingredients, but in the packaging, too. Consumers want to see the product itself to know what is really inside the package.
Lanker Pack has been supplying secure and reliable packaging materials for food and non-food industries since 2004. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we create a wide range of products that includes pe-made pouches (stand up pouches, flat bottom pouches, coffee pouches, side gusset pouches, retort pouches, spout pouches, shaped pouches, etc) and stock (VFFS films, Lidding Films, etc.) We have been accumulated rich experience-from raw material development right through to production and quality control, we guarantee perfection in every product.
