Pre-assembled packaging has a lot of merits, but is it time for it to move over and make way for self-assembly packaging that can be put shipped in compact form and put together at point of dispatch?
We have many environmental issues to face up to as we move into 2019; plastic in our oceans, raising further awareness of correct recycling practices for recyclable materials, reducing the amount of waste we as a nation put into landfill, and now also the fact that gel polymer is looking set to become the new “fat cake” in our sewers.
We’ve seen the word “biodegradable” popping up a lot of late! It sounds good, but it is really just a better way of saying “still goes to landfill”. “Recycling” continues to be the new buzzword across the UK and here at Hydropac we’re making sure we push this ethos moving forward!
Here at Hydropac we supply both compact packaging that you assemble upon receipt/requirement (such as our Reflective Air Bags ) and rigid, pre-assembled packaging (such as our Polystyrene Boxes ) – there are pros and cons to both, but self-assembly packaging is certainly leading the game of late!
There are many well known food brands that we recognise purely on the strength of their logo and packaging; knowing the brand and being attracted by the packaging make half the battle in persuading a consumer to pick your product off the shelf, so it’s key to consider this when looking to design new packaging.
Come and see us at Foodex 2018 on Stand E188 – we’re there 16-18 April 2018 exhibiting our temperature controlled packaging and our innovative 3D Reflective Air Bags! The show is free to enter; register online for a visitor badge today and visit us on the largest stand we’ve had to date!
