Packaging is essential from transporting and storing through to the presentation and protection of goods. The packaging industry is constantly innovating from its attempts to move towards greener and more sustainable materials to improvements in shelf life.

Examples of R&D activity within the Packaging sector include:

  • Achieving the same level of performance with biodegradable materials
  • Research into heat and cold tolerances of materials and how they perform when frozen or heated
  • Improving the shelf life of contents
  • Trialling and testing new printing methods and techniques

  • Development of innovative closure mechanisms such as re-sealable or magnetic
  • Trialling the reaction and performance of various inks and their chemical reaction when used on difference materials
