Product Coding for Protein Producers

Array ( [post_title] => Product Coding for Protein Producers [post_content] =>

Regardless of package type, companies that produce meat or poultry products need to add variable information to the package. This includes date and lot codes, establishment codes, regulatory agency logos, and increasingly barcodes.

In many industries, this is quite straightforward, but for protein companies, there is the added complication of the environment in which coding and packaging equipment has to operate. Cold and wet conditions are the norm and any equipment brought into the plants needs to be able to handle this as well as washdown situations.

Traditionally continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers have been used for printing variable information onto meat and poultry packaging. These printers can usually handle the harsh conditions found on the packaging lines and also produce the print quality that is good enough for the applications. Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers have not been used in the past due to the inks being unsuitable for use on the films used for the packaging.

inkjet printing for protein companies

Over the last few years, however, there have been great advances in the chemistry of inks for TIJ printing and today, this technology is proving to be very successful at printing onto the non-porous substrates used for protein packaging.

The ink cartridges used in thermal inkjet printers ensure that there is no need to have to deal with the MEK and other solvents used in other print technologies, such as CIJ. There is no need to deal with disposing of partially used ink or additive bottles.

With no cleaning cycle needed at startup or shutdown, a thermal inkjet printer is always ready to work.

The thermal inkjet coders provided by ProMach brands, Code Tech & ID Technology, are designed to be able to get the job done in these areas. They bring all the advantages of the thermal inkjet system but include models that are available in IP65 versions, perfect for producing excellent code quality every time, regardless of the environment.

 

Reduce Maintenance & Downtime

A thermal impact printer uses familiar HP type ink cartridges. This means that every time you change the cartridge, you effectively get a new printer.

As a bonus, should you need to change the color of your print, this is accomplished by simply replacing the ink cartridge with one of the required color.

Our TIJ printers come in versions that are built to IP65 environmental protection. This means that regardless of how dirty or wet the packaging environment, the printers will operate happily.

Exceptional Print Quality

With print resolutions of up to 600×600 DPI, thermal inkjet produces perfect prints every time, even when printing very small fonts or high-density barcodes.

Inks are available that are fast drying and durable to suit just about every packaging material.

Quick and Simple Installation and Integration

Thermal inkjet printers from ID Technology and Code Tech have a small footprint, making them easy to install in your parent packaging machine, even when multiple heads are needed.

Combined with the web handling and printer traversing expertise of the Greydon brand, printers from ProMach Labeling & Coding can be integrated with every type of flexible packaging machine.

Is TIJ Always the Best Technology to Use?

No, not always.

Thermal inkjet brings some important advantages, but there are times where an alternative technology such as CIJ printing, thermal transfer, laser or ink stamping might make sense. We happen to sell a complete range of coding technologies so we can work with you to help decide which is best for your unique needs.

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers

Array ( [post_title] => End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers [post_content] =>

As companies improve their products and introduce new models, earlier generations are discontinued and eventually can no longer be supported.

I recently received a reminder from SATO that some of their legacy models have reached the end of their service/support period.

Included are the following models:

SATO EOS

 

You can see the original SATO end of service notice here: SATO EOS Doc

Most users of these printers have already upgraded to current models, but if you happen to still be using any of these models, please note that by the end of August, service will end and spare parts will be limited until the end of the year, after which they can’t be ordered.

What Should You Do?

If you do use any of these discontinued printers, it is best to upgrade to a new  SATO CLNX printer. The new model has a lot of advantages and is designed to be a simple replacement for older printers. SATO also has a special trade-in program for the legacy printers that you can take advantage of. ID Technology can help you with every step of this process.

Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability

Array ( [post_title] => Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability [post_content] =>

The Labeling News PodcastOur most recent podcast covered two topics:

The Loop waste-free packaging concept and how laser coding can help brands meet their sustainability targets.

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa’s CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I’m still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

Loop Waste Free Packaging Concept

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application – see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/

Laser Coding Can Help Meet Sustainability Targets

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.

The Labeling News PodcastOur most recent podcast covered two topics:

The Loop waste-free packaging concept and how laser coding can help brands meet their sustainability targets.

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa’s CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I’m still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

Loop Waste Free Packaging Concept

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application – see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/

Laser Coding Can Help Meet Sustainability Targets

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases

Array ( [post_title] => Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases [post_content] =>

Using inkjet printers to add variable information to shipping cases, is increasing in popularity. Using this technique can dramatically reduce the number of pre-printed items that need to be managed and fit into company efforts to increase digitalization and move to a lean workflow.

Here at ID Technology, we have a lot of experience when it comes to installing inkjet systems for printing barcodes, text and graphics onto corrugated cases. We are a founding distributor of the FoxJet ProSeries system and have won the prestigious Regency Award for top FoxJet distributor for 14 consecutive years.

If there is one thing we’ve learned over this time, it’s that having good product handling is as important as having good printing equipment for getting the high-quality, compliant GS1 barcodes that customers demand. If the boxes are not presented consistently and accurately to the printheads, this will show in poor print quality and in particular will not allow high-quality barcodes to be printed.

To help educate users on best practices for product handling, our friends at FoxJet recently produced a detailed whitepaper on this topic that goes over many of the issues that are important to ensure great quality printing every time.

FoxJet ProSeries Printers

The whitepaper the transition from the case taper or sealer to the conveyor where the barcode printers are installed as being an area of crucial importance. Because space is often limited on packaging lines, the printheads often have to be installed very close to the exit of the case sealer. Some important factors are:

Carton Control – Proximity to the Printhead

It is important that after leaving the case sealer, the boxes are correctly presented the correct distance from the printheads. The drops of ink that are fired from the printheads can only travel a short distance while maintaining accuracy. If the box is too far away, print quality will decline and if so close it hits the printhead, damage might occur.

Be sure to control the boxes gently so that the boxes are undamaged as they pass through your packaging processes.

It’s best to use guide rails to accurately control the position of the box and even better use in conjunction with FoxJet’s retracting printhead brackets. This bracket uses a roller allow the printhead to be the correct distance from the box every time.

Product/Conveyor Speed

Ensure that boxes leaving your case sealer are traveling at a speed that is within the limits of your inkjet printer. Our FoxJet ProSeries printheads are able to print high-quality text, barcodes and images at up to 300ft per minute, which is enough for all but the fastest production lines.

Angel Hair

No, we are not talking pasta here! Some case sealing machines use hot melt adhesive to hold the flaps on the boxes closed. At times the adhesive applicators can leave a stringy residue behind that can get stuck to the printheads and block the tiny nozzles. Dust from the corrugated boxes can be bad too – be sure to regularly clean your packaging equipment and the printheads.

Vibrations

Good quality printing depends on the boxes being transferred smoothly past the printheads. Make sure your conveyor belt runs smoothly and that you are not dropping boxes onto the conveyor where the printheads are mounted. We’ve seen this happen and the results are not always pretty!

Best Practice of All

The best way to get the best labeling or coding for your shipping cases is to connect with your local ID Technology representative. With many years of experience, combined with the case packing, sealing and product handling of ProMach, we are able to help you determine the best solution for all your case coding or labeling needs.

COLD FOIL VS HOT FOIL

Array ( [post_title] => COLD FOIL VS HOT FOIL [post_content] =>

Integrating foil on your labels can draw consumers eyes to your product and take your brand to a more luxurious level. Cold foil transfer and hot stamping are two ways you can integrate foil onto your label design. 

The two main differences between cold foil and hot foil are the way they are applied and the materials which they can be applied to. Even though the appearance of hot foil and cold foil is slightly different, the difference is almost unrecognizable.

Cold Foil

Cold foil is applied by printing a UV-curable adhesive in the desired areas that you want the foil. Then foil is applied to the adhesive immediately, completely covering it. The foil is stripped away but remains only in the areas where the adhesive was applied. Lastly, the labels are run under a UV light to completely cure the adhesive. The process of removing the access foil from the label makes this method less suitable for designs with fine details.

Hot Foil

Hot foil requires a metal die or stamp. This metal die is made in reverse image of where the foil will be in the design. The metal die is mounted above the label on press and heated. The foil material runs between the mounted metal die and the label. The metal die stamps or presses down on the foil using the heat to apply the foil to the label. Hot foil can be used with other printing techniques like embossing and is a better technique to use with fine details.

Economics

Cold foil is more affordable and less costly as hot foil. The main price difference that make cold foil more affordable is the price of the metal die used for hot foil. Cold foil also can be done in a shorter timeline because metal dies can take about two weeks to receive. Another options that may be more affordable is printing your label on a metallic material instead of applying foil to a label. Even though the appearance of printing on metallic materials is different than applying a foil it can give the same appeal.

Make your products packaging stand out on store shelves by adding metallic paper or films, inks, or hot stamping/cold foiling to your label design. Contact Whitlam Group today and we can help engineer your label and find the best solution with your design.

Scratch Off

Array ( [post_title] => Scratch Off [post_content] =>

Everyone is familiar with scratch off cards and how they work. The fun begins when you purchase a scratch off card, and you know that there is a possibility that you may win an awesome prize. We all hope to be the winner, but the excitement involved in whether you will be the lucky winner is what makes scratch offs so much fun.

In today’s online society it is hard for businesses to keep customers visiting their stores. One marketing strategy that will help keep customer engaged, and make you memorable is promotional scratch off cards. Fun promotional items, like scratch off cards, can bring customer to your business. They allow shoppers to have fun while shopping.

How to get Started

Scratch offs don’t have to be in a card form. They can be in a label or tag form as well. They can include anything under the surface of the scratch off, including text, codes, images or barcodes. You can be as creative as your mind will allow. Here are some things to consider when designing your scratch off label.

  1. What kind of different promotions do you want to do and how many of each? (discounts, giveaways, etc.)
  2. When will your promotion run?
  3. How long will they have to redeem their prize?
  4. Will everyone be a winner?
  5. How will you hand out the scratch off labels?
  6. Do you want them to be labels, tags or cards?
  7. How many do you want to hand out and where?
  8. What other information do you want on your label besides the scratch off?
  9. What do you want the message of your label to say under and around the scratch off area?
  10. What kind of label specifications do you have? (size, substrate, color, etc.)

Scratch off messages can be as simple as “Winner” or “Try Again” and as complex as various longer messages or images. Here are some ideas for promotional scratch off labels:

  1. Size or quantity upgrade
  2. Money/percent off on product/service
  3. Free product/service
  4. Buy one, get one offers
  5. Complimentary service upgrade
  6. Free estimation on service

Scratch off cards can even be used internally to help build up employee moral or at company events. Here are some ideas for internal company use:

  1. Cash bonus
  2. Extra PTO time
  3. Giveaway prizes
  4. Lunch on the company
  5. Boss for a day

Everyone is familiar with scratch off cards and how they work. The fun begins when you purchase a scratch off card, and you know that there is a possibility that you may win an awesome prize. We all hope to be the winner, but the excitement involved in whether you will be the lucky winner is what makes scratch offs so much fun.

In today’s online society it is hard for businesses to keep customers visiting their stores. One marketing strategy that will help keep customer engaged, and make you memorable is promotional scratch off cards. Fun promotional items, like scratch off cards, can bring customer to your business. They allow shoppers to have fun while shopping.

How to get Started

Scratch offs don’t have to be in a card form. They can be in a label or tag form as well. They can include anything under the surface of the scratch off, including text, codes, images or barcodes. You can be as creative as your mind will allow. Here are some things to consider when designing your scratch off label.

  1. What kind of different promotions do you want to do and how many of each? (discounts, giveaways, etc.)
  2. When will your promotion run?
  3. How long will they have to redeem their prize?
  4. Will everyone be a winner?
  5. How will you hand out the scratch off labels?
  6. Do you want them to be labels, tags or cards?
  7. How many do you want to hand out and where?
  8. What other information do you want on your label besides the scratch off?
  9. What do you want the message of your label to say under and around the scratch off area?
  10. What kind of label specifications do you have? (size, substrate, color, etc.)

Scratch off messages can be as simple as “Winner” or “Try Again” and as complex as various longer messages or images. Here are some ideas for promotional scratch off labels:

  1. Size or quantity upgrade
  2. Money/percent off on product/service
  3. Free product/service
  4. Buy one, get one offers
  5. Complimentary service upgrade
  6. Free estimation on service

Scratch off cards can even be used internally to help build up employee moral or at company events. Here are some ideas for internal company use:

  1. Cash bonus
  2. Extra PTO time
  3. Giveaway prizes
  4. Lunch on the company
  5. Boss for a day

New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020

Array ( [post_title] => New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020 [post_content] =>

What You Need to Know

In May 2016 the FDA published new rules for the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods. The new rules reflect new scientific information that links consumers diet to chronic diseases. The new rules will change the information on the Nutrition Facts label allowing consumers to make better informed food choices.

Even though the new rules and changes were published in 2016, the FDA gave manufactures dates of when theses changes need to be completed by. As 2020 approaches some of those dates are getting closer and manufactures need to be aware that by these indicated dates the new Nutrition Facts label needs to be updated on their products.

What are the Changes

The overall look of the Nutrition Facts label is remaining the same but there are some important updates to be aware of. These changes include:

  1. Increase type size for “Calories,” “serving per container,” and “Serving size” declaration.
  2. Bolding the number of calories and the “Serving size” declaration.
  3. Declaring the actual amount, in addition to percent Daily Value of Vitamin D, calcium, iron and potassium.
  4. The footnote is changing and should now read: “*The % Daily Value tells you how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet. 2,000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice.”
  5. “Added sugars” should now include the amount in grams and in percent daily value.
  6. The list of nutrients is changing to Vitamin D, potassium, calcium and iron.
  7. Vitamin A and C are no longer required but if manufactures wish to list more nutrients, they can include more then just the four required.
  8. “Total fat,” “Saturated Fat,” and “Trans Fat” are still required but the “Calories from Fat” is being removed.
  9. Daily values of nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and Vitamin D are being updated based on new scientific evidence.
  10. Serving sizes are being updated because they have changed since the last serving size requirements were published.
  11. Packaging that is between one and two servings will be required to be labeled as one serving.
  12. Certain products that are require a “dual column” if they are larger than one serving but could be consumed in one serving or multiple servings The “dual column” will indicated the amount of calories and nutrients on both a “per serving” and “per package”/”per unit” basis.

Why the Change

The current Nutrition Facts label is more then 20 years old. The last requirements were published in 1993. Based on updated scientific research, new nutrition and public health research, more recent dietary recommendations from expert groups and input from the public, the FDA has updated the requirements. The updates will give consumers access to more recent and accurate nutritional information about the foods they are eating.

Dates to know

The Following dates were set by the FDA. Manufactures have until theses dates to comply.

How to Get Your Product Tested to Ensure Proper Changes are Made

If you would like more information on the new Nutrition Facts label rules, visit the FDA website. Make sure that you have the right information on your products Nutrition Facts label by getting a sample of your product tested at an FDA certified laboratory. The names and locations of appropriate laboratories can be found in publications such as, Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC), the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC), the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS), and the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and other numerous trade journals and similar publications.

Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels [post_content] =>

What are Egress Labels?

Wrinkles in bubbles in labels can affect a products appearance. Bubbling issues can occur with injection-molded plastics products. These products are commonly used in the durable goods industry.

Air Egress labels allow air to flow freely between a product and a label. This allows air from outgassing and entrapment to escape quickly. This process is created in the substrate using a micro-embossed texture to create an even finish. This complex texture that is created in the adhesive allows any trapped air to escape when the label is applied to a products surface. 

Stray bubbles no longer have a chance to ruin the smooth application your label requires. Heat causes outgassing and bubbling of labels, but micro-embossed materials allow those bubbles to escape and keep the surface of the label smooth throughout the entire label’s lifetime. Labels on injection-molded plastics are more prone to bubbles or wrinkles but with Air Egress labels this is no longer a concern. Air Egress materials are durable and long lasting. They allow outgasses to escape even after environmental aging over time.

Features and Benefits

 

Uses

Air Egress labels can be used on a variety of durable labeling applications. Automotive labels, under hood applications, water heaters, lawn equipment, recreational vehicles and chemical drums for outdoor applications are just some of the products that Air Egress labels can be used on. Some examples of labels include, product identification labels, barcodes and rating labels, work in progress labels, property identification and asset tags, and durable goods labeling.

Whitlam works with different substrate suppliers to ensure that we meet your label requirements. We understand the importance of branding and why it is important to make sure that your label meets your brand standards. Whitlam cares about your products appearance. Contact us today if you would like more information about how we can help you have good quality labels on your products.

Stray bubbles no longer have a chance to ruin the smooth application your label requires. Heat causes outgassing and bubbling of labels, but micro-embossed materials allow those bubbles to escape and keep the surface of the label smooth throughout the entire label’s lifetime. Labels on injection-molded plastics are more prone to bubbles or wrinkles but with Air Egress labels this is no longer a concern. Air Egress materials are durable and long lasting. They allow outgasses to escape even after environmental aging over time.

Features and Benefits

 

Uses

Air Egress labels can be used on a variety of durable labeling applications. Automotive labels, under hood applications, water heaters, lawn equipment, recreational vehicles and chemical drums for outdoor applications are just some of the products that Air Egress labels can be used on. Some examples of labels include, product identification labels, barcodes and rating labels, work in progress labels, property identification and asset tags, and durable goods labeling.

Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels

What are Egress Labels?

Wrinkles in bubbles in labels can affect a products appearance. Bubbling issues can occur with injection-molded plastics products. These products are commonly used in the durable goods industry.

Air Egress labels allow air to flow freely between a product and a label. This allows air from outgassing and entrapment to escape quickly. This process is created in the substrate using a micro-embossed texture to create an even finish. This complex texture that is created in the adhesive allows any trapped air to escape when the label is applied to a products surface. 

Stray bubbles no longer have a chance to ruin the smooth application your label requires.

Brand Security

Tamper

At Whitlam we understand that it is important to protect your brand. Over a billion dollars is spent annually by US Fortune 500 companies to fight counterfeiting, protect brand names and trademarks. Every year automotive and aircraft part manufacturers lose billions of dollars in revenue to counterfeit parts. Since internet shopping has become so popular, counterfeit products are at its highest. Companies like International Trademark Association is estimating that the total global economic value of counterfeiting could reach $2.3 trillion by 2022. Most counterfeit items are sold online and bought by consumers and wholesalers. Counterfeiters are the most significant competitors in most markets.

Whitlam Group is determined to work with brand owners to come up with a solution that protects their brand, works best for them, and is cost-effective. Whitlam will combine low and high security elements together to enhance protection for brand owners and use different types of technology to maximize their protection. Spending extra for a label that will help protect your brand can be well worth the money if it stops counterfeiters from selling your product and stealing your money.

The Problem

It is important to understand why brand owners need to protect themselves from counterfeiting because not only is it illegal it can also be very dangerous. Counterfeit products are not made to the same standards which can result in devastating accidents, mechanical malfunctions, health and safety risks, and a loss of positive reputation. Consumers, wholesalers, and manufactures are all at risk. 

When consumers purchase counterfeit products, they may be at a loss when it comes to money, if the product doesn’t work. However, the main concern for consumers isn’t the loss of money but rather the health and safety risks that they may encounter when using counterfeit products. Some goods that consumers can purchase that may be counterfeit include automotive parts, power tools, electrical products, games, pharmaceuticals and other over-the-counter medications, baby formula, toys, clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, outdoor equipment and much more. If a consumer uses any of these counterfeit items then they can be at risk for medical issues, mechanical malfunctions or even fatal consequences. 

Manufactures and Wholesalers face the risk of lawsuits and liability costs. Even if they are unaware that they are selling a counterfeited product they are still held accountable. Counterfeit products can also lead to wholesalers issuing a recall which can cost them millions of dollars as well. Manufactures and Wholesalers can both lose their positive brand reputation if consumers are unaware, they bought a counterfeit product. If a brands reputation is ruined by counterfeit products it can be very difficult to repair the damage and regain a positive brand reputation.

Solutions

There are hundreds of different security features that can be added to your brand, labels and packaging to help protect your products. The best time to place a security featured label on products is before the products leaves the manufacturing facility. Tamper evident, authentication and trace security labels are just a few options that brand owners have, to help secure their products. Multiple solutions can be combined to achieve maximum protection.

Tamper evident labels are printed on destructible substrates which can change appearance or are destroyed when tampering such as removing or transferring the label occurs. If a product was tampered with and the label was removed or transferred, a tamper evident label with show proof that the product was tampered. One way the label will do this is by ripping into pieces and leaving evidence behind on the product showing that it was tampered with. Sometimes this can be strips of the label itself or it can be the word “void” repeated over the area that the label was adhered to.

Authentication labels incorporate combinations of security features that can be visually seen or identified and easy to verify. These security features can be checked by anyone within the supply chain. Visual authentication includes barcodes, special inks, holograms, watermarks, embossing and more. Authentication labels can also contain hidden security features. Some hidden features include invisible images or text, hidden barcodes, digital authentication, markers, retro reflective technology, optical variable devices and more. Hidden features can be verified by special lighting, magnification, technology and software. Authentication labels are nearly impossible to copy or imitate.

A third option for brand security is track and trace labels. These labels are unique product identification solutions. Track and trace features can be visual or hidden and can be added to products, pallets or shipping containers. This unique marker can be monitored through the whole process of the supply chain. This feature requires special management data technology and software. Track and Trace solutions allows products to be traced from production all the way down the supply chain till the product reaches the consumers hands which allows the consumer to verify where the product came from and where it traveled from the time it left the manufacturing facility. With this information the consumer will be able to identify if the product was tampered with and if the product is authentic.

How to get Started

Protecting your brand by using brand security labels and packaging is important. It helps with verifying that products being sold to consumers are authentic and builds customer confidence and brand loyalty. Brand security assists with detecting counterfeit products high in the supply chain before the products reach the consumer.

Whitlam is here to help you find a solution. We specialize in brand security options such as tamper evident labels, authentication labels, and track and trace labels. These options can include but are not limited to part marking codes, holograms, specialty inks, RFID, QR codes, micro text, UV indicator, invisible text or images, special die-cuts, destructible substrates and more.

Replacing Engraved Plates with Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Replacing Engraved Plates with Labels [post_content] =>

Face Plate

Process of Engraving Plates

Engraved name plates are used in the automotive and industrial industries. Some substrates that are used for engraved name plates are aluminum, brass, polycarbonate, stainless steel and more.

Etching and mechanical engraving are processes used when creating engraved name plates. Mechanical engraving uses a high-speed rotary cutting tool to cut into the surface of the name plate. After the engraving process an enamel paint is used to fill in the engraved areas.

Etching uses acid resistant coating in its process to burn away the areas that are engraved. Once the etching process is completed then an enamel paint is used to seal and cure the name plate. The plate is then soaked, cleaned and a clear coat-lacquered is applied for extra protection. This process is used to meet certain requirements such as depth of letters into the surface of the name plate.

An Alternative Solution

All the different processes and special tools used when created an engraved nameplate can be very costly. When using the etching process, the chemicals used can be harmful to the environment.

Labels can be substituted for all of these processes as long as there is not any depth requirements. Label substrates can be extremely durable and more affordable. Label substrates can be less costly then the tooling or chemicals used in the mechanical engraving and etching processes.

Using a label may open the door for more options for brand security. Label specifications can be added to make the label self-destructive or include other security features. Some of these security features may not be achievable from the engraving processes.

Labels can be placed on any surface. A metal plate may still be used for your process but instead of having the plate engraved you can place a label on the plate. Foam adhesives that are used to attach name plates to desired surfaces can be used with labels as well.

Choosing a label over engraving may allow you to be more creative in your design of the label as well. Some of the more detail logos or designs that you would like to include on your name plate might not be achievable with etching and mechanical engraving but will be achievable with the design of a label.

At Whitlam Group

Whitlam Group specializes in labels, tags and packaging. We have a state-of-the-art laboratory that allows us to test substrates to meet requirements.

Face Plate

Process of Engraving Plates

Engraved name plates are used in the automotive and industrial industries. Some substrates that are used for engraved name plates are aluminum, brass, polycarbonate, stainless steel and more.

Etching and mechanical engraving are processes used when creating engraved name plates. Mechanical engraving uses a high-speed rotary cutting tool to cut into the surface of the name plate. After the engraving process an enamel paint is used to fill in the engraved areas.

Etching uses acid resistant coating in its process to burn away the areas that are engraved. Once the etching process is completed then an enamel paint is used to seal and cure the name plate. The plate is then soaked, cleaned and a clear coat-lacquered is applied for extra protection. This process is used to meet certain requirements such as depth of letters into the surface of the name plate.

An Alternative Solution

All the different processes and special tools used when created an engraved nameplate can be very costly. When using the etching process, the chemicals used can be harmful to the environment.

Labels can be substituted for all of these processes as long as there is not any depth requirements. Label substrates can be extremely durable and more affordable. Label substrates can be less costly then the tooling or chemicals used in the mechanical engraving and etching processes.

Using a label may open the door for more options for brand security. Label specifications can be added to make the label self-destructive or include other security features. Some of these security features may not be achievable from the engraving processes.

Labels can be placed on any surface. A metal plate may still be used for your process but instead of having the plate engraved you can place a label on the plate. Foam adhesives that are used to attach name plates to desired surfaces can be used with labels as well.

Choosing a label over engraving may allow you to be more creative in your design of the label as well. Some of the more detail logos or designs that you would like to include on your name plate might not be achievable with etching and mechanical engraving but will be achievable with the design of a label.

Cell Sequence Labels

What are Returnable & Reusable Packaging/Shipping Containers?

In today’s world recycling is very important. Many companies are trying to find new ways to protect the environment by reusing and recycling products or materials. Some companies have been doing this by using returnable and reusable packaging and shipping containers.

These containers are made from different materials depending on the product that will be being shipped in them to ensure quality, durability and safety. They can be split into sections to ship multiple parts in the same shipping containers and are separated by walls that are sometimes adjustable.

Cell Sequence Labels in use

Uses

Sometimes these shipping containers can also be used for sequencing racks. Using the same container for a sequencing rack and shipping container can be very cost efficient. In the automotive industry these containers can be used for shipping products such as engines or car doors from supplier to assembly plants. Once the parts that are shipped in a container are taken out and used then the container can be sent back to the supplier to be re-used for the next shipment.

Some of the industries that these are used in are industrial, farming, manufacturing, distributing, warehousing, consumer goods and logistics organizations.

Labeling

At Whitlam Group we do supply labels to help define and separate each compartment in these containers. We call these labels Cell Sequencing labels or Rack labels. These cell/rack labels are variable meaning each cell/rack in a container has a separate number and barcode on them. This will allow you to identify each part individually.

With our in-house lab capabilities, we can test these labels to ensure they will be durable on any type of container. We have various substrates and are able to find the adhesive and material combinations that will be right for you.

Whitlam Group strives to protect the environment and creating labels to help companies be able to label their parts in order to use these reusable/returnable containers is something we take pride in.

Next-gen flow wrappers handle sustainable films, simplify sanitation

Array ( [post_title] => Next-gen flow wrappers handle sustainable films, simplify sanitation [post_content] =>

Flow wrappers are evolving with the times. Driving the many improvements in this area of packaging automation are the marketplace demand for more sustainable flexible packaging materials, high operator turnover, and food processors’ emphasis on product quality and safety. On the horizon, too, is augmented reality (AR) technology for better training and faster troubleshooting.

The upshot is an emerging generation of flow wrappers that are easier to use, faster to clean and generally more efficient. Flow-wrapper manufacturers are designing the systems to reduce film waste and to simplify sanitation and maintenance—in many cases with a smaller equipment footprint.

Used to package baked goods, candy bars, medical products and a variety of consumer goods, newer flow wrappers are compatible with an expanding range of flexible materials, including recyclable and biodegradable films.

For our exclusive Q&A on advancements in flow wrappers, Packaging Digest asked the following industry insiders to share their thoughts on recent developments, as well as what they expect to see in the future:

• Graham Nice, regional sales manager at Campbell Wrapper Corp.;

• Angela McDaniel, marketing coordinator at Formost Fuji Corp.;

• Christian Ballabio, engineering department manager at Ilapak Intl. SA.

 

What recent advancements have you seen in flow wrappers?

McDaniel: They’re easier to operate, incorporating a human-machine interface (HMI) that has been designed to be easy to use. For example, operators can be quickly trained to use HMIs that are designed with icons, to be more like a smartphone or tablet. This is important with the high turnover rate and younger tech-savvy employees.

Short film routing saves material, while the easier-to-thread film routing saves time.

Reduction of changeover time is another advancement with today’s wrappers. Improvements that can be done to the wrapper to help reduce labor and material expenses, and still maintain package seal quality, is important.

Improved sanitary design is critical. With sanitation being such a big part of the food industry, it has become imperative that manufacturers improve upon equipment design to make it easier to thoroughly sanitize and inspect.

For example, some wrappers can be quickly disassembled, leaving the wrapper wide open for thorough sanitation, easy inspection and maintenance availability.

The Formost Fuji Alpha 8 Flow Wrapper features a sanitary design, operator-friendly HMI and short film routing.

 

Nice: Intelligent track infeeds and ultrasonic fin sealing are advanced technologies that are emerging for flow wrappers. Newer open-frame wrapper design is more sanitary than sealed-tube construction. The feeder and wrapper are cantilevered to allow crumbs and debris to fall through.

 

Ballabio: Higher automation content, better performance, the capability to process new materials such as recyclable/biodegradable/mono-material, the evolution of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and the growth of hygienic design are all recent advancements.

 

How do these advanced systems compare to the existing standard equipment?

Nice: In ultrasonic fin sealing, there is no heat involved with sealing. And ultrasonic sealing provides feedback on the energy used to create the seal.

Sometimes machine size is an issue. Intelligent track infeeds use less floor space by potentially shortening the wrapper’s overall length. And we’ve got a dual, back-to-back machine—two independent wrappers mounted on a common backplate—that takes up less floor space compared to two standard single-lane wrappers.

 

Ballabio: Advanced systems have evolved in four areas: electronics and software, sealing technologies, materials and surface treatments, and gas management and oxygen control.

 

McDaniel: It is important for equipment to evolve with today’s technology. Using the options that improve upon the efficiency of the flow wrapper can greatly reduce the cost of use. Purchasing equipment without the advanced features will end up costing more in the long run.

 

What are the benefits of these advancements for packaging machinery buyers/users?

Ballabio: Benefits include higher efficiency, extended shelf life for products, and easier cleaning and maintenance.

 

McDaniel: Reduction in film waste and shortening the time spent operating and cleaning the wrapper are improvements that can provide savings in many ways to buyers, adding to their profit margin. As they say, “time is money” on the production floor, so having equipment that is simple to operate is important.

 

Nice: Intelligent track infeeds can reduce the overall floor space/footprint and can handle more irregular product flow versus a conventional automatic product feeder. 

With no heat involved in ultrasonic fin sealing, it can be a plus for heat-sensitive products like those containing or being coated in chocolate, or temperature-sensitive medical devices and drugs. Ultrasonic sealing can potentially reduce the amount of film required for a typical flow-wrapped package and maintain the same quality of seal or better, versus conventional heat-sealing technology. It produces a hermetic seal even when there is contamination, like crumbs, in the fin-seal area.

More sanitary designs allow for easier allergen cleaning, and there are fewer areas on the machine for harborage, leading to significantly reduced cleaning time.

A Campbell flow wrapper configured with JLS Talon robotic loading system is suited to packaging fresh and frozen baked goods, including desserts and snacks.

 

What areas in flow wrapping still need work and why?

McDaniel: I believe we will continue to see improvement in the sealing capabilities with sustainable materials. As recyclable films improve, flow wrappers will need to be adapted to provide good seal quality for the different types of materials.

 

Nice: Infeed chains. Most machines still have infeed chains that are hard to clean and present changeover challenges. I would expect to see more lugless infeeds in the future.

Sealing-technology advancements will be a necessary development for recyclable and biodegradable film structures, as well as for lighter-gauge films that aim to reduce landfill for anything non-recyclable.

 

Ballabio: Feeding systems are key for automatic apps. Quality-control features are key for requirements and efficiency.

The modular Ilapak Delta X flow wrapper was designed for MAP bakery applications.

 

What’s next, and when might we see further improvements in flow wrappers?

Ballabio: Industry 4.0, connectivity and augmented reality.

 

McDaniel: The use of AR and virtual reality (VR) technology for training and service purposes will be coming to the forefront over the next few years, saving time and money.

 

Nice: Over the next five years, I think we will see more integration directly into robotic feeding and cartoning/case-packing solutions. Flow wrappers will be more of a packaging component rather than just a standalone packaging operation unit. 

Also, we’ll see higher speeds and reduced labor requirements, and machines with artificial intelligence (AI) that operate within the Internet of Things. [This type of smart machine] can self-optimize its operation and self-diagnose any maintenance or quality issues, as well as contact vendors for service and/or parts, as necessary, and reorder consumables such as film without human intervention.

I also believe that within the next 10 years we will see individual package track-and-trace technology—like the kind the pharmaceutical industry is currently implementing—throughout the food industry, and that the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) will be expanded to include any food or product that has a shelf life, so it can be tracked back to the date, time and place that it was packaged.

Nice: In ultrasonic fin sealing, there is no heat involved with sealing. And ultrasonic sealing provides feedback on the energy used to create the seal.

Sometimes machine size is an issue. Intelligent track infeeds use less floor space by potentially shortening the wrapper’s overall length. And we’ve got a dual, back-to-back machine—two independent wrappers mounted on a common backplate—that takes up less floor space compared to two standard single-lane wrappers.

 

Ballabio: Advanced systems have evolved in four areas: electronics and software, sealing technologies, materials and surface treatments, and gas management and oxygen control.

 

McDaniel: It is important for equipment to evolve with today’s technology. Using the options that improve upon the efficiency of the flow wrapper can greatly reduce the cost of use. Purchasing equipment without the advanced features will end up costing more in the long run.

 

What are the benefits of these advancements for packaging machinery buyers/users?

Ballabio: Benefits include higher efficiency, extended shelf life for products, and easier cleaning and maintenance.

 

McDaniel: Reduction in film waste and shortening the time spent operating and cleaning the wrapper are improvements that can provide savings in many ways to buyers, adding to their profit margin. As they say, “time is money” on the production floor, so having equipment that is simple to operate is important.

 

Nice: Intelligent track infeeds can reduce the overall floor space/footprint and can handle more irregular product flow versus a conventional automatic product feeder. 

With no heat involved in ultrasonic fin sealing, it can be a plus for heat-sensitive products like those containing or being coated in chocolate, or temperature-sensitive medical devices and drugs. Ultrasonic sealing can potentially reduce the amount of film required for a typical flow-wrapped package and maintain the same quality of seal or better, versus conventional heat-sealing technology. It produces a hermetic seal even when there is contamination, like crumbs, in the fin-seal area.

More sanitary designs allow for easier allergen cleaning, and there are fewer areas on the machine for harborage, leading to significantly reduced cleaning time.

A Campbell flow wrapper configured with JLS Talon robotic loading system is suited to packaging fresh and frozen baked goods, including desserts and snacks.

 

What areas in flow wrapping still need work and why?

McDaniel: I believe we will continue to see improvement in the sealing capabilities with sustainable materials. As recyclable films improve, flow wrappers will need to be adapted to provide good seal quality for the different types of materials.

 

Nice: Infeed chains. Most machines still have infeed chains that are hard to clean and present changeover challenges. I would expect to see more lugless infeeds in the future.

Sealing-technology advancements will be a necessary development for recyclable and biodegradable film structures, as well as for lighter-gauge films that aim to reduce landfill for anything non-recyclable.

 

Ballabio: Feeding systems are key for automatic apps. Quality-control features are key for requirements and efficiency.

The modular Ilapak Delta X flow wrapper was designed for MAP bakery applications.

 

What’s next, and when might we see further improvements in flow wrappers?

Ballabio: Industry 4.0, connectivity and augmented reality.

 

McDaniel: The use of AR and virtual reality (VR) technology for training and service purposes will be coming to the forefront over the next few years, saving time and money.

 

Nice: Over the next five years, I think we will see more integration directly into robotic feeding and cartoning/case-packing solutions. Flow wrappers will be more of a packaging component rather than just a standalone packaging operation unit. 

Also, we’ll see higher speeds and reduced labor requirements, and machines with artificial intelligence (AI) that operate within the Internet of Things. [This type of smart machine] can self-optimize its operation and self-diagnose any maintenance or quality issues, as well as contact vendors for service and/or parts, as necessary, and reorder consumables such as film without human intervention.

I also believe that within the next 10 years we will see individual package track-and-trace technology—like the kind the pharmaceutical industry is currently implementing—throughout the food industry, and that the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) will be expanded to include any food or product that has a shelf life, so it can be tracked back to the date, time and place that it was packaged.

Flow wrappers are evolving with the times. Driving the many improvements in this area of packaging automation are the marketplace demand for more sustainable flexible packaging materials, high operator turnover, and food processors’ emphasis on product quality and safety. On the horizon, too, is augmented reality (AR) technology for better training and faster troubleshooting.

The upshot is an emerging generation of flow wrappers that are easier to use, faster to clean and generally more efficient. Flow-wrapper manufacturers are designing the systems to reduce film waste and to simplify sanitation and maintenance—in many cases with a smaller equipment footprint.

Used to package baked goods, candy bars, medical products and a variety of consumer goods, newer flow wrappers are compatible with an expanding range of flexible materials, including recyclable and biodegradable films.

For our exclusive Q&A on advancements in flow wrappers, Packaging Digest asked the following industry insiders to share their thoughts on recent developments, as well as what they expect to see in the future:

• Graham Nice, regional sales manager at Campbell Wrapper Corp.;

• Angela McDaniel, marketing coordinator at Formost Fuji Corp.;

• Christian Ballabio, engineering department manager at Ilapak Intl. SA.

 

What recent advancements have you seen in flow wrappers?

McDaniel: They’re easier to operate, incorporating a human-machine interface (HMI) that has been designed to be easy to use. For example, operators can be quickly trained to use HMIs that are designed with icons, to be more like a smartphone or tablet. This is important with the high turnover rate and younger tech-savvy employees.

Short film routing saves material, while the easier-to-thread film routing saves time.

Reduction of changeover time is another advancement with today’s wrappers. Improvements that can be done to the wrapper to help reduce labor and material expenses, and still maintain package seal quality, is important.

Improved sanitary design is critical. With sanitation being such a big part of the food industry, it has become imperative that manufacturers improve upon equipment design to make it easier to thoroughly sanitize and inspect.

For example, some wrappers can be quickly disassembled, leaving the wrapper wide open for thorough sanitation, easy inspection and maintenance availability.

Push-button jar lid redefines ‘easy open’

Array ( [post_title] => Push-button jar lid redefines ‘easy open’ [post_content] =>

Jar opening is now as easy as pushing a button, which reduces the required torque by 40%the new Eeasy Lid debuts with Darci's brand pasta sauce.

 

Ever have a problem opening a jar because a lid’s on so tight that it requires a tool, rubber glove or another person just to get the darn thing off?

That frustration may be a thing of the past: Consumer Convenience Technologies unveiled today the launch of its new Eeasy Lid, which makes opening a vacuum-sealed jar up to 40% easier with just the push of a button. CCT claims that the breakthrough is the first significant innovation in the metal jar lid industry in 75 years.

The patented Eeasy Lid allows consumers to vent a jar by simply pressing a button on the lid, which opens a tiny slit that breaks the seal and releases the vacuum. After use, the lid is reclosed by pressing the button from the inside of the lid to help keep the product fresh and prevent spills.

“I’ve worked closely with CCT to thoroughly test Eeasy Lid for its suitability to ensure safety and stability of food products hot-filled into glass containers,” says Bruno Xavier, PhD., a processing authority at Cornell University. “Through our studies, we’ve found that these lids provide a stable hermetic seal. By pressing the center of the Eeasy Lid, users simply release the vacuumed air, making it easy to open—ultimately providing a better experience to consumers, as indicated by the data provided by the manufacturer.”

Consumers can tell whether their product has been tampered with by looking at the button on the Eeasy Lid, which will be inverted if it has been previously opened. 

The Eeasy Lid was invented by Pete Stodd, managing partner at CCT and president of Container Development Ltd., which developed the CDL end, used in 75% of beverage cans manufactured worldwide. Stodd was approached by a friend who couldn’t open a jar due to breast cancer, so he spent the next eight years developing the Eeasy Lid.

“About a third of consumers can’t open a jar, so the Eeasy Lid expands the market for manufacturers and retailers by making the product useable to everyone,” adds James Bach, CCT managing partner.

CCT can produce Eeasy Lids, which are intended for use on vacuum-sealed glass jars, in sizes from 58mm-82mm.

The lids are a seamless drop-in for current capping/packaging lines, according to president Brandon Bach, who tells Packaging Digest, “the Eeasy button is below the chime, enabling the lid to be applied by cappers.”

 

Production and launch

CCT will begin producing CT versions of the Eeasy Lid in December before they appear in stores in January when Pennsylvania-based Boyer’s markets will use the CT Eeasy Lids on its Darci’s brand pasta sauce in all 18 stores. The product will be produced and packaged by Stello Foods and distributed by Cavallaro Foods.

“After working in the food packaging industry for more than 30 years, it is nice to see an advancement in packaging design as simple and effective as the Eeasy Lid,” says Nickki Stello, owner of Stello Foods. “I could easily see this lid becoming the preferred jar lid packaging solution for the industry, accepted and appreciated by all consumers.”

Packaging Digest learned that Darci’s will use 70G (standard mouth 70mm) CT lids on 26-ounce jars of pasta sauce. The lids are made of aluminum and use the same coatings as common tinplate lids.

CCT has performed a battery of tests on the Eeasy Lid including shipping test products by air and ground domestically and to Canada and France. The company has also filled and shipped products at different elevations.

“Once people experience the Eeasy Lid, they’re hooked,” says James Bach. “We’ve developed a simple solution to an issue that everyone can identify with. Opening a jar equipped with the Eeasy Lid is a completely different experience.”

When asked about the costs, Brandon Bach responds, “Eeasy Lid pricing will be based on market conditions. Switching to the Eeasy Lid expands the market by making the product available to the 30% of consumers who are not able to open a standard jar lid—that’s people who are aging, lack grip strength or are dealing with health issues like arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel or recovering from a surgical procedure. We also see the Eeasy Lid as a means of premiumization for many brands because it is an all-inclusive product.”

CCT is expanding the Eeasy Lid platform by developing the world’s first aluminum lug, which will begin production in January. Testing on the lug version of the Eeasy Lid showed a 58% reduction in the amount of torque needed to open a jar compared to a traditional steel lug.

That will allow the Eeasy Lid to be available for use on products that utilize lug lids, which is about 80% of the market, according to CCT.

Further plans look to push the lids’ market beyond Darci’s launch.

“We hired Daymon Worldwide to assist in the go-to-market strategy for both manufactures and retailers, Brandon Bach points out. “We are planning to begin to approach both classes of trade after the first of the year. We are going to Grow-NY and the PLMA trade shows to begin to talk with potential clients about the New Eeasy lid.”

The Push Button Closure on the Eeasy Lids is patented and is covered by multiple patents, according to CCT.

“Once people experience the Eeasy Lid, they’re hooked,” says James Bach. “We’ve developed a simple solution to an issue that everyone can identify with. Opening a jar equipped with the Eeasy Lid is a completely different experience.”

When asked about the costs, Brandon Bach responds, “Eeasy Lid pricing will be based on market conditions. Switching to the Eeasy Lid expands the market by making the product available to the 30% of consumers who are not able to open a standard jar lid—that’s people who are aging, lack grip strength or are dealing with health issues like arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel or recovering from a surgical procedure. We also see the Eeasy Lid as a means of premiumization for many brands because it is an all-inclusive product.”

CCT is expanding the Eeasy Lid platform by developing the world’s first aluminum lug, which will begin production in January. Testing on the lug version of the Eeasy Lid showed a 58% reduction in the amount of torque needed to open a jar compared to a traditional steel lug.

That will allow the Eeasy Lid to be available for use on products that utilize lug lids, which is about 80% of the market, according to CCT.

Further plans look to push the lids’ market beyond Darci’s launch.

“We hired Daymon Worldwide to assist in the go-to-market strategy for both manufactures and retailers, Brandon Bach points out. “We are planning to begin to approach both classes of trade after the first of the year. We are going to Grow-NY and the PLMA trade shows to begin to talk with potential clients about the New Eeasy lid.”

The Push Button Closure on the Eeasy Lids is patented and is covered by multiple patents, according to CCT.

Jar opening is now as easy as pushing a button, which reduces the required torque by 40%the new Eeasy Lid debuts with Darci's brand pasta sauce.

 

Ever have a problem opening a jar because a lid’s on so tight that it requires a tool, rubber glove or another person just to get the darn thing off?

That frustration may be a thing of the past: Consumer Convenience Technologies unveiled today the launch of its new Eeasy Lid, which makes opening a vacuum-sealed jar up to 40% easier with just the push of a button. CCT claims that the breakthrough is the first significant innovation in the metal jar lid industry in 75 years.

The patented Eeasy Lid allows consumers to vent a jar by simply pressing a button on the lid, which opens a tiny slit that breaks the seal and releases the vacuum. After use, the lid is reclosed by pressing the button from the inside of the lid to help keep the product fresh and prevent spills.

“I’ve worked closely with CCT to thoroughly test Eeasy Lid for its suitability to ensure safety and stability of food products hot-filled into glass containers,” says Bruno Xavier, PhD., a processing authority at Cornell University. “Through our studies, we’ve found that these lids provide a stable hermetic seal. By pressing the center of the Eeasy Lid, users simply release the vacuumed air, making it easy to open—ultimately providing a better experience to consumers, as indicated by the data provided by the manufacturer.”

Push-button jar lid redefines ‘easy open’

Consumers can tell whether their product has been tampered with by looking at the button on the Eeasy Lid, which will be inverted if it has been previously opened. 

The Eeasy Lid was invented by Pete Stodd, managing partner at CCT and president of Container Development Ltd., which developed the CDL end, used in 75% of beverage cans manufactured worldwide. Stodd was approached by a friend who couldn’t open a jar due to breast cancer, so he spent the next eight years developing the Eeasy Lid.

“About a third of consumers can’t open a jar, so the Eeasy Lid expands the market for manufacturers and retailers by making the product useable to everyone,” adds James Bach, CCT managing partner.

CCT can produce Eeasy Lids, which are intended for use on vacuum-sealed glass jars, in sizes from 58mm-82mm.

The lids are a seamless drop-in for current capping/packaging lines, according to president Brandon Bach, who tells Packaging Digest, “the Eeasy button is below the chime, enabling the lid to be applied by cappers.”

 

Production and launch

CCT will begin producing CT versions of the Eeasy Lid in December before they appear in stores in January when Pennsylvania-based Boyer’s markets will use the CT Eeasy Lids on its Darci’s brand pasta sauce in all 18 stores. The product will be produced and packaged by Stello Foods and distributed by Cavallaro Foods.

“After working in the food packaging industry for more than 30 years, it is nice to see an advancement in packaging design as simple and effective as the Eeasy Lid,” says Nickki Stello, owner of Stello Foods. “I could easily see this lid becoming the preferred jar lid packaging solution for the industry, accepted and appreciated by all consumers.”

Coca-Cola taps recycled marine plastic for beverage packaging

Array ( [post_title] => Coca-Cola taps recycled marine plastic for beverage packaging [post_content] =>

The Coca-Cola Co., as part of its sustainable packaging focus, recently proved that plastic fished from waterways and plucked from beaches can be recycled into bottles suitable for soft drinks.

The company last month announced production of a sample quantity of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles containing 25% recycled marine plastic—purportedly the first food-grade bottles produced using this kind of post-consumer recycled material.

The 300 sample marine bottles exemplify a closed-loop system for transforming previously unrecyclable PET back into food/beverage packaging, and the Coca-Cola project provides proof of concept for the approach.

To retrieve marine plastic and recycle it into resin for the sample bottles, Coca-Cola partnered with Ioniqa Technologies, based in the Netherlands; Indorama Ventures, in Thailand; and Spain’s Mares Circulares (Circular Seas) marine-debris collection/recycling collaboration.

Mares Circulares, which is partially funded by The Coca-Cola Foundation, collected post-consumer plastic for the project from the Mediterranean Sea and beaches. Volunteers helped clean up 84 beaches in Spain and Portugal, and fisherman from 12 ports removed marine waste from the water.

Ioniqa used its proprietary “enhanced recycling” method to break down the marine plastic into its molecular building blocks. With Ioniqa’s technology, waste plastic is physically shredded, and the pieces are placed in a chemical solution that purifies and depolymerizes the plastic.

The resulting liquid is dried, and resin manufactures can use the powder to make transparent, high-quality PET resin. In the case of the marine bottles, Indorama was the resin manufacturer.

During the summer of 2019, Ioniqa commenced operation of an enhanced recycling plant in the Netherlands. The plant processes otherwise non-recyclable (non-marine) PET and has an output capacity of 10,000 metric tons per year. Coca-Cola has announced that it plans to use this type of recycled content in some bottles in the near future.

Bruno Van Gompel, technical and supply chain director, Coca-Cola Western Europe, answers Packaging Digest’s questions about the sample bottles.

 

Please describe the enhanced recycling technology used to make the sample marine bottles.

Van Gompel: Enhanced recycling is a chemical process, also known as depolymerization, where the PET plastic is converted back into its original building blocks, otherwise known as monomers. This effectively pushes a reset button. The process also restores the molecular strength to the monomers and removes any potential contamination.

The monomers can then be rebuilt via polymerization to create food-grade PET plastic. This means that lower-grade plastics—like marine plastic—can be recovered and upcycled back into food-grade packaging materials, with their value returned, not just once but again and again.

 

How is Ioniqa's recycling technology different from, or better than, other chemical-recycling methods?

Van Gompel: The benefit of enhanced recycling is that, like similar depolymerization technologies, it is capable of handling complex waste—such as colored bottles, non-food containers or polyester-based fibers, much of which would currently end up in incinerators or landfill—and converting it into monomers. But it doesn’t have to to go back to basic petrochemicals to create these monomers, hence requiring less energy than chemical processes based on pyrolysis or gasification.

WestPack-2020  WestPack 2020: Ideas. Education. New Partners. Feb. 11-13

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Through Ioniqa’s process, which uses smart fluids and a unique separation process to split the PET chains back into their two basic molecules and then reconstitutes them, low-end feedstock is upcycled into “virgin” raw material that can be used to create new, high-end PET through polymerization, suitable for any and all uses, including food-grade plastics.

 

What is the protocol for ensuring that the plastic created via this recycling method is food-safe?

Van Gompel: Our first concern is always to ensure consumer safety for our products. We will not put anything in the market that is not safe. So, from an industrial-chemistry perspective, the technology has to prove itself to be industrially sound through rigorous testing.

 

Does Coca-Cola have a timeline for commercial use of marine bottles?

Van Gompel: Our sample marine-litter bottles have been developed as a proof of concept for what the technology may achieve in time. While we now know this can be done, there is a great deal more work needed before marine litter can be collected and recycled at the scale needed for commercialization.

The enhanced recycling technology is still in its very early stages, and in the immediate term we will work with Ioniqa and Indorama to introduce at a commercial scale by using waste streams from existing recyclers, including previously unrecyclable plastics and lower-quality recyclables. From 2020, we plan to include this enhanced recycled content in some of our bottles.

The enhanced recycling technology is still in its very early stages, and in the immediate term we will work with Ioniqa and Indorama to introduce at a commercial scale by using waste streams from existing recyclers, including previously unrecyclable plastics and lower-quality recyclables. From 2020, we plan to include this enhanced recycled content in some of our bottles.

The Coca-Cola Co., as part of its sustainable packaging focus, recently proved that plastic fished from waterways and plucked from beaches can be recycled into bottles suitable for soft drinks.

The company last month announced production of a sample quantity of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles containing 25% recycled marine plastic—purportedly the first food-grade bottles produced using this kind of post-consumer recycled material.

The 300 sample marine bottles exemplify a closed-loop system for transforming previously unrecyclable PET back into food/beverage packaging, and the Coca-Cola project provides proof of concept for the approach.

To retrieve marine plastic and recycle it into resin for the sample bottles, Coca-Cola partnered with Ioniqa Technologies, based in the Netherlands; Indorama Ventures, in Thailand; and Spain’s Mares Circulares (Circular Seas) marine-debris collection/recycling collaboration.

Mares Circulares, which is partially funded by The Coca-Cola Foundation, collected post-consumer plastic for the project from the Mediterranean Sea and beaches. Volunteers helped clean up 84 beaches in Spain and Portugal, and fisherman from 12 ports removed marine waste from the water.

Ioniqa used its proprietary “enhanced recycling” method to break down the marine plastic into its molecular building blocks. With Ioniqa’s technology, waste plastic is physically shredded, and the pieces are placed in a chemical solution that purifies and depolymerizes the plastic.

The resulting liquid is dried, and resin manufactures can use the powder to make transparent, high-quality PET resin. In the case of the marine bottles, Indorama was the resin manufacturer.

During the summer of 2019, Ioniqa commenced operation of an enhanced recycling plant in the Netherlands. The plant processes otherwise non-recyclable (non-marine) PET and has an output capacity of 10,000 metric tons per year. Coca-Cola has announced that it plans to use this type of recycled content in some bottles in the near future.

Bruno Van Gompel, technical and supply chain director, Coca-Cola Western Europe, answers Packaging Digest’s questions about the sample bottles.

 

Please describe the enhanced recycling technology used to make the sample marine bottles.

Van Gompel: Enhanced recycling is a chemical process, also known as depolymerization, where the PET plastic is converted back into its original building blocks, otherwise known as monomers. This effectively pushes a reset button. The process also restores the molecular strength to the monomers and removes any potential contamination.

The monomers can then be rebuilt via polymerization to create food-grade PET plastic. This means that lower-grade plastics—like marine plastic—can be recovered and upcycled back into food-grade packaging materials, with their value returned, not just once but again and again.

 

How is Ioniqa's recycling technology different from, or better than, other chemical-recycling methods?

Van Gompel: The benefit of enhanced recycling is that, like similar depolymerization technologies, it is capable of handling complex waste—such as colored bottles, non-food containers or polyester-based fibers, much of which would currently end up in incinerators or landfill—and converting it into monomers. But it doesn’t have to to go back to basic petrochemicals to create these monomers, hence requiring less energy than chemical processes based on pyrolysis or gasification.

Through Ioniqa’s process, which uses smart fluids and a unique separation process to split the PET chains back into their two basic molecules and then reconstitutes them, low-end feedstock is upcycled into “virgin” raw material that can be used to create new, high-end PET through polymerization, suitable for any and all uses, including food-grade plastics.

 

What is the protocol for ensuring that the plastic created via this recycling method is food-safe?

Van Gompel: Our first concern is always to ensure consumer safety for our products. We will not put anything in the market that is not safe. So, from an industrial-chemistry perspective, the technology has to prove itself to be industrially sound through rigorous testing.

 

Does Coca-Cola have a timeline for commercial use of marine bottles?

Drug companies turn to blow-fill-seal for vaccines and more

Array ( [post_title] => Drug companies turn to blow-fill-seal for vaccines and more [post_content] =>

Healthy demand for unit-dose pharmaceutical packaging, particularly for aseptically filled liquid medications, is creating an opportunity for blow-fill-seal (BFS) technology suppliers and their customers.

Used for the aseptic packaging of ophthalmic products, respiratory (inhaled) medications, biologics and vaccines and other injectable drugs, BFS technology enables continuous, automated forming, filling and sealing of unit-dose liquid packs.

Package formats include ampoules, vials and bottles, and product sterility can be assured throughout the process. Benefits of BFS, versus glass packaging, include reduced waste and breakage and the elimination of product preservatives, which patients may be allergic to.

BFS technology is expected to reach a market value of US$2 billion in 2019 and experience a compound annual growth rate of about 8% between 2019 and 2029, with North America and Western Europe representing the largest markets for BFS pharmaceutical products, according to a recent technology report from Future Market Insights (FMI).

FMI identifies Catalent Inc., The Ritedose Corp., Unipharma LLC and Unither Pharmaceuticals as the “tier 1 players” in BFS technology globally. Of these, Catalent, Ritedose and Unipharma are headquartered in the United States.

Unither, which is based in France, runs two high-speed unit-dose BFS lines in France plus one in Rochester, NY. The company operates a commercial office and laboratory in China, as well. Also in Asia Pacific, UK-based GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) fills BFS vaccines at GSK Australia’s Boronia facility, near Melbourne.

Pharmaceutical companies in other regions are also making strides in the global BFS market. For example, India-based Sentiss, a provider of BFS ophthalmic and inhaled medications, says it is the first Indian company to commercialize BFS eye drops in the Russian market. Sentiss uses the technology to create unit-dose and multidose packaging.

Partnership brings recyclable black plastic to light

Array ( [post_title] => Partnership brings recyclable black plastic to light [post_content] =>

Henkel and masterbatch producer Ampacet have joined forces to develop a recyclable black plastic. The carbon-free black plastic alternative enables containers to be recyclable more readily than previously possible in conventional recycling streams.

Traditionally, black plastic thwarts recycling technology because infrared (IR) cameras used to scan containers cannot sort the containers, so black packages don’t get sorted and end up in landfills instead. The REC-NIR Black masterbatch is designed to be near-infrared (NIR) transparent to allow scanning by NIR technology for automated sorting at recovery facilities. Colin Zenger, Henkel’s sustainable packaging head, laundry and homecare sector, says the material can be sorted with little or no modifications at facilities.

“If sorting is done by hand, there is no change with the new masterbatch,” he says. “But it helps the NIR scanner in automated sorting to see and detect the bottle correctly.”

To recycle containers made with the masterbatch, consumers must first remove the shrink label. Henkel has designed a zipper to incorporate in the labels of such packages. According to Zenger, the company is rolling out targeted information to educate consumers about how to remove the label before processing.

The REC-NIR Black material has made its retail debut in Bref toilet cleaning products, produced by Greiner Packaging. The cleaning products are sold in under various brands internationally. Michael Frick, global key account director, Greiner Packaging, says the material works in line with the company’s sustainability goals.

“We’re constantly working to improve product recyclability, so naturally we’re delighted to see innovations like this one,” Frick says.

Cyclos-HTP, a German organization that classifies, evaluates and certifies packaging recyclability, confirmed the effectiveness of the new black plastic in undecorated containers. Additionally, Henkel confirmed packaging using the material, after the perforated sleeve is removed, can easily be sorted and recycled.

“In Greiner Packaging, we’re pleased to have found a competent project partner we’ve been able to work with to implement this innovative packaging concept,” says Frick.

A member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (which promotes increased sustainability in various fields), Greiner Packaging has pledged to make 100% of its packaging 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.

Henkel and masterbatch producer Ampacet have joined forces to develop a recyclable black plastic. The carbon-free black plastic alternative enables containers to be recyclable more readily than previously possible in conventional recycling streams.

Traditionally, black plastic thwarts recycling technology because infrared (IR) cameras used to scan containers cannot sort the containers, so black packages don’t get sorted and end up in landfills instead. The REC-NIR Black masterbatch is designed to be near-infrared (NIR) transparent to allow scanning by NIR technology for automated sorting at recovery facilities. Colin Zenger, Henkel’s sustainable packaging head, laundry and homecare sector, says the material can be sorted with little or no modifications at facilities.

“If sorting is done by hand, there is no change with the new masterbatch,” he says. “But it helps the NIR scanner in automated sorting to see and detect the bottle correctly.”

To recycle containers made with the masterbatch, consumers must first remove the shrink label. Henkel has designed a zipper to incorporate in the labels of such packages. According to Zenger, the company is rolling out targeted information to educate consumers about how to remove the label before processing.

The REC-NIR Black material has made its retail debut in Bref toilet cleaning products, produced by Greiner Packaging. The cleaning products are sold in under various brands internationally. Michael Frick, global key account director, Greiner Packaging, says the material works in line with the company’s sustainability goals.

“We’re constantly working to improve product recyclability, so naturally we’re delighted to see innovations like this one,” Frick says.

Cyclos-HTP, a German organization that classifies, evaluates and certifies packaging recyclability, confirmed the effectiveness of the new black plastic in undecorated containers. Additionally, Henkel confirmed packaging using the material, after the perforated sleeve is removed, can easily be sorted and recycled.

“In Greiner Packaging, we’re pleased to have found a competent project partner we’ve been able to work with to implement this innovative packaging concept,” says Frick.

A member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (which promotes increased sustainability in various fields), Greiner Packaging has pledged to make 100% of its packaging 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.

Without better labeling, compostable packaging will struggle

Array ( [post_title] => Without better labeling, compostable packaging will struggle [post_content] =>

San Francisco is often the poster child of compostable packaging. Polystyrene is banned, and restaurants are required to use compostable or recyclable containers and utensils. With supportive regulations, savvy consumers and access to composting infrastructure, compostable packaging should be a slam dunk, right?

Yet a recent interview with the San Francisco Examiner, a representative from Recology, the city’s recycling and composting service provider, confirmed that many compostable plastics were being pulled out by sorters and landfilled. Why? The problem is how these products are labeled. 

Most compostable items, especially compostable plastics, look exactly like their non-compostable counterparts. Clamshell containers, lids and utensils are simply embossed, often on the bottom of the item, to identify them as compostable while claims on the products themselves vary widely, from “Compostable” to “Biodegradable” to statements about sourcing like “Made from corn.” Green or brown stripes may be added to larger items, but non-compostable items can also be marked with green or brown symbols. 

Currently, compostable bags are the only category with best practices starting to take hold, like the use of green tinting, the words “Certified Compostable” in prominent text (1-inch or larger), and certification logos like BPI and OK Home Compost. For other product categories, especially clamshells and utensils, whether it’s actually compostable is anybody’s guess. 

 

New laws push labeling of more products

New bills aim to address this confusion head-on. Washington’s HB 1569 (effective July 2020) and California’s proposed (but recently tabled) SB 54 outline labeling requirements for all compostable products, including product packaging, food serviceware and bags. Washington’s bill requires that all compostable products be labeled in a way that is “easily and readily identifiable” and include a certification logo or the word “Compostable.”

____________________________________________________________________________________________

These two new bills build on earlier versions of compostable labeling laws, which only address compostable bags. For instance, Maryland’s HB 1349, effective since October 2017, sets strict requirements for the use of certification logos, wording and green tinting on bags but not on other compostable plastics or compostable products. Ultimately, both types of laws aim to eliminate greenwashing, reduce consumer confusion and aid composters in identifying which products coming into their facility are actually compostable. 

 

In the absence of clear labels, composters err on the side of caution

At Recology’s composting facility and at facilities across the country, sorters pull out unmarked, plastic-looking items to avoid contamination. Even compostable paper coffee cups are likely to be removed for fear they’re conventional paper cups lined with plastic. A compostable plastic may be embossed with a certification logo or the words “Certified Compostable,” but no sorter is going to be able to spot this subtle labeling. 

Washington’s bill adds “processing facilities” to the list of stakeholders who need to be able to identify compostable products. This further limits what is considered “easily identifiable”—a consumer disposing of a cup may spot the green stripe, but composters and sorters trying to identify materials in a truck or within a pile will require the largest and most obvious labeling, far beyond what most products have today. 

 

Consumers are increasingly frustrated with compostability claims 

Consumers (as well as non-profits and media) are starting to put compostability in quotations—as in, “These bowls are ‘compostable’ but are actually landfilled.” More than a punctuation preference, this indicates that for many people, the claim (even when supported by third-party certification) doesn’t mean much unless the item actually gets composted.

The first and largest barrier to composting is the lack of widespread industrial facilities and curbside collection programs. But even in regions with composting infrastructure, like the Bay Area, consumers are frustrated that compostable packaging isn’t getting composted. If composters can’t identify what’s compostable and are pulling these items out of their trucks and composting piles, then it’s not truly compostable in the eyes of many consumers. Larger, more standardized product labeling is essential for identification, and by extension, consumer buy-in. 

 

Compostable products need standardized labeling 

Labeling laws will continue to evolve in the direction of requiring clear labeling for all products. Washington’s law is the first evidence of this. And if California passes a similar bill, manufacturers will need to tackle labeling in a key geographic market.

It’s not just food serviceware—CPG brands venturing into compostability for categories like compostable wrappers should pay close attention, learning from the pitfalls of compostable plastics and designing packaging a composter can quickly and easily spot. 

Proposed and passed labeling bills refer to “industry standards” for labeling, which don’t yet exist—there’s no standard color to represent compostability, for instance. Manufacturers should collaborate pre-competitively to develop these standards, since better labeling benefits everyone. It eliminates bad actors making unverified compostability claims, and it allows consumers and composters alike to spot and sort compostable products more quickly and easily, increasing the chance these products will actually be composted.

Array ( [post_title] => Without better labeling, compostable packaging will struggle [post_content] =>

San Francisco is often the poster child of compostable packaging. Polystyrene is banned, and restaurants are required to use compostable or recyclable containers and utensils. With supportive regulations, savvy consumers and access to composting infrastructure, compostable packaging should be a slam dunk, right?

Yet a recent interview with the San Francisco Examiner, a representative from Recology, the city’s recycling and composting service provider, confirmed that many compostable plastics were being pulled out by sorters and landfilled. Why? The problem is how these products are labeled. 

Most compostable items, especially compostable plastics, look exactly like their non-compostable counterparts. Clamshell containers, lids and utensils are simply embossed, often on the bottom of the item, to identify them as compostable while claims on the products themselves vary widely, from “Compostable” to “Biodegradable” to statements about sourcing like “Made from corn.” Green or brown stripes may be added to larger items, but non-compostable items can also be marked with green or brown symbols. 

Currently, compostable bags are the only category with best practices starting to take hold, like the use of green tinting, the words “Certified Compostable” in prominent text (1-inch or larger), and certification logos like BPI and OK Home Compost. For other product categories, especially clamshells and utensils, whether it’s actually compostable is anybody’s guess. 

 

New laws push labeling of more products

New bills aim to address this confusion head-on. Washington’s HB 1569 (effective July 2020) and California’s proposed (but recently tabled) SB 54 outline labeling requirements for all compostable products, including product packaging, food serviceware and bags. Washington’s bill requires that all compostable products be labeled in a way that is “easily and readily identifiable” and include a certification logo or the word “Compostable.”

These two new bills build on earlier versions of compostable labeling laws, which only address compostable bags. For instance, Maryland’s HB 1349, effective since October 2017, sets strict requirements for the use of certification logos, wording and green tinting on bags but not on other compostable plastics or compostable products. Ultimately, both types of laws aim to eliminate greenwashing, reduce consumer confusion and aid composters in identifying which products coming into their facility are actually compostable. 

 

In the absence of clear labels, composters err on the side of caution

At Recology’s composting facility and at facilities across the country, sorters pull out unmarked, plastic-looking items to avoid contamination. Even compostable paper coffee cups are likely to be removed for fear they’re conventional paper cups lined with plastic. A compostable plastic may be embossed with a certification logo or the words “Certified Compostable,” but no sorter is going to be able to spot this subtle labeling. 

Washington’s bill adds “processing facilities” to the list of stakeholders who need to be able to identify compostable products. This further limits what is considered “easily identifiable”—a consumer disposing of a cup may spot the green stripe, but composters and sorters trying to identify materials in a truck or within a pile will require the largest and most obvious labeling, far beyond what most products have today. 

 

Consumers are increasingly frustrated with compostability claims 

Consumers (as well as non-profits and media) are starting to put compostability in quotations—as in, “These bowls are ‘compostable’ but are actually landfilled.” More than a punctuation preference, this indicates that for many people, the claim (even when supported by third-party certification) doesn’t mean much unless the item actually gets composted.

The first and largest barrier to composting is the lack of widespread industrial facilities and curbside collection programs. But even in regions with composting infrastructure, like the Bay Area, consumers are frustrated that compostable packaging isn’t getting composted. If composters can’t identify what’s compostable and are pulling these items out of their trucks and composting piles, then it’s not truly compostable in the eyes of many consumers. Larger, more standardized product labeling is essential for identification, and by extension, consumer buy-in. 

 

Compostable products need standardized labeling 

Labeling laws will continue to evolve in the direction of requiring clear labeling for all products. Washington’s law is the first evidence of this. And if California passes a similar bill, manufacturers will need to tackle labeling in a key geographic market.

It’s not just food serviceware—CPG brands venturing into compostability for categories like compostable wrappers should pay close attention, learning from the pitfalls of compostable plastics and designing packaging a composter can quickly and easily spot. 

Proposed and passed labeling bills refer to “industry standards” for labeling, which don’t yet exist—there’s no standard color to represent compostability, for instance. Manufacturers should collaborate pre-competitively to develop these standards, since better labeling benefits everyone. It eliminates bad actors making unverified compostability claims, and it allows consumers and composters alike to spot and sort compostable products more quickly and easily, increasing the chance these products will actually be composted.

Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality

Array ( [post_title] => Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality [post_content] =>

Savvy brands like Nestlé are leveraging the sustainable packaging benefits that AR technology offers along with potent consumer engagement.

 

We now live in an age where consumers are holding businesses to a higher standard of environmental consciousness. An Accenture survey concluded that 62% of Americans want companies to take a stand on issues like sustainability. The good news is that more brands are beginning to listen. “Brand purpose” is the topic du jour in most leadership meetings looking to meet the demands of their consumers around sustainability, environmental impact and social responsibility. It’s not just consumers but the investment community too who are taking a good look at a company’s sustainability credentials as a benchmark of shareholder and stakeholder value. To an extent, we have the digital age to thank for that. A brand’s image may have been built over decades, but its reputation can be tarnished in a matter of minutes by users holding them to account for their actions or, in this case, inaction.

Against this context, Burger King decided to remove all plastic toys from their Junior Meals for kids. It’s a win every time a larger corporation takes a significant step toward changing its business model to reduce its environmental impact. While this is indeed highly commendable, it’s also a savvy move for the business—it draws positive goodwill towards the brand in taking a stance on an issue that matters to people and doesn't mean the end of driving sales and brand engagement through marketing promotion.

It’s also an opportunity to get creative with their existing assets (their packaging) and connect with consumers on that device that has become the evolutionary appendage we seemingly can’t live without, our smartphones. It also takes out an incredibly costly and organizationally intensive manufacturing, inventory management and distribution headache for the giveaways. Literally everyone wins here.

There’s another important and concurrent narrative at play. Specifically, there are three events that have shifted the way businesses and brands are approaching their mobile strategy in general:

...and that’s before the introduction of 5G in 2020, which will make the speed and power of devices and use of the camera and AR greater still.

 

One of the biggest questions and opportunities for brands and businesses has become “what’s your camera strategy and how can you leverage it to drive sales and deeper connections with your end users through more relevant experiences and better data?”

This has huge implications for retailers and consumer-packaged goods brands as it effectively gives them a totally new way to think about their retail estate and packaging. Both can transcend passive print into an always-on media and digital discovery channel serving up contextually relevant information at two key moments of assistance: pre-purchase and at point of consumption.

The potential to build a new owned and direct media channel with your most valuable audience is enormous--it’s a golden opportunity to gather data on their usage patterns like never before and in a General Data Protection Regulation-supportive, permissive manner of course! All without a media fee payable to a third party.

There are a number of big multinational brands already leading the charge in connected packaging with the likes of Kellogg’s, Nestlé, Unilever, Pez and Puma.

Next: More than delivering surprise and delight

 

Connected Packaging and AR are being used not only for spatial storytelling both to surprise and delight users, but also crucially inform and instruct when it comes to imparting information about a brand’s purpose, provenance and sustainability.

What we’re seeing is that these use cases are dramatically increasing the level of active brand engagement and click-through rates versus other media. And the data captured is helping brands take other important decisions about their new product development, marketing and media strategies.

The science supports it, too. The neuroscience of AR speaks to delivering higher levels of attention (almost double) and all-important memory recall (75% higher) versus other channels. 

AR-enabled packaging, with its infinite scalability and eco-friendly implementation, can achieve both the reduction in environmental impact while maintaining brand impact and user engagement. Grab a smartphone and turn packaging into a digital discovery channel, increasing transparency about product provenance and ingredients and creating meaningful moments of assistance for all the family, all while driving purchase intent, loyalty and repeat sales.

Nestlé’s cereal division serves as an example of a business adapting to a changing market as well as adopting new brand engagement methods using AR. The old marketing idiom of cereal promotions was all about including toys and FGWP’s (Free Gift With Purchase) in the boxes. Nestlé realized they could achieve the same effect through digital rewards using AR whilst reducing their environmental footprint and overall costs. This was most recently brought to life in their AR campaign on-pack across 30+ markets centered on the new Lion King movie, coinciding with its release. Engagement was simple: customers scanned the back of the pack to enjoy three different educational puzzles and mini activities and unlocked video clips from the forthcoming movie.

 

In truth, there’s nothing new here, but the real shift is in taking existing tried-and-tested marketing models and making them relevant for the digital age. The fantastic by-product of this move is a simple way to decrease a brand’s environmental impact, increase engagement and interactivity while reducing cost and getting better metrics on campaign performance.

Brands are waking up to the potential available to them right on their packaging, which is their greatest owned media opportunity and data resource. A thoughtful AR campaign can turn mundane, wasteful packaging into a launchpad for an educational, entertaining, and rewarding experience whilst reducing waste. Give the most staunch environmentalist customer a look at the behind-the-scenes process of creating your product, make a meaningful connection with a customer so that they want to continue to engage with your product through a rewards program, or create a game that children can enjoy through a smartphone instead of creating more plastic bound for landfill. AR makes all of this possible using only some creativity and thoughtfulness.

The tech bit is easy. Congratulations to Burger King for doing the right thing for the planet, their customers and their business. Building out a connected pack camera strategy for the business in the new age of spatial storytelling is the next step.

The fantastic by-product of this move is a simple way to decrease a brand’s environmental impact, increase engagement and interactivity while reducing cost and getting better metrics on campaign performance.

Brands are waking up to the potential available to them right on their packaging, which is their greatest owned media opportunity and data resource. A thoughtful AR campaign can turn mundane, wasteful packaging into a launchpad for an educational, entertaining, and rewarding experience whilst reducing waste. Give the most staunch environmentalist customer a look at the behind-the-scenes process of creating your product, make a meaningful connection with a customer so that they want to continue to engage with your product through a rewards program, or create a game that children can enjoy through a smartphone instead of creating more plastic bound for landfill. AR makes all of this possible using only some creativity and thoughtfulness.

The tech bit is easy. Congratulations to Burger King for doing the right thing for the planet, their customers and their business. Building out a connected pack camera strategy for the business in the new age of spatial storytelling is the next step.

Savvy brands like Nestlé are leveraging the sustainable packaging benefits that AR technology offers along with potent consumer engagement.

 

We now live in an age where consumers are holding businesses to a higher standard of environmental consciousness. An Accenture survey concluded that 62% of Americans want companies to take a stand on issues like sustainability. The good news is that more brands are beginning to listen. “Brand purpose” is the topic du jour in most leadership meetings looking to meet the demands of their consumers around sustainability, environmental impact and social responsibility. It’s not just consumers but the investment community too who are taking a good look at a company’s sustainability credentials as a benchmark of shareholder and stakeholder value. To an extent, we have the digital age to thank for that. A brand’s image may have been built over decades, but its reputation can be tarnished in a matter of minutes by users holding them to account for their actions or, in this case, inaction.

Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality

Against this context, Burger King decided to remove all plastic toys from their Junior Meals for kids. It’s a win every time a larger corporation takes a significant step toward changing its business model to reduce its environmental impact. While this is indeed highly commendable, it’s also a savvy move for the business—it draws positive goodwill towards the brand in taking a stance on an issue that matters to people and doesn't mean the end of driving sales and brand engagement through marketing promotion.

It’s also an opportunity to get creative with their existing assets (their packaging) and connect with consumers on that device that has become the evolutionary appendage we seemingly can’t live without, our smartphones. It also takes out an incredibly costly and organizationally intensive manufacturing, inventory management and distribution headache for the giveaways. Literally everyone wins here.

There’s another important and concurrent narrative at play. Specifically, there are three events that have shifted the way businesses and brands are approaching their mobile strategy in general:

...and that’s before the introduction of 5G in 2020, which will make the speed and power of devices and use of the camera and AR greater still.

 

One of the biggest questions and opportunities for brands and businesses has become “what’s your camera strategy and how can you leverage it to drive sales and deeper connections with your end users through more relevant experiences and better data?”

This has huge implications for retailers and consumer-packaged goods brands as it effectively gives them a totally new way to think about their retail estate and packaging. Both can transcend passive print into an always-on media and digital discovery channel serving up contextually relevant information at two key moments of assistance: pre-purchase and at point of consumption.

The potential to build a new owned and direct media channel with your most valuable audience is enormous--it’s a golden opportunity to gather data on their usage patterns like never before and in a General Data Protection Regulation-supportive, permissive manner of course! All without a media fee payable to a third party.

There are a number of big multinational brands already leading the charge in connected packaging with the likes of Kellogg’s, Nestlé, Unilever, Pez and Puma.

Next: More than delivering surprise and delight

 

Connected Packaging and AR are being used not only for spatial storytelling both to surprise and delight users, but also crucially inform and instruct when it comes to imparting information about a brand’s purpose, provenance and sustainability.

What we’re seeing is that these use cases are dramatically increasing the level of active brand engagement and click-through rates versus other media. And the data captured is helping brands take other important decisions about their new product development, marketing and media strategies.

The science supports it, too. The neuroscience of AR speaks to delivering higher levels of attention (almost double) and all-important memory recall (75% higher) versus other channels. 

AR-enabled packaging, with its infinite scalability and eco-friendly implementation, can achieve both the reduction in environmental impact while maintaining brand impact and user engagement. Grab a smartphone and turn packaging into a digital discovery channel, increasing transparency about product provenance and ingredients and creating meaningful moments of assistance for all the family, all while driving purchase intent, loyalty and repeat sales.

Nestlé’s cereal division serves as an example of a business adapting to a changing market as well as adopting new brand engagement methods using AR. The old marketing idiom of cereal promotions was all about including toys and FGWP’s (Free Gift With Purchase) in the boxes. Nestlé realized they could achieve the same effect through digital rewards using AR whilst reducing their environmental footprint and overall costs. This was most recently brought to life in their AR campaign on-pack across 30+ markets centered on the new Lion King movie, coinciding with its release.

Savvy brands like Nestlé are leveraging the sustainable packaging benefits that AR technology offers along with potent consumer engagement.

 

We now live in an age where consumers are holding businesses to a higher standard of environmental consciousness. An Accenture survey concluded that 62% of Americans want companies to take a stand on issues like sustainability. The good news is that more brands are beginning to listen. “Brand purpose” is the topic du jour in most leadership meetings looking to meet the demands of their consumers around sustainability, environmental impact and social responsibility. It’s not just consumers but the investment community too who are taking a good look at a company’s sustainability credentials as a benchmark of shareholder and stakeholder value. To an extent, we have the digital age to thank for that. A brand’s image may have been built over decades, but its reputation can be tarnished in a matter of minutes by users holding them to account for their actions or, in this case, inaction.

Against this context, Burger King decided to remove all plastic toys from their Junior Meals for kids. It’s a win every time a larger corporation takes a significant step toward changing its business model to reduce its environmental impact. While this is indeed highly commendable, it’s also a savvy move for the business—it draws positive goodwill towards the brand in taking a stance on an issue that matters to people and doesn't mean the end of driving sales and brand engagement through marketing promotion.

It’s also an opportunity to get creative with their existing assets (their packaging) and connect with consumers on that device that has become the evolutionary appendage we seemingly can’t live without, our smartphones. It also takes out an incredibly costly and organizationally intensive manufacturing, inventory management and distribution headache for the giveaways. Literally everyone wins here.

There’s another important and concurrent narrative at play. Specifically, there are three events that have shifted the way businesses and brands are approaching their mobile strategy in general:

...and that’s before the introduction of 5G in 2020, which will make the speed and power of devices and use of the camera and AR greater still.

Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality 

One of the biggest questions and opportunities for brands and businesses has become “what’s your camera strategy and how can you leverage it to drive sales and deeper connections with your end users through more relevant experiences and better data?”

This has huge implications for retailers and consumer-packaged goods brands as it effectively gives them a totally new way to think about their retail estate and packaging. Both can transcend passive print into an always-on media and digital discovery channel serving up contextually relevant information at two key moments of assistance: pre-purchase and at point of consumption.

The potential to build a new owned and direct media channel with your most valuable audience is enormous--it’s a golden opportunity to gather data on their usage patterns like never before and in a General Data Protection Regulation-supportive, permissive manner of course! All without a media fee payable to a third party.

There are a number of big multinational brands already leading the charge in connected packaging with the likes of Kellogg’s, Nestlé, Unilever, Pez and Puma.

Next: More than delivering surprise and delight

Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality

 

Connected Packaging and AR are being used not only for spatial storytelling both to surprise and delight users, but also crucially inform and instruct when it comes to imparting information about a brand’s purpose, provenance and sustainability.

What we’re seeing is that these use cases are dramatically increasing the level of active brand engagement and click-through rates versus other media. And the data captured is helping brands take other important decisions about their new product development, marketing and media strategies.

Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality

The science supports it, too. The neuroscience of AR speaks to delivering higher levels of attention (almost double) and all-important memory recall (75% higher) versus other channels. 

AR-enabled packaging, with its infinite scalability and eco-friendly implementation, can achieve both the reduction in environmental impact while maintaining brand impact and user engagement. Grab a smartphone and turn packaging into a digital discovery channel, increasing transparency about product provenance and ingredients and creating meaningful moments of assistance for all the family, all while driving purchase intent, loyalty and repeat sales.

Nestlé’s cereal division serves as an example of a business adapting to a changing market as well as adopting new brand engagement methods using AR. The old marketing idiom of cereal promotions was all about including toys and FGWP’s (Free Gift With Purchase) in the boxes. Nestlé realized they could achieve the same effect through digital rewards using AR whilst reducing their environmental footprint and overall costs. This was most recently brought to life in their AR campaign on-pack across 30+ markets centered on the new Lion King movie, coinciding with its release. Engagement was simple: customers scanned the back of the pack to enjoy three different educational puzzles and mini activities and unlocked video clips from the forthcoming movie.

Why sustainably-minded brands use augmented reality 

In truth, there’s nothing new here, but the real shift is in taking existing tried-and-tested marketing models and making them relevant for the digital age. The fantastic by-product of this move is a simple way to decrease a brand’s environmental impact, increase engagement and interactivity while reducing cost and getting better metrics on campaign performance.

Brands are waking up to the potential available to them right on their packaging, which is their greatest owned media opportunity and data resource. A thoughtful AR campaign can turn mundane, wasteful packaging into a launchpad for an educational, entertaining, and rewarding experience whilst reducing waste. Give the most staunch environmentalist customer a look at the behind-the-scenes process of creating your product, make a meaningful connection with a customer so that they want to continue to engage with your product through a rewards program, or create a game that children can enjoy through a smartphone instead of creating more plastic bound for landfill. AR makes all of this possible using only some creativity and thoughtfulness.

Why the automotive industry needs sustainable packaging

Array ( [post_title] => Why the automotive industry needs sustainable packaging [post_content] =>

The automotive industry has led technological transformations in the past. As international attention turns towards sustainability—with the threat of climate change pressing down on all nations, regardless of the politics behind the notion—the industry seems once again prepared to lead the charge towards change.

Waste tires and fossil fuel consumption weigh heavily on the industry. It is packaging, however, that has arisen in recent talks surrounding automotive sustainability. Packing continues to be an overlooked element that permeates the automotive industry’s supply chain. Now, different manufacturers have expressed interest in the pursuit of reusable packaging.

This packaging would ideally last multiple trips while providing consistent protection to the parts that car manufacturers are in constant need of. The realities of this sustainable practice, however, are more complicated than they may initially seem.

 

Take, make, dispose

The industrialized creation process currently operates on the philosophy of “take, make, dispose.” Plants take in the materials they need to create a product. Once those materials have been used to their full ability, the plant disposes of the waste through landfills and alternative means. At this point, a mere 14% of the plastic used by the automotive industry is recycled, while 40% finds its way to landfills. Plastic, unlike a number of other materials, does not degrade quickly. In fact, the plastic that is currently being sent to landfills around the world is predicted to finally degrade after a thousand years.

Plastic’s impact on the environment is insurmountably significant. At the present moment, there is an island of plastic waste larger than France floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. That plastic not only compromises the ecosystems of millions of sea-dwelling creatures, but it actively kills them when they come into contact with it. Sea turtles, for example, who would normally filter sea water out of their stomachs, are now choking on the plastic they take in while searching for food.

 

The industry’s ambitions

Correcting the vast amount of plastic waste that the automotive industry currently produces will take time. However, a number of manufacturers are aware of rising concerns surrounding the subject. In turn, those manufacturers are moving to reduce their plastic waste output.

Indorama Ventures, for example, has recently partnered with Loop Industries with sustainable plastic in mind. The two corporations intend to collaborate on the production of sustainable polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin and polyester fibers. It’s possible that the partnership could produce samples of their product within the first few months of 2020. [10-30-19 UPDATE: According to Loop Industries, “We expect the joint facility to be commissioned by the end of calendar year 2020.”]

This partnership is only one example of the sustainable efforts being made by international automotive manufacturers. A number of such corporations have declared their intentions to rely entirely on recycled plastic within the next few years.

 

Packaging limitations

It remains to be seen, however, if those goals are attainable. At this moment, a number of obstacles stand in the way of future plastic sustainability.

Collection of used plastic, in particular, remains a challenge for those parties interested in recycling it responsibly. The process of recycling plastic—even of getting it into the proper hands—is exceptionally complicated, as the recycling process requires several more steps than disposal via landfill. UPS and GreenBiz, in fact, declared that the operational costs of plastic collection alone may deter parties from investing in the idea.

It seems that actively recycling plastics and creating sustainable alternatives to the materials would require a significant reworking of public recycling awareness. Not only that, but the corporations that have declared their intentions to forgo unsustainable plastics would have to make public investments in the practice for it to take off. While it seems, then, that the automotive industry is headed in this direction, it remains to be seen whether or not the practice will stick.

 

Developmental progress

That said, the automotive industry is not alone in its goal of adopting recyclable plastics. The UK Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy is invested in the reputational benefits that the creation of recyclable plastic could bring. The department has proposed smart labeling as a solution to the problem of plastic collection. With appropriate labels and a connection to a database oriented to the Internet of Things (IoT), plastics could find their way to the appropriate recycling facility with little change to the way human employees do their jobs.

Perhaps this means that a future of smart labels is coming to the automotive industry. As it stands, the desire to operate more sustainably is there. Now, the industry only needs the means and the commitment to make recyclable packaging a reality.
