Array ( [post_title] => 3 packaging concerns in 2019 for pharma/medtech [post_content] =>

Digital healthcare, the opioid crisis and updates to ISO standards for medical packaging headlined our pharmaceutical and medical coverage in 2019. Based on page views, here are the top three articles of the year related to pharmaceutical and medical device packaging:

ISO-medical-packaging-updates

3. Notable changes to ISO medical packaging standards explained

In 2020, the EU Medical Device Regulation will go into effect. Here in the U.S., ISO 11607 and ISO TS 16775 standards for packaging of terminally sterilized medical devices are being updated.

Notable changes include:

• A provision that directs packagers to complete a documented usability evaluation for aseptic presentation in either a real or simulated-use environment.

• The stipulation that designs allow for easy and safe handling and…prevent microbial contamination, and that the integrity of that packaging is clearly evident to the final user.

• Formal inclusion of risk management.

• A new annex on ways to differentiate a sterile barrier system from protective packaging.

• A new section on visual inspection.

• A section on design changes and validation.

• A revised section on process validation that includes the new concept of a process specification.

• A new annex on environmental aspects according to ISO and CEN guidance.

 

Opioid-packaging

2. 3 packaging designs that tackle the opioid crisis

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking packaging solutions—such as fixed-quantity, unit-of-use blister packs—to help prevent opioid abuse as allowed by the new Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities regulation, which is better known as the SUPPORT Act.

One of the last articles published in 2018 presented three new examples in this area.

 

Digital-healthcare

1. How digital healthcare and packaging benefit users

The best-read healthcare packaging related article of 2019 on PackagingDigest.com looks at how the trend of digital devices in healthcare will impact the packaging requirements. Two pharmacists on the Faculty of Pharmacy at Clermont-Ferrand in France thoroughly explain the market drivers, then focus on primary and secondary packaging that can enhance distribution safety, improve compliance and perhaps offer an alternative for drug manufacturing.

Other popular articles from co-author Dr. Pascale Gauthier, who is known for her impeccably researched and detailed reports, include:

“5 advances and packaging trends in the beauty universe” published in May 2017.

“The Asian influence and digital mutation in cosmetics packaging” published in July 2018.

Notable changes include:

• A provision that directs packagers to complete a documented usability evaluation for aseptic presentation in either a real or simulated-use environment.

• The stipulation that designs allow for easy and safe handling and…prevent microbial contamination, and that the integrity of that packaging is clearly evident to the final user.

• Formal inclusion of risk management.

• A new annex on ways to differentiate a sterile barrier system from protective packaging.

• A new section on visual inspection.

• A section on design changes and validation.

• A revised section on process validation that includes the new concept of a process specification.

• A new annex on environmental aspects according to ISO and CEN guidance.

 

3 packaging concerns in 2019 for pharma/medtech

2. 3 packaging designs that tackle the opioid crisis

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking packaging solutions—such as fixed-quantity, unit-of-use blister packs—to help prevent opioid abuse as allowed by the new Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities regulation, which is better known as the SUPPORT Act.

One of the last articles published in 2018 presented three new examples in this area.

1. How digital healthcare and packaging benefit users

The best-read healthcare packaging related article of 2019 on PackagingDigest.com looks at how the trend of digital devices in healthcare will impact the packaging requirements. Two pharmacists on the Faculty of Pharmacy at Clermont-Ferrand in France thoroughly explain the market drivers, then focus on primary and secondary packaging that can enhance distribution safety, improve compliance and perhaps offer an alternative for drug manufacturing.

Other popular articles from co-author Dr. Pascale Gauthier, who is known for her impeccably researched and detailed reports, include:

“5 advances and packaging trends in the beauty universe” published in May 2017.

“The Asian influence and digital mutation in cosmetics packaging” published in July 2018.

Packaging ‘basics’ popular with healthcare professionals

You need a strong knowledge base to build a career on. In the highly regulated field of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, we can help. Several “Packaging 101” articles scored well with readers this year, earning mention as some of the top topics of 2019 even though they were published in earlier years.

Here are the five notables that can help you succeed in your profession:

Anti-counterfeit packaging

5. What you need in anti-counterfeit packaging today and why

While not limited to use in pharmaceutical and medical markets, anti-counterfeiting features for packages used by these markets help protect patients and profits.

In March 2018, experts from leading security microstructure technology company Optaglio summarized critical general guidelines, starting with three basic strategies for product protection from counterfeiters:

1. Use law protection and enforcement to prevent counterfeiters from getting to the markets.

2. Track and trace each individual product from production through distributors and stores...up to second hand shops.

3. Add protective elements so that a customer can differentiate between genuine and fake on his/her own.

They recommend you use anti-counterfeiting packaging solutions that are discriminable, self-destructive and unique.

 

Medical-packaging-development

4. 3 steps for designing the ideal medical device packaging system

In this January 2017 article, an executive with CleanCut Technologies LLC (now Oliver Healthcare Packaging) breaks down a trio of tips for developing a successful package for your medical device:

1. Start packaging design early in the product development process.

2. Properly size packaging components.

3. Use a robust testing protocol.

Go now and create!

 

Sample-Size-for-Testing

3. Determining a valid sample size for package testing

Surprisingly, there is no clear guidance from regulatory agencies or standards bodies on the number of packages medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers should test to guard against failures and prove design integrity.

This December 2017 article helps packaging professionals determine and justify their sample size decisions.

The first step in selecting an adequate sample size is to calculate risk. A common approach to calculating risk is known as a Risk Priority Number (RPN), which is explained in this article.

Then also consider the cost of manufacturing the product and the complexity of the packaging design.

2. Strength and integrity, part two: Basics of seal-strength testing

This June 2002 article (1) explains what seal-strength testing for medical device packaging is and (2) outlines the different types of testing addressed in ISO 11607.

(1) “Seal-strength testing evaluates the mechanical strength of the seal, ensuring proper material bonding to maintain package integrity throughout package life. Data acquired through testing can be used to validate the package design as adequate for maintenance of integrity, to monitor process performance, and to confirm shelf-life performance.”

(2) Pull it apart: “The tensile seal-strength test (ASTM F88)…produces specific force results for peelable packages. However, only single sections of a seal can be evaluated at one time, providing no information on whole-package integrity and slowing testing.”

Blow it up: “Inflation seal-strength testing (ASTM F1140 and F2054), including burst, creep, and creep-to-failure (CTF) testing, requires pressurizing the entire package and measuring the peak rupture pressure (burst test) or the time to failure at a constantly held pressure (creep and CTF). These tests provide a whole-package minimum seal strength and are equally applicable to peelable and nonpeelable seals.”

Restrain it: “Restrained package testing (ASTM F2054) is a refinement that has several advantages. It has been shown to define the minimum seal-strength area of pouches more consistently. It provides more-consistent loading on the package seal, and it correlates well with tensile seal-strength tests in defining the minimum seal-strength area.”

It’s necessary to keep up with changes in the regulation, as this April 2018 article does: “Harmonizing ISO 11607 with the EU's Medical Device Regulations”

1. Medical packaging 101: Basics medical device companies need to know

Our top pharma/medical device packaging evergreen article of 2019 is also the one in this list published most recently. This June 2018 piece covers the design, sterilization, testing requirements and validation processes medical device companies need to consider when tackling a packaging project.

Bottom line: “Because packaging involves many design and testing aspects, it is best to start its development as soon as possible in the product’s development.”

Good advice.

1. Medical packaging 101: Basics medical device companies need to know

Our top pharma/medical device packaging evergreen article of 2019 is also the one in this list published most recently. This June 2018 piece covers the design, sterilization, testing requirements and validation processes medical device companies need to consider when tackling a packaging project.

Bottom line: “Because packaging involves many design and testing aspects, it is best to start its development as soon as possible in the product’s development.”

Good advice.

You need a strong knowledge base to build a career on. In the highly regulated field of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, we can help. Several “Packaging 101” articles scored well with readers this year, earning mention as some of the top topics of 2019 even though they were published in earlier years.

Here are the five notables that can help you succeed in your profession:

Packaging ‘basics’ popular with healthcare professionals

5. What you need in anti-counterfeit packaging today and why

While not limited to use in pharmaceutical and medical markets, anti-counterfeiting features for packages used by these markets help protect patients and profits.

In March 2018, experts from leading security microstructure technology company Optaglio summarized critical general guidelines, starting with three basic strategies for product protection from counterfeiters:

1. Use law protection and enforcement to prevent counterfeiters from getting to the markets.

2. Track and trace each individual product from production through distributors and stores...up to second hand shops.

3. Add protective elements so that a customer can differentiate between genuine and fake on his/her own.

They recommend you use anti-counterfeiting packaging solutions that are discriminable, self-destructive and unique.

 

Packaging ‘basics’ popular with healthcare professionals

4. 3 steps for designing the ideal medical device packaging system

In this January 2017 article, an executive with CleanCut Technologies LLC (now Oliver Healthcare Packaging) breaks down a trio of tips for developing a successful package for your medical device:

1. Start packaging design early in the product development process.

2. Properly size packaging components.

3. Use a robust testing protocol.

Go now and create!

 

Packaging ‘basics’ popular with healthcare professionals

3. Determining a valid sample size for package testing

Surprisingly, there is no clear guidance from regulatory agencies or standards bodies on the number of packages medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers should test to guard against failures and prove design integrity.

This December 2017 article helps packaging professionals determine and justify their sample size decisions.

The first step in selecting an adequate sample size is to calculate risk. A common approach to calculating risk is known as a Risk Priority Number (RPN), which is explained in this article.

Then also consider the cost of manufacturing the product and the complexity of the packaging design.

2. Strength and integrity, part two: Basics of seal-strength testing

This June 2002 article (1) explains what seal-strength testing for medical device packaging is and (2) outlines the different types of testing addressed in ISO 11607.

(1) “Seal-strength testing evaluates the mechanical strength of the seal, ensuring proper material bonding to maintain package integrity throughout package life. Data acquired through testing can be used to validate the package design as adequate for maintenance of integrity, to monitor process performance, and to confirm shelf-life performance.”

(2) Pull it apart: “The tensile seal-strength test (ASTM F88)…produces specific force results for peelable packages. However, only single sections of a seal can be evaluated at one time, providing no information on whole-package integrity and slowing testing.”

Blow it up: “Inflation seal-strength testing (ASTM F1140 and F2054), including burst, creep, and creep-to-failure (CTF) testing, requires pressurizing the entire package and measuring the peak rupture pressure (burst test) or the time to failure at a constantly held pressure (creep and CTF). These tests provide a whole-package minimum seal strength and are equally applicable to peelable and nonpeelable seals.”

Restrain it: “Restrained package testing (ASTM F2054) is a refinement that has several advantages. It has been shown to define the minimum seal-strength area of pouches more consistently. It provides more-consistent loading on the package seal, and it correlates well with tensile seal-strength tests in defining the minimum seal-strength area.”

When packaging UV-sensitive drugs, can LED lighting save you changeover time?

Array ( [post_title] => When packaging UV-sensitive drugs, can LED lighting save you changeover time? [post_content] =>

Changing to amber lighting in your packaging production room when running pharmaceuticals that require protection from ultraviolet (UV) light takes valuable time that could be better spent producing good product. Is there an easy alternative? Perhaps so.

During a tour on Sept. 19 of a newly built—and now just completed—pharmaceutical packaging suite at PCI Pharma Services in Rockford, IL (see photo above), an interesting conversation about this subject came up with PCI’s Brian Keesee, vp/general manager, Global Clinical Operations & Supply, and Russell Stevens, director, facilities engineering and maintenance.

As part of its sustainability efforts in building this facility expansion (see photo above), contract manufacturer/packager PCI opted to install LED lights, which don’t emit UV rays. So, there is a possibility that LED lights can save PCI time—hours, in fact—between product/customer changeovers by not having to reset the packaging room with amber lighting for UV-sensitive drugs if allowed by the regulations and by its customers.

I was curious to see if it would be allowed by the Food and Drug Administration and reached out to the regulatory agency with two questions:

1. What are the current regulations regarding amber lighting in a packaging operations room/facility for UV-sensitive drugs?

2. Has the FDA considered updating the current regulations to allow for packaging UV-sensitive drugs in rooms with LED lighting? Why or why not?

Charlie Kohler in FDA’s Trade Press Office replied: “The CGMP [current Good Manufacturing Practices] regulations only require that ‘adequate lighting shall be provided in all areas’ (see 21 CFR 211.44) and do not prohibit or prescribe the use of any type of lighting. Manufacturers may use any lighting that satisfies the CGMP regulations, which means the lighting used must be adequate to enable operators to perform their manufacturing responsibilities, and special lighting conditions or controls be used when needed to preserve product quality.”

Basically: Yes, LED lighting is suitable for packaging areas handling pharmaceuticals that need to be protected from UV light, according to the FDA.

Earlier today, Dec. 4, 2019, PCI announced completion of this latest plant expansion—which includes four high-potent compound capable suites, three new secondary packaging areas, three new coolers and a freezer—to handle specialty drug products for cancer and hormonal therapies, as well as other treatments.

During a tour on Sept. 19 of a newly built—and now just completed—pharmaceutical packaging suite at PCI Pharma Services in Rockford, IL (see photo above), an interesting conversation about this subject came up with PCI’s Brian Keesee, vp/general manager, Global Clinical Operations & Supply, and Russell Stevens, director, facilities engineering and maintenance.

When packaging UV-sensitive drugs, can LED lighting save you changeover time?

As part of its sustainability efforts in building this facility expansion (see photo above), contract manufacturer/packager PCI opted to install LED lights, which don’t emit UV rays. So, there is a possibility that LED lights can save PCI time—hours, in fact—between product/customer changeovers by not having to reset the packaging room with amber lighting for UV-sensitive drugs if allowed by the regulations and by its customers.

I was curious to see if it would be allowed by the Food and Drug Administration and reached out to the regulatory agency with two questions:

1. What are the current regulations regarding amber lighting in a packaging operations room/facility for UV-sensitive drugs?

2. Has the FDA considered updating the current regulations to allow for packaging UV-sensitive drugs in rooms with LED lighting? Why or why not?

Charlie Kohler in FDA’s Trade Press Office replied: “The CGMP [current Good Manufacturing Practices] regulations only require that ‘adequate lighting shall be provided in all areas’ (see 21 CFR 211.44) and do not prohibit or prescribe the use of any type of lighting. Manufacturers may use any lighting that satisfies the CGMP regulations, which means the lighting used must be adequate to enable operators to perform their manufacturing responsibilities, and special lighting conditions or controls be used when needed to preserve product quality.”

Basically: Yes, LED lighting is suitable for packaging areas handling pharmaceuticals that need to be protected from UV light, according to the FDA.

Earlier today, Dec. 4, 2019, PCI announced completion of this latest plant expansion—which includes four high-potent compound capable suites, three new secondary packaging areas, three new coolers and a freezer—to handle specialty drug products for cancer and hormonal therapies, as well as other treatments.

Molson Coors shrinks plastic packaging’s Beer Print

Array ( [post_title] => Molson Coors shrinks plastic packaging’s Beer Print [post_content] =>

The brewer talks sustainable packaging strategies and tactics including 3-layer plastic bottles, paper sleeve cartons, fiber-based multipack rings and more.

 

Molson Coors Brewing Co. introduced in August a set of new global packaging goals to reduce plastics in its packaging, aiming for 100% of its packaging to be reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025.

“As a global brewer with a strong family heritage, we have always taken seriously our responsibility to brew a more sustainable future,” said Molson Coors CEO Mark Hunter. “Plastic waste poses a clear environmental challenge, and as a consumer-packaged goods company, we play an important role in helping to solve the global waste crisis.”

The company’s new packaging strategy has four main goals:

  1. Innovate: Make 100% of packaging reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. The strategy includes plans to move from a five-layer PET bottle to a three-layer bottle in the U.S. to enhance its recyclability.
  2. Accelerate: Incorporate at least 30% recycled content in plastics packaging. While plastics comprise less than 2% of global packaging mix by weight, the company seeks to achieve at least 30% recycled content in its PET bottles, plastic film wrap and plastic rings.
  3. Collaborate: Improve recycling infrastructure and support a better recycling system for communities, government and industries.
  4. Climate: Reduce carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, which includes both internal changes and external partnerships.

Managing the company’s entire sustainability program is Kim Marotta, global senior director of corporate responsibility, who points out that founder Bill Coors’ mantra of “waste is a resource out of place” has long been part of the company’s DNA. She’s well-suited for the heady task, having been hired in 2004 to develop a Corporate Social Responsibility strategy for Miller Brewing Co. during the MillerCoors U.S. years before being promoted to lead CSR globally at Molson Coors. “The purchase of MillerCoors by Molson Coors at the end of 2016 was a better opportunity to enhance our sustainability strategy including for packaging,” she says.

That lead in 2017 to the introduction of the “Beer Print 2025” strategy, the company’s vision for the environmental, social and economic space. “Beer Print is the notion that every time a beer is lifted up, there’s an imprint left behind,” Marotta explains. “We want to make sure it’s a positive one on our communities and environment.”

It also meant addressing internally the external outcry against a packaging material that is widely under siege, plastics.

“There’s heavy pressure to eliminate the use of single-use plastics,” Marotta explains.“India was the first country to announce abandoning single-use plastics, which starts in 2020. Similar public sentiment and regulations are taking shape in the European Union that were soon followed by Canada as it moved faster toward abandoning plastics. San Francisco banned plastic bottles in their airport, and in many places plastic bags cost consumers extra.

“As a consumer packaged goods company and global citizen, we need to tackle those issues related to the plastic crisis with new ideas, innovation, capital and new costs of goods sold if the solutions aren’t there. We’re working with our suppliers to increase recycled content in our plastic rings and shrink wrap and in PET bottle—it’s all about what works for consumers in local markets. Some plastics will remain, while others will be switched for other materials. We’re coming at it from different angles and making a lot of progress.”

Among those promising angles that Marotta is most excited about is a development that she calls “a major breakthrough in plastic beer bottles.”

Next: A better-to-recycle PET bottle and shrinking shrink wrap use

Currently the company uses a 5-layer oxygen barrier beer bottle in 32- (shown) and 40-oz sizes, but the shortcoming is that “in some municipalities those bottles are hard to sort and recycle,” Marotta acknowledges, which is why Molson Coors has given that packaging a lot of attention and now has good news to share.

“We’ve been working with our supply stream for several years looking at what new technology that will help us be sustainable, protect the quality of our beer and also help recycling in our communities,” says Marotta. “We’re excited to announce we are moving from 5-layer to 3-layer bottle in the U.S. that will help us to achieve our reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable goal because the new bottle’s reduced nylon barrier layer that makes it much easier to recycle at a municipal recycling facility.”

The production of a 3-layer bottle requires a more precise barrier than that for the current-5-layer barrier bottle, Marotta points out, but the company’s R&D team determined that it’s possible through a new co-injection approach.

All that’s left is consumer testing to confirm the results they expect “and then we can continue moving forward with it,” she adds.

Paired with that new plastic bottle structure is the news that Molson Coors partnered with Loop Industries to reduce the reliance on virgin polymers through a chemical process that converts recycled PET into an rPET bottle with the same durability and quality as 100% virgin PET. Loop’s patented technology depolymerizes no- and low-value waste PET plastic and polyester fiber including plastic bottles, textiles and more into the base monomers. Those monomers are processed into Loop-branded PET resin and polyester fiber suitable for food-grade packaging.

“We’re really excited about that opportunity with Loop as a step toward a circular economy,” she enthuses.

And that’s just the start of things.

Mariotta appreciates that the fundamental challenge to any plastic reducing or elimination program is to replace plastic with an alternative than can perform as well. And one of those basic plastic packaging formats is shrink wrap used to bundle multipacks.

“Plastics’ appeal for a very long time has been for consumer friendliness and ease of use,” she admits. “We’re testing the paper-based alternative to learn about the interaction with consumers and what works in the U.S.”

That particular initiative comes under the Accelerate goal. Marotta discloses that before April 2021 Coors Beer will switch to 100% recyclable paperboard sleeves. “We made a commitment to remove plastic wrap by 2020 from large multipacks replacing with kraft paper, a new alternative that’s been in the market in UK with Coors Light and Carling.”

 

In the U.S., a pilot for one of the company’s craft brands, Colorado Native, is the first of the company’s brands to test a new plastic-free, fiber-based six-pack ring for beverage cans. The eco-friendly rings are made from post-industrial recycled fiber and are 100% bio-based, recyclable and compostable in commercial composting facilities.

It’s not a one-size fits all proposition.

“While we try for global solutions, consumers trends and needs and regulations are different by market and location,” she says. “We want to respond and address these needs appropriately.”

This past summer is early in testing phase.

“It’s a different look for the packaging, and it’s quite obvious to consumers with the switch from plastic to fiber that a change has been made.”

In November, Marotta shared the results with Packaging Digest: “The Colorado Native fiber rings are performing well, and we plan on converting 100% of our plastic rings to fiber on all of our Colorado Native beers.”

The company is also testing a bioplastic ring unitizer for cans.

 

Next: Carbon footprint reduction and more

This year Molson Coors launched a new target to cut the carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, based on a 2016 baseline. At 26%, packaging is the largest source of carbon dioxide across the company’s value chain.

One venue to achieve that is for all 28 of the company’s brewing and major manufacturing facilities send zero waste to landfill by 2025. Marotta reports that during 2018 another three facilities achieved that target, bringing the company’s current total of zero-waste plants to 17.

Other methods to lowering the carbon footprint is to increase the recycled content of glass and PET bottles and aluminum cans and to lightweight packaging.

As part of the packaging emission reductions program, the brewer held summits with its Top 100 global packaging suppliers to discuss new innovations, new technology and learn what the vendors were doing to reduce their own carbon footprint. For example, packaging suppliers Ball Corp. and Crown have committed to using 100% renewable electricity. “What they do affects Molson’s Value chain,” Marotta notes.

The company, which also operates one of the largest solar arrays in the U.S., is exploring carbon credit offsets as part of an aggressive goal with what Marotta calls a large “menu” of tactics to hit 50% emission reductions within its operations by 2025. These include energy- and self-sufficiency.

Molson Coors recognizes that for its and like programs by others to be regionally successful requires numerous participant stakeholders. In reaction, the brewer joined The Recycling Partnership, a group of 45 leading brands promoting more jobs in the circular economy, more material recovery and stronger, more equitable communities within the U.S.

Foundational to these and other efforts is grassroots participation by communities in reducing litter and collecting and increasing recycled content.

“We need to help solve the plastics waste problem as a company for our own products including how we use new technology and innovative solutions, but we also need to work in our communities and collaborate with other organizations—the government, nonprofit groups, and other key stakeholders,” Marotta explains. “We want to help take any confusion and obstacles to success out of recycling.”

And it’s not just for plastics packaging.

“We’re working in Denver with Momentum Recycling where glass recycling in municipalities is not a problem,” she says. “We have a joint venture with Rocky Mountain Bottling Company Recycle Colorado, an Owens-Illinois company, that recently over six months targeted places that were hard even for glass bottles to be recycled, like including apartments, bars and restaurants. We were successful to get the material to RMRC’s other locations so that recycled content could be made into new glass. Moving forward, we are looking at local solutions that focus on recycling infrastructure.”

For Molson Coors, the Beer Print 2025 plan is the current itinerary on a sustainable journey the company has traveled for decades.

“We have a foundation to work from—but there’s a lot more work for us to do as a company and for consumers to do in general,” says Marotta.

One venue to achieve that is for all 28 of the company’s brewing and major manufacturing facilities send zero waste to landfill by 2025. Marotta reports that during 2018 another three facilities achieved that target, bringing the company’s current total of zero-waste plants to 17.

Other methods to lowering the carbon footprint is to increase the recycled content of glass and PET bottles and aluminum cans and to lightweight packaging.

As part of the packaging emission reductions program, the brewer held summits with its Top 100 global packaging suppliers to discuss new innovations, new technology and learn what the vendors were doing to reduce their own carbon footprint. For example, packaging suppliers Ball Corp. and Crown have committed to using 100% renewable electricity. “What they do affects Molson’s Value chain,” Marotta notes.

The company, which also operates one of the largest solar arrays in the U.S., is exploring carbon credit offsets as part of an aggressive goal with what Marotta calls a large “menu” of tactics to hit 50% emission reductions within its operations by 2025. These include energy- and self-sufficiency.

Molson Coors recognizes that for its and like programs by others to be regionally successful requires numerous participant stakeholders. In reaction, the brewer joined The Recycling Partnership, a group of 45 leading brands promoting more jobs in the circular economy, more material recovery and stronger, more equitable communities within the U.S.

Foundational to these and other efforts is grassroots participation by communities in reducing litter and collecting and increasing recycled content.

“We need to help solve the plastics waste problem as a company for our own products including how we use new technology and innovative solutions, but we also need to work in our communities and collaborate with other organizations—the government, nonprofit groups, and other key stakeholders,” Marotta explains. “We want to help take any confusion and obstacles to success out of recycling.”

And it’s not just for plastics packaging.

“We’re working in Denver with Momentum Recycling where glass recycling in municipalities is not a problem,” she says. “We have a joint venture with Rocky Mountain Bottling Company Recycle Colorado, an Owens-Illinois company, that recently over six months targeted places that were hard even for glass bottles to be recycled, like including apartments, bars and restaurants. We were successful to get the material to RMRC’s other locations so that recycled content could be made into new glass. Moving forward, we are looking at local solutions that focus on recycling infrastructure.”

For Molson Coors, the Beer Print 2025 plan is the current itinerary on a sustainable journey the company has traveled for decades.

“We have a foundation to work from—but there’s a lot more work for us to do as a company and for consumers to do in general,” says Marotta.

The brewer talks sustainable packaging strategies and tactics including 3-layer plastic bottles, paper sleeve cartons, fiber-based multipack rings and more.

 

Molson Coors Brewing Co. introduced in August a set of new global packaging goals to reduce plastics in its packaging, aiming for 100% of its packaging to be reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025.

“As a global brewer with a strong family heritage, we have always taken seriously our responsibility to brew a more sustainable future,” said Molson Coors CEO Mark Hunter. “Plastic waste poses a clear environmental challenge, and as a consumer-packaged goods company, we play an important role in helping to solve the global waste crisis.”

The company’s new packaging strategy has four main goals:

  1. Innovate: Make 100% of packaging reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. The strategy includes plans to move from a five-layer PET bottle to a three-layer bottle in the U.S. to enhance its recyclability.
  2. Accelerate: Incorporate at least 30% recycled content in plastics packaging. While plastics comprise less than 2% of global packaging mix by weight, the company seeks to achieve at least 30% recycled content in its PET bottles, plastic film wrap and plastic rings.
  3. Collaborate: Improve recycling infrastructure and support a better recycling system for communities, government and industries.
  4. Climate: Reduce carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, which includes both internal changes and external partnerships.

Molson Coors shrinks plastic packaging’s Beer Print

Managing the company’s entire sustainability program is Kim Marotta, global senior director of corporate responsibility, who points out that founder Bill Coors’ mantra of “waste is a resource out of place” has long been part of the company’s DNA. She’s well-suited for the heady task, having been hired in 2004 to develop a Corporate Social Responsibility strategy for Miller Brewing Co. during the MillerCoors U.S. years before being promoted to lead CSR globally at Molson Coors. “The purchase of MillerCoors by Molson Coors at the end of 2016 was a better opportunity to enhance our sustainability strategy including for packaging,” she says.

That lead in 2017 to the introduction of the “Beer Print 2025” strategy, the company’s vision for the environmental, social and economic space. “Beer Print is the notion that every time a beer is lifted up, there’s an imprint left behind,” Marotta explains. “We want to make sure it’s a positive one on our communities and environment.”

It also meant addressing internally the external outcry against a packaging material that is widely under siege, plastics.

“There’s heavy pressure to eliminate the use of single-use plastics,” Marotta explains.“India was the first country to announce abandoning single-use plastics, which starts in 2020. Similar public sentiment and regulations are taking shape in the European Union that were soon followed by Canada as it moved faster toward abandoning plastics. San Francisco banned plastic bottles in their airport, and in many places plastic bags cost consumers extra.

“As a consumer packaged goods company and global citizen, we need to tackle those issues related to the plastic crisis with new ideas, innovation, capital and new costs of goods sold if the solutions aren’t there. We’re working with our suppliers to increase recycled content in our plastic rings and shrink wrap and in PET bottle—it’s all about what works for consumers in local markets. Some plastics will remain, while others will be switched for other materials. We’re coming at it from different angles and making a lot of progress.”

Among those promising angles that Marotta is most excited about is a development that she calls “a major breakthrough in plastic beer bottles.”

Next: A better-to-recycle PET bottle and shrinking shrink wrap use

Currently the company uses a 5-layer oxygen barrier beer bottle in 32- (shown) and 40-oz sizes, but the shortcoming is that “in some municipalities those bottles are hard to sort and recycle,” Marotta acknowledges, which is why Molson Coors has given that packaging a lot of attention and now has good news to share.

“We’ve been working with our supply stream for several years looking at what new technology that will help us be sustainable, protect the quality of our beer and also help recycling in our communities,” says Marotta. “We’re excited to announce we are moving from 5-layer to 3-layer bottle in the U.S. that will help us to achieve our reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable goal because the new bottle’s reduced nylon barrier layer that makes it much easier to recycle at a municipal recycling facility.”

The production of a 3-layer bottle requires a more precise barrier than that for the current-5-layer barrier bottle, Marotta points out, but the company’s R&D team determined that it’s possible through a new co-injection approach.

All that’s left is consumer testing to confirm the results they expect “and then we can continue moving forward with it,” she adds.

Paired with that new plastic bottle structure is the news that Molson Coors partnered with Loop Industries to reduce the reliance on virgin polymers through a chemical process that converts recycled PET into an rPET bottle with the same durability and quality as 100% virgin PET. Loop’s patented technology depolymerizes no- and low-value waste PET plastic and polyester fiber including plastic bottles, textiles and more into the base monomers. Those monomers are processed into Loop-branded PET resin and polyester fiber suitable for food-grade packaging.

“We’re really excited about that opportunity with Loop as a step toward a circular economy,” she enthuses.

And that’s just the start of things.

Mariotta appreciates that the fundamental challenge to any plastic reducing or elimination program is to replace plastic with an alternative than can perform as well. And one of those basic plastic packaging formats is shrink wrap used to bundle multipacks.

“Plastics’ appeal for a very long time has been for consumer friendliness and ease of use,” she admits. “We’re testing the paper-based alternative to learn about the interaction with consumers and what works in the U.S.”

That particular initiative comes under the Accelerate goal. Marotta discloses that before April 2021 Coors Beer will switch to 100% recyclable paperboard sleeves. “We made a commitment to remove plastic wrap by 2020 from large multipacks replacing with kraft paper, a new alternative that’s been in the market in UK with Coors Light and Carling.”

 

In the U.S., a pilot for one of the company’s craft brands, Colorado Native, is the first of the company’s brands to test a new plastic-free, fiber-based six-pack ring for beverage cans. The eco-friendly rings are made from post-industrial recycled fiber and are 100% bio-based, recyclable and compostable in commercial composting facilities.

It’s not a one-size fits all proposition.

“While we try for global solutions, consumers trends and needs and regulations are different by market and location,” she says. “We want to respond and address these needs appropriately.”

This past summer is early in testing phase.

“It’s a different look for the packaging, and it’s quite obvious to consumers with the switch from plastic to fiber that a change has been made.”

In November, Marotta shared the results with Packaging Digest: “The Colorado Native fiber rings are performing well, and we plan on converting 100% of our plastic rings to fiber on all of our Colorado Native beers.”

The company is also testing a bioplastic ring unitizer for cans.

Marotta discloses that before April 2021 Coors Beer will switch to 100% recyclable paperboard sleeves. “We made a commitment to remove plastic wrap by 2020 from large multipacks replacing with kraft paper, a new alternative that’s been in the market in UK with Coors Light and Carling.”

 

In the U.S., a pilot for one of the company’s craft brands, Colorado Native, is the first of the company’s brands to test a new plastic-free, fiber-based six-pack ring for beverage cans. The eco-friendly rings are made from post-industrial recycled fiber and are 100% bio-based, recyclable and compostable in commercial composting facilities.

It’s not a one-size fits all proposition.

“While we try for global solutions, consumers trends and needs and regulations are different by market and location,” she says. “We want to respond and address these needs appropriately.”

This past summer is early in testing phase.

“It’s a different look for the packaging, and it’s quite obvious to consumers with the switch from plastic to fiber that a change has been made.”

In November, Marotta shared the results with Packaging Digest: “The Colorado Native fiber rings are performing well, and we plan on converting 100% of our plastic rings to fiber on all of our Colorado Native beers.”

The company is also testing a bioplastic ring unitizer for cans.

This year Molson Coors launched a new target to cut the carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, based on a 2016 baseline. At 26%, packaging is the largest source of carbon dioxide across the company’s value chain.

One venue to achieve that is for all 28 of the company’s brewing and major manufacturing facilities send zero waste to landfill by 2025. Marotta reports that during 2018 another three facilities achieved that target, bringing the company’s current total of zero-waste plants to 17.

Other methods to lowering the carbon footprint is to increase the recycled content of glass and PET bottles and aluminum cans and to lightweight packaging.

As part of the packaging emission reductions program, the brewer held summits with its Top 100 global packaging suppliers to discuss new innovations, new technology and learn what the vendors were doing to reduce their own carbon footprint. For example, packaging suppliers Ball Corp. and Crown have committed to using 100% renewable electricity. “What they do affects Molson’s Value chain,” Marotta notes.

The company, which also operates one of the largest solar arrays in the U.S., is exploring carbon credit offsets as part of an aggressive goal with what Marotta calls a large “menu” of tactics to hit 50% emission reductions within its operations by 2025. These include energy- and self-sufficiency.

Molson Coors recognizes that for its and like programs by others to be regionally successful requires numerous participant stakeholders. In reaction, the brewer joined The Recycling Partnership, a group of 45 leading brands promoting more jobs in the circular economy, more material recovery and stronger, more equitable communities within the U.S.

Foundational to these and other efforts is grassroots participation by communities in reducing litter and collecting and increasing recycled content.

“We need to help solve the plastics waste problem as a company for our own products including how we use new technology and innovative solutions, but we also need to work in our communities and collaborate with other organizations—the government, nonprofit groups, and other key stakeholders,” Marotta explains. “We want to help take any confusion and obstacles to success out of recycling.”

And it’s not just for plastics packaging.

“We’re working in Denver with Momentum Recycling where glass recycling in municipalities is not a problem,” she says. “We have a joint venture with Rocky Mountain Bottling Company Recycle Colorado, an Owens-Illinois company, that recently over six months targeted places that were hard even for glass bottles to be recycled, like including apartments, bars and restaurants. We were successful to get the material to RMRC’s other locations so that recycled content could be made into new glass. Moving forward, we are looking at local solutions that focus on recycling infrastructure.”

For Molson Coors, the Beer Print 2025 plan is the current itinerary on a sustainable journey the company has traveled for decades.

“We have a foundation to work from—but there’s a lot more work for us to do as a company and for consumers to do in general,” says Marotta.

The brewer talks sustainable packaging strategies and tactics including 3-layer plastic bottles, paper sleeve cartons, fiber-based multipack rings and more.

 

Molson Coors Brewing Co. introduced in August a set of new global packaging goals to reduce plastics in its packaging, aiming for 100% of its packaging to be reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025.

“As a global brewer with a strong family heritage, we have always taken seriously our responsibility to brew a more sustainable future,” said Molson Coors CEO Mark Hunter. “Plastic waste poses a clear environmental challenge, and as a consumer-packaged goods company, we play an important role in helping to solve the global waste crisis.”

The company’s new packaging strategy has four main goals:

  1. Innovate: Make 100% of packaging reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. The strategy includes plans to move from a five-layer PET bottle to a three-layer bottle in the U.S. to enhance its recyclability.
  2. Accelerate: Incorporate at least 30% recycled content in plastics packaging. While plastics comprise less than 2% of global packaging mix by weight, the company seeks to achieve at least 30% recycled content in its PET bottles, plastic film wrap and plastic rings.
  3. Collaborate: Improve recycling infrastructure and support a better recycling system for communities, government and industries.
  4. Climate: Reduce carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, which includes both internal changes and external partnerships.

Managing the company’s entire sustainability program is Kim Marotta, global senior director of corporate responsibility, who points out that founder Bill Coors’ mantra of “waste is a resource out of place” has long been part of the company’s DNA. She’s well-suited for the heady task, having been hired in 2004 to develop a Corporate Social Responsibility strategy for Miller Brewing Co. during the MillerCoors U.S. years before being promoted to lead CSR globally at Molson Coors. “The purchase of MillerCoors by Molson Coors at the end of 2016 was a better opportunity to enhance our sustainability strategy including for packaging,” she says.

That lead in 2017 to the introduction of the “Beer Print 2025” strategy, the company’s vision for the environmental, social and economic space. “Beer Print is the notion that every time a beer is lifted up, there’s an imprint left behind,” Marotta explains. “We want to make sure it’s a positive one on our communities and environment.”

It also meant addressing internally the external outcry against a packaging material that is widely under siege, plastics.

“There’s heavy pressure to eliminate the use of single-use plastics,” Marotta explains.“India was the first country to announce abandoning single-use plastics, which starts in 2020. Similar public sentiment and regulations are taking shape in the European Union that were soon followed by Canada as it moved faster toward abandoning plastics. San Francisco banned plastic bottles in their airport, and in many places plastic bags cost consumers extra.

“As a consumer packaged goods company and global citizen, we need to tackle those issues related to the plastic crisis with new ideas, innovation, capital and new costs of goods sold if the solutions aren’t there. We’re working with our suppliers to increase recycled content in our plastic rings and shrink wrap and in PET bottle—it’s all about what works for consumers in local markets. Some plastics will remain, while others will be switched for other materials. We’re coming at it from different angles and making a lot of progress.”

Among those promising angles that Marotta is most excited about is a development that she calls “a major breakthrough in plastic beer bottles.”

Currently the company uses a 5-layer oxygen barrier beer bottle in 32- (shown) and 40-oz sizes, but the shortcoming is that “in some municipalities those bottles are hard to sort and recycle,” Marotta acknowledges, which is why Molson Coors has given that packaging a lot of attention and now has good news to share.

“We’ve been working with our supply stream for several years looking at what new technology that will help us be sustainable, protect the quality of our beer and also help recycling in our communities,” says Marotta. “We’re excited to announce we are moving from 5-layer to 3-layer bottle in the U.S. that will help us to achieve our reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable goal because the new bottle’s reduced nylon barrier layer that makes it much easier to recycle at a municipal recycling facility.”

The production of a 3-layer bottle requires a more precise barrier than that for the current-5-layer barrier bottle, Marotta points out, but the company’s R&D team determined that it’s possible through a new co-injection approach.

All that’s left is consumer testing to confirm the results they expect “and then we can continue moving forward with it,” she adds.

Paired with that new plastic bottle structure is the news that Molson Coors partnered with Loop Industries to reduce the reliance on virgin polymers through a chemical process that converts recycled PET into an rPET bottle with the same durability and quality as 100% virgin PET. Loop’s patented technology depolymerizes no- and low-value waste PET plastic and polyester fiber including plastic bottles, textiles and more into the base monomers. Those monomers are processed into Loop-branded PET resin and polyester fiber suitable for food-grade packaging.

“We’re really excited about that opportunity with Loop as a step toward a circular economy,” she enthuses.

And that’s just the start of things.

Mariotta appreciates that the fundamental challenge to any plastic reducing or elimination program is to replace plastic with an alternative than can perform as well. And one of those basic plastic packaging formats is shrink wrap used to bundle multipacks.

“Plastics’ appeal for a very long time has been for consumer friendliness and ease of use,” she admits. “We’re testing the paper-based alternative to learn about the interaction with consumers and what works in the U.S.”

That particular initiative comes under the Accelerate goal.

“We’ve been working with our supply stream for several years looking at what new technology that will help us be sustainable, protect the quality of our beer and also help recycling in our communities,” says Marotta. “We’re excited to announce we are moving from 5-layer to 3-layer bottle in the U.S. that will help us to achieve our reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable goal because the new bottle’s reduced nylon barrier layer that makes it much easier to recycle at a municipal recycling facility.”

The production of a 3-layer bottle requires a more precise barrier than that for the current-5-layer barrier bottle, Marotta points out, but the company’s R&D team determined that it’s possible through a new co-injection approach.

All that’s left is consumer testing to confirm the results they expect “and then we can continue moving forward with it,” she adds.

Paired with that new plastic bottle structure is the news that Molson Coors partnered with Loop Industries to reduce the reliance on virgin polymers through a chemical process that converts recycled PET into an rPET bottle with the same durability and quality as 100% virgin PET. Loop’s patented technology depolymerizes no- and low-value waste PET plastic and polyester fiber including plastic bottles, textiles and more into the base monomers. Those monomers are processed into Loop-branded PET resin and polyester fiber suitable for food-grade packaging.

“We’re really excited about that opportunity with Loop as a step toward a circular economy,” she enthuses.

And that’s just the start of things.

Mariotta appreciates that the fundamental challenge to any plastic reducing or elimination program is to replace plastic with an alternative than can perform as well. And one of those basic plastic packaging formats is shrink wrap used to bundle multipacks.

“Plastics’ appeal for a very long time has been for consumer friendliness and ease of use,” she admits. “We’re testing the paper-based alternative to learn about the interaction with consumers and what works in the U.S.”

That particular initiative comes under the Accelerate goal. Marotta discloses that before April 2021 Coors Beer will switch to 100% recyclable paperboard sleeves. “We made a commitment to remove plastic wrap by 2020 from large multipacks replacing with kraft paper, a new alternative that’s been in the market in UK with Coors Light and Carling.”

 

In the U.S., a pilot for one of the company’s craft brands, Colorado Native, is the first of the company’s brands to test a new plastic-free, fiber-based six-pack ring for beverage cans. The eco-friendly rings are made from post-industrial recycled fiber and are 100% bio-based, recyclable and compostable in commercial composting facilities.

It’s not a one-size fits all proposition.

“While we try for global solutions, consumers trends and needs and regulations are different by market and location,” she says. “We want to respond and address these needs appropriately.”

This past summer is early in testing phase.

“It’s a different look for the packaging, and it’s quite obvious to consumers with the switch from plastic to fiber that a change has been made.”

In November, Marotta shared the results with Packaging Digest: “The Colorado Native fiber rings are performing well, and we plan on converting 100% of our plastic rings to fiber on all of our Colorado Native beers.”

The company is also testing a bioplastic ring unitizer for cans.

This year Molson Coors launched a new target to cut the carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, based on a 2016 baseline. At 26%, packaging is the largest source of carbon dioxide across the company’s value chain.

One venue to achieve that is for all 28 of the company’s brewing and major manufacturing facilities send zero waste to landfill by 2025. Marotta reports that during 2018 another three facilities achieved that target, bringing the company’s current total of zero-waste plants to 17.

Molson Coors shrinks plastic packaging’s Beer Print

Other methods to lowering the carbon footprint is to increase the recycled content of glass and PET bottles and aluminum cans and to lightweight packaging.

As part of the packaging emission reductions program, the brewer held summits with its Top 100 global packaging suppliers to discuss new innovations, new technology and learn what the vendors were doing to reduce their own carbon footprint. For example, packaging suppliers Ball Corp. and Crown have committed to using 100% renewable electricity. “What they do affects Molson’s Value chain,” Marotta notes.

The company, which also operates one of the largest solar arrays in the U.S., is exploring carbon credit offsets as part of an aggressive goal with what Marotta calls a large “menu” of tactics to hit 50% emission reductions within its operations by 2025. These include energy- and self-sufficiency.

Molson Coors recognizes that for its and like programs by others to be regionally successful requires numerous participant stakeholders. In reaction, the brewer joined The Recycling Partnership, a group of 45 leading brands promoting more jobs in the circular economy, more material recovery and stronger, more equitable communities within the U.S.

Foundational to these and other efforts is grassroots participation by communities in reducing litter and collecting and increasing recycled content.

“We need to help solve the plastics waste problem as a company for our own products including how we use new technology and innovative solutions, but we also need to work in our communities and collaborate with other organizations—the government, nonprofit groups, and other key stakeholders,” Marotta explains. “We want to help take any confusion and obstacles to success out of recycling.”

And it’s not just for plastics packaging.

“We’re working in Denver with Momentum Recycling where glass recycling in municipalities is not a problem,” she says. “We have a joint venture with Rocky Mountain Bottling Company Recycle Colorado, an Owens-Illinois company, that recently over six months targeted places that were hard even for glass bottles to be recycled, like including apartments, bars and restaurants. We were successful to get the material to RMRC’s other locations so that recycled content could be made into new glass. Moving forward, we are looking at local solutions that focus on recycling infrastructure.”

For Molson Coors, the Beer Print 2025 plan is the current itinerary on a sustainable journey the company has traveled for decades.

“We have a foundation to work from—but there’s a lot more work for us to do as a company and for consumers to do in general,” says Marotta.

The brewer talks sustainable packaging strategies and tactics including 3-layer plastic bottles, paper sleeve cartons, fiber-based multipack rings and more.

 

Molson Coors Brewing Co. introduced in August a set of new global packaging goals to reduce plastics in its packaging, aiming for 100% of its packaging to be reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025.

“As a global brewer with a strong family heritage, we have always taken seriously our responsibility to brew a more sustainable future,” said Molson Coors CEO Mark Hunter. “Plastic waste poses a clear environmental challenge, and as a consumer-packaged goods company, we play an important role in helping to solve the global waste crisis.”

The company’s new packaging strategy has four main goals:

  1. Innovate: Make 100% of packaging reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. The strategy includes plans to move from a five-layer PET bottle to a three-layer bottle in the U.S. to enhance its recyclability.
  2. Accelerate: Incorporate at least 30% recycled content in plastics packaging. While plastics comprise less than 2% of global packaging mix by weight, the company seeks to achieve at least 30% recycled content in its PET bottles, plastic film wrap and plastic rings.
  3. Collaborate: Improve recycling infrastructure and support a better recycling system for communities, government and industries.
  4. Climate: Reduce carbon emissions from packaging by 26%, which includes both internal changes and external partnerships.

Managing the company’s entire sustainability program is Kim Marotta, global senior director of corporate responsibility, who points out that founder Bill Coors’ mantra of “waste is a resource out of place” has long been part of the company’s DNA. She’s well-suited for the heady task, having been hired in 2004 to develop a Corporate Social Responsibility strategy for Miller Brewing Co. during the MillerCoors U.S. years before being promoted to lead CSR globally at Molson Coors. “The purchase of MillerCoors by Molson Coors at the end of 2016 was a better opportunity to enhance our sustainability strategy including for packaging,” she says.

That lead in 2017 to the introduction of the “Beer Print 2025” strategy, the company’s vision for the environmental, social and economic space. “Beer Print is the notion that every time a beer is lifted up, there’s an imprint left behind,” Marotta explains. “We want to make sure it’s a positive one on our communities and environment.”

It also meant addressing internally the external outcry against a packaging material that is widely under siege, plastics.

Molson Coors shrinks plastic packaging’s Beer Print

“There’s heavy pressure to eliminate the use of single-use plastics,” Marotta explains.“India was the first country to announce abandoning single-use plastics, which starts in 2020. Similar public sentiment and regulations are taking shape in the European Union that were soon followed by Canada as it moved faster toward abandoning plastics. San Francisco banned plastic bottles in their airport, and in many places plastic bags cost consumers extra.

“As a consumer packaged goods company and global citizen, we need to tackle those issues related to the plastic crisis with new ideas, innovation, capital and new costs of goods sold if the solutions aren’t there. We’re working with our suppliers to increase recycled content in our plastic rings and shrink wrap and in PET bottle—it’s all about what works for consumers in local markets. Some plastics will remain, while others will be switched for other materials. We’re coming at it from different angles and making a lot of progress.”

Among those promising angles that Marotta is most excited about is a development that she calls “a major breakthrough in plastic beer bottles.”

4 ways packaging intensifies the shopper’s ‘unboxing’ experience

Array ( [post_title] => 4 ways packaging intensifies the shopper’s ‘unboxing’ experience [post_content] =>

As we approach the holidays, with the unboxing appeal on YouTube and Instagram and influencers driving consumers’ decisions to purchase, there is no doubt packaging is changing the face of ecommerce.

Shining the light on how high-quality packaging will deliver excitement after an anticipated delivery, what is it about unboxing videos that hook us as customers? Here are four ways packaging can power the “unboxing” event.

 

1. Use popular colors

Recently, the “in” color has been Millennial Pink, believed to be inspired by iconic director Wes Anderson’s use of pink in Grand Budapest Hotel or a variant of Apple’s rose-gold iPhone. Popular amongst younger influencers, it is commonly described as peaceful and pure, with an air of retro-kitsch.

Used by the likes of Acne Studios (above) and Glossier, present-day packaging incorporates this dusky pink, in the hopes of appearing on an influencer’s Instagram page. For if they do, their scope will expand to potentially millions of users.

Additionally, many brands are keeping their packaging simple and clean, to appeal to influencers who prefer clean palettes in their posts. This is evident in such brands as Gucci (below) and Céline.

NEXT: Include inviting or witty messages

 

2. Include inviting or witty messages

Product packaging is considered a form of marketing, starting with the exterior messages. As a vehicle for communication, many brands are using their packaging to print witty, insightful or playful messaging, ensuring that their customer opens the product with a positive mindset.

One of the most popular methods of communicative packaging is to announce the arrival of the product. Such witty typography includes “good things await you” or “you’ve been expecting me,” innovated by brands like Warby Parker (above). This method is made for unboxing videos, setting the tone for offline content and therefore the portrayal of the product.

Packaging decorated with slogans and phrases don’t just make an announcement, they can also present positive affirmations or tongue-in-cheek jokes—anything that will make the product stand out. This may reflect the brand’s ethos or compliment the customer, making the packaging easily shareable on social media. 

For example, Swish Beverages (below) is an American wine supplier that incorporates internet slang in its packaging, in the hopes of appealing to younger consumers. By printing phrases like “stay basic,” inspired by the insult turned satirical badge of honor commonly used by young women on the internet, the company successfully targets its audience.

3. Make it personal

Popular beauty brand Bare Minerals (above) changed the game of foundation when it increased its shade range to suit more customers. It could have stopped there, but instead, it enhanced the packaging to feature the purchaser’s name, adding another layer of personalization to the product.

NEXT: Tout transparent ingredients

4. Tout transparent ingredients

Health-and-wellbeing is a hot trend in the world of marketing, due to the recent explosion of press coverage and media posts on the subject. As such, brands like The Ordinary (above) have capitalized on the consumer’s need for organic products, by labeling the ingredients on the bottle and keeping the packaging clean.

Popular beauty brand Bare Minerals (above) changed the game of foundation when it increased its shade range to suit more customers. It could have stopped there, but instead, it enhanced the packaging to feature the purchaser’s name, adding another layer of personalization to the product.

As new trends surface and old trends die out, the world of packaging is in a constant state of flux. One thing is for sure: The collaboration between social media/online content and product boxes will be prevalent for years to come. To stay ahead of the curve, brands need to embrace the value of quality and innovate new ways to package their products.

Nestlé USA packaging specialist details the highly engineered bottle and innovative sleeve label that enabled the development of 100% recyclable sleeve-labeled bottles.

 

Time can deliver a whole new perspective on things.

In July, Nestlé and Starbucks announced the launch of Starbucks Creamers that enabled the Starbucks brand to break into the refrigerated creamer category. The product development combined Starbucks’s popular flavors with Nestlé expertise and leadership in the creamer category. The result? Consumers have a new way to enjoy Starbucks coffee at home.

That was all interesting, but it was essentially a branding breakthrough rather than a packaging innovation.

That changed when it was revealed this month that the Starbucks Creamers PET bottle and shrink-sleeve label are 100% recyclable. This is a first for the Nestlé USA’s packaging portfolio, which seeks to reach 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025. Now that is noteworthy packaging news!

That prompted connecting with Nicole Camilleri, Nestlé’s technical packaging senior development specialist. Before jumping into the packaging details of the achievement, here are some key product highlights:

How complex was the project?  

Camilleri: The project was complex because of the rapid timeline and unique bottle design. We launched Starbucks Creamers in less than a year from inception to shelf, the fastest project with a custom bottle and closure Nestlé USA has implemented. We custom-designed the bottle to emulate carafes from Starbucks and the lid is a one-touch pour, created to truly be opened and closed easily with one hand.

Additionally, the closure, shrink sleeve, corrugate tray and palletization pattern were all custom designs. We did this while challenging ourselves to use new materials and incorporating recyclability into the design, utilizing new technology to incorporate a fully recyclable shrink sleeve.

What are the key materials and for what recycle stream(s)?

Camilleri: The shrink sleeve is made from a PET resin that is PET recycling stream compatible with washable inks. This combination of recyclable base material and washable inks are recognized by the Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR). This shrink-sleeve technology not only allows the consumer to recycle the bottle with the shrink sleeve still attached, but it allows the shrink sleeve material to be captured and recycled within the mechanical recycling process. Both the bottle and the closure are custom designed for Starbucks Creamer. 

The entire bottle including the shrink sleeve can be disposed into single stream recycling and will get sorted into the #1 stream. This makes it easy for a consumer to recycle the bottle in their blue recycling bin without having to manipulate it in any way.

Which packaging component was the most challenging?

Camilleri: Each component had its own unique challenges to overcome for which we found solutions:

What partner/vendors were involved to make this happen?

Camilleri: Eastman Embrace Encore copolyester is used for this recyclable shrink sleeve material. According to Haley Werth, market development manager at Eastman, “We are thrilled to be a part of helping Nestle achieve their goal of 100% recyclable packaging with Eastman Embrace Encore copolyester, an APR Critical Guidance recognized product. We see this as an important milestone in the sustainable transformation of our shrink-film resin portfolio and a model for how Eastman can work with the industry to implement circular solutions that positively impact our world.”

According to American Fuji Seal, “American Fuji Seal is pleased to have commercialized our new film development, RecShrink, with Nestlé to further enhance our sustainability platform. RecShrink is a crystallizable shrink sleeve material, decorated with American Fuji Seal’s washable solvent ink, which allows for film material to be recycled along with PET bottle materials. Historically, shrink-sleeve labels have been deemed a bit of a black eye within the recycling community because of the contamination and their physical properties related to it being a ‘low melt’. Because of the lower melting point, contamination and degradation of the recycled materials can occur. RecShrink is designed with a higher melting point so clumping will not occur in the drying systems, which would diminish rPET quality.”

Are any of these vendors new to the company?

Camilleri: For this design we worked with existing vendors.

 

What potential does Nestle see in this and other recycling technologies?

Camilleri: Nestlé has committed to 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025 and we are making progress toward that goal. Nestlé is developing and implementing many different technologies to address packaging sustainability. We have a large global R&D community including the Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences who are developing new solutions to apply across our portfolio. As with any sustainability innovation that we implement, we are always evaluating how we can reapply technology to other products in our portfolio.

Is this the same sleeve technology used by Nestlé Waters North America for the 100% recyclable bottle/sleeves/caps for the new DC superheroes line?

Camilleri: Nestlé Waters North America is using a different shrink sleeve technology for its new Nestlé Pure Life DC Collection of superhero-themed bottles. Nestlé is actively implementing many different technologies to improve sustainability across our vast packaging portfolio.

In terms of form and function, what were the design goals for the packaging?

Camilleri: Our custom Starbucks Creamer bottle design was rooted in our consumer obsession. The design was inspired by Starbucks brand attributes and the Starbucks café experience, informed by targeted consumer insights and incorporated category norms and functionality. We designed the bottle to include flowing, soft curves and a simple, balanced shape. The closure was designed to mimic carafes found in Starbucks cafés, and to create an easy and mess-free pouring experience. We also designed for the ideal flow from of creamer from the spout and a “click” sound to cue that the lid is closed.

Can you comment on the products’ reception?

Camilleri: While we cannot share specific sales information, we have been very pleased by consumer and retailer response to these new products, which are performing well in-market.

That changed when it was revealed this month that the Starbucks Creamers PET bottle and shrink-sleeve label are 100% recyclable. This is a first for the Nestlé USA’s packaging portfolio, which seeks to reach 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025. Now that is noteworthy packaging news!

That prompted connecting with Nicole Camilleri, Nestlé’s technical packaging senior development specialist. Before jumping into the packaging details of the achievement, here are some key product highlights:

Nestlé and Starbucks partner for recyclable creamer packaging

How complex was the project?  

Camilleri: The project was complex because of the rapid timeline and unique bottle design. We launched Starbucks Creamers in less than a year from inception to shelf, the fastest project with a custom bottle and closure Nestlé USA has implemented. We custom-designed the bottle to emulate carafes from Starbucks and the lid is a one-touch pour, created to truly be opened and closed easily with one hand.

Additionally, the closure, shrink sleeve, corrugate tray and palletization pattern were all custom designs. We did this while challenging ourselves to use new materials and incorporating recyclability into the design, utilizing new technology to incorporate a fully recyclable shrink sleeve.

What are the key materials and for what recycle stream(s)?

Camilleri: The shrink sleeve is made from a PET resin that is PET recycling stream compatible with washable inks. This combination of recyclable base material and washable inks are recognized by the Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR). This shrink-sleeve technology not only allows the consumer to recycle the bottle with the shrink sleeve still attached, but it allows the shrink sleeve material to be captured and recycled within the mechanical recycling process. Both the bottle and the closure are custom designed for Starbucks Creamer.

The entire bottle including the shrink sleeve can be disposed into single stream recycling and will get sorted into the #1 stream. This makes it easy for a consumer to recycle the bottle in their blue recycling bin without having to manipulate it in any way.

Which packaging component was the most challenging?

Camilleri: Each component had its own unique challenges to overcome for which we found solutions:

What partner/vendors were involved to make this happen?

Camilleri: Eastman Embrace Encore copolyester is used for this recyclable shrink sleeve material. According to Haley Werth, market development manager at Eastman, “We are thrilled to be a part of helping Nestle achieve their goal of 100% recyclable packaging with Eastman Embrace Encore copolyester, an APR Critical Guidance recognized product. We see this as an important milestone in the sustainable transformation of our shrink-film resin portfolio and a model for how Eastman can work with the industry to implement circular solutions that positively impact our world.”

According to American Fuji Seal, “American Fuji Seal is pleased to have commercialized our new film development, RecShrink, with Nestlé to further enhance our sustainability platform. RecShrink is a crystallizable shrink sleeve material, decorated with American Fuji Seal’s washable solvent ink, which allows for film material to be recycled along with PET bottle materials. Historically, shrink-sleeve labels have been deemed a bit of a black eye within the recycling community because of the contamination and their physical properties related to it being a ‘low melt’. Because of the lower melting point, contamination and degradation of the recycled materials can occur. RecShrink is designed with a higher melting point so clumping will not occur in the drying systems, which would diminish rPET quality.”

Are any of these vendors new to the company?

Camilleri: For this design we worked with existing vendors.

 

What potential does Nestle see in this and other recycling technologies?

Camilleri: Nestlé has committed to 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025 and we are making progress toward that goal. Nestlé is developing and implementing many different technologies to address packaging sustainability. We have a large global R&D community including the Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences who are developing new solutions to apply across our portfolio. As with any sustainability innovation that we implement, we are always evaluating how we can reapply technology to other products in our portfolio.

Is this the same sleeve technology used by Nestlé Waters North America for the 100% recyclable bottle/sleeves/caps for the new DC superheroes line?

Camilleri: Nestlé Waters North America is using a different shrink sleeve technology for its new Nestlé Pure Life DC Collection of superhero-themed bottles. Nestlé is actively implementing many different technologies to improve sustainability across our vast packaging portfolio.

In terms of form and function, what were the design goals for the packaging?

Camilleri: Our custom Starbucks Creamer bottle design was rooted in our consumer obsession. The design was inspired by Starbucks brand attributes and the Starbucks café experience, informed by targeted consumer insights and incorporated category norms and functionality. We designed the bottle to include flowing, soft curves and a simple, balanced shape. The closure was designed to mimic carafes found in Starbucks cafés, and to create an easy and mess-free pouring experience. We also designed for the ideal flow from of creamer from the spout and a “click” sound to cue that the lid is closed.

Can you comment on the products’ reception?

Camilleri: While we cannot share specific sales information, we have been very pleased by consumer and retailer response to these new products, which are performing well in-market.

Nestlé USA packaging specialist details the highly engineered bottle and innovative sleeve label that enabled the development of 100% recyclable sleeve-labeled bottles.

 

Time can deliver a whole new perspective on things.

In July, Nestlé and Starbucks announced the launch of Starbucks Creamers that enabled the Starbucks brand to break into the refrigerated creamer category. The product development combined Starbucks’s popular flavors with Nestlé expertise and leadership in the creamer category. The result? Consumers have a new way to enjoy Starbucks coffee at home.

Packages cooks are thankful for this holiday

Array ( [post_title] => Packages cooks are thankful for this holiday [post_content] =>

With all its trimmings, it can take hours to prepare a traditional holiday meal. But today’s cooks know that certain product packages can lend a hand, making it possible for them to enjoy family, friends and fraternity instead of slaving in the kitchen all day.

What convenient or innovative packages made it into your pantry or refrigerator this year? Here are notable food and beverage packages that caught my eye at a local—and incredibly busy!—Trader Joe’s in the Chicago area. From the meal’s main protein to sides, deserts and drinks, here’s a cornucopia of glass, flexible, paper, metal and plastic packages delivering delight to grateful chefs.

 

Turkey: This frozen turkey packaging uses the same shrink-wrapped bag as most other brands. But the clean graphics and simple color scheme focuses the eye on “Organic,” for consumers who care about that, which is pretty much anyone shopping at Trader Joe’s, right?

For the ultimate in main-course convenience, though, Trader Joe’s packs up a frozen meal kit of turkey tenderloin wrapped with stuffing in a tasty puff pastry. The tenderloin is shrink wrapped in clear film inside the carton, along with cranberry sauce and gravy packets (also in clear, unprinted pouches). High-impact photography on the glossy carton shows the appetizing final cooked presentation.

CLICK NEXT!

Gravy: You could choose from cans or jars or even pouches of gravy. But this shelf-stable Tetra Pak aseptic carton opens easily along a perforation once the top ends are lifted. A quick pour—without any glug—into a pan or gravy boat and you can move on to the side dishes.

CLICK NEXT!

 

Dressing/Stuffing: It doesn’t matter what you call it or if you put it inside the bird or not, this carb staple can taste good from a kit. Appetizing imagery on the paperboard carton shows the cooked “Gluten Free” product in a nearly-country table setting.

CLICK NEXT!

Cranberry sauce: It’s easier to remember the cranberry sauce when it doubles as a sweet topping for a slice of turkey instead of ho-hum gravy (thanks for the recommendation, Trader Joe’s!). This heavy-weight glass jar with metal screw-on closure and paper label imparts a homemade feel to go with the rest of the looks-like-from-scratch meal.

CLICK NEXT!

 

Veggies: For these frozen Brussel sprouts—a healthy side dish that has gain popularity in recent years—the typical center-fin sealed layflat bag features crisply printed graphics that do the bare minimum for product ID on the front and info/instructions on the back. This lets the consumer see as much of the vegetables inside the bag before the buy.

Not into mini cabbage heads? Ingredients for a classic green-bean casserole—green beans, mushroom soup and Fried Onion pieces—are easy to assemble with easy-open packs like these:

The convenience of this stiff 2-lb. bag of French Style Green Beans is that they have been washed and are ready to cook—a large window on the front panel makes it easy to see that. The seam of this familiar center-seam layflat bag also pulls apart easily with a tug.

Cooks can easily open this mushroom soup in a Tetra Pak shelf-stable Recart aseptic pack because of its perforated top that, like the gravy carton you saw earlier, allows easy dispensing without a tool.

Paperboard canisters with easy-peel lidding hold pieces of Fried Onions. Color photography on the glue-applied paper label illustrates the main use of the product this time of year.

CLICK NEXT!

Potatoes: Yam, man! Sweet potatoes mate well with a turkey meal. But as I age and arthritis sets into my hands, holding the spuds for peeling becomes a chore. Okay, peeling potatoes is a chore no matter what state your hands are in. This inexpensive poly bag, with a clear peek of the product from the back, holds peeled and cubed yams, ready for stove-top or microwave cooking. Stirring is all that’s needed to smooth these chunks into a creamy consistency. Don’t forget the mini marshmallows to sprinkle on top!

CLICK NEXT!

Drinks: This glass bottle of Egg Nog has clarity, purity and heft. High-end labels add to the product’s upscale image: “Egg Nog” is embossed on the front label and “Trader Joe’s” is also embossed in dazzling red metallic ink or foil (it really looks like foil but the type is pretty small on neck label and front label, so it’s hard to tell).

Is Thanksgiving too early for egg nog? That’s debatable, in my opinion. But a good old-fashioned Ginger Brew will go down smooth too. The swing-top closure atop the glass bottle harkens back to Grandma’s dining table.

CLICK NEXT!

Desert: Choosing a pie filling is personal preference. I’ll leave that up to you. But a perfect crust is within your easy grasp with this pastry layered pie tin. A simple tamper-evident band holds a plastic lid close to the crust, and clear film underneath that helps keep moisture levels even until you’re ready to fill, bake and enjoy.

If you’re watching calories at this point (really, tho?!), whipped cream on top of the pie instead of ice cream will make all the difference (really?!). This typical pressurized can sports high-end matte graphics (the photos don't do justice to the matte effect). Quality printing showcases a photo of a coconut to further emphasize the flavor and ingredients. Clear, icon-style instructions on back are super easy to follow.

The convenience of this stiff 2-lb. bag of French Style Green Beans is that they have been washed and are ready to cook—a large window on the front panel makes it easy to see that. The seam of this familiar center-seam layflat bag also pulls apart easily with a tug.

Cooks can easily open this mushroom soup in a Tetra Pak shelf-stable Recart aseptic pack because of its perforated top that, like the gravy carton you saw earlier, allows easy dispensing without a tool.

Paperboard canisters with easy-peel lidding hold pieces of Fried Onions. Color photography on the glue-applied paper label illustrates the main use of the product this time of year.

CLICK NEXT!

Potatoes: Yam, man! Sweet potatoes mate well with a turkey meal. But as I age and arthritis sets into my hands, holding the spuds for peeling becomes a chore. Okay, peeling potatoes is a chore no matter what state your hands are in. This inexpensive poly bag, with a clear peek of the product from the back, holds peeled and cubed yams, ready for stove-top or microwave cooking. Stirring is all that’s needed to smooth these chunks into a creamy consistency. Don’t forget the mini marshmallows to sprinkle on top!

CLICK NEXT!

Drinks: This glass bottle of Egg Nog has clarity, purity and heft. High-end labels add to the product’s upscale image: “Egg Nog” is embossed on the front label and “Trader Joe’s” is also embossed in dazzling red metallic ink or foil (it really looks like foil but the type is pretty small on neck label and front label, so it’s hard to tell).

Is Thanksgiving too early for egg nog? That’s debatable, in my opinion. But a good old-fashioned Ginger Brew will go down smooth too. The swing-top closure atop the glass bottle harkens back to Grandma’s dining table.

CLICK NEXT!

Desert: Choosing a pie filling is personal preference. I’ll leave that up to you. But a perfect crust is within your easy grasp with this pastry layered pie tin. A simple tamper-evident band holds a plastic lid close to the crust, and clear film underneath that helps keep moisture levels even until you’re ready to fill, bake and enjoy.

If you’re watching calories at this point (really, tho?!), whipped cream on top of the pie instead of ice cream will make all the difference (really?!). This typical pressurized can sports high-end matte graphics (the photos don't do justice to the matte effect). Quality printing showcases a photo of a coconut to further emphasize the flavor and ingredients. Clear, icon-style instructions on back are super easy to follow.

With all its trimmings, it can take hours to prepare a traditional holiday meal. But today’s cooks know that certain product packages can lend a hand, making it possible for them to enjoy family, friends and fraternity instead of slaving in the kitchen all day.

What convenient or innovative packages made it into your pantry or refrigerator this year? Here are notable food and beverage packages that caught my eye at a local—and incredibly busy!—Trader Joe’s in the Chicago area. From the meal’s main protein to sides, deserts and drinks, here’s a cornucopia of glass, flexible, paper, metal and plastic packages delivering delight to grateful chefs.

 

Turkey: This frozen turkey packaging uses the same shrink-wrapped bag as most other brands. But the clean graphics and simple color scheme focuses the eye on “Organic,” for consumers who care about that, which is pretty much anyone shopping at Trader Joe’s, right?

Packages cooks are thankful for this holiday

For the ultimate in main-course convenience, though, Trader Joe’s packs up a frozen meal kit of turkey tenderloin wrapped with stuffing in a tasty puff pastry. The tenderloin is shrink wrapped in clear film inside the carton, along with cranberry sauce and gravy packets (also in clear, unprinted pouches). High-impact photography on the glossy carton shows the appetizing final cooked presentation.

CLICK NEXT!

Gravy: You could choose from cans or jars or even pouches of gravy. But this shelf-stable Tetra Pak aseptic carton opens easily along a perforation once the top ends are lifted. A quick pour—without any glug—into a pan or gravy boat and you can move on to the side dishes.

CLICK NEXT!

 

Dressing/Stuffing: It doesn’t matter what you call it or if you put it inside the bird or not, this carb staple can taste good from a kit. Appetizing imagery on the paperboard carton shows the cooked “Gluten Free” product in a nearly-country table setting.

CLICK NEXT!

Cranberry sauce: It’s easier to remember the cranberry sauce when it doubles as a sweet topping for a slice of turkey instead of ho-hum gravy (thanks for the recommendation, Trader Joe’s!). This heavy-weight glass jar with metal screw-on closure and paper label imparts a homemade feel to go with the rest of the looks-like-from-scratch meal.

CLICK NEXT!

 

Veggies: For these frozen Brussel sprouts—a healthy side dish that has gain popularity in recent years—the typical center-fin sealed layflat bag features crisply printed graphics that do the bare minimum for product ID on the front and info/instructions on the back. This lets the consumer see as much of the vegetables inside the bag before the buy.

For the ultimate in main-course convenience, though, Trader Joe’s packs up a frozen meal kit of turkey tenderloin wrapped with stuffing in a tasty puff pastry. The tenderloin is shrink wrapped in clear film inside the carton, along with cranberry sauce and gravy packets (also in clear, unprinted pouches). High-impact photography on the glossy carton shows the appetizing final cooked presentation.

Gravy: You could choose from cans or jars or even pouches of gravy. But this shelf-stable Tetra Pak aseptic carton opens easily along a perforation once the top ends are lifted. A quick pour—without any glug—into a pan or gravy boat and you can move on to the side dishes.

Cranberry sauce: It’s easier to remember the cranberry sauce when it doubles as a sweet topping for a slice of turkey instead of ho-hum gravy (thanks for the recommendation, Trader Joe’s!).

Not into mini cabbage heads? Ingredients for a classic green-bean casserole—green beans, mushroom soup and Fried Onion pieces—are easy to assemble with easy-open packs like these:

The convenience of this stiff 2-lb. bag of French Style Green Beans is that they have been washed and are ready to cook—a large window on the front panel makes it easy to see that. The seam of this familiar center-seam layflat bag also pulls apart easily with a tug.

Cooks can easily open this mushroom soup in a Tetra Pak shelf-stable Recart aseptic pack because of its perforated top that, like the gravy carton you saw earlier, allows easy dispensing without a tool.

Paperboard canisters with easy-peel lidding hold pieces of Fried Onions. Color photography on the glue-applied paper label illustrates the main use of the product this time of year.

CLICK NEXT!

Potatoes: Yam, man! Sweet potatoes mate well with a turkey meal. But as I age and arthritis sets into my hands, holding the spuds for peeling becomes a chore. Okay, peeling potatoes is a chore no matter what state your hands are in. This inexpensive poly bag, with a clear peek of the product from the back, holds peeled and cubed yams, ready for stove-top or microwave cooking. Stirring is all that’s needed to smooth these chunks into a creamy consistency. Don’t forget the mini marshmallows to sprinkle on top!

CLICK NEXT!

Drinks: This glass bottle of Egg Nog has clarity, purity and heft. High-end labels add to the product’s upscale image: “Egg Nog” is embossed on the front label and “Trader Joe’s” is also embossed in dazzling red metallic ink or foil (it really looks like foil but the type is pretty small on neck label and front label, so it’s hard to tell).

Is Thanksgiving too early for egg nog? That’s debatable, in my opinion. But a good old-fashioned Ginger Brew will go down smooth too. The swing-top closure atop the glass bottle harkens back to Grandma’s dining table.

CLICK NEXT!

Desert: Choosing a pie filling is personal preference. I’ll leave that up to you. But a perfect crust is within your easy grasp with this pastry layered pie tin. A simple tamper-evident band holds a plastic lid close to the crust, and clear film underneath that helps keep moisture levels even until you’re ready to fill, bake and enjoy.

If you’re watching calories at this point (really, tho?!), whipped cream on top of the pie instead of ice cream will make all the difference (really?!). This typical pressurized can sports high-end matte graphics (the photos don't do justice to the matte effect). Quality printing showcases a photo of a coconut to further emphasize the flavor and ingredients. Clear, icon-style instructions on back are super easy to follow.

With all its trimmings, it can take hours to prepare a traditional holiday meal. But today’s cooks know that certain product packages can lend a hand, making it possible for them to enjoy family, friends and fraternity instead of slaving in the kitchen all day.

What convenient or innovative packages made it into your pantry or refrigerator this year? Here are notable food and beverage packages that caught my eye at a local—and incredibly busy!—Trader Joe’s in the Chicago area. From the meal’s main protein to sides, deserts and drinks, here’s a cornucopia of glass, flexible, paper, metal and plastic packages delivering delight to grateful chefs.

This inexpensive poly bag, with a clear peek of the product from the back, holds peeled and cubed yams, ready for stove-top or microwave cooking. Stirring is all that’s needed to smooth these chunks into a creamy consistency. Don’t forget the mini marshmallows to sprinkle on top!

Drinks: This glass bottle of Egg Nog has clarity, purity and heft. High-end labels add to the product’s upscale image: “Egg Nog” is embossed on the front label and “Trader Joe’s” is also embossed in dazzling red metallic ink or foil (it really looks like foil but the type is pretty small on neck label and front label, so it’s hard to tell).

Is Thanksgiving too early for egg nog? That’s debatable, in my opinion. But a good old-fashioned Ginger Brew will go down smooth too. The swing-top closure atop the glass bottle harkens back to Grandma’s dining table.

Desert: Choosing a pie filling is personal preference. I’ll leave that up to you. But a perfect crust is within your easy grasp with this pastry layered pie tin. A simple tamper-evident band holds a plastic lid close to the crust, and clear film underneath that helps keep moisture levels even until you’re ready to fill, bake and enjoy.

If you’re watching calories at this point (really, tho?!), whipped cream on top of the pie instead of ice cream will make all the difference (really?!). This typical pressurized can sports high-end matte graphics (the photos don't do justice to the matte effect). Quality printing showcases a photo of a coconut to further emphasize the flavor and ingredients. Clear, icon-style instructions on back are super easy to follow.

With all its trimmings, it can take hours to prepare a traditional holiday meal. But today’s cooks know that certain product packages can lend a hand, making it possible for them to enjoy family, friends and fraternity instead of slaving in the kitchen all day.

What convenient or innovative packages made it into your pantry or refrigerator this year? Here are notable food and beverage packages that caught my eye at a local—and incredibly busy!—Trader Joe’s in the Chicago area. From the meal’s main protein to sides, deserts and drinks, here’s a cornucopia of glass, flexible, paper, metal and plastic packages delivering delight to grateful chefs.

 

Turkey: This frozen turkey packaging uses the same shrink-wrapped bag as most other brands. But the clean graphics and simple color scheme focuses the eye on “Organic,” for consumers who care about that, which is pretty much anyone shopping at Trader Joe’s, right?

For the ultimate in main-course convenience, though, Trader Joe’s packs up a frozen meal kit of turkey tenderloin wrapped with stuffing in a tasty puff pastry. The tenderloin is shrink wrapped in clear film inside the carton, along with cranberry sauce and gravy packets (also in clear, unprinted pouches). High-impact photography on the glossy carton shows the appetizing final cooked presentation.

Gravy: You could choose from cans or jars or even pouches of gravy. But this shelf-stable Tetra Pak aseptic carton opens easily along a perforation once the top ends are lifted. A quick pour—without any glug—into a pan or gravy boat and you can move on to the side dishes.

Dressing/Stuffing: It doesn’t matter what you call it or if you put it inside the bird or not, this carb staple can taste good from a kit. Appetizing imagery on the paperboard carton shows the cooked “Gluten Free” product in a nearly-country table setting.

Cranberry sauce: It’s easier to remember the cranberry sauce when it doubles as a sweet topping for a slice of turkey instead of ho-hum gravy (thanks for the recommendation, Trader Joe’s!). This heavy-weight glass jar with metal screw-on closure and paper label imparts a homemade feel to go with the rest of the looks-like-from-scratch meal.

Veggies: For these frozen Brussel sprouts—a healthy side dish that has gain popularity in recent years—the typical center-fin sealed layflat bag features crisply printed graphics that do the bare minimum for product ID on the front and info/instructions on the back.

With all its trimmings, it can take hours to prepare a traditional holiday meal. But today’s cooks know that certain product packages can lend a hand, making it possible for them to enjoy family, friends and fraternity instead of slaving in the kitchen all day.

What convenient or innovative packages made it into your pantry or refrigerator this year? Here are notable food and beverage packages that caught my eye at a local—and incredibly busy!—Trader Joe’s in the Chicago area. From the meal’s main protein to sides, deserts and drinks, here’s a cornucopia of glass, flexible, paper, metal and plastic packages delivering delight to grateful chefs.

 

Turkey: This frozen turkey packaging uses the same shrink-wrapped bag as most other brands. But the clean graphics and simple color scheme focuses the eye on “Organic,” for consumers who care about that, which is pretty much anyone shopping at Trader Joe’s, right?

For the ultimate in main-course convenience, though, Trader Joe’s packs up a frozen meal kit of turkey tenderloin wrapped with stuffing in a tasty puff pastry. The tenderloin is shrink wrapped in clear film inside the carton, along with cranberry sauce and gravy packets (also in clear, unprinted pouches). High-impact photography on the glossy carton shows the appetizing final cooked presentation.

Gravy: You could choose from cans or jars or even pouches of gravy. But this shelf-stable Tetra Pak aseptic carton opens easily along a perforation once the top ends are lifted. A quick pour—without any glug—into a pan or gravy boat and you can move on to the side dishes.

Dressing/Stuffing: It doesn’t matter what you call it or if you put it inside the bird or not, this carb staple can taste good from a kit. Appetizing imagery on the paperboard carton shows the cooked “Gluten Free” product in a nearly-country table setting.

Cranberry sauce: It’s easier to remember the cranberry sauce when it doubles as a sweet topping for a slice of turkey instead of ho-hum gravy (thanks for the recommendation, Trader Joe’s!). This heavy-weight glass jar with metal screw-on closure and paper label imparts a homemade feel to go with the rest of the looks-like-from-scratch meal.

Veggies: For these frozen Brussel sprouts—a healthy side dish that has gain popularity in recent years—the typical center-fin sealed layflat bag features crisply printed graphics that do the bare minimum for product ID on the front and info/instructions on the back. This lets the consumer see as much of the vegetables inside the bag before the buy.

Not into mini cabbage heads? Ingredients for a classic green-bean casserole—green beans, mushroom soup and Fried Onion pieces—are easy to assemble with easy-open packs like these:

The convenience of this stiff 2-lb. bag of French Style Green Beans is that they have been washed and are ready to cook—a large window on the front panel makes it easy to see that. The seam of this familiar center-seam layflat bag also pulls apart easily with a tug.

Cooks can easily open this mushroom soup in a Tetra Pak shelf-stable Recart aseptic pack because of its perforated top that, like the gravy carton you saw earlier, allows easy dispensing without a tool.

Paperboard canisters with easy-peel lidding hold pieces of Fried Onions. Color photography on the glue-applied paper label illustrates the main use of the product this time of year.

Potatoes: Yam, man! Sweet potatoes mate well with a turkey meal. But as I age and arthritis sets into my hands, holding the spuds for peeling becomes a chore. Okay, peeling potatoes is a chore no matter what state your hands are in. This inexpensive poly bag, with a clear peek of the product from the back, holds peeled and cubed yams, ready for stove-top or microwave cooking. Stirring is all that’s needed to smooth these chunks into a creamy consistency. Don’t forget the mini marshmallows to sprinkle on top!

Drinks: This glass bottle of Egg Nog has clarity, purity and heft. High-end labels add to the product’s upscale image: “Egg Nog” is embossed on the front label and “Trader Joe’s” is also embossed in dazzling red metallic ink or foil (it really looks like foil but the type is pretty small on neck label and front label, so it’s hard to tell).

Is Thanksgiving too early for egg nog? That’s debatable, in my opinion. But a good old-fashioned Ginger Brew will go down smooth too. The swing-top closure atop the glass bottle harkens back to Grandma’s dining table.

Desert: Choosing a pie filling is personal preference. I’ll leave that up to you. But a perfect crust is within your easy grasp with this pastry layered pie tin. A simple tamper-evident band holds a plastic lid close to the crust, and clear film underneath that helps keep moisture levels even until you’re ready to fill, bake and enjoy.

If you’re watching calories at this point (really, tho?!), whipped cream on top of the pie instead of ice cream will make all the difference (really?!). This typical pressurized can sports high-end matte graphics (the photos don't do justice to the matte effect). Quality printing showcases a photo of a coconut to further emphasize the flavor and ingredients. Clear, icon-style instructions on back are super easy to follow.

Tactile label-printing technique tempts the fingertips

Array ( [post_title] => Tactile label-printing technique tempts the fingertips [post_content] =>

A digital printing technology that adds a haptic effect to labels is opening the door to high-end, texturized packaging designs for products in a range of consumer goods categories, including food, beverage, beer, and health and beauty.

Developed in Belgium by Xeikon, this solution combines the company’s X-800 workflow and PantherCure ultraviolet inks to create a raised pattern on labels. The technique enables brand owners to combine complementary visual and tactile elements in the design with no modification to prepress files, which saves time.

The brand owner or designer creates the label design, and the workflow system recognizes the various design elements, directing the printhead to print the haptic layer as well as regular graphics.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Donna Covannon, director of marketing North America at Xeikon, explains that the haptic effect is achieved by a double hit of white ink on the company’s PX3000 UV inkjet press. To prevent telescoping label rolls common with uneven ink coverage—such as raised, tactile printing—Xeikon uses its patented double-curing process. The Panther DuraCure curing process combines LED and mercury curing to “pin” inks in place and prevent them from spreading or bleeding.

 

More consistent rolls reduce waste, changeover

Speaking of telescoping…a separate innovation from Xeikon increases digital-press uptime by reducing the layer of opaque white ink laid down on clear facestock prior to printing graphics. This type of facestock is used for premium-quality labels in markets such as beer and health and beauty.

Historically, for this application, the areas of white ink caused an uneven thickness of ink across the web, which in turn caused substrate rolls to telescope. Press operators typically responded by printing smaller rolls, necessitating more frequent roll changes, and wasting materials and time during label application.

To address the fundamental problem, some printers would work during prepress to reduce the amount of white ink required, thus adding time to production overall. The X-800 workflow now automatically makes the required changes, saving time while achieving the same result—reduction of the white layer commensurate with the colors to be printed over it.

Eliminating the prepress step saves time. In addition, reducing the white layer saves ink and makes it practical to print larger rolls, reducing downtime for roll changes on the packaging line.

4 ways end-of-arm robotic tools benefit smaller companies

Array ( [post_title] => 4 ways end-of-arm robotic tools benefit smaller companies [post_content] =>

Across the globe, an increasing number of small and medium enterprises (SME) are driving exceptional growth in the packaging automation market. The sector should grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% over a seven-year period ending in 2024, according to a 2018 report by Research Nester. By then, analysts predict the global market will have reached $61.2 billion.

Myriad factors are responsible for the market’s accelerated expansion. In particular, rapid industrialization continues to spur more widespread manufacturing activity, especially in such developing nations as Thailand, Argentina, Indonesia and Mexico. Small- to medium-sized manufacturers are also adopting more advanced packaging technologies, like robotics, to improve worker safety, lower operating costs and heighten productivity.

As more and more SMEs implement packaging automation into production, it is crucial for businesses to do so smartly by ensuring they understand not just how automation technology can be beneficial, but what types of tools will help make the deployment seamless and successful.

 

Recent improvements improve accuracy and flexibility

Packaging automation can be a cost-effective solution for SMEs that need to increase production, while at the same time offer human operators a safer working environment. These businesses require more flexibility and versatility in the packaging process, often needing solutions for low-volume, high-mix production.

Cobots designed for quick and easy redeployment offer significant advantages. And those cobots should be equipped with adaptable force and stroke automation tools to accommodate varying sizes, shapes and condition of parts and raw materials.

Other businesses need sensors that can guide robotic arms to differently positioned parts on assembly lines, or tools that can be quickly programmed and deployed within minutes, even under the direction of inexperienced operators.

End-of-arm tooling (EOAT) is paving the way forward for all the above demands.

EOAT comes in a variety of forms, from grippers and tool changers to torque sensors, each one built to make the robotic arm to which it is attached far more powerful and capable. Depending on its design and function, EOAT can precisely handle materials differing in size and shape, help better accommodate tasks with short lead times and facilitate high-mix, low-volume packaging jobs.

These highly collaborative applications help make palletizing and packaging easier and more accurate than ever before. For instance, dated applications require an object to be in a constant position or a predictable environment to function properly. Advanced EOAT on the other hand can detect improperly positioned objects and adjust accordingly. Traditional applications are limited by their ability to only apply constant grip force and stroke, while today’s cutting-edge EOAT can readily change both functions.

In short, modern EOAT is less demanding, more effective and far more versatile than its more-restrictive predecessor technology.

 

EOAT at work

Because EOAT plays a significant overall role in automated robotic packaging and palletizing, SMEs must carefully choose the collaborative applications best suited to their specific needs and goals.

For example, businesses that handle high-volume consumer products—toys, lightbulbs, pharmaceutics, car accessories—could use a mix of grippers and sensors to solve issues related to box or product stacks of varying height by accurately determining an item’s position (sensor) and securely picking it (gripper) with fewer, larger suction cups. This EOAT partnership helps avoid product collision, satisfy dual gripping needs and process items of varying sizes.

Similarly, SMEs working with blister packaging—a business group that typically includes co-packers, fast-moving consumer goods producers (FMCG) and logistics service providers—may want to use a combination of sensor and gripper to ensure precise positioning and picking, adapt to differently shaped products and make the time-consuming process of changing grippers for every product a thing of the past.

EOAT-powered automated packaging is on the rise. Accessible and affordable, EOAT can help solve multiple production and overall business challenges by:

1. Boosting productivity;
2. Streamlining operational costs;
3. Reducing damaged product incidents;
4. Accommodating diverse batch volumes.

These dynamic applications offer a clear path forward for enterprises of all sizes.

These businesses require more flexibility and versatility in the packaging process, often needing solutions for low-volume, high-mix production.

Cobots designed for quick and easy redeployment offer significant advantages. And those cobots should be equipped with adaptable force and stroke automation tools to accommodate varying sizes, shapes and condition of parts and raw materials.

Other businesses need sensors that can guide robotic arms to differently positioned parts on assembly lines, or tools that can be quickly programmed and deployed within minutes, even under the direction of inexperienced operators.

End-of-arm tooling (EOAT) is paving the way forward for all the above demands.

EOAT comes in a variety of forms, from grippers and tool changers to torque sensors, each one built to make the robotic arm to which it is attached far more powerful and capable. Depending on its design and function, EOAT can precisely handle materials differing in size and shape, help better accommodate tasks with short lead times and facilitate high-mix, low-volume packaging jobs.

These highly collaborative applications help make palletizing and packaging easier and more accurate than ever before. For instance, dated applications require an object to be in a constant position or a predictable environment to function properly. Advanced EOAT on the other hand can detect improperly positioned objects and adjust accordingly. Traditional applications are limited by their ability to only apply constant grip force and stroke, while today’s cutting-edge EOAT can readily change both functions.

In short, modern EOAT is less demanding, more effective and far more versatile than its more-restrictive predecessor technology.

 

EOAT at work

Because EOAT plays a significant overall role in automated robotic packaging and palletizing, SMEs must carefully choose the collaborative applications best suited to their specific needs and goals.

For example, businesses that handle high-volume consumer products—toys, lightbulbs, pharmaceutics, car accessories—could use a mix of grippers and sensors to solve issues related to box or product stacks of varying height by accurately determining an item’s position (sensor) and securely picking it (gripper) with fewer, larger suction cups. This EOAT partnership helps avoid product collision, satisfy dual gripping needs and process items of varying sizes.

Similarly, SMEs working with blister packaging—a business group that typically includes co-packers, fast-moving consumer goods producers (FMCG) and logistics service providers—may want to use a combination of sensor and gripper to ensure precise positioning and picking, adapt to differently shaped products and make the time-consuming process of changing grippers for every product a thing of the past.

Across the globe, an increasing number of small and medium enterprises (SME) are driving exceptional growth in the packaging automation market. The sector should grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% over a seven-year period ending in 2024, according to a 2018 report by Research Nester. By then, analysts predict the global market will have reached $61.2 billion.

Myriad factors are responsible for the market’s accelerated expansion. In particular, rapid industrialization continues to spur more widespread manufacturing activity, especially in such developing nations as Thailand, Argentina, Indonesia and Mexico. Small- to medium-sized manufacturers are also adopting more advanced packaging technologies, like robotics, to improve worker safety, lower operating costs and heighten productivity.

As more and more SMEs implement packaging automation into production, it is crucial for businesses to do so smartly by ensuring they understand not just how automation technology can be beneficial, but what types of tools will help make the deployment seamless and successful.

New Fundamentals course centers on medical packaging

Array ( [post_title] => New Fundamentals course centers on medical packaging [post_content] =>

Medical packaging professionals will shortly have a new resource for augmenting their knowledge and skills set. The Medical Device Packaging Technical Committee (MDPTC) of the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) is developing a Fundamentals of Packaging course that delves into the unique processes, concerns and challenges of packaging medical devices and supplies.

During Pack Expo Las Vegas 2019, the IoPP Medical Device Packaging Technical Committee invited members of the medical device community to discuss the proposed program. I attended the meeting myself and was impressed with the enthusiasm and ideas in the room.

The content—being developed with junior engineers and those new to the medical device packaging industry in mind (although experienced engineers will likely get something out of it, too!)—is still in development, but has been organized into nine key areas:

1. Regulations, quality systems and standards
2. Materials and their forms (packaging and labels, working with suppliers)
3. Design (inputs, risks and outputs)
4. Equipment
5. Processes (sealing and sterilization)
6. Testing, validation and qualification, including human factors/usability
7. Troubleshooting, Corrective Action Preventive Action (CAPAs) and remediation strategies
8. Sustainability
9. Capstone (similar to a college thesis, this is a culminating academic and intellectual assignment for students at the end of an academic program or learning-pathway experience)

According to the MDPTC, more segments may be added as the course content is fine-tuned.

And that’s where you come in. The group needs industry input in two ways:

1. Feedback on developing course content, as well as on other MDPTC initiatives (see survey link below).

2. As course instructors.

If you have questions about the Fundamentals course, please contact Jennifer Benolken, CPPL, at jennifer.a.benolken@dupont.com.

According to Benolken, proceeds from the course will go toward funding scholarships (for collegiate students interested in medical device packaging) to other industry learning events, such as the HealthPack conference. “This course is being developed as many industry leaders are recognizing there aren’t many resources available to train their inexperienced engineers,” Benolken says.

Development of the new Fundamentals program is just one of many activities IoPP’s Medical Device Packaging Technical Committee has in the works though. To learn more and to indicate your interest in participating in the development of the Fundamentals course or any other activity, please take this short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DZCRF97.

Array ( [post_title] => Engineered Bonding Solutions [post_content] =>

Our team at Whitlam Group specializes in design, and custom conversion to create a product to meet your needs. This could include solving a problem, providing efficiency gains, or reducing costs. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows Whitlam to accommodate some of the tightest tolerances in the industry, down to ± 0.1mm (material dependent). Our Servo-motion control systems allow for island placement, and the ability to marry multiple materials with
great precision.

At Whitlam we produce converted parts for the following market segments:

One type of engineered bonding solutions that Whitlam specializes in is 3M™VHB™.

3M™VHB™ is an industry leading brand of acrylic foam tape. It is designed to replace mechanical fasteners when assembling products, giving your product a clean look with an invisible bond. With 3M™ VHB™ viscoelastic acrylics and 100% closed cell foam design this product has a very strong bond, is durable and has a waterproof seal.

3M™VHB™ enhances your design, improves productivity, and delivers innovative products.

3M™VHB™ Characteristics include:

 

Bonding product parts with precision, ease, reliability, and strength requires an approach that breaks the barriers of traditional construction elements. 3M™VHB™ Tapes open up a world of possibilities – eliminating rivets, screws, bolts, and welds – and improving design construction, aesthetics and productivity. With unmatched strengths these tapes increase the overall durability and reliability of every product bond.

Applications include:

THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING

Array ( [post_title] => THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING [post_content] =>

When on demand printing is required, thermal-transfer printing is a great option.

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method. In this process the coating of a material called “ribbon” is melted onto another material such as paper.

Markets

Thermal-transfer printing can be used in many markets such as Healthcare, Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Food/Beverage, Automotive, Chemical, Industrial, Durable Goods, Electronics, and more.

Some different types of labels used in these markets include:

Two Factors

Print darkness and speed are the two factors that determine how a thermal-transfer label is printed. The print darkness tells the print head how much heat to use when burning the dots of the ribbon onto the material. The speed determines how fast the print head must heat up to burn the dots onto the material. Durability and quality are effect by print darkness and speed.

Three Components

Three components in thermal-transfer printing are: a non-movable print head, a ribbon (the ink), and material to be printed on. These three components sandwich the ribbon in the middle. When the print head heats up to a desired temperature, the print head melts the ribbon, in the form of dots, on to the material. Once the dot is transferred from the ribbon to the material it immediately cools down and by the time the material comes out of the printer the ink is dry.

Printers and Ribbons

There are different types of thermal-transfer printers that vary in durability, performance, and design capabilities. The ribbon used in these printers can be either wax, resin, or a combination of both. Ribbons can come in many different colors. Your choice of ribbon determines what material you can use. Different ribbons are used for different types of application and have different benefits. Durability and quality change based on the type of ribbon and printer used.

Labels printed on a thermal-transfer printer can be pre-printed with company logo or static information. Once a label is needed, the variable information can be printed on demand. Paper or synthetic materials can be used for the thermal-transfer printing process.

Some recommended paper materials include:

Some recommended synthetic materials include:

The print head along with the properties of the ribbon essentially produce a high-quality printed image. When durability and quality matter, thermal-transfer printing is a great solution. For more information contact Whitlam Group today!

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Brand Security

Array ( [post_title] => Brand Security [post_content] =>

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

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.

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.
