PACKAGING special event - "Function meets Design"

PACKAGING special event - "Function meets Design"

Packaging options have to be multitalents today: They have to represent the brand and entice the buyers, but at the same time they also have to be sustainable and resource-saving. The latest innovations of the packaging industry made for instance from regrowing raw materials or also resource-saving waste-avoiding, reusable packaging have been presented. Developments especially for the sweets & snacks section have been presented, which have also been designed in line with the new guidelines and EU legislation.
