Basically MLP is any material that has at least one layer of plastic. Multi Layered Plastic has several thin sheets of materials like aluminum, plastic, and paper that are laminated together and are difficult to separate. Considering the increasing amount of MLP waste, recycling is the best and sustainable solution for reducing the impact caused by MLP waste.
Packaging SKU rationalization can drive cost savings opportunities in a few different ways. It may allow a brand to consolidate its packaging material suppliers and purchase fewer structures and sizes. It may provide an opportunity to reduce the amount of packaging material inventory it needs to keep on hand. Reducing the number of packaging SKUs helps a brand to better utilize its warehouse space. It also enables a brand to optimize asset utilization across manufacturing and packaging facilities.
CEFLEX and partners PCEP, Petcore Europe, Styrenics Circular Solutions and MORE Recycling team up to understand the reality of today’s collected household packaging waste – a vital step forward towards a circular economy for packaging materials.
From milk to sauce to soup, consumers love the convenience of stand-up pouches for liquid products. CPG companies have responded by increasingly offering their liquid products in this packaging format, many featuring handy pour spouts.
Cloud kitchens have been sprouting rapidly, this opens up opportunities for designing innovative packaging for the faced-paced kitchen model. As cloud kitchens work on online delivery without any physical store presence, Packaging becomes one of the most crucial and foremost brand touchpoints for restaurants to connect with consumers.
Helium leak testing refers to the process of finding leaks in some type of enclosed or sealed system using helium as a “tracer” gas and measuring its concentration as it escapes due to leakage.
Active Packaging provides functionality to extend shelf life and actively changes the condition of the packed food when additives are incorporated into the substrates, or inside of the packaging. Depending on the required outcome the additives release, or absorb, into the packed food, or surrounding environment, to not only improve shelf life but also quality, safety and sensory traits of the food.
Never before in the history of mankind, has the consumer had such immense power of choice as they enjoy today. Walk into any retail store or open any ecommerce portal and, no matter what the product category, there are more than a dozen brands vying for their attention. The principal challenge for us marketers then, is how to get a consumer to first notice, then engage and next decide to buy our brand. Research into consumer psychology and buying behaviour shows that the first instinct to pick up a product is driven by emotion rather than logic, which comes later, when the consumer needs to justify the purchase.
Strides Pharma Science Ltd., previously Strides Shasun Limited, is a globally renowned enterprise with a strong presence in international climes with its headquarters in Bangalore, India. While their front-end presence has been prominently felt in regulated markets across the West – The US, Canada, Europe and so on, Indian climes still remain relatively unexplored. However, that is slated to change rapidly. In 2016, Strides acquired Pediacare, a renowned brand specializing in pediatric cold, cough and allergy remedies from Sweden-based Moberg Pharma. By April 2020, they were poised to enter the Indian market with dietary supplements for children, in the ‘gummy’ format under Pediacare’s aegis.
Many companies looking to guarantee the integrity of their goods during transportation and to optimize their packaging hesitate when it comes to choosing which procedure to use between ISTA vs ASTM to perform their performance tests. Both the ASTM standards and the ISTA standards are recognized standards that can be used to test packaged products during the distribution cycle. The goal when applying them is to find out the effect caused by the contingencies of each product distribution cycle, with the purpose of developing a configuration that provides safety to product and package. The big question is, which method is most suitable? When choosing between ISTA vs ASTM, the key is identifying the specific needs of the product to be transported and the distribution route that it will follow. While a packaging testing lab can provide this information, we will list the most essential.
In our world today, there is a growing plastic waste problem, and solving it is a major challenge. Plastic waste pollutes the marine ecosystem and devastates ocean environments. All companies using plastic (resins) need to change the way they do business. That’s where an important shift comes in – a change from the environmentally damaging business cycle of production-consumption-disposal to the sustainable cycle of production-consumption-collection-recycle. We promote material recycling that involves the re-use of plastic waste. A key shift is also occurring in bioplastics, which helps to lower our carbon footprint and reduce our dependence on fossil fuel resources.
We’re on a mission to help reduce global waste. From using alternative materials to creating packaging innovations, we’re determined to transform the way we all think about the products we buy. Because, for lasting change, we need to shift our mindsets: buying less but better, and being inspired by the times that existed before our ‘disposable’ culture, when the things we bought were made to last. To help accelerate the global beauty industry’s progress towards addressing plastic waste, we’ve created our first refillable deodorant to help transform your daily routine.
