Call to Maintain Food Products Security

Wrap-up - 03/04/2020

Our round up of what's been happening in the world of flexible packaging. 

Call to maintain the security of food products

A joint statement to maintain the security of food and pharmaceutical products during the coronavirus crisis has been signed by Flexible Packaging Europe and other industry partners. 

It calls on the European Commission and national governments to:

  1. Protect and guarantee the security of the supply and the transport of packaging for food and pharmaceutical products, including their supply chain, and the required raw materials and intermediate products.
  2. Open borders for packaging supply chains.
  3. Address shortages and price increases of raw materials.

Dispelling the "evils" of plastic

Plastic isn't intrinsically evil; it is instead our relationship with plastic that leads to negative narratives. So argues Nick Cliffe, Deputy Challenge Director of the Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge, UK Research and Innovation.

Nick discusses the future of plastic in a guest blog that also reminds readers that plastic is a fundamental building block of our society, underpinning many of our systems, from food production, distribution and prevention of food waste to medicines and provision of healthcare.

Plastic bans reversed amid coronavirus fears

Bans on single-use bags and containers are being reversed and delayed amid fears that alternatives, such as reusable bags, carry a health risk.

A university study found that consumers rarely, if ever, wash their bags. Almost all of the bags assessed were covered in bacteria, including E. coli on 12 per cent of bags.

The reversal or delay of bans in US states and cities is particularly aimed at reducing the spread of coronavirus.

He might like to duck and dive in the boxing ring, but Konrad Webster doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to delivering customer service here at KM Packaging.

Superpowers of film that protects, presents, and preserves

If the packaging world had a superhero, its name would most likely be "FOIL". In its aluminium form, this super material has a range of properties that make it a formidable force, particularly when used for trays in food packaging.

Reflections on the Impact of Brexit

Our round-up of what's been happening in the world of flexible packaging this week. 

Guidelines on Recycled Content in Packaging

In this week's wrap up... new BPF guidelines on recycled content in packaging, Covid 19 impact on consumer behavior and the packaging sector, and hats off (and on!) to everyone working in the food supply chain.

We are ready for Brexit

There’s no avoiding it, Brexit deadline day is nearly here. With uncertainty still swirling in the political sphere and the road ahead unclear, what does Brexit mean for the UK packaging industry? In particular, how will importing and exporting, crucial to the supply chain, be affected in the event of a hard Brexit or no deal?
