Essentra is to mark the one-year anniversary of its industry-leading design hub at the Packaging Innovations 2017 event.

The Design Hub combines blue sky thinking with creative and structural design, to deliver stand-out packaging to differentiate customer’s brands on the shelf.

Essentra’s complete range of cartons, labels, leaflets and tear tapes enables manufacturers to produce packaging that incorporates both aesthetic vision and security solutions, producing eye-catching original packaging that also helps to combat counterfeiting.

Products that will be on show at Packaging Innovations include the Lotus Pack, Caprini Carton, Tea Carton and Honey Jar. These products illustrate Essentra’s extensive capabilities, from structural design to print finishes (such as embossing, foiling and window patching), as well as labelling solutions such as tamper evident and Peel 2 Read labels.

Essentra will also be sharing key industry trend updates for 2018, to reinforce the importance that packaging plays in keeping products current and the importance of design in helping brands stand out on shelf.

Alan Davies, global design studio manager, added: "We’ve been delighted to see how well our customers have embraced the new service over the past 12 months, and are looking forward to continue developing our design capabilities with more customers in the future."
