We also look at how the spouted pouch has revolutionized the baby food category in recent years, explore the key opportunities for packaging innovation in the global makeup sector and learn more about how California’s passage of the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act in October 2017 will force makers of household products like detergents, air fresheners and disinfectants to list any ingredients linked to harmful health effects on product labels.

Finally, we explore the trends shaping the corrugated market, discover more about touch-free meat packaging and analyse the frozen and chilled food aisle.
