Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

Branded as MAKR, the offering enables users to develop three-dimensional package designs in both film and paper formats.

Users can choose almost any ProAmpac produced flexible packaging format and then custom-design their own package. They can use features such as package dimensions, closures, handles and pouch shape, as well as add graphics.

Once done, the finished package design can be submitted online.

The company’s Design and Sample Lab (DASL) team will verify all details and then create and deliver the custom prototype directly to the requester.

ProAmpac global application & innovation vice-president Sal Pellingra said: “Through DASL we have been ideating, designing and prototyping samples in collaboration with customers since 2014.

“MAKR takes our collaboration process to another level by moving ideation and design to a virtual process.

“Users can interact in the app with different flexible packaging formats, sizes, shapes, and art in ways that bring their ideas to life no matter where they are located.

“With so many of our customers working remotely during the pandemic, providing virtual, self-serve capabilities are even more relevant.”

MAKR is part of ProAmpac ’s valued-added virtual offerings under the brand name, Bridge.

Earlier this year, the company launched Bridge Remote Trial Management (RTM).

Last week, ProAmpac partnered with premium speciality baby food producer Bimbosan to manufacture ProActive Renewable bio-based packaging for Bimbosan’s newest premium baby formula, cereal supplements and cereal paps.
