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.

The agreement will enable Quadpack to become the ‘Preferred Global Cosmetics Packaging Partner’ in Sulapac’s partner programme. Sulapac’s existing and new cosmetic customers will have access to various sustainable packaging solutions.

In addition, the partnership will allow Sulapac to sell its microplastic-free solutions as part of Quadpack’s cosmetic packaging product range.

Next year, Quadpack will launch a new Sulapac Nordic Collection, including 15ml, 30ml and 50ml jars. The company is also expected to release new packaging types.

Sulapac’s microplastic-free products are made from renewable raw materials and are fully recyclable.

Sulapac sales head Ami Rubinstein said: “We have got thousands of enquiries from cosmetics customers all over the world about our Nordic Collection and it has been sold out already in August 2019.

“The partnership with Quadpack, one of the top ten European providers of cosmetic packaging, ensures we can more effectively serve a wider customer base.”

The partnership will strengthen Quadpack’s position in sustainable cosmetics packaging by complementing its existing Bi-Injection Blow Moulding technology.

The technology enables Quadpack to use two materials at the same time.

Quadpack Advanced Technology director and co-founder Jeremy Garrard said: “Besides placing Quadpack among the most innovative and competitive cosmetic packaging providers worldwide, the partnership means that beauty brands will have access to truly sustainable packaging solutions with the best microplastic-free, biodegradable material that is currently available in the market.”

In a separate development, Sulapac raised €15m to support its development and international expansion.
