Latest innovations to light up London event

A number of new products have been confirmed for Packaging Innovations 2019, which will be hosted alongside Luxury Packaging London later this year.

Event organisers have revealed that Seufert will present its new PET Blue Ocean material, designed to reduce unused packaging waste. The new design has been created as an alternative to standard PET and is said to utilise up to 100% recycled content in the central layer of the polyester material.

Staeger Clear Packaging will showcase its transparent packaging made from recyclable PET. The material used is described as being made from a minimum of 60% post-consumer waste and is suitable for direct food contact. Supplied in flat sheets, the material is converted into bespoke designs for markets such as food, confectionary and personal care.

Organoid UK will be showing off its natural surface packaging, which is bonded with bio-based resins, for the first time at a packaging exhibition. The biodegradable design is said to retain the organic texture and scent of the material and highlights the potential of agrarian products in the industry.

Shredhouse will display its range of shredded void fills, including cellophane made from wood pulp. All of its papers are biodegradable, recyclable and sustainably sourced.

Tinware Direct will be launching a new service to allow customers to create bespoke labels in an array of design options available in limited runs. The company will also display two new designs; the rose gold heart and rose gold seamless tins.

Applic’Etains will be bringing its personalised adhesive pewter labels to London. Available in sheets for manual administration or rolls for automatic application, labels can be customised using a range of shapes and colours to suit individual needs and can be applied to products including spirit bottles and candles.

Sampling Innovations will present its range of cosmetic solutions, including Self Sampling. The machine has been developed to dispense a single fragrance or makeup sample at the press of a button.

Premi Spa will display its collection of packaging for the beauty industry made from Green PET. The plastic used is derived from sugarcane, rather than petroleum, a renewable resource said to benefit from lower carbon emissions than traditional PE plastic.

Allan & Co will launch its new design service for the wider packaging market, having previously specialised in bespoke embossed tins for the confectionary industry.

James Drake-Brockman, divisional director of Easyfairs’ Packaging Portfolio said, “We are very proud to have established Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London as the premier packaging event in the capital and are thrilled to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the show this year.

“We are delighted to welcome back so many exhibitors from last year’s show after 78% rebooked their stands, and we are also excited to host a series of new suppliers, all with innovative and exciting packaging solutions to share. The launches taking place at the show offer visitors the unrivalled opportunity to visit the future of packaging by experiencing the most cutting-edge products on the market. I for one can’t wait to walk the aisles and see it all first-hand when the show opens.”

Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London will be held at the Olympia on 11 & 12 September. An extended interview with James Drake-Brockman will appear in the July issue of Packaging Scotland.
