The future of packaging

At Empack Stockholm 2023, packaging trends, new techniques, materials, innovations, packaging solutions and design will be presented. Among leading suppliers and start-ups, we see solutions for the industry’s challenges. On our stages and in conference rooms, we will discuss AI, technology development, end-of-line solutions for trade and 3PL and of course upcoming directives and laws to deal with.

In the packaging industry, the material has an obvious focus, as does the focus on sustainability and circularity. Can packaging be designed from better materials, with smarter design, the total resource consumption will be less. Working for smart use of packaging and packaging materials contributes to reduced climate impact, from the food itself as from the packaging.

But it is not the legislation that will drive innovation in sustainability. It is the value we create with the products and services delivered. Through digitization, new business models, automation and innovation, we can drive the issue of sustainability faster.
