    Top five packaging trends for 2015

    The five trends that will impact packaging and associated industries in 2015 are: the growing importance of sustainability; the demand for supply chain transparency; the rise of new barrier/coating packaging technologies; the continued emphasis on lightweight packaging; and the importance of delivering frustration-free packaging.

Businesses should address how they are implementing supply chain traceability in terms of sourcing, manufacturing, transport and end of life cycle.
