How Sustainability Is Pushing the Boundaries of Flexible Packaging

There are two things most revolutions have in common. The first is the number of challenges they present in our lives. The second one is the lack of acceptance-or rather the negationism-they place on a great number of the people who live it.

This has held true for the sustainable packaging revolution. Most of the already ongoing transitions into more sustainable packaging were the main drivers of Big Brands during 2020. At the same time, the business of food service delivery and, consequently, the single-use packaging that revolves around it, have dramatically increased.

Listen to Eduard go through the main challenge both trends are presenting to packaging converters and Big Brands.
