Packaging News

In a world-first for Cadbury, brand owner Mondelēz International is sourcing recycled plastic from Taghleef Industries for flexible wrappers to be printed and converted by Amcor. The new packaging, with 30% recycled content, will be on shelf in Australia from September next year.

There is much on offer in the latest issue of PKN, with 84 action-packed pages covering the latest industry news, trends and developments, and every aspect of packaging that impacts the full value chain, from sustainability, to design, innovation and industry leadership.

Beverage packaging waste will soon be a prime building material, allowing Aussie builders to replace plywood, particle board, and plaster board with low carbon, sustainable construction boards.
