SPOTLIGHT ON SECURITY

Millions of rands are spent annually on protecting brands against counterfeiting and pilferage. And, as crime syndicates become more sophisticated, it’s becoming commonplace to combine overt and covert features such as invisible forensic tags, holograms, colour-shifting inks, embossing, barcodes, RFID-chips and tamper-indicating materials. 

Our September issue includes a report on the latest material and security technologies being implemented to ensure supply chain integrity and consumer trust.

 

MASTERBATCH MOMENTUM

Masterbatch developments continue apace, giving plastics packaging converters an efficient, reliable and cost-effective way to add colour, special effects and/or performance enhancements to their products.

We track the latest advances, and encourage suppliers to share their news and expertise with PPM’s captive audience of plastics packaging converters.

 

ADVANCES IN ATMOSPHERE PACKAGING

Today, post-harvest shelf-life extension of fresh fruit and vegetables is an ongoing challenge for producers, packers and retailers alike, and modified/controlled atmosphere packaging (MAP/CAP) plays a key role in this field.

But MAP/CAP is much more than just packaging. It's all about understanding the dynamics and relationships between products, processing and packaging, and marrying this knowledge to the requisite investments in technology.

We plan to cover the wider atmosphere packaging spectrum, not least advancements, in this issue!

HOUSEHOLD PRODUCT PACKAGING TRENDS

The use of PET is steadily gaining global market share in the packaging of household products, traditionally dominated by HDPE and PP. In 2016, PET packages accounted for 8-billion units in this market. This growth is expected to continue at an annual average of 3% to 2020.

PPM investigates whether this PET trend is applicable in the South African household products market as well as the latest advances in labelling and decorative finishes for this segment. Get in touch to share news of your developments and services for this important market.
