Packaging Innovations of the Future

Part 2 of the Packaging of the Future Series

As we saw in the first Packaging of the Future webinar, opportunities for product innovation can be driven by shifts in consumer behavior, interests, as well as other macro trends in the marketplace. But the potential desirability of a new product idea alone is not enough to drive innovation success. For that, we look to the intersection of people (desirability + usability), technical feasibility and business viability.

In this second part of the series, come back to the future of packaging with Martin Johnson, Sr. Director of Technology at Jabil Packaging Solutions, and Toriono Granger, Managing Director at Radius, for a look at the technological trends taking place within the plastic packaging industry, including:

  • Sustainable Packaging
  • Smart Packaging
  • Devicification
  • Packaging for e-commerce
  • and more packaging innovations!

What's more, we reveal the evaluation and development processes that can lead to the "sweet spot" of innovation success for your brand. So grab a seat, because this is one opportunity you won't want to miss!
