AIP announces inaugural Save Food Packaging Awards for ANZ

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has launched the inaugural Save Food Packaging Awards for Australia and New Zealand.

Developed in conjunction with the World Packaging Organisation (WPO), the Save Food Packaging Awards are designed to recognise companies who are developing innovative and sustainable packaging that minimises food losses and food waste, extends shelf life and improves the supply of food.

 “A key component of the Save Food Packaging Awards is to raise the profile of the critical role of packaging to reduce food waste and therefore reduce product’s overall environmental impact. It is time that packaging technologists are designing packaging to save food,” commented award chairman Mr Pierre Pienaar FAIP, CPP.

“Avoiding food waste is a critical packaging issue and one that food producers, manufacturers, brand owners, retailers and consumers need to better understand. Whilst the primary function of packaging is to protect the content, the function of packaging to reduce food waste is rarely discussed.

“The connection between packaging design and food waste needs to be discussed more openly in the industry. From field to fork there are a number of possibilities for food loss and waste to occur. It has been approximated that up to 50% of the edible food produced, does not reach the fork.”

“Avoiding and preventing food loss and waste can considerably limit the scope of additional resource requirements because approximately 30% of the food that is currently lost and wasted would already be sufficient to feed the starving world population.

“About 1.3 billion tons of food is actually thrown away each year, either because it spoils due to incorrect storage, inappropriate transport methods or it no longer meets the standards of the trade and consumers. In addition, a lot of food is not eaten by consumers because, for example, the quantities purchased by them are too large.”

Technical dinner on global packaging trends

The APPMA, in conjunction with the AIP, will be running a technical dinner on the 13th of April at Box Hill Golf Course, Victoria on ‘Global Packaging Trends – Global Growth Markets for Packaging’.

 The evening will be discussing the newly released Global Packaging Trends Report which is a market research study highlighting future packaging demand, product categories and opportunities for growth in packaging among fast-growing and maturing world economies.

Mark Dingley, Chairman of the APPMA, will speak to key trends that have been identified in the report including the three influencers making a mark in every region:

  1. Growing consumer awareness of health and wellness;
  2. Stronger influence of recycling and environmental issues;
  3. Increasing disposable income and purchasing power.

Other important regional trends that will be discussed in the presentation will include how globally, the report notes flexible plastic remains the dominant pack type, accounting for 29 per cent of the market, while PET bottles (12 per cent of the market) will be among the fastest growing, with 4.7 per cent CAGR. Bottled water is expected to add 135 billion units through 2019, accounting for 54 per cent of the absolute volume growth in PET bottle use. While beverage packaging drives growth in PET and glass, categories such as confectionery and biscuits prop up flexible packaging use.

APPMA set to Viva Las Vegas

The Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) is will be participating in the Partner Program at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, which will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Centre on the 28th to the 30th of September 2015.

According to Mr Mark Dingley, Chairman of the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), “this is the third consecutive year that the Association has been an exhibitor at PACK EXPO due to the continued high levels of interest in the Australian market attained each year from attending the event.” 

“Exhibiting at PACK EXPO each year allows the APPMA to raise the global profile of our association and our member companies. Our member companies represent a very large range of leading international brands in the packaging and processing machinery and allied components industries and we welcome companies who are looking for agency or distribution opportunities in Australia to come and visit us on stand 1343 in the Association Pavilion.” Mr Dingley said. 

To gloss, or not to gloss?

A decade or two ago, supermarket aisles were full of high gloss packaging, but things have changed.

A gloss finish has been aesthetically pleasing to consumers, because of its high reverse print quality and clinical reflective finish. It presented a pack image that is high quality, fresh and professionally produced. This was achieved by initially reverse printing an image to a transparent film (like BOPP or PET) and then laminating this to a secondary substrate. This was particularly interesting for packs that were traditionally packed in surface printed papers and films, where most surface printed packs would look 'tired' after pack handling. Gloss varnishes were lacking and could not come close to the reverse printed film laminations. Additionally the reverse printed film presented the perfect scuff resistance and also allowed packs to be printed in the seal areas. These glossy packs stood out on the supermarket shelves and everyone wanted it.  

Form Fill and Seal packs, like powder sachets, chip packs and labels, started to convert to the superior laminations. Based on the varnishes unmatched gloss performance against reverse printed films, this trend continued until a majority of flexible packs were using the high gloss reverse printed films.  Eventually there was a continuous line of gloss packs on the supermarket shelves. Furthermore, traditional PE coated Paper wraps like ice-cream lollies were being replaced with gloss finished surface printed BOPP's. Paper/Foil/PE type sachets were going to more extremes of adding an extra PET film, gloss finishing the more costly PET/Paper/Foil/PE laminate. From a marketing perspective, it became frustrating to achieve product differentiation on the super glossy super market shelves. 

Over the last five years, in response, there has been a gradual reversal from gloss to a matte as a point of difference. A more natural looking paper appearance has become more appealing to consumers from an environmental perspective. The matte finish also better suits the image of certain products being packed. Chip packs are an example of this. About eight years ago only a few 'kettle' type chips were packed with a matte finish. Today the matte finish has spread across many other chip types and brands. Similarly, some of the chocolate coated confectionery packs have also moved from gloss to matte finishes. Interestingly, it has been said that consumers have a subconscious association of gloss packs and 'weight gain'. Packing theses type of products in a matte finish breaks this subconscious association and creates a more healthy perception of the product.  

There is also a growing trend in combining a matte and gloss finish on the packs. This involves a specialised printing process, but presents unique finishes on the packs, where the packs are predominately matte, but have a gloss finish enhancements over the brand names or specific images. This is now popular and frequently seen on ground coffee or coffee bean packs. 

More recent printing technologies have developed varnishes and inks that present much improved scuff resistance plus matte and gloss outcomes, which rival the reverse printed films. One can now achieve excellent print finishes and quality in paper laminates, making it easier for consumers to tear open the packs or sachets.
