Product launches revealed at Packaging Innovations
Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Several companies are to use next month's Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging show as a launchpad for new products.
Quadpack will unveil a line of aluminium- and wood-sheathed droppers that cover bottles. The 30ml packs have a viewing window to see the product.
Also on display at the event, to be held at Olympia London for the first time, on 16 and 17 September will be Quadpack's new Liquid Foundation range, under the Q-Line brand.
Packs come with a choice of push-button or tetine droppers. All have glass bottles with an extra-thick base and can be decorated with plush features such as aluminium collars or wooden caps.
Smurfit Kappa will be launching its new KartonFlute Lite. At 750 microns the company said it offers high-quality offset printing with tight registration and finer screens for better detail and colour fidelity.
The product does not have the set-up costs associated with pre-print or litho laminated corrugated board, according to the company.
Amberley claims to offer total grease resistance with its new self-adhesive paper, Tintoretto Gesso greaseproof labels, while Winter & Company will launch Touché, a soft covering material with a silky matt finish for luxury packaging.
Event director Alison Church said: “Print will focus large this year and we have a lot of paper suppliers showing several interesting finishes.”
She said the show guide front cover would sport the new Touché material from Winter & Company, black on one side and white on the other.
New features will run alongside established show favourites surrounded by around 175 exhibitors, she said. One of the new elements will be the brand innovation programme.
Nine creative agencies, including Webb deVlam London and Icicle Group, will discuss how to develop brands with high-quality packaging design.
The Retail Institute meanwhile will chair a new great innovation debate, exploring the term 'innovation' in relation to packaging.
Also new for this year is the rising star scheme, which tries to help young brands or start-ups find the right suppliers and products to enhance their brands.
Once again the show will feature 'learnshop' seminars, with speakers from Müller, Liberty, Marks & Spencer and Nabeel Perfumes.
Meanwhile the Luxury Packaging conference will host Bacardi, Diageo, Harrods, Crabtree & Evelyn and Hotel Chocolat.
The drinks symposium returns with Sauvelle, a new French vodka, and Funkin Cocktails among the headline acts.
The Beauty Symposium, run in association with the Red Tree Consultancy, is also back with a line-up of well known speakers from cosmetics, beauty, luxury and retail.
