elcome to the Spring issue of Green Packaging International – published at a time when the world is moving inexorably towards the goal of sustainable development and all that means for the packaging industry in 2021 and beyond.


Although the retail trade has continued to struggle against the


unrelenting impact of Covid-19, home deliveries have expanded exponentially whilst supermarkets and other grocery outlets have continued to demand packaging that not only protects the consumer, but also reflects growing demands to reduce plastic pollution of the environment. We commend food and drink brands that are already replacing secondary plastic packaging with recyclable and sustainable materials. Read more about this inside.


Packaging manufacturers are also playing their part by the


development of new production processes, the adoption of more sophisticated automation, process control, energy savings and the timely delivery of finished products to their customers.


We are pleased to report that the number of readers of Green Packaging


International pre-registered to receive the magazine has now topped the 9,000 mark. It was also interesting to note that some 89% of these opted to receive the full PDF version by e-mail while they wait for the printed issue.


As Green Packaging International aims to present more industry news


in every issue, it is reassuring to see that the magazine is already being considered a valuable medium of record.
