An overview of Packaging Innovations Birmingham 2014

I’ve had a busy time lately putting content on FoodBev.com following Packaging Innovations Birmingham 2014, and this blog entry is a convenient place for you to see it all in one go.

Andreas Exarheas and Bill Bruce actually attended the event, and I caught up with them back in the office to talk to them about what they’d seen and what their thoughts were. The podcast for that interview is right here.

Andreas also wrote a blog about his first time at Packaging Innovations, while Bill conducted a few video interviews with some new faces and some more familiar to us, such as Stuart Kellock from Label Apeel.

In the following videos, Lucy Frankel from Vegware talks about procurement, sustainability and ‘eco packaging’, and how ‘clarity is key when it comes to compostable labels’.

Lars Liebscher from BASF talked to Bill about ecovio biodegradable plastic and the world’s first compostable coffee capsule. He also talked about the company’s association with Beanarella.

In this video, Nick Brewin from Silgan talks about the brand’s new microwaveable plastic can food container, and the unique manufacturing process that goes into making it.

Nathan Daniel from CS Labels discusses Color Logic technology, and provides a demonstration of the company’s augmented reality app using an iPad and a Madness Gladness beer poster.

Finally, we produced a modest gallery of photos, which you can find on our Flickr channel.
