Recent Development

In April 2022, Mondi presented innovative food industry packaging choices at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, Germany. Products with two trays for packing provide fresh food producers with recyclable options, which will help cut down on food waste. PerFORMing Monoloop and Mono Formable PP will offer high-barrier food protection, demonstrating the critical role that packaging plays throughout the supply chain. 

In March 2022, In collaboration with Koa, Berry Global Group introduced bottles for body cleaners and moisturisers that are composed entirely of recycled plastic. Berry, an industry pioneer in sustainability, shares Koa's aim of improving environmental impact via streamlined operations, consistently involved partners, and optimised goods. Because Koa and Berry have a similar aim for sustainable packaging, Koa selected Berry as their supplier for this project. 

In January 2022, Waddington Europe, a division of Novolex, created a new recyclable tray specifically for meat, fish, and poultry products. Rather than employing polyethene or an adhesive layer, as is typically the case with modified environment packaging lids, the Piranh container's lid is sealed with raised teeth around the sealing flange (MAP). 

Market Dynamics:


Growing demand for extended shelf life and enhanced product visibility- The market is partly driven by consumers' increasing desire for longer shelf lives and better product visibility. Skin packaging provides superior product protection, maintaining the integrity and freshness of the packaged goods. Additionally, it gives the goods excellent visibility so that customers can see the real thing and its qualities, which may encourage them to purchase. Skin packaging is becoming increasingly popular across various industries due to consumers' desire for longer shelf lives and eye-catching packaging options.

Plastic films are often used in skin packaging, which adds to plastic waste and environmental pollution. The need for ecologically friendly alternative packaging materials is rising as people become more conscious of sustainability and eco-friendly packaging solutions. Due to the necessity for businesses to address these issues and implement more environmentally friendly packaging options, this could be problematic for the skin packaging market's growth.


Growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions- Businesses are concentrating on creating skin packaging technologies that employ recyclable materials and cut down on plastic waste in response to growing consumer preferences for green packaging and environmental concerns. The main drivers of this trend are the desire to comply with regulations, lessen carbon impact, and promote sustainability. Furthermore, the development of creative eco-friendly skin packaging solutions that offer product visibility, protection, and appeal to ecologically concerned customers is made possible by developments in materials and technologies. This tendency is anticipated to fuel market expansion and impact packaging tactics in a range of sectors.
