The new theme portal packaging-360.com, launched at FachPack last September, is now available in English.
“The timing couldn’t have been better, since it coincides with the start of BIOFACH, the world’s leading fair for organic food products,” says a delighted Heike Slotta, Director Exhibitions, NürnbergMesse. “This now gives our international customers and prospective customers the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and innovations in packaging throughout the year, and to pick up inspiration from the articles and interviews.”
Rainer Miserre, Publishing Director at dfv Mediengruppe, comments: “About 70 percent of all packaging is used in the food and beverage industry. The current calls to use mainly sustainable packaging mean there is a particularly strong demand for information and education right now.”
Portal for brand manufacturers, manufacturers and packaging industry
packaging-360.com is a collaborative project between Frankfurt-based dfv Mediengruppe and FachPack, the trade fair for packaging, processes and technology, based in Nuremberg. The portal is intended to serve as a link to the packaging industry for brand manufacturers and manufacturers of consumer goods. Its focus is on the food and beverage industry. Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), in particular, place heavy demands on both manufacturers and the trade.
Via its four sections, “Inspiration”, “Brand”, “Image” and “Experts”, packaging-360.com reports on new developments in the world of packaging. The articles published there cover technology and packaging, design, marketing and markets. The portal also covers themes relating to politics, society and the environment, and offers examples of best practices and expert opinions.
