Brand owners and supermarkets are seeing the demand for being more environmentally aware.

  • Retail and consumer focus is firmly fixed on the damaging environmental effects of packaging around the world
  • This is impacting directly on supply chain choices
  • Now is the perfect opportunity for the carton print industry to promote the environmental credibility of their brands
  • Now is the time for the carton packaging print sector and key suppliers to work together and drive the message up the supply chain

Many Carton converters don’t realise that they aren’t maximizing the available revenues from their recyclable waste.

  • The recycling markets and material values have changed since the China waste bans in January 18
  • Many waste collectors now aren’t able to offer best value for your carton board waste
  • Grades of waste carton board have higher or lower values depending upon various factors
  • Many carton converters are losing £’000s each year in revenue for their waste boards
