French West Indies fruit juice company, Jus de Fruits Caraïbes, has partnered with creative technology studio Appetite Creative and food processing and packaging company Tetra Pak, to build a fun and interactive connected packaging experience which raises awareness about its sustainability credentials and gives back to the local community.

The smart packaging campaign, featuring Schweppes International’s exotic fruit drinks brand Banga, utilizes a web app-based connected experience accessed via QR codes. Users can play an entertaining fall game where they are encouraged to slice fruit to create fruit juice. Every time users participate a small donation is made to a local children’s charity guaranteeing support for those that need it.

The connected experience also contains a quiz to help customers understand how to recycle the beverage cartons and understand the brand better. It also features an education section which explains the environmental benefits and how to use the new tethered caps as well as outlining the positive environmental practices committed to by the juice brand. In addition to charity donations, quiz leaderboard winners can win Banga branded prizes.

“We are proud to be the first local company to offer connected packaging thanks to the support of Tetra Pak. It was a new experience for us and Appetite Creative was able to support us with absolute professionalism,” said Cécile Bouvier, director of Marketing R&D at Banga.

“The Banga connected packaging experience is a great way to involve consumers in our joint sustainability journey with Jus de Fruits Caraïbes. Banga is one of the first brands deploying the new tethered caps that will be mandatory by the European Single Use Plastic Directive as of July 3rd 2024. What better way to introduce the new caps on the market than with a fun and educative experience powered by Appetite Creative?” said Cloé Morel, Marketing manager at Tetra Pak.

“We’re seeing more and more brands invest in connected experiences to help consumers become eco-minded and sustainable, and this campaign takes that one step further by doing good through incentivized charity donations. Jus de Fruits Caraïbes has made it easy and fun for consumers to recycle and give back to their local community – it’s a win for everyone,” said Jenny Stanley, Managing director at Appetite Creative.

The web app tracks real-time interaction, such as buying habits, product preferences, average engagement time, location, scan rate, number of visitors, return visitors and social media shares, including GDPR-compliant personal data to enable the brand to optimize its marketing and better understand consumers.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
