Avery Dennison on 17 March 2022 announced it has acquired the linerless label technology developed by Catchpoint, a UK company based in Yorkshire, England.

The purchase covers Catchpoint’s patents, brand, trade secrets and know-how. Arrangements have been made to ensure the continued support of the Catchpoint team. Under the agreement, Avery Dennison will honor Catchpoint’s existing commercial agreements.

“With the acquisition of Catchpoint, Avery Dennison will have intellectual property that helps us fulfill two of our main 2030 sustainability goals – to deliver innovations that advance the circular economy, and to reduce environmental impact in operations and technology,” says Noel Kasmi, vice-president of marketing, Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials EMENA. “As we are pushing to make linerless labels available widely to our customers, this technology will help us move more quickly, enabling sustainable and cost-saving solutions to reach our customers around the world more rapidly. This is world-class technology that will deliver real benefits to our customers and the environment.”

A key strategic priority for Avery Dennison is to innovate in the area of more sustainable product solutions. Linerless labels are one area of opportunity in this area, with the potential not only to reduce liner waste but also related production and transport costs as well.

“We are excited for Avery Dennison to be acquiring our technology with the intent of making its products more sustainable. Combining our technology with Avery Dennison’s scale, market position and industrial know-how represents an amazing opportunity, a worthy destination for our journey to bring linerless labelling to the market,” said Mike Cooper, business development director of Catchpoint.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
