Swedbrand Group, a packaging partner to some of the world’s most iconic brands, is exhibiting at Luxe Pack Paris scheduled for 31 August through 1 September at the Carreau du Temple. During the show, Swedbrand will be displaying a selection of premium rigid boxes produced in its highly automated state-of-the-art factory in Gdansk, Poland. This facility uses the latest in equipment and materials to support Swedbrand’s sustainability objectives and those of the brands it supports. 

During the show, Swedbrand will also be unveiling an entirely new type of hybrid premium rigid box constructed of corrugated board with an extra paper laminate. This creates a board that has significantly lower cost, does not affect the overall quality of the premium rigid boxes, and can be processed using the Gdansk factory automated box lines.

“We are especially excited to be unveiling this new hybrid product at Luxe Pack Paris,” said Zaid Bunni, founding partner and director at Swedbrand. “With our automated factory in Gdansk, Poland, we have been able to experiment with a wide range of substrate types and combinations to develop innovative new products such as this hybrid pack, always with sustainability in mind.”

Swedbrand corrugated box is lighter and cheaper 

Swedbrand’s new hybrid rigid corrugated box is suitable for machining and will significantly reduce both raw material consumption and production costs without any difference in perceived quality. Since corrugated cardboard is 2.5 times lighter than conventional cardboard, it can be easily compressed, unlike grey board.

 “This means that our new hybrid premium rigid box has a smaller environmental footprint than conventional premium rigid boxes,” Bunni added. “Lighter weight equals a reduction in the CO2 footprint of boxes during transport, and its ability to be compressed simplifies end-of-life processing as well.”

In other sustainability moves, the company reports that its Gdansk factory has no industrial water consumption and uses more environmentally friendly non-animal glues. Paper and board are sourced from European mills and contain recycled content as well as wood pulp acquired from sustainably managed forests. 

The plant is heated with more efficient and environmentally friendly natural gas, and having many skylights helps to reduce the need for interior lighting. With these and other initiatives, Swedbrand’s Gdansk plant consumes a relatively limited amount of electricity considering the volumes of premium boxes it is producing.

In addition, as will be demonstrated at Luxe Pack Paris, Swedbrand experts are well-versed in unique ways to meet the needs of brands for economical premium rigid boxes. Its factory location in Poland means that transport of finished boxes to European locations is not only several weeks faster compared to the transport time from Asia, but also less costly, often by as much as a factor of 10.

Swedbrand experts will be available during the show to consult with brands looking for innovative and attractive premium rigid box solutions that are also in compliance with both regulatory and consumer demands for a reduced carbon footprint.

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.
