5 mind-blowing packaging innovations that we discovered at Interpack 2023

As a young Indian start-up, it was an exciting opportunity for us to attend Interpack 2023, one of the largest packaging exhibitions in the world. Interpack is held once every three years in Dusseldorf, Germany, and showcases the latest trends and innovations in the packaging industry. It provides a platform for manufacturers, suppliers, and packaging experts from all over the world to come together and explore new possibilities for the industry.

During our visit to Interpack 2023, we witnessed some truly mind-blowing packaging innovations that are set to change the way we package and protect goods. Here are five of the most remarkable innovations that caught our attention:

  1. Can robots replace cranes?

One of the most intriguing innovations we came across was a collaborative robot, or cobot, made in Europe for easy palletization, loading and unloading, and material handling with zero labor dependency. This is a game-changer for the packaging industry as it can reduce the need for heavy machinery and increase efficiency in packaging and warehousing.

  1. When life gives you leaves, you make Releaf!

We were fascinated by Releaf, a French start-up that makes paper using fallen leaves from trees across their country. This innovative process reduces waste while providing a sustainable alternative to traditional paper products.

  1. An automatic cross-strapping machine to speed up packaging processes in warehouses – Yay or Nay?

Another exciting innovation we came across was an automatic cross-strapping machine designed to speed up packaging processes in warehouses. This machine can reduce the time and labor required for strapping and increase productivity.

  1. CornPack – 100% biodegradable protective packaging made using corn waste

CornPack, innovated by a German company, is an environmentally friendly protective packaging solution made from corn waste, a by-product of corn flakes production. It is a sustainable alternative to plastic packaging such as thermocol and plastic styrofoam, and it is 100% biodegradable, making it an excellent choice for eco-conscious consumers and businesses.

  1. A circular loom made in India, using open mesh fabrics for weaving light-weight packaging for multiple applications

Finally, we were impressed by a circular loom innovated in India, made using open mesh fabrics (such as jute) to create economical gunny bags for bulk storage across industries such as food, cement, construction materials, etc. This innovation provides a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic bags, and it is cost-effective, making it a win-win for both businesses and the environment.

In conclusion, our visit to Interpack 2023 was an eye-opening experience that allowed us to witness some truly remarkable innovations in the packaging industry. As a young Indian start-up, it was our first visit to such a large exhibition, and we gained immense exposure and learning opportunities from industry stalwarts. We are excited about the future of sustainable packaging and the positive impact it can have on the environment and the world we live in.

For those looking for sustainable protective packaging solutions, EcoCushion Paper, a honeycomb paper packaging solution, is an excellent alternative to single-use plastic bubble wrapping. Made from kraft paper, the hexa structure in it offers superior cushioning and protection, while also being eco-friendly and sustainable. By using EcoCushion Paper, companies can reduce their environmental footprint and promote sustainability in the packaging industry.
