Welcome to 2020. 2019 was certainly fast paced with uncertainty and opportunities influencing the industry in equal measure. 2020’s packaging trends look set to be full of changes again, as the plastics/ glass debate unfolds further, set against a Brexit backdrop.
Nick Parker, Aegg’s Marketing Director, interviewed Pawel Wieczorek, Aegg’s Commercial Director and glass expert, for his thoughts on packaging supplies and the changing nature of the demand for glass food and drink packaging.
Celebrating its 10th year of business, Aegg, will be exhibiting at stand C27 of Easyfairs’ Packaging Innovations at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC) on 26-27 February 2020 (you can register to attend for here).
With Aegg’s turnover almost doubling since this time last year, Aegg has invested £millions into its packaging logistics infrastructure to facilitate growing demand of its recyclable glass and plastic food and drink packaging supplies ranges. This means that Aegg’s ability to manage the supply chain (for example, importing glass bottles and jars and delivering to a customer’s factory doors in the UK) is now more seamless due to bringing several services in-house.
As Aegg’s PR consultant, I was invited to attend Aegg’s company briefing at its HQ in Andover, where members from the senior management team updated staff on how the company is doing in relation to its glass and plastic packaging supplies to the food and drink markets. The same company briefing was also presented to the team members at the company’s logistics site in Suffolk, too.
