In this issue of Inside Packaging, we find out how we can maximise paper's potential to combat plastic use, explore how sustainable packaging solutions can help cut down on food waste, and hear from Assobioplastiche about the importance of the EN 13432 standard.

We also examine the role of labelling regulations in light of the recent Pret a Manger inquest, take a look at how packaging can add value to the skincare sector, and examine whether paper bags are likely to completely replace plastic anytime soon.

Finally, we ask whether the world is ready for more biodegradable packaging, investigate the impact of China's ban on plastic waste importation, and profile an alternative to flexible plastic.
