In this issue

In this yearbook issue of Inside Packaging, we take a look back at this year’s biggest stories, including the industry's struggle to match consumer expectations of sustainability, whether squid protein could be the answer to plastic waste,  and TerraCycle's circular economy platform. 

Also, we look at how Tetra Pak is adapting for Industry 4.0, investigate the possibilities of a tuneable bioplastic, and learn more about the digitalisation of the supply chain.

Finally, we explore how packaging can be used to prevent counterfeiting, discover how pharmaceuticals are being kept safe as packaging evolves, and investigate the future of labelling.
