Several organisations representing the flexible packaging value chain in Europe call upon European legislators to provide a progressive and forward-looking definition of packaging recyclability, befitting of a circular economy for all categories of packaging formats and materials.

Raw material price inflation continues to have a major impact for the flexible packaging industry, although the rate of increase eased slightly in Q3 compared with the unprecedented levels seen in the previous three months.

A life cycle assessment study, carried out by the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (ifeu), shows flexible pouches are better packaging options, in terms of environmental performance, for olives and pasta sauce.

There has been tension in the polymer market for some time which is very concerning for the members of Flexible Packaging Europe (FPE). Deliveries of all relevant polymers to the industry continue to be unpredictable in terms of volumes and time of delivery and therefore jeopardize many production plans.
