Experts from the packaging industry met in Barcelona to discuss the latest developments in a fast-moving sector
The annual "Global Packaging Summit" features the latest packaging solutions and industry hot topics such as sustainability, new regulations, innovative cost-reduction strategies, new materials and how to grow brands through packaging design.
As an event sponsor, Lecta reinforces its position as leader in paper solutions for the packaging industry. This year, Lecta presented its Metalvac metallized papers and Creaset one-side coated papers for labels and flexible packaging.
