Activities of the PrintCity Alliance attract a great deal of interest in Poland

| PI 268

The members of the PrintCity Alliance were very pleased with the Packaging Innovations event in Warsaw. The seminar in particular, held there for the first time, offered new opportunities to discuss innovations, environmental issues and the Polish market.

Food safety, sustainability, safety solutions and digitalisation

Food safety and sustainability, but also safety solutions and digital innovations were the main topics of interest among the many visitors. The members of the Alliance had a wide range of corresponding solutions and technologies on display at their shared booth. These activities once again made Packaging Innovations the ideal marketplace for exchanging experiences on products and the Polish market.


Jaroslaw Wozny, Technical Support & Sales, Epple Druckfarben AG

In Warsaw we have seen rising market awareness with regard to our sustainable ink systems. We had in-depth discussions with potential end customers who were actively seeking forward-looking, sustainable solutions. The experts were especially interested in our innovative packaging concepts with BoFood® Organic, the ink system for potential direct food contact. Alternatives to lamination of printed products and packaging were also a hot topic.

Marcin Łaba, Technical Service Director CEE, Metsä Board

Interest in our booth and the offer was even bigger than during previous years exhibition. People were mostly interested in our competition winning designs but also there were more and more questions about food safety. We were happy to present solutions in this field of needs – we discussed plenty about purity of Metsä Board primary fibre paperboards and Metsä Board Eco-Barrier solutions.

But the most important during the fairs was the opportunity to meet our business partners and discuss market and business related matters.

Taking all aspects into consideration we can firmly state: this was a good event. See You next year.
