Changing the world takes smarts

LET’S START WITH SMART PACKAGING

Our lives are unimaginable without packaging protecting the goods essential to our health and comfort. To ensure that these demands do not burden our world, it is imperative that we develop sustainable and innovative packaging solutions. While we are interested in fostering our internal and external innovation potential in all areas, our first – but not our last – Open Innovation Focus Field is dedicated to Smart Packaging. 

Calling all ideas that help solve packaging-related problems, or unmet needs related to packaging. We’re open to any and all of your thoughts, so don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you!

How can packaging contribute to an improved product performance?

Consumer good packaging contributes very rarely to the product performance during its intended application. Additional benefits like intended controlled release of active ingredients belong to the key elements of functional packaging. Due to this, we are interested in any chemical solutions for primary and secondary packaging.

How can smart packaging further prolong the shelf life of products? 

Technical limitations in harvesting, transporting and storage, or simple consumer behavior contribute to food spoilage. A major factor in reducing food spoilage lies in the packaging.
