esponding to unfolding consumer trends in timely manner is a key prerequisite for a successful branding strategy and, by extension, effective package design. But with modern-day consumers being so spoilt for choice on the store shelves and so exposed to an endless stream of opinion and dubious facts circulating en masse on social media networks and other online platforms, distinguishing between lasting trends and passing fads is becoming an increasingly tricky task. While there’s no doubt that modern digital technology has given consumers the means to become more well-informed and better educated on a broad range of subjects—from food waste and environmental sustainability to organic farming and healthy nutrition—there is no conclusive evidence that today’s consumers are necessarily using that information to make better choices for themselves or the planet. In fact, it sometimes seems that the only predictable thing about modern consumer behavior nowadays is its unpredictability. For all the talk about healthy eating, for example, obesity rates are on the rise throughout most of the western world. For all the posturing about the impending dangers of global warming, everyone whines with righteous indignation every time the price of gasoline goes up a couple of cents. According to Jean-Pierre Lacroix, founder and president of the highly successful Toronto-based branding agency Shikatani Lacroix Inc., interpreting consumer behavior in the new digital age requires a new skillset and understanding of what really drives modern consumers’ purchasing decisions. “The most recent U.S. election has reminded all

of us that the consumer is irrational, and that Big Data predictive tools and conventional research methodologies cannot effectively gauge future behaviour,” Lacroix states in his recent blog, titled Ten ThinkBlink Predictions to Consider as you Plan for 2017. (Dec. 22, 2016) “We will start seeing the rise of neuroscience research as a more effective tool in understanding how people feel, which has proven to be the true predicator to what they will do,” he adds. “Research firms arguing neuroscience is not effective will join the same voices that foretold us movies in color with sound would never take hold.” That being the case, brands will have to work harder and smarter than ever before to earn and retain brand loyalty from the increasingly finicky consumers, Lacroix proclaims. “Brands will refocus their efforts on creating unique and compelling brand experiences well beyond conventional approaches to marketing,” he states. “We will see more pop-up stores, experiential programs, and the rise of augmented reality apps that drive greater storytelling and brand engagement. “We will also see the continued growth of online retailers, such as Amazon and eBay, opening physical stores as a strong vehicle in gaining market share and new customers,” Lacroix predicts. “We will also see the blurring of conventional digital signing found in stores and fast-food chains with mobile devices, smart watches and the ‘Internet of Things.’ “This will bring a new channel for brand marketers to connect with consumers at the moment-ofpurchase—the ultimate decisive split second when preference is converted into a tangible sale.” For better or not, welcome to 2017!

PACKAGING DESIGN STALWART LIFE OF THE PARTY There’s nothing like a good housewarming party to mark a move to a bigger and better home, and for long-time Canadian packaging design specialists Pigeon Brands, moving to a new headquarters in downtown Toronto late last year was a moment worth celebrating on an epic scale. Featuring a live jazz band and a splashy tribute to the speakeasy boom of the 1930s, complete with a classic Rolls Royce parked at the front door, the early December soirée provided a classy stetting for the invited guests to enjoy a lively display of some of the company’s past and current package design creations for leading multinational brands like Tim Horton’s, Kraft, VUSE, IKEA, Corby Spirit and Wine, Hershey’s and Irving, among many others. “The event gave us a chance to not only invite our clients and VIPs to see our new office space, but also to showcase our work while saying ‘thank you’ to our valued clients,” said company founder and chief executive officer Thomas Pigeon. “Pigeon is fiercely independent and we’ve been building brands for nearly 40 years,” said Thomas. “You don’t get to succeed with Top Tier clients over that span of time without providing excellent work and maintaining genuine relationships with those who matter most—our clients and their teams.” Located at 179 John Street near the heart of the city’s popular Entertainment District, the new office is now home to two Pigeon Brands creative teams previously housed in Oakville, Ont., and Toronto’s Liberty Village neighborhood. Now operating out of two regional locations in Toronto and Montreal, Pigeon Brands is also expecting to open up a new branch office in New York City later this year. “Thanks to our hard-working and exceptionally talented team, we work with some of the best brands in the business,” said Pigeon Brands managing

director Vince Antonacci. “We’re poised for further growth for 2017 and well beyond.” Consistently ranking among the top independent brand design and communication agencies in North America, Pigeon Brands’ core competencies include strategy, planning, packaging, in-store, POS/POP (point-of-sale/point-of-purchase), OOH (out-ofhome), digital, activation and brand amplification. Added the party’s master of ceremonies and business writer Shane Schick: “Pigeon is an agency that has stood the test of time, and whose management is leading the pack with cutting-edge innovation and design. “Based on their previous and ongoing successes, they are one of the best branding agencies in North America.”

LABEL PRINTER LOOKING FOR THE X-FACTOR WITH NEW DIGITAL INKJET PRESS As digital printing presses continue to become the norm rather than exception in today’s fast-changing graphic arts industries, Edmonton-headquartered Factor Forms and Labels is quickly becoming an exceptional champion of this digital revolution. Established in 1971, the company’s three “trade only” print shops in Edmonton, Victoria and Niagara Falls, Ont., have all been extensively upgraded over the past 10 years with periodic investment in newgeneration digital printing technologies to develop a strong competency in the so-called “short-run” printing segment. To keep that momentum going, the company recently became the first printer in Canada to purchase the Domino N610i digital UV inkjet label press from the Cambridge, U.K.-based Domino Printing Sciences PLC, which is the sixth digital printing press Factor Forms has installed since 2008. “Our focus for labels has been the ‘short run’ marketplace, and our exclusive use of digital label presses and laser die-cutters allows our dealers to be very successful going after this ‘short run’ business,” says Factor Forms and Labels vice-president and general manager Tom Moore. “But we are now seeing requests for larger

quantities,” Moore says, “and this new Domino N610i will allow our dealers to pursue mid-range quantity orders, especially those with multiple SKUs (stockkeeping units). “We also see texturing being a great ‘value add’ to what our dealers can offer their customers,” says Moore, citing the unique Textures by Domino capability of the new press to produce visually striking, digitally printed tactile, textured labels that enhance shelf presence and make the brandowners’ products stand out. “It provides a cost-effective way to create amazing ‘feel appeal’ without the use of expensive textured label materials,” says Moore, singling out the new press’s robust throughput speeds of up to 246 feet per minute and high-resolution of 600x600-dpi (dots per inch).

Brampton, Ont.-based flexible packaging converter Peel Plastic Products Ltd. struck gold last month at the second annual PAC Global Leadership Awards competition of PAC, Packaging Consortium for its key role in helping Greenville, S.C.-based pet-food producer Solid Gold Pet, LLC upgrade the packaging of its premium brand of cat and dog foods to a whole new level of package design excellence. Selected as a winner of the competition’s Best-ofShow Package Design award, Peel Plastic was lauded for its expertise in changing the Solid Gold brand’s flexible medium-sized bag packaging from the simple pinch-bottom format to flat-bottom bags that offers five different panels to display all the product information and highly engaging artwork, created by Tired Wolf Studios, LLC of Alpharetta, Ga. (Picture Above) “The bottom panel offers larger billboard space and works with the bright brand colors to deliver a more prominent message,” explained Peel Plastic business development manager Arnoud Prins. “We resized the bags to optimize their shelf-space allocation and create the perception of a fuller and better-filled bag, despite no change to formulation or fill weight.” Other two Best-of-Show awards handed out at the PAC Global Leadership Awards gala—hosted jointly with the Package Design magazine last month at Bonita Springs, Fla.—included: • Best-of-Show Package Innovation Award for the PurPod 100 compostable single-serve coffee pods developed by the Toronto-based Club Coffee LP, featuring a new logo designed by Aardvark Inc. of Oakville, Ont. • Best-of-Show Brand Marketing Award for the new Pizza Express takeout pizza boxes, designed by New York City-based branding agency Bulletproof.

TEAM EFFORT HITS THE SUSTAINABILITY SWEDE SPOT

M

aking the world a sweeter place is all part of the day’s work for companies like Pfeifer & Langen GmbH & Co. KG, a venerable family-owned German sugar processor operating in the historic German city of Cologne since 1870. Ranking as Germany’s third-largest sugar producer, the company in renowned across Europe for its iconic Diamant brand of retail sugar products covering about every type and variety of sugar that comes to mind— from refined, preserving and gelling sugars to sugar cubes, cane sugar, brown, dark, hybrid and so on. A couple of years ago, the company decided to make some of its retail product packaging more sustainable by switching from f lexible plastic packaging produced on high-speed VFFS (vertical form/fill/seal) machines to a fully-recyclable paper packaging format. Despite the good intentions, however, the idea had to overcome some serious challenges. For one, the existing VFFS machines could only use process polymer film or fully polymer-coated paper, and the production of monomaterial paper packaging was only possible with glued pre-made bags and paperbags and formed on mandrel wheel technology. Sensing an opportunity, leading German packaging machinery group Bosch Packaging Technology took it upon itself to develop just the right kind of VFFS system to do the job. Being one of the world’s leading suppliers of automated processing and packaging systems for a diverse range of CPG (consumer packaged goods) industries, designing the machine itself was not an issue, but finding the right paper to process was. Specifically, the monolayer paper bag would have to be fully-recyclable; completely dust- and spill-proof; durable and printable; easily reclosable for consumer convenience; and achieve high shelf impact with colorful graphic design.

The PME ZAP machine from Bosch Packaging Technology is the first VFFS sytem for high-speed filling of paperbags.

Packaging sales rep Marcus Velezmoro. “After receiving the letter of intent, we started to deliver a machine prototype, delivering the complete machine within 12 months to the customer’s site in STARTING POINT Elsdorf, Germany.” To get the ball rolling, Bosch Packaging reached According to Bosch, the newly-developed ZAPout to BillerudKorsnäs, a leading Swedish paper Module, incorporated into the modified PME series products manufacturer operating eight production VFFS machine, was designed to facilitate inline sites in Sweden, Finland and the U.K, with annual coating of a specially-formulated sealing agent onto revenues of nearly $3.3 billion. the minimal surface area of the monolayer paper.

with its new specially-formulated Axello ZAP paper, featuring enhanced strength and durability properties that make it a practical eco-friendly alternative for packaging sugar, grains, f lour, rice, powders and many other dry food products. “The combination of the strength, f lexibility and stiffness of Axello ZAP paper fits perfectly with Bosch’s technology,” says BillerudKorsnäs sales director Ole Paulussen, saying the company used its collective expertise to optimize the paper’s mechanical properties, while ensuring full compatibility with conventional municipal recycling streams. “The sustainable characteristics of this new material will greatly increase the product’s appeal to ecoconscious consumers,” Paulussen extols. “It’s a new and better packaging material that reliably withstands the stronger mechanical requirements in processing, with no additional polymer fractions, enabling retailers and consumer to profit from clean shelves, high product protection, and improved product quality,” he states. “Apart from being all-paper and therefore renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable,” Paulussen explains, “the new sealed paper packaging is also dust-tight and insect-proof. “This keeps food particles in and contamination out during transport and while on the shelf, thereby resulting in a cleaner environment and less food waste,” he says. “This revolutionary concept would not have been implemented without the collaborative effort of both companies,” adds Joachim Dittrich, head of Bosch Technology’s Liquid Food product division. “Together we have developed a solution that will change the packaging market.” “In addition to all the sustainability attributes, the new machine and material almost doubled the throughput speeds of the previously used VFFS machine at the Elsdorf sugar production plant, according to Pfeifer & Langen division manager Mark Oliver Burkhardt.

CUTTING COSTS “The new installation automated our production line and allowed us to cut operational costs,” Burkhardt recalls. “Due to the enhanced f lexibility of the customized machine, we are now able to switch between paper and film whenever we want. “Likewise, the quality of the ‘sealed paper packaging’ solution greatly exceeded our expectations,” says Burkhardt, complimenting the precise creasing of the corners of the paper bags enabled by the new PME ZAP machine. As Burkhardt relates, switching from film to Axello ZAP paperbags has also yielded significant costsavings all around. “When using films, we usually had to order it well in advance because film has relatively long delivery times compared to printed paper, due to the timeconsuming lamination and printing procedures. “With paper, we have the option of keeping unprinted material in stock and just have it printed quickly whenever we want,” he adds. “Not only is this a great convenience,” Burkhardt states, “it also gives us great f lexibility for co-packing and private-labeling.”

STRETCHING THE LIMITS Orion Packaging‘s first automaticallyguided portable stretchwrapper is designed to move itself around the pallet or product, wrapping as it goes and adapting to the load’s size and shape, rather than the other way around. Developed as a cost-effective alternative for busy industrial and retail product manufacturers encountering many unusual product and load dimensions, the new model AG-360 stretchwrapper is not confined to specific load or product dimensions, making it especially well-suited for pick-to-order distribution centers and other warehouse environments with many different load size and shape requirements. Ideal for many e-commerce retailers shipping a wide assortment of items on a daily basis, the AG-360 stretchwrapper features a powerful battery and a sophisticated power monitoring system that lengthens the time between charging for extended battery life, while the choice of 200- or 260-percent prestretch provides for extra variability in load stability requirements, as well as minimizing material usage.

Taking the Packaging Industry to New Levels by Rachel Morier, Director of Sustainability, PAC, Packaging Consortium Being part of an industry association is not just about getting a ticket to an annual conference and receiving a newsletter now and then – it is about being part of a much broader business community to collectively gather insights and expertise to stay ahead of the curve, to truly collaborate with stakeholders throughout the value chain to address important issues that one organization would not be able to tackle alone, and to celebrate the success of new ideas that promote the packaging industry’s progress and development.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Adapting to the changing sustainability landscape. PAC is actively participating in the ongoing discussion that surrounds the Waste-Free Ontario Act through its PAC NEXT initiative as stakeholders try to understand how the new regulatory framework will impact their organization. Because packaging changes faster than the current recycling system can adapt, the cost to manage the recovery of packaging materials is on the rise. Of course, packaging changes are driven by consumer demands for convenience, customization and cost competitiveness. These same factors are also driving the growth of e-commerce in which the primary packaging must be optimized to not only fit the appropriate shipping requirements, but to also suit the need. PAC NEXT is working for our members to lead the collaboration with groups such as the National Zero Waste Council (NZWC) and the Circular Economy Innovation Lab (CEIL) help to mobilize packaging optimization solutions that move toward a circular economy.

FOOD WASTE PAC FOOD WASTE packaging solutions reduce food waste. It is no surprise that packaging helps to reduce food waste since the purpose of packaging is primarily to protect the product from damage and the consumer from tampering and mishandling. Given the rising global pressures to reduce food waste, it provides a unique opportunity to promote packaging solutions where small packaging adjustments can help to maintain freshness, extend shelf life and prevent spoilage. Highlighting smart food packaging technologies such as modified atmosphere, anti-microbial and aseptic packaging through case studies is just one example of how PAC FOOD WASTE is leading the packaging industry to address food waste and we will continue to play a key role in this global issue.

SMART PACKAGING

intelliPACK accelerates SMART PACKAGING innovation. Smart packaging applications will play a key role in how packaging evolves in the near future. With increasing awareness on social and environmental issues, intelligent and active packaging technology has the capability to provide real-time information to meet consumer demands for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Smart labels are developing to help consumers find information on how to better store food and how to recycle. intelliPACK is leading the exploration of opportunities to make packaging more meaningful beyond its traditional functions and to increase its value to consumers. Real connections. Real collaboration. At PAC, we do not simply share news of emerging trends, but also offer educational tools and resources that enable business agility. Market economics, consumer trends, changing health and safety regulations, new waste diversion policy and developing technologies are key drivers that affect the packaging industry. With busy schedules and limited resources it is often difficult to filter through all the news and activity that directly impact your business. This is why PAC is your one-stop shop to all packaging related matters, working to drive momentum to take the packaging industry to new levels.

Venerable Canadian coffee and tea processor deploys leading packaging automation technologies to sustain rapid growth in the single-serve capsule segment

The relatively new Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee production facility in Mississauga, Ont., produces millions of single-serve coffee capsules per year under its own brand labels (above) and as private-label products for retail, foodservice and institutional customers across North America, with major emphasis on improving the recyclability of the plastic capsules.

or all their significant differences in origin, preparation, taste and perceived health benefits, coffee and tea are forever twinned in the larger context of being the world’s two most popular and most widely consumed hot beverages. And for companies like the Mississauga, Ont.-headquartered Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee Inc., being able to offer North American consumers both options, at the same high level of product quality and taste, is a win-win proposition any way you look at it. Founded in 1912, the family-owned company is anything but a newcomer to the global coffee and tea business, nowadays sourcing its raw coffee beans and tea leaves from over 30 countries around the globe for its own brands and an ever-growing range of private-label products for both retail and foodservice channels. But for a company with more than a century of proud history of continual growth behind it, its openness to trying new ideas and new ways of doing things is the

proverbial breath of fresh air in an industry placing a big premium on familiarity and tradition. Always striving to stay ahead of the curve and competition through relentless product innovation, Mother Parkers was not only one of the first tea and coffee processors to fuel the meteoric rise in the popularity of single-serve coffee and tea pods (aka capsules) a few years ago, but also one of the first to respond in a meaningful way to a heavy barrage of public condemnation aimed at the new format’s environmental shortcomings—primarily related to its lack of recyclability. Rather than simply brush off the criticism as a fair trade-off for delivering the single-serve convenience that consumers themselves were demanding from the industry, the company embarked on a far-reaching quest to produce a more environmentally-friendly single-serve coffee capsule to bridge the gap between growing consumer demand and the heavy burden of

alleged ecological insensitivity. With the company’s 320,00-squarefoot Mississauga plant currently producing millions of single-serve coffee capsules per year, the stakes could hardly be higher for the storied firm owned by Paul Jr. and Michael Higgins, third-generation siblings of the founding Higgins family. “There is definitely a major focus in the industry to develop a more sustainable solution for single-serve coffee,” says Mother Parkers special projects engineer James Zaebst. Originally used exclusively for looseleaf tea when launched in 2014, the company’s EcoCup capsules have since been adopted for use across all of its flagship coffee brands, including Mother Parkers, Brown Gold, Martinson and Marley Coffee. Utilizing patented ‘click-and-peel’ technology to separate the capsule’s brewed contents from the recyclingready clear-plastic shell and lidding has enabled EcoCup capsules to be accepted into many more municipal recycling streams than single-serve pods used by many competing coffee products, according to Paul Yang, packaging development group leader

for Mother Parkers. “In the past we used several different colors for the capsules in order to differentiate the brands from one another,” he says, “but we found that transitioning to one single [clear] color makes them more acceptable for recycling in more municipalities. “The plastic material we use is recyclable, and we believe that our clickand-peel content removal technology is highly effective in removing the compostable organic waste from the cup to provide a clean, pure material to the recycling stream. “Our team works very closely with municipalities and many of them are impressed by the progress we have made.” Indeed, continuous progress is a daily modus operandi for the busy Mississauga capsule plant, which runs on a threeshift, around-the-clock schedule five days a week, employing about 135 production staff to manufacture over 300 different SKUs (stock-keeping units), including its own brands and many leading private-label brands for major retail and foodservice customers. While the plant’s product portfolio includes hotel pods and fractional packs, the bulk of its business is

nowadays focused on EcoCup capsules, which are multipacked in preprinted folding cartons containing 12, 16, 18, 24, 36, 48 and 72 capsules per box. “Our production volumes and capacity have grown continuously with growth of the single-serve format and the rising popularity of our more environmentally-friendly capsule format,” says Mother Parkers vice-president of operations Joe Navin, who is also responsible for overseeing daily production at the company’s other three plants in Mississauga (coffee roasting/ grinding), Ajax, Ont. (tea processing);

and Fort Worth, Tex., which produces both tea and coffee products primarily for the U.S. markets. “There is definitely a different tea and coffee culture in North America, depending on where you go,” Navin relates. “In southern U.S., for example, the vast majority of tea is consumed as iced-tea beverages, whereas in Canada and northeastern U.S. it is mostly served as a traditional hot drink.” Being able to process both coffee and tea capsules provides the highly-automated capsule plant with enhanced economic efficiencies and flexibility to

COVER STORY ensure quick response to market needs, Navin and Zaebst concur. Says Navin: “There have been continuous major investments carried out in the facility over the last four years, including processing, transfer systems and capsule manufacturing systems, that have enabled Mother Parkers to produce millions of RealCup and EcoCup capsules annually.” One of the plant’s more recent capital upgrades involved the installation of a highly flexible conveyor system for transporting the filled single-serve cups from the capsule filler to the box-erecting machine to box the product. Manufactured by FlexLink Systems Canada, Inc. in Burlington, Ont., the FlexLink Alpine System is a highly modular, aluminum chain conveyor that capably met the plant’s specific requirements for modularity and flexibility, compact footprint, and extended accumulation capabilities. Installed as a continuous spiral overhead conveyor consisting of six circular tracks stacked on top of one another, with a few inches of space gaps between the six layers, the two-inch-wide conveyor is partially hung from ceiling and partially floor-supported with customized floor and mezzanine mounts to maintain its stable position in mid-air at all times. “The FlexLink conveyor systems that were installed at the capsule plant to convey the finished capsules from our packaging machines to our nested carton and bulk-off equipment handle the product in a very gentle and efficient manner,” says Zaebst, who designed the conveyor’s aerial layout and configuration with the aim of optimizing all available floorspace. “It is a very flexible system that allows us to run product from point A to point B by snaking it around other equipment on the packaging line without any interferences,” says Zaebst, adding the system’s foodgrade nylon and UHMW (ultra-high-molecular polyethylene) plastic belting ensures good stability for the lightweight capsules through their transfer from the filler all the way to the case-packing station. “It provides a good grip so that there is very minimal slippage during the process,” he says. “The system is highly automated, so that if there is a problem with any of the capsules, it will automatically direct the other capsules into the accumulation buffer zone, thereby ensuring uninterrupted production while we address the problem.” Synchronized with a fully-automatic Lantech model C-1000 case-erector, supplied by Veritiv, the FlexLink conveyor system enables the plant to maintain a brisk line speed of up to 22 cases per minute on this line, depending on carton size and the number of capsules per pack. “Having worked with FlexLink conveyor systems many times well before this installation, I was quite confident that they would deliver us a robust, highly automated solution that would help us drive down our cost-per-cup, which it certainly has,” Navin states. “Still, it was very impressive to see them meet all our layout requirements and conserve plant real estate at the same time,” he points out. “The engineering and installation teams at FlexLink can turn out a complete conveyor regime in less than three weeks, which is remarkably fast compared to other competitive vendors,” he reflects. Adds FlexLink Systems Canada general manager Jeff Jones: “It is a pleasure for FlexLink Canada to partner with Mother Parkers, as it brings two industry leaders together to create manufacturing solutions that fit with the core competencies of each organization.

Mother Parkers vice-president of operations Joe Navin oversees production at all four of the company’s North American plants.

Packaging development group leader Paul Yang has headed the EcoCup product development efforts since its initial 2014 launch.

Says Leung: “From inception, Mother Parkers’ capsule plant has built a culture of employee engagement that has made a significant impact on the facility’s rapid expansion and success. “All our employees are involved in decision-making and are empowered to identify opportunities and propose improvements in a continuous improvement environment,” Leung relates. “We also deploy small groups of production employees to form continuous improvement teams to address specific areas of improvement, such as changeover times and processes, preventive maintenance, production and shift scheduling.” In a similar vein, Leung expects the company’s employees to play a critical role in further refinement of the EcoCup capsules. “We’ve had a very positive response from the market,” he states. “Since its launch in 2014, the EcoCup capsule format has been embraced by many iconic brands across Canada and the U.S., growing this part of our business to over a billion capsules annually.” Adds Yang: “We strived to redefine the single-serve experience with the EcoCup capsule format. “We married careful material choices with smart packaging design to come up with a solution that would be easy for our customers to adopt,” he explains. “Technology has allowed us to add more features and functionality to the EcoCup capsule without adding more cost. “Our research has shown that

consumers are willing and able to participate in making a difference by separating and recycling single-serve coffee capsules,” Yang states, “and we’ll continue to work diligently with the many actors in the post-consumer supply chain to improve our product’s environmental performance. “Packaging innovation is definitely a big part of the marketing strategy for the company as a whole. “We want to continue to create relevant products that meet the evolving needs of consumers,” Yang concludes, “and we see technology play a large role in shaping the future of packaging. “Our in-house packaging innovation team has a unique combination of marketing and consumer insight experience, combined with some highly technical engineering skills, to help affect consumer behavior in positive incremental ways to the benefit of our industry and the environment.” Please see an online video of the FlexLink conveyor at Mother Parkers on Canadian Packaging TV at www.canadianpackaging.com

t seems fair to say that when it comes to achieving success in the dog-eat-dog business world, there’s no such thing as having too much help from your trusted partners to put you on a firm path to accomplishing your goals and objectives. Like its name suggests, the privately-owned Kitchen Partners Limited is all about meaningful and successful partnerships. Based in Edmonton, the company specializes in preparing, cooking, chilling, packaging and shipping a wide assortment of liquid foods and sauces to restaurants and retail stores across Canada from Victoria, B.C., to St. John’s, Nfld., with the ability to go south of the border when its customers require it. “As cliché as some might think it sounds, we believe our customers deserve a partner, not a supplier, and we know that our reputation hinges on the customer’s reputation for providing high-quality, delicious food,” Kitchen Partners vice-president of operations James Maitland told Canadian Packaging

in a recent interview. The company got its start in the mid-1980s in Edmonton when, as a small commissary, it supported some local restaurants by preparing food for them. “But, with new ownership in 2004 and a new management team in 2005, Kitchen Partners quickly changed its focus because we knew it could become something more,” says Maitland, with a tip of the hat to company president Jeff Clark. “We have experienced exceptional growth since then,” he notes, “and we continue to add new customers and new products every year.” According to Maitland, anything that can be made in a pot on a stove, or served in a bowl at home or in the back of a restaurant kitchen, falls into the Kitchen Partners area of expertise. “We produce a wide range of products from salad dressings to soups to pasta sauces,” advice Maitland. “We are also licensed for processing seafood as well, and we make some fantastic clam chowders for a few of our customers.” With a total of 68 employees, Kitchen Partners operates a 27,000-square-foot facility that houses 5,000 square feet of office space, 13,000 square feet

for warehousing and cooling, and 9,000 square feet for manufacturing operations. “We used to have two facilities, but through efficiency gains and lean manufacturing, we were able to consolidate them into one CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) federally-inspected, USDA (United States Department of Agriculture)-eligible, GFTC (Guelph Food Technology Centre)-certified building,” Maitland relates. The company’s main customer segment are the multi-unit foodservice operators and the retail deli/ HMR (home meal replacement) service providers, with restaurants making up the largest portion of Kitchen Partners’ business. While it also produces some industrial support marinades and sauces for other producers, Maitland says that its multi-unit foodservice operators represent over 80 percent of its business, with HMR and institution business accounting for the rest. With over 100 SKU (stock-keeping units), the company focuses primarily on stirred foods with soups and sauces representing approximately 70 per cent of its output, and the remaining 30 per cent taken up with the production of dips and dressings.

Customers can either provide Kitchen Partners with their own recipes to follow, says Maitland, or they can have the company create them on their behalf. “Our business is all about the innovation and the ease-of-use that we can bring to the customer,” relates Maitland. “That often means that we need to take their ideas and commercialize them. “Sometimes that means having our team work with their recipes, or us creating them from scratch. “We have a fantastic product development team at Kitchen Partners that is very creative, with a wide range of capabilities,” he says. “We also hold regular innovation sessions with our customers and their teams, so that we can continue to tailor our business to their business. “It’s really all about customization here,” says Maitland, describing the two processes employed at the facility: RTE (ready-to-eat) and Cold, whereby it takes meat from a raw state and cooks it so it is RTE. The company runs five-days-a-week, 24-hours-aday, and tends to have a busier time of year falling between September and December. “We do have the ability to run overtime shifts, if the project warrants it,” says Maitland, “but for the most part, we have the capacity to scale up our production with the same number of people on the lines.” Kitchen Partners purchases all of its own ingredients and works with its customers to customize products that meet their needs, according to Maitland.With no brands of its own, Kitchen Partners makes everything proprietary for each specific customer, if required. “We try to purchase as close to the source as possible,” Maitland reveals. “For example, we buy onions directly from the growers, which are then peeled, cleaned and processed to the exact specification we require. “We only use fresh ingredients, as we believe that it makes such a major difference in the quality of our products, that you can taste it in the product. “By buying as close to the source as possible, we eliminate any extra required processing steps, which ultimately leads to a superior product and allows us to customize our products easily to satisfy the enduser’s needs.” The Kitchen Partners plant operates two basic processing lines: the vegetable preparation manual trimming and prepping line, combined with a highly

FOOD SAFETY automatic cleaning step line that feeds the second line—the stirred foods operation. “The vegetable prep line is manual at the beginning, handling all the different types of inputs from celery and cauliflower to onions and bell peppers,” Maitland explains. “Peppers need coring, the onions need to be topped, tailed and peeled, the cauliflower requires destemming, and the celery requires separation—all very different processes.” Kitchen Partners has opted to automate its critical control points and key process controls, while keeping other processes manual.According to Maitland, this solution The robust and accurate Liquiflex filling and bagging system manuprovides a high degree of production factured by Bemis Company saves Kitchen Partners time and costs. flexibility for the plant. “We chose to maintain our manual batching process to provide quality inspection of ingredients and for customization purposes,” relates Maitland. “But for our cooking and chilling operations, we needed to be highly automated to ensure that each step is controlled, and be able to repeat each step precisely to ensure a consistent end product, which can be matched from batch to batch. “We also prefer to use a manual casepacking method to ensure that every packed product placed into a master case enters in perfect condition,” Maitland confides. In layman’s terms, Kitchen Partners operation comprises processing of fresh vegetables, scaling of all ingredients, building of emulsions in its batching area, and then adding all the ingredients into its large-scale kettles to cook according to the customer’s recipe. After the product is prepared, it undergoes a quality check before being released for packaging. “Once filled, the product passes through an X-Ray system placed a few feet away, with the two machines communicating with each other to ensure the proper fill level is consistent,” says Maitland. “After the X-Ray inspection, the product is conveyed to pass through our chilling system to cool down to the desired temperature, before being released for boxing and, eventually moved to our finished goods storage area.” To ensure optimal quality control, Kitchen Partners purchased an Eagle PACK 320 PRO X-Ray system last April 2016. Manufactured by Eagle Product Inspection of Tampa, Fla., the system is distributed in Canada by the Orangeville, Ont.-headquartered automated packaging systems integrator PLAN Automation, whose X-Ray technical center and warehouse is located in Richmond Hill, Ont. “We were using a metal detection unit previously,” Maitland recalls, “but we were afforded an opportunity to change to a supplier we could partner with long-term in order to further our own goal of making quality and food safety a competitive advantage.” Maitland says that because his company

uses so many vegetables as part of the product make-up, that stones are inevitably a key area of concern. Maitland says the same holds true with protein sauce creation, but with the possibility of bone fragments posing the biggest risk. According to Maitland, the combination of checkweighing and improved food safety justified X-Ray as a solution for improving Kitchen Partners’ overall food safety program and reducing the risk to its customers and consumers. “It has also allowed us to be more consistent on our yields, by having the checkweigher communicate directly to the packing machine and auto adjusting the fill weights,” he notes. “We now have a very small range of variability for each and every package for fill weights.” The Eagle PACK 320 PRO X-Ray system provides 100-percent product inspection of foreign contaminants, including metal, stone, glass, dense plastics and calcified bone. As Maitland stresses, the system can checkweigh, measure fill-level and verify component presence or absence, and is capable of multi-lane capable operation. According to Mat Bedard of PLAN Automation, the Eagle PACK 320 Pro X-Ray system is designed to

22 • WWW.CANADIANPACKAGING.COM

CPK_JAN_FEB_KAM.indd 22

provide inspection of high-speed flowwrap lines and small- to midsized packaged items. Providing 320-mm (12.5 inch) of detection coverage at the belt, the PACK 320 PRO can perform highspeed imaging at a rate of 120 meters per minute (400 feet per minute) with multiple inspection capabilities. “All of the Eagle systems are network-capable, which allows users to have remote access to the equipment by Eagle expert technicians, like ourselves, who can provide fast diagnostic relief and hopefully correct any issues without having to send a technician for on-site service,” explains Bedard. “It’s a great way to quickly get production lines working efficiently.” Adds Maitland: “Kitchen Partners had never had direct experience with X-Ray systems before and had little knowledge of the capabilities that were available to us. “The PLAN Automation team took the time to educate, share and train our team on all of the options that have allowed us to drastically improve our business and reliability to our customers and their end-users,” he continues. Having used Eagle equipment at other companies he has worked at in the past, Maitland notes that its capabilities, service and price were

second to none. “I based my final decisions around three factors: the company and their values, service and price, says Maitland, adding that Kitchen Partners genuinely believes in the value of partnerships. “Both Eagle Product Inspection and PLAN Automation have demonstrated to me over my career in the industry that they have what it takes to create a dynamic partnership, which made the purchasing decision a lot easier for us,” relates Maitland. With regards to PLAN Automation’s technical expertise, Maitland has nothing but high praise. “JP Perreault and PLAN Automation have always done great work in many of the plants I had the pleasure of leading,” he says. “Their service and values are superb, which really defines how their technicians conduct themselves in aligning with our personnel here at Kitchen Partners. “Having PLAN Automation as a partner was an easy decision.” Maitland says that the Eagle PACK 320 Pro X-Ray system has been doing yeomen’s work for Kitchen Partners, allowing the plant to not only improve the bag weight consistency, but also to work with its own suppliers to improve their food safety programs. “Since the Eagle PACK 320 Pro X-Ray system was installed over the second weekend of July 2016, we have been able to provide feedback to our suppliers around how their detection systems are working,” Maitland reveals. “Not allowing any bone fragments or stones to be included into our food products for consumers to find has made our entire supply chain more efficient and safe.” Even before the X-Ray system was installed, Maitland recalls how Bedard invited him to visit PLAN Automation’s X-Ray center to see and test a wide range of Kitchen Partners’ products first-hand. “Matt Bedard did a fantastic job in fitting us with a solution for our process, including adding a rejection system,” says Maitland, adding the company was kept in the loop throughout the entire process, and that when technician Josh Milne arrived to install and teach Kitchen Partners’ staff how to use the equipment, they already felt he was part of the family. “Josh really fit in with our culture and values,” explains Maitland. “It felt like he had worked with our entire team for years. “He had the set-up done quickly and effectively, and worked with our entire team to ensure everyone had the proper training we needed to ensure safe and effective operation of the X-Ray system.

“For me, all of the interactions were a true reflection of PLAN Automation’s leadership, and I am proud to have them as partners of Kitchen Partners.” Maitland says that the foodservice industry is both very exciting and competitive, adding that Kitchen Partners has found its niche and has continued to grow it over the years. “Whether it’s with new products offered to existing customers or simply attracting new customers, we have discovered, and will continue to discover, new business opportunities for Kitchen Partners,” Maitland opines. He points out that recent trends of cleaner ingredient declarations, and full customization options are “trends we are seeing and are able to take full advantage of.” On top of all that, it is the quality of the food they produce, and the safety aspects they can offer their customer’s consumers that set Kitchen Partner’s apart. Kitchen Partners follows OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) standards, with Maitland proudly citing his company’s record 1,162 consecutive days of no time lost due to worker accidents, at the time of this writing. Along with a comprehensive quality and food safety scorecard in which Kitchen Partners measures a wide range of criteria, Maitland points to the plant running on “an OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) metric to calculate efficiency yields and utilization over a five-day, 24hour schedule, with us running at an average of 79 per cent right now. “As for fill-rate, if we drop below 99.7 per cent, then there is a serious problem,” Maitland acknowledges. “So we decided that scheduling conformance was a better metric, where we target 97 per cent of plan.” Summing up, Maitland says he is optimistic about his company’s continued growth and ability to produce high-quality, safe food for its customers. “Having a great partner like PLAN Automation has certainly been a great way for Kitchen Partners to improve our efficiency,” Maitland concludes. “And we are glad to have them with us as we continue to take things to next level in the foodservice industry.”

f you were to travel to Cabot, Vermont, by car, you could almost experience what it’s like to miss a place just because you blinked. Located in an area of 2.8 square kilometers, the tiny community only had a total of 233 people making their home there, according to the 2010 United States Census. But whatever Cabot lacks in size, it more than makes up for it in cheese. Operating as part of the Andover, Ma.-headquartered Agri-Mark Dairy Cooperative, the Cabot Creamery Co-Operative Inc. is part of a prospering network of three cheese processing plants operated by

Agri-Mark in northeastern U.S. This includes a cheese processing plant in Chateaugay, N.Y., producing cheddar and muenster cheeses; and West Springfield, Ma., where it makes butter and skim milk powder; a plant in Middlebury,Vt., where cheddar and whey protein powder is made; and Cabot, where it creates its award-winning cheddar cheese and other cultured products. Best known for its award-winning Cabot brand of cheddar cheese and other dairy products, Cabot Creamery is a classic agricultural dairy co-operative business jointly owned by 1,100 farm families spread across the New

York state and New England. The company was founded in 1919 as the Cabot Creamery Co-operative by 94 local farming families who invested US$3,700 in the original manufacturing plant using a wood-fired boiler. At that time, dairy farmers produced much more milk than they could sell, so the Cabot farmers churned their excess milk into butter—selling their Rosedale brand all over the New England area. As more and more of the population moved away from rural communities to urban confines during the 1920s, the co-operative started to expand its business by shipping some of its milk and butter output south. By 1930, when Vermont’s human population was actually outnumbered by cows (358,000 people to 421,000 cows), the co-op added cheddar cheese to its production mix. While Cabot cooperative membership was 600 farms in 1960, the total number of farms across Vermont and the rest of the U.S. begun to shrink. By 1964 there were 9,000 farms in Vermont, and 6,000 in 1967. By the 1980s, there were fewer than 2,000 farms in Vermont, less than one-fifth of the total a mere 10 years earlier. It wasn’t all doom and gloom for Cabot Creamery Cooperative. In 1989, the co-op won the first prize at the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest in Green Bay, Wis., starting a remarkable winning streak that continues to this day To date, the company has garnered nearly 140 major national and international awards, including first place for its cheddar in the 1998 World Championship Cheese Contest. The turn of the century saw the company undertake a series of strategic mpves, including: • In 2000, Agri-Mark constructed a US$20-million state-of-the-art whey protein processing facility in Middlebury—the only one of its kind in the U.S. at the time; • In 2003 Agri-Mark merged with Chateaugay Cooperative of Chateaugay, NY; • Also in 2003, Cabot purchased the MacAdam cheese

brand and a plant from Valio of Finland; • 2006, Agri-Mark joined with the Allied Federation of Cooperatives, adding new members to supply the Chateaugay facility; • In 2009, larger cheddar vats were installed in Middlebury; • In 2010, increasing sales prompted the opening of a new 10,400-square-foot warehouse in Middlebury. “Cabot Creamery Co-operatives still holds onto generations of family traditions, while looking forward in the adoption of best practices to ensure we look after the land, improve animal care, provide a stable business for our member farming families

and, of course, make sure we consistently produce high-quality dairy products,” Cabot Creamery cut and wrap production manager Cristin O’Donnell told Canadian Packaging magazine in a recent interview. She continues: “We look at the cooperative as us supporting our community, and our community supporting us,” O’Donnell states. There are close to 200 full-time employees at the 119,000-square-foot cut-and-wrap facility in Cabot, with an additional 100 employees who work at the manufacturing plant making cheddar cheese and cultured products. “As the facility name suggests, we cut and wrap aged, flavored and light cheddar, Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, Muenster, and Horseradish cheeses—all made with local fresh cow’s milk,” O’Donnell relates. The Vermont facility primarily produces the Coop’s two flagship brands—Cabot and McAdam— but O’Donnell points out that it also makes dairy products for other company brands as well. “We produce about 200 SKUs (stock-keeping units) at our cut-and-wrap plant,” notes O’Donnell. “And while our exact numbers are proprietary, the Cabot plant alone handles close to a million pounds of milk a day. “And while all of that milk is used for a variety of dairy products, I can tell you that our cheddar production tops 70 million pounds per year,” O’Donnell reveals, adding that Cabot dairy products can be found on the east coast of the U.S. from Maine south to Florida. “While our distribution is mostly concentrated along the eastern seaboard of the U.S., our products can be purchased nationally via major stores,” says O’Donnell, citing the likes of Costco, Walmart and Whole Foods Market. “Across the U.S. grocery segment, our Cabot brand is Number Three in terms of sales of Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Muenster cheeses, behind Kraft and Tillamook,” she notes. “So we’re doing well.” She adds that while most of Cabot’s dairy products

are sold through the standard grocery channel, the company does have an active foodservice division that works directly with individual restaurants and restaurant chains. In the larger dairy industry beyond the cheddar category O’Donnell says that Cabot Creamery is ranked the Number 46 in sales. “Our market share varies from region to region,” points out O’Donnell.“In top markets like Vermont or Boston, we have a 20-percent share of all cheeses sold. In our growing markets, that number can be anywhere from five to 10 per cent. Knowing the industry is key for any business, O’Donnell notes, monitoring how the rise in popularity of yogurt in recent years has caused a corresponding rise in competitive yogurt brands on the market available to consumers. Not wanting to compete against the industry heavyweights, Cabot stayed away from the single-serve market and instead only offers its GreekYogurt in the two-pound size. But when it comes to cheeses, Cabot doesn’t shy away from anyone. “In the cheese category, Kraft and Sargento are the big players,” O’Donnell acknowledges. “While the competition is strong, we just focus on our own product quality and hope that the end consumer can taste the difference.” The quality exacted into its cheese and dairy products is extended towards its food safety initiatives, with Cabot Creamery achieving its SQF Level 3 certification, the highest level of food safety standards of certification offered by the Safe Quality Food Institute, denoting a comprehensive implementation of safety and quality management systems. As O’Donnell relates, the co-op’s mission focuses around producing high-quality products and customer service, while ensuring worker safety and sustainability matters within the cooperative as a whole. “We have specific teams and programs to continually evolve and improve in both safety and sustainability areas,” she states.

To meet current and future customer needs for Cabot Creamery, Delkor provided the co-operative with a new case-packing system featuring its Trayfecta S-series, robotic C-series loading system, and its Capstone F-series 550 closer, capable of running at a speed of up to 200 units per minute.

At the collation area of the Delkor C-series 2C 1200 robotic loader, the EOAT (end-of-arm tool) gently picks flowwrapped packs of cheese and places them within the corrugated Cabrio Cases in preparation for transportation to customers.

O’Donnell notes the Cabot Creamery Co-Operative is the first dairy co-operative in the world to be BCorp-certified, a third-party private certification issued to for-profit businesses with offices in the U.S., Canada, Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand, awarded for high social sustainability and environmental performance standards. The cut-and-wrap facility in Cabot runs two shifts of production and one shift of sanitation operating 24-hours-a-day and five-days-a-week, while the cheese production areas run non-stop seven-days-a-week. O’Donnell relates that the second half of the year

is typically the co-op’s busiest time, saying it manages the increased workflow thanks to a combination of planning and a flexible workforce set-up to adjust to the seasonal variations. Featuring 11 production lines, the cut-and-wrap facility packs dairy product ranging in size from four ounces up to 38 pounds in various substrates, such as film, bags and wax. “Different lines are set up with different amounts of automation,” explains O’Donnell. “While we still perform more manual production on lower volume and specialty lines, our highest volume lines have the most automation.”

Cheeses are brought in to the facility from company warehouses after it has been aged anywhere from six months to three years. Arriving in bulk as 40-pound “blocks” or the appropriately named 640-pound “giant blocks,” depending on what was selected by the Cabot cheese graders to be packed as a specific product, these cheese blocks are then cut to size, as chunks or slices. “The sizing is dependent on the specifics of each customer in the retail or Club Store or foodservice market segments, and what sizes each prefers,” notes O’Donnell, adding that these cheese products are packed using either Hayssen or Multivac plastic films, Sealed Air Cryovac plastic bags, or wax, depending on customer requirements. “Again, based on the line, we have case-packers and palletizers, but we also have lines where we hand-pack the cheese into cases and palletize those cases by hand,” O’Donnell relates. “We transport the finished pallets to our distribution center located just down the road in Montpelier.” For one of those production lines, in November of 2016 Cabot purchased three pieces of equipment from the St. Paul, Minn.-headquartered Delkor Systems Inc. for a new Delkor C Series robotic loading case-packing workcell, featuring: • Trayfecta S-series TF-S4 1501 XL former; • C-series robotic loader featuring a Fanuc M-710iC/50H robot; • Capstone F-series 550 closer. Already having enjoyed a positive experience owning and operating

a case-packing system from Delkor, O’Donnell says it was a no-brainer to purchase the second one when the time was right. “It wasn’t just the performance of the original casepacker, which was superb,” she notes, “but it was also the high level of friendly, knowledgeable and timely servicer and support that Delkor provided us. “We thought was a very important factor in expanding our relationship.” Delkor Systems sales manager Scott Shepard says that the Cabot facility has been a Delkor customer for over 20 years, installing their first Spot-Pak line in 1996 to pack tapered cups of cultured dairy products at a rate of 180 containers per minute. A second, higher-speed Spot-Pak line was installed in 2012 for the same products to keep up with Cabot’s growing production demands. These Delkor machines were designed specifically to handle product in tapered cups, an area Delkor has specialized in since its beginnings. According to Shepard, Delkor has a large footprint within the cultured dairy industry, with thousands of machines installed throughout North America. Says Shepard: “The two Spot-Pak systems pack Cabot’s rigid containers into Spot-Pak packages, Delkor’s patented low-cost pad-shrink shippers. “The systems have allowed Cabot to enjoy savings on their packaging lines for several years,” continues Shepard, “as Spot-Pak packaging typically costs about half that of a typical corrugated shipping case.” As for the new robotic case-loader, O’Donnell says it wasn’t about saving money on packaging as much as it was about looking to the future. Needing to replace an existing casepacker manufactured by another equipment builder after it had reached the end of its expected life, O’Donnell says Cabot had also “seen an increase in the number of customers requesting shelf-ready display cases from us.” Delkor’s solution could not only provide a case-packer that could meet the current needs of Cabot’s shipping boxes, but it could also offer them a leading retail-ready package (RRP) in the Cabrio Case to meet current and future customer needs. “We can run the Delkor C Series robotic case-packing line at speeds up to 200 units per minute handling sixto 32-ounce blocks of flowwrapped cheese,” relates O’Donnell. The robotic case-packer’s Trayfecta S-Series former is, according to Shepard, “Capable of forming economical harness wrap shipping cases, as well as our popular Cabrio Case retail-ready package.”

AUTOMATE NOW He says that in late 2016, Delkor’s Cabrio Case was called out by name in Walmart’s Retail Ready Packaging guide as one of the retail giant’s preferred formats. “This flexibility to switch from an economical shipper case to an award-winning retail-ready package, and vice versa, enables manufacturers to better future-proof their operation,” continues Shepard. “The machinery solution we supplied Cabot offers similar benefits in terms of flexibility, and simple, tooless changeover that takes just minutes to implement.” This Delkor system uses a Fanuc-based robotic case-packer, featuring a M-710-iC/50H five-axis robot arm with a payload capacity of 50-kilograms and a reach of 2,000-mm. “The Fanuc M-710-iC/50H is a medium-payload robot that is designed to perform high-speed product transfers with a wide range of motion,” says Shepard. “In this case, it enables Cabot to pack into more shallow shipping cases, as well as the deeper Cabrio Case RRP without ever dropping the product.” Adds Shepard: “With the collation-style robotic loader we chose for Cabot’s application, up to 12 blocks of cheese are loaded per transfer to achieve the desired rates. “Because Cabot runs several differentsize blocks and needs to be prepared for future RRP requirements, we designed a highly-flexible end-of-arm tool (EOAT) for the robot. “This EOAT allows for a wide range of pack patterns and configurations, including the option to load cheese for horizontal or vertical presentation on the shelf.” As a certified Level 4 Fanuc Integrator— the highest possible level—Shepard says Delkor offers a wealth of experience and support that Cabot will be able to rely on. “The simplicity of the modular approach to the system, with separate forming, loading and closing operations, allows the system to be configured to fit into a variety of layouts,” says Shepard, “including the relatively tight area Cabot had available in the facility.” O’Donnell says that when it came time to purchase the new case-packer, it was very important that it be able to run the exact same corrugated blanks it was running on its existing wraparound machines. “We consider the case blank we use to be highly efficient,” mentions O’Donnell, “when compared to a traditional RSCs (regular slotted cases). “As well, the fact that the Delkor system can allow us to change over from one format to the next in time measured in minutes, was a key deciding factor as well.” Despite the majority of its business revolving around cheese, there’s nothing cheesy about the Cabot cut-andwrap facility in Vermont. “Despite the grassroots basics of the

dairy industry, Cabot is run as a modern business, but it also mirrors the values of the farmers who own the business,” says O’Donnell. “We are a company that cares greatly for people, natural resources, and returning profit to our member farms,” she states. “And nowadays, we see consumers shifting their purchasing habits from simple ‘item quality’ to ‘company quality,’ which means they want to know if they can stand behind the company and the company’s practices,” O’Donnell concludes. “When it comes to Cabot Creamery, we find that more and more consumers are choosing our products, and we are striving to ensure that continues well into the future.”

SHOW OF STRENGTH

The world’s biggest packaging exhibition gets set to dazzle the global audience with comprehensive technolgies showcase and busy conference agenda

W

hen it comes to putting on a show, the German city of Düsseldorf is in a league of its own, big time! As a host to more than 40 major global trade shows, including 23 leading events in their respective sectors, the country’s seventh-largest city has few equals as a regular global meeting place for some of the world’s most important industries—with packaging no exception. Held every three years, the 59-year-old interpack trade fair is the proverbial Mother of all trade shows in the global packaging business by any objective measure—from the staggering numbers of visitors and exhibitors to the comprehensive scope of leading packaging technologies, materials and services displayed during the week-long extravaganza. Running this year May 4-10, 2017, at the vast Messe Düsseldorf fairgrounds complex near the city’s international airport, interpack 2017 already seems well-poised to smash all previous attendance records, according to the show’s organizers Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, which cites unprecedented levels of interest in all parts of the world. According to Messe Düsseldorf, “Interpack 2017 has already recorded the largest exhibitor demand in the show’s history. “By the official registration deadline end of February 2016 for the world’s most important trade fair for the packaging sector and related processing industries, companies had booked about 20 more space than is available in the 19 halls of the Düsseldorf exhibition center. “In terms of its scope and international mix, interpack offers an unparalleled platform for companies with products and solutions from all sectors of packaging technology, related processes and packaging materials for the key food-and-beverage, confectionery and bakery products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food consumer goods and industrial goods segments.” Representing all facets of the packaging supply chain, the last interpack 2014 show drew 174,798 visitors—with 106,463 from outside of Germany—and 2,670 exhibitors, and Messe Düsseldorf is erecting an additional temporary exhibit hall this time around to house packaging machinery components suppliers. This surge in interest accurately ref lects the strengthening packaging industry renaissance worldwide—driven by key new market trends and mandates for packaging producers and users across the globe. According to leading market research firm Smithers Pira, the global packaging market is currently growing at an annual rate of 3.5 per cent—putting it on track to surpass the coveted US$1-trillion threshold by 2020.

PRE-SHOW REPORT

Another market research firm, Euromonitor, estimates that there were more than four trillion packages sold worldwide in 2015, with plastic packaging accounting for half of that total. “The largest share of this, almost 60 per cent, goes to f lexible plastic packaging,” Euromonitor states, “and the figure is rising. “More and more products are packed in f lexible packaging of all kinds, such as bags, stand-up pouches, films, etc., to meet growing demand from the food industry,” says Euromonitor, singling out stand-up pouches as the fastest-growing segment within f lexible packaging. “Convenience is the keyword here: The packaging should be light, easy to open and close, and the product should be easy to portion,” Euromonitor states. “Stand-up pouches do not weigh

much, which means that the use of resources on the one hand, and the transport costs of the goods on the other, are decreasing,” according to Euromonitor. “In addition, for products that need to be sterilized, stand-up pouches need a lower heating time, since the temperatures necessary for sterilization can be reached faster than in larger-sized cans, cardboard boxes or bags made of aluminum.” Despite the outstanding growth for f lexible and rigid plastic packaging— with beverage industry continuing to fuel strong demand growth for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) containers—suppliers of all core packaging materials can expect good growth prospect in coming years, according to Euromonitor. • Carton Packaging. With 620 million paperboard packages sold in 2015,

the “highly competitive market” is expected the grow by six per cent overall by 2019—driven by soaring e-commerce sales and robust demand for more retail-ready packaging from traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. • Metal Packaging. With 2015 sales of 420 million units, the third-largest packaging segment will grow by 12 per cent by 2019, as cans continue to make inroads into the global markets for beer, energy drinks and other socalled “functional beverages.” • Glass Packaging. Remaining the packaging of choice for premium range products— especially in markets for upscale beer, spirits and wine—demand for glass is also expected to rise by seven per cent by 2019, according to Euromonitor, reaching an estimated 338 million units.

According to Euromonitor, “Growth keeps happening in the packaging market for two reasons: the increasing urbanization and the continuing trend towards more convenience foods. “Worldwide more and more people live in cities, and providing them with sound high-quality food and other essential goods on a daily basis poses enormous logistical challenges. “Hence, packaging is the key to transport food and goods undamaged and unspoiled to the customers,” says Euromonitor. “Rising consumption due to growing middle classes in developing and emerging countries, along with growing competition in mature markets, also are responsible for growth in the packaging market.” According to Euromonitor, the classic requirements for packaging are also undergoing a profound change: shifting from focus on protection and transportability to new challenges such as dosing solutions, easier handling, reclosability and controlled removal. “On the other hand, demographic changes are also leading to increasing demand for small and single-serve packages [that] can be easily consumed on-the-go or at work.” With all these packaging trends and innovations to be showcased in extensive detail, interpack 2017 offers an unparalleled opportunity to generate new ideas, meet innovative designers, and to discuss technical solutions with leading machine and packaging suppliers. As in the past, packaging sustainability will also be explored in great detail both at the show and throughout the numerous educational forums and conference sessions planned throughout the week-long event.

PRE-SHOW REPORT leading processing and packaging machine-builders, “Packaging manufacturers are under an obligation to achieve the balancing act of spectacularly presenting the package with a consumerfriendly design, while conserving raw materials and thus easing the burden on the environment.” The demand for resource-efficient packaging is at its highest point in history, according to VDMA spokesperson Vera Fritsche, with a profound impact on the design of next-generation packaging machinery. “Treating natural resources responsibly and doing business in an environment-friendly way have high priority among manufacturers of food processing machines and packaging machines. “They know that sustainable production processes are hugely important for their customers,” says Fritsche, citing burgeoning demand for energy-saving drives, motors, compressors, fans and pumps that can also help reduce water consumption. On the materials side, interpack 2017 will provide an outstanding platform for innovative developers of smart and active packaging, as well as renewable bioplastics, to provide an insight into the future of packaging. “Designed to monitor and record environmental influences to which the food is exposed, ‘smart packages’ are all the rage these days,” according to Messe Düsseldorf, “because they provide direct information on the quality status of the product. “As an example, more packages that are provided with time-temperature indicators to depict the exact degree of freshness of the product—even after the expiry date. “This technology also provides a reliable indication of whether the cold chain was interrupted, or if the product is still suitable for consumption.” For its part, the so-called “active packaging” not only protects food against external contaminants such as germs, pressure or moisture, but can actually regulate the moisture in the packaging, absorb oxygen, carbon-dioxide or ethylene, and extend the shelf-life of the packaged food. “But most important of all, they are biochemically active in being able to combat the spreading of microbial germs to enhance food safety,” says Messe Düsseldorf. As for bioplastics, show organizers look forward to displaying the latest commercial product packaging innovations derived from corn starch and sugar cane, as well as a new generation of protein-based coating materials for the production of thermoformed containers such as cups or bowls. In addition to the staggering array of product ranges to be displayed throughout the show, interpack 2017 will also explore several key themes shaping today’s

packaging research and development with special events and pavilions such as: • Save Food Congress. Sponsored by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the third international Save Food Congress— held on the opening day of the show—will be supported by the special Innovationparc area devoted to the exhibit of packaging strategies and solutions to help reduce food loss and waste. • Industry 4.0 technology lounge at the VDMA stand, running a continuous display of new applications in the applications in the packaging machinery and process technologies sector for new areas for improvement in Reiser_GroundBeefPackagingAd_v2014September_CP_Reiser 1/9/17 safety, traceability, copy and piracy protection, and

THIRSTY FOR INNOVATION Beverage companies stress individualized packaging and production line efficiencies to maintain competitive edge and market share growth

P

ackaging suppliers to the global beverage industry are increasingly tasked to kill two birds with one stone. On one hand, consumers expect individually designed packages with, if possible, enhanced value-added features and supplementary functions. At the same time, the increasingly eco-minded beverage consumers demand more sustainable, resource-conserving containers manufactured with environmentally compatible methods. The industry achieves this balancing act with new packaging strategies and efficient production equipment, which will be emphatically displayed at the upcoming interpack 2017 international packaging exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, May 4-10, 2017. These days, it is no longer enough for guests to bring their dinner host a bottle of wine. The latest trend in gift packages involves celebrating the act of giving and stimulating emotional connection with new materials and finishes, whereby bottles of wine are presented in exclusive gift boxes with the feel and appearance of real wood.

For packaging companies serving the wine industry, developing attractive cartons, folding boxes, baskets, wooden crates, decorative items and carrier bags are all part and parcel of making a gift able to leave a long-lasting impression via exclusivity and diversity. This trend is not confined solely to gifts. Experts in the beverage industry agree that just selling wine and beer in standard bottles is no longer enough to inspire consumers. The fast-growing selection of alcoholic, mixed and flavored drinks packaged in ornate bottles has become so vast in recent years that consumers can afford to be choosy. As a result, anyone who wants to attract the consumer’s attention has to have a product that stands out of the crowd at first glance. “There is a growing emphasis on packaging aesthetics, and hence on the emotions, and this is becoming increasingly important in goods consumption,” says Andreas Steinle of Zukunftsinstitut (Future Institute), a German think-tank for trend and future research. “In today’s complex world, this trend

Modern, energy-saving production machines like the Contiform AseptBlock from Krones AG help beverage producers boost overall efficiency by requiring less energy and water.

The evian brand of bottled water reflects the general current trend to individualized packaging with its Special Edition collections of fashion world-inspired glass bottles, this one paying tribute to Alexander Wang.

The versatile lid of the True Fruits smoothie bottle can be unscrewed and replaced by a salt sprinkler or tea strainer attachment, thereby upcyling the continer into a whole new useful product.

is gaining prominence because consumers actually save time by making their decisions intuitively, rather than rationally.” For example, the famed mineral water brand evian, owned by Danone Waters, goes to great lengths to highlight the uniqueness of its products. For its upscale plastic bottles, it employs the innovative new it Nature MultiPack technology that uses specialty adhesives to join the individual PET bottles together in a way that allows them to be positioned individually, and easily released from other later. The evian brand is also a pace-setter when it comes to graphic design—releasing nine Limited Edition releases of mineral water bottles styled by wellknown fashion designers since 2008. Last year, American couturier Alexander Wang took the barcode as a package theme and rendered it with black-andwhite stripes on the glass bottles—using the spaces between the stripes and a purist design to express the evian brand’s natural purity. But individuality and differentiation are not only popular among upmarket

brands, as a growing number of European beverage companies are marketing their mineral waters and sodas in smaller, half-liter returnable bottles to appeal to smaller households. Likewise, many sell their product in elegant faceted bottles to improve their chances of selection by high-class restaurants and other upscale establishments. Despite the benefits, lavish packages have their drawbacks. The greater the individuality and complexity of the product’s packaging, the more elaborate and expensive its production, with production costs ultimately passed on to consumers in higher prices. Moreover, elaborate production methods and disposable bottles are a burden on the environment, which some countries are trying to remedy by setting some ambitious targets for bottle reuse. But setting targets is easier than achieving them. While Germany, for example, wants to achieve 80-percent bottle reuse rate, it has in fact fallen to about 45 per cent today from 66 per cent in 2004. During that time, the amount of waste

from one-way drink packages has increased by 30 per cent, with total package consumption rising from 465,000 to 600,300 metric tonnes in 2014. Retailers and manufacturers are both seen as culprits behind the single-use dilemma, and German politicians are increasingly demanding implementation of a single-use deposit into an environmental steering charge on one-way packages, along with the extension of these charges to juices and nectars. However, quick-thinking companies like True Fruits are finding ways to turn environmental protection into a competitive advantage. Foregoing single-use plastic bottles, the company markets its drinks in cylindrical, ceramic-printed 250- and 750-ml glass bottles to project the image of honesty, purity, high quality and transparency, to go with the purist design. To ensure that the bottles are not simply discarded into the recycling bin after use, the company developed a series of special attachments that can be fitted onto the top of the emptied bottles. Depending on the attachment, the “upcycled” bottles can thus be used as a sprinkler for sugar, salt and spices; a pourer for oils, vinegar and sauces; or as a tea strainer. Tellingly, the True Fruits brand is currently one of Germany’s market leaders in the smoothies segment. With Coca-Cola recently unveiling its new-generation PlantBottle containers—made entirely from renewable resources—bioplastics offer another promising path for more sustainable beverage packaging. However, there is still a lot a development work to be done before plant-

based bottles can replace the widely used PET (polyethylene terephthalate) containers on a large global scale. In the meantime, optimizing energy efficiency in the production process and equipment offers the biggest sustainability payback, along with significant cost-savings. Headquartered in Dortmund, German beverage production equipment manufacturer KHS GmbH has recently enabled water-bottler Mineralbrunnen Teinach GmbH to achieve 40-pecent energy savings by modifying the heater box of the KHS-made InnoPET Blomax Series III blowmolding machine used for the production of PET bottles. According to KHS head of service engineering Frank Goebel, this was primarily achieved by incorporating advanced new ceramic reflectors and infrared radiators into the heater box, where the physical propertied of ceramic elements had dramatically improved energy distribution—significantly reducing the amount of energy required to heat the pre-forms. “In addition, the reflectors and infrared radiators have been configured in such a way that the bottle’s delicate thread zone is not heated unnecessarily, thereby reducing the amount of energy required to cool that area of the machine,” says Goebel. “Thanks to greater efficiency, it is often possible to shorten the heating section,” he adds, “so that the energy consumption by the infrared radiators also drops correspondingly.”

The direct printing of bottles provides an effective way of individualizing beverage containers.

ON TO THE NEXT BIG THING

A

s the momentum for Industry 4.0 implementation in the packaging industry continues to grow at a dizzying pace, many of the world’s leading industrial automation companies are already jostling for market supremacy in what is still a relatively uncharted territory. For some companies, like the renowned German automation technologies and services giant Bosch Rexroth, the industry’s keen interest in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is well-justified in terms of the enormous potential for driving greater cost efficiencies, productivity levels and equipment performance throughout all facets of the packaging supply chain. But achieving those lofty goals requires finding the right automation partner to navigate the CPG (consumer packaged goods) companies or packaging OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) through the highly complex, disruptive and genuinely revolutionary journey demanding exceptional technological competence, knowledge and expertise. Happily for Bosch Rexroth, the company has it all in spades, along with a vast product portfolio that it will unveil at the upcoming interpack 2017 global packaging trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, May 6-10, 2017, under the Connected Automation i4.0 now show banner. According to the company, “As Industry 4.0 moves from potential to reality, it’s clear that no single company or organization can do it alone. “Only with open cooperation and the exchange of ideas and solution approaches will Industry 4.0 concepts find their way to/into practical solutions. “That is why Bosch Rexroth is collaborating with research organizations, OEMs, manufacturers and IT partners for cutting-edge solutions to enable our partners and customers to work with their preferred development environment and programming languages from the IT world—to maximize the efficiency and versatility of automation development.” Building on over 30 years of experience in the packaging area as a premiere motion control solutions supplier, Bosch Rexroth’s Connected Automation portfolio offers packaging machinery numerous competitive advantages, including: • Connectivity for all Industry 4.0 applications for horizontal and vertical networking of automation components via the company’s robust Open Core Interface technology to achieve higher OEE (operational equipment effectiveness) performance. • Ease-of-Use, enabled by the ActiveCockpit interactive communication platform to processes and visualize data in real time, along with VarioFlow plus system for effective individual part transfer with minimal planning effort,

The key to the D-Series flexibility is a smaller i-Tech scan head, connected to the laser tube on a multi-position mount. The head can be rotated through 90 degree steps to allow for many mounting positions, and because it is so much smaller, it can easily fit where bigger lasers cannot. Increased power and speed, combined with an optional IP65-rated version, result in the D620i laser, that is equal to the most demanding applications and environments. RapidScan makes our lasers 20% faster for high-speed applications than other scribing lasers.

Domino’s i-Tech Ribbon Drive offers 4 ribbon save settings including ‘Economy Mode’ which allows you to use up to 60% less ribbon per print - without affecting print quality. The V230i prints high resolution codes, text and images onto flexible foils, films and labels. Unlike other thermal transfer coders, the V230i uses intelligent Technology to meet all your general purpose coding needs while keeping your costs as low as possible. The i-Tech Ribbon Drive uses up to 60% less ribbon per print and virtually eliminates downtime related to ribbon break due to its unique dancing arm tension control. Ribbon change is also quick and infrequent thanks to cassette loading of larger than standard ribbon rolls. With the largest ribbon rolls in the industry and unique ribbon save features, the V320i also delivers the lowest cost of ownership of all thermal transfer printers.

The M-Series Corner Wrap i-Tech units are flexible and reliable automated Print & Apply tamp solutions. Incorporating the latest i-Tech features, the innovative corner wrap functionality and high labelling speed allow it to keep pace with most carton erector and filling lines. The M230i Pallet Labeller is compact in size, yet rugged and industrialised. Thanks to its innovative design the applicator can easily be set up to label one, two, or three sides of the pallet, giving you the flexibility to meet both current and future requirements. Incorporating the latest i-Tech features, the innovative corner wrap functionality and high labelling speed allow it to keep pace with most carton erector and filling lines. Whether your line is simple or complex, the G-Series range has the capability to integrate easily, with up to four print headsmanaged by a single controller.
