Sonoco plans to further expand Sonopost® cornerpost manufacturing in Europe. A new protective packaging production facility is set to open in Bursa, Turkey in November, one year after Sonoco established the first Sonopost® operation in Sochaczew, Poland.
Sonoco received the award jointly with Premier Foods for its Bisto Gravy paperboard drum packaging solution, which was recognised for being fully recyclable, having a positive impact on global supply chains and offering a higher product fill amount to consumers.
Sonoco’s rigid paper containers are used to package some of the world’s most iconic food brands. Many of its most recent innovations will be on display in Birmingham later this month.
The UK Government’s proposed EPR legislation seeks to boost recycling rates in the UK, and to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill or for incineration. This is a goal Sonoco wholeheartedly shares and is continually working towards.
