Southgate to showcase sustainable solutions at Packaging Innovations

Southgate Global, one of Europe’s leading packaging suppliers, is exhibiting once again at this year’s Packaging Innovations, the UK’s leading packaging event.

Taking place over two days, from May 25-26, 2022, held at the NEC in Birmingham, the exhibition will bring together brands and retailers with hundreds of packaging suppliers to discover the latest industry trends and learn from sector-focused content.

Southgate is set to showcase a brand-new stand featuring its vast range of new product launches at the exhibition to potential buyers, generating leads and opening doors with key decision makers.

With a focus on sustainability, products on display will include: the RSW6 Robotic Pallet Wrapper, BP555 Tape Dispenser, PWN4 Air Pillow System, OP320 Optimax Shredder and Xtegra Tegrabond Water Activated Tape Case Taper.

Darren Smith, Head of Marketing at Southgate, said: “We are very excited to be exhibiting at Packaging Innovations again after great success last year. The event is the best place to showcase e-commerce packaging solutions, and with the demand increasing for sustainable alternatives for secondary and protective packaging, we look forward to displaying our expanding range.”

As an industry leader in the field of sustainable packaging, Southgate is committed to developing alternative products to significantly reduce waste and plastic content and promote the idea of a circular economy.

Since the new Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) was first announced, Southgate has been advising and inspiring businesses to embrace the global solution to eliminating waste.

“In the lead up to the tax being introduced, we have been working hard developing NPD which meets the criteria and offers an environmentally friendly alternative. Our goal has been to have an eco-friendly alternative for all our packaging products, and we’re looking forward to displaying a number of those at the exhibition.”

Located on stand J42, visitors will be able to watch the head turning RSW6 Robotic Pallet Wrapper in action again this year, ideal for palletised loads that are too large, heavy, or unstable to be wrapped on a traditional turntable machine.

Those looking for sustainable e-commerce solutions can witness the OP320 Optimax Shredder in action, showing how easy it is to turn old carboard packaging into high-bulk void fill. Reducing the costs of disposal and providing free, environmentally friendly packing material.

Southgate serves over 600 leading distributors across the UK and Europe, with customers specialising in warehousing and logistics.

Southgate has achieved a Silver EcoVadis rating, showcasing its focus on driving sustainability within its business and the wider industry. The rating recognises Southgate’s continued focus on cultivating innovative, eco-friendly packaging alternatives.
