The BCMPA – the Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment and Logistics, celebrated the success of the inaugural London Packaging Week show held at Olympia, with significant interest expressed in forging collaborative partnerships between brands, retailers and outsourcing providers.
The Association saw a large number of visitors to its stand, and along with four of its members Fillcon, Prolog Fulfilment, Sirane and The Silver Crane Co enjoyed a very busy show. Collaboration was a core theme for visitors, and with the current headwinds faced by the wider economy, many businesses are now seeing the value provided by outsourcing and the role of the BCMPA in supporting this.
Representing a host of industrial sectors including Food, Drink, Personal Care, Nutraceuticals, General Contract Packing and eCommerce Fulfilment amongst others, the BCMPA stand championed its 200+ members’ capabilities in supporting brands, retailers, and manufacturers in establishing robust and agile third-party support.
Emma Verkaik, Membership & Marketing Director of the BCMPA, said: “We are delighted with the success of London Packaging Week in helping promote the key role outsourcing plays for businesses, particularly given the challenges of today’s global supply chains.
“With the current strategy of onshoring, resulting in the return of production and sourcing of many goods to the UK, our members are playing a pivotal role in ensuring products hit the shelves or arrive at consumers’ homes exactly when they are needed.”
Commenting on the show BCMPA member James Coleman, Business Development Director at Prolog Fulfilment, said: “This was a really good show for us, with high quality visitors from start-ups to established e-commerce brands interested in our fulfilment services.”
Chris Kelly, General Manager at Fillcon, added: “With our expanding capabilities for cosmetic filling into sachets, tubes, spouted pouches and bottles, London Packaging Week proved the ideal show to demonstrate the variety of sampling solutions for the cosmetic and health and beauty market. We are delighted with the leads we have received and have already booked our stand for 2023.”
London Packaging Week is now an essential part of the exhibition calendar and, alongside its sister show in Birmingham featuring the BCMPA’s Contract Pack and Fulfilment zone, it provides the perfect opportunity for people to meet face-to-face and find out more about how outsourcing delivers essential support for brands, retailers, and manufacturers.
