The African continent will become a high growth region for the packaging industry, with demand being driven by increased markets for consumer products, growing individual incomes, and an expanding population of youthful consumers.
The South African packaging industry, and those operating in African markets, will need to meet the challenges posed by trends in the global consumer packaging market in order to take advantage of this growing industry. Some of these global consumer trends include an increase in demand for premium packaging, the emergence of biodegradable plastics, the increased use of multipacks and small packs, and a need for sustainability and innovation.
The recent drought facing the Western Cape has highlighted the importance of sustainability and the preservation of precious resources. Packaging plays an important role in the prevention of food waste, thereby preserving all the resources investing in growing and producing the product. Quality packaging can dramatically extend a products shelf life, helping to save consumers money and prevent waste.
This year’s Packaging Indaba will focus on the sustainability of the packaging, plastics and printing value chains. The event will highlight how South Africa’s top retailers and brand owners are incorporating sustainable packaging into their products and reducing waste.
Mix with these industry experts & decision makers
Packaging today is more than a means to transport your goods; it is also a tool to promote, display, sell & make your product readily-available to your target market.
One should not overlook the importance of packaging, branding nor how the type of packaging, labelling or materials influence the decision to purchase.
With that in mind the spectrum of who should visit Propak Cape 2017 is actually quite broad. In fact, we feature something for everyone.
Packaging, Food Processing, Plastics, Print, Labelling
& the NEW Wine & Olive Production Expo
all at Propak Cape 2017
Propak Cape 2017 is your chance to experience this premier packaging & related industries trade exhibition in the Mother City. It’s back in Cape Town three years after the last Propak Cape held in 2014: if you miss the event this year, you’ll have to wait another three years as the next edition will be hosted in Cape Town in 2020. If that’s not enough reason to come see the advancements that have taken place within the packaging industry over the past three years, then perhaps a view as to what’s on show will help convince you.
This year Propak Cape 2017 will focus on five packaging related showcases & we are launching a brand-new Wine & Olive Oil Production Expo as a sixth. The Western Cape is the perfect home for Propak Cape considering the amount of agricultural produce that the Cape packages & exports all over the world. It’s little wonder that the region is heavily reliant on the packaging & associated industries. Come & see what’s on view.
