About HOTSPOTS by Elopak

Elopak’s blog informs experts and interested parties about innovations and current market trends in the carton packaging segment. In addition to new products and advances in filling technology, we place a special focus on sustainability. We are convinced that responsibility does not stop with the content. Contemporary packaging must be geared towards the goal of a low-emission circular economy, while protecting the products inside and leaving the world unharmed at the same time. Not only the material and design of the packaging, but also the underlying filling technology and logistics can support manufacturers, bottlers and retailers in achieving their own ambitious environmental goals in optimal interaction.
