Making the cut was a sustainable jug, a reclosure partnership involving a major brand owner, a dairy company that got flexible, tactile-inducing packaging and beer packaging loaded with value-added mystery.


Although it has come and gone, the month of March saw the welcome start of spring and a keen interest in five highly popular articles on as determined by website analytics. Read what packaging developments your peers found most interesting, though you’ll see that this list includes a rare, exact-number tie at #2. Our list starts in reverse order at #4 as seen above:

4. A joint effort from Nestle Purina PetCare and Ecologic Brands Inc. (shown above) is a molded fiber bottle made from recycled, recyclable molded paper pulp with built-in handle that holds eco-friendly cat litter. In addition to being easy on the environment, the jug is user-friendly. The packaging design features a sturdy molded handle, a helpful feature for a product with fill weights of 6 and 10.5 lbs. Read more about the development in our exclusive interview.

 Next up: #3 involves a CPG, a well-known R&D organization and a new kind of low-tack adhesive that sticks only to itself.
