15 fundamentals packaging pros should know

Packaging professionals tend to be curious, intelligent people. They wonder about anything and everything related to packaging, such as materials, design, formats, troubleshooting and other aspects of the industry. At Packaging Digest, we satisfy that constant curiosity by researching, writing and posting articles on a variety of packaging-pertinent topics. We chat about robotics, material reduction, the ins and outs of healthcare packaging and more.

Our team of journalists works hard to bring you interesting, useful and entertaining stories about various aspects of packaging. When these stories resonate with readers well after their original publication date, it makes us happy. It is always nice to know our articles are connecting with you weeks, months, even years after they first hit the web.

Our review of the top stories of the year revealed more than a dozen high up in the list that deal with the basics of packaging. [A healthy chunk of them are healthcare related, so we also compiled “Packaging ‘basics’ popular with healthcare professionals”.]
