The PURPOSE of intelliPACK
The CPEIA and PAC created intelliPACK to collaborate with all supply chain stakeholders to create awareness, educate, facilitate solutions for SMART PACKAGING.
A SMART PACKAGING Innovation Accelerator
SMART PACKAGING is an active or intelligent interactive packaging system that delivers benefits and added functionality to the value chain.
To unite leading organizations across the packaging value chain, to collaboratively explore, evaluate and mobilize innovative SMART PACKAGING solutions.
To facilitate the convergence of ideas with all supply chain stakeholders, to create awareness, educate and facilitate the commercialization of SMART PACKAGING solutions.
To accelerate the development and broad adoption of SMART PACKAGING innovations.
Serving North America while sharing solutions globally.
Alignment with like-minded organizations.
intelliPACK is a partnership between CPEIA and PAC and their respective member companies.
With printable and flexible electronics (PE), the packaging industry is definitely thinking outside the box. PE is powering new ways to manage inventory, track items as they are shipped, better maintain product freshness, monitor medication usage, identify packing materials for re-cycling and turn consumer packaging into an interactive platform.
This interactivity can be used for marketing purposes so that products on the store shelf can now communicate with consumers, for promotion, brand protection and to fight product tampering, counterfeiting and theft. Another priority application for the industry is to prevent food spoilage, considering that a full third of the world’s food goes to waste.
These are applications and opportunities that impact players from all corners of the packaging value chain, from start of life to next life. These include retailers, consumer brands, package manufacturers and services, waste management and government.
We see a tremendous opportunity to help shape the evolution of this industry.
