Latest packaging innovations from MonteCarlo

Latest packaging innovations from MonteCarlo

Eva Lagarde

re/sources found many interesting innovations at LUXEPACK Monaco. All companies are working really HARD to provide or turn their solutions into more sustainable innovations, so we mostly discovered incremental innovations.

The three trends that we've identified at the show:

1️⃣ WONDER ✨
Making everything wonderful and engage consumers with products through experiential packaging. Particularly amazed by the design and decoration capabilities from GROUPE POCHET (Pochet du Courval - Qualipac - Aura - Solev), INCA Packaging and Lumson Group.

Where every packaging needs to touch and feel sustainable. Consumers need to see the fibers, the grains and every aspects of the packaging. Still a small signal in the industry as we work in Luxury and brands want to keep packaging luxurious, but I think we will see more of that in the future. Astounded by solutions from Pujolasos and COSMOGEN .

In line with accessible solutions, and making products more inclusive, packaging providers have transformed packaging into intuitive applications, especially in the refill category. Impressed by solutions from Silgan Dispensing, Albéa Group, and PINARD BEAUTY PACK collab' with Aptar.

INCA - Aluminum closures

Italian manufacturer of aluminium packaging has released cap and overshell with lacquered aluminium with different holographic effect to bring wonder to the packaging object.

We think this contribute to the current trend of making packaging more sustainable (full aluminum = full recyclability) while bring a high level of luxury with shines and finishes, and transform refillable host packaging into desirable and sometime collectable object.

INCA has also developped a range of lipstick in full Aluminum. All packagings can be decorated in engraving and laser.

In short:

  • Full Alu
  • Full Recyclable
  • Heavy Cap with weight in alu
  • Monomaterial travel case for vial 10 ml - Monomaterial cap for fragrances
  • Mono-material lid for cream jar
  • Refill system for 100% recyclable cream jar in aluminium (ongoing test)
