PKN talks... integrating sustainable packaging into luxury goods.

In this episode, Lindy Hughson, managing editor and publisher of PKN Packaging News talks to Robert Lockyer, founder and chief client officer of Delta Global, about designing sustainable packaging for luxury goods.

Robert starts by walking us through the process of founding Delta Global, how he overcame the challenges of launching a business from the bottom up, and grew it to the size it is today.

We then get an overview of Delta Global and Inspiring-i’s collaborative report ‘Navigating a Greener Future’, with key insights into consumer behaviours in Australia and the Asia Pacific region, their major focus on sustainable packaging, and how they compare to US and European consumers.

The discussion also explores the increased adoption of pre-loved goods, the importance of packaging design that ensures kerbside recycling, and how excess packaging can deter consumers from luxury goods.

Throughout the session, we review the increased integration of sustainable packaging in the luxury goods market, how businesses can communicate their sustainability initiatives to their consumers, and how the design stages balance consumers' environmental and premium expectations.

We wrap up with some advice for others who are eager to integrate sustainability into their luxury goods stream.

Global food and beverage solutions company, Tate & Lyle, has acquired nature-based ingredients company CP Kelco for US$1.8 billion on a cash-free, debt-free basis. Tate & Lyle said the deal will “significantly accelerate” its growth plans.   

While it’s common knowledge that a well-marbled steak makes for tastier eating, there’s no official international measure for what constitutes quality meat. MEQ CEO, Remo Carbone, puts the case for establishing a global standard to grade red meat.
