PKN talks... Reducing waste and improving performance through a transition to linerless labels, with Sam Aloschi and Michael Dossor.

In this episode, Lindy Hughson, managing editor & publisher of PKN Packaging News, talks with Sam Aloschi, managing director Asia Pacific at Ravenwood Packaging, and Michael Dossor, group general manager at Result Group, about the expanding role of linerless labels in reducing packaging waste.

We start the episode with some background on both companies, their partnership and the variety of labels available to Australian packaging companies to suit a broad range of products and conditions. The discussion then moves on to Ravenwood's solid footprint in the protein sector and vacuum sealed packaging along with its next big growth areas, like fresh food packaging.

Sam and Michael talk about opportunities for growth of linerless labels, including new sectors and formats, along with increased use on fibre and boards, not just with plastic packaging. This leads to benefits such as capital savings and increased flexibility, along with the dramatic increase in sustainability through reduction of waste.

Sam also talks about Ravenwood's Circle of Linerless approach, which provides a one-stop shop for customers - from evaluation through to purchase, installation, use of sustainable materials and their performance guarantee. The discussion acknowledges that linerless labels are not the solution for every need, but is continuously expanding the sectors it can support.

We wrap the episode by looking at the barriers to conversion, the versatility of linerless systems, and that this is a tried and tested technology offering improved sustainability and risk-free implementation.
