About Packaging News

At the heart of the packaging supply chain

Packaging is one of the UK economy’s most vibrant, creative and diverse industries.

With a supply chain covering manufacturing, retail, design, logistics and more, the industry has a broad and demanding range of information needs.

Packaging News, both in print and online, sits right at the heart of that supply chain.

Production, design and more

Wherever our readers work – be they operations director at a converter, a packaging technologist at a brand owner, a designer in a branding agency or a sales manager for an equipment supplier – they turn to Packaging News for authoritative, timely and business-critical information on their industry.

Why? First and foremost, they know they can trust what they read in Packaging News both in print and online on packagingnews.co.uk.

Inform and inspire

Through our daily and weekly news bulletins and the monthly magazine, we aim to keep our audience informed of the biggest news, issues and debates affecting the whole packaging supply chain.

We aim to inspire them by highlighting the best innovations and most interesting graphic and structural designs coming to market.

What’s more, our dedicated equipment section and weekly email Equipment Bulletin, cover the latest investments and new products in the market.

Reaching top decision makers

Packaging News is requested by more than 10,000 readers every month – 100% of whom are involved in investment decisions. It is also the only monthly packaging magazine whose circulation is verified by a full ABC profile.

Meanwhile, packagingnews.co.uk attracts more than 44,000 unique users every month. Around a third of visits to the site come from outside the UK, making Packaging News a truly international brand.

Events, supplements and more

But there’s more to Packaging News. With events such as the industry-leading UK Packaging Awards, conferences, special supplements, show guides, targeted features and much more.

The UK Packaging Awards is the UK’s leading awards programme and celebrates both outstanding packaging design and innovation and excellent business performance. For full details on the Awards, visit www.ukpackagingawards.co.uk.
