Touchpoint Packaging is a special area at drupa. Since the spring of 2018, the brand owners Nestlé and Danone with seven market leaders from printing and packaging technologies, - including Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, - have made up the steering committee for this initiative. The intent is not to focus on what is already being done but to showcase inspiring new cases addressing brands challenges and pointing out meaningful directions where packaging can go.
All members are engaged with this topic and they all want to contribute to a better world with a better packaging production. The drupa Touchpoint Packaging experience will be a drupa 2020 must see with guided tours, short lectures and samples to collect.

Different package sizes, dosages, and drug concentrations – batch sizes in the pharmaceutical industry are decreasing.
