Global Packaging Alliance Holds Annual Meeting in Brazil

Global Packaging Alliance® Holds Annual Meeting
in São Paolo, Brazil
Emerging packaging trends are impacting brands, retailers, and consumers in new ways, and creating opportunities for packaging converters at the same time. Members of the Global Packaging Alliance® (GPA) discussed this and other issues during their annual meeting held in São Paolo, Brazil last month. Representatives from the global consortium of independent, medium-sized packaging manufacturers convened from all over the world to explore solutions to evolving packaging requirements.

Gonçalves, a leading supplier of cosmetic and health care folding cartons in Latin America, hosted the meeting at their newly-built, state-of-the-art Cajamar headquarters, located in the metropolitan region of São Paulo. The building’s design ingenuity has transformed the space into a world-class reference for functionality, aesthetics, and sustainability. The 54,000 m2 industrial plant supports 20+ production lines, with an arrangement of machines that contributes to a natural workflow. Technical and architectural solutions (e.g., reflective windows, thermo acoustic roof tiles, LED lighting) all improve the plant’s energy efficiency, which supports the ongoing commitment to sustainability shared by all GPA members.
