Packaging Design Event to Be Held in Chicago
Packaging Digest will hold its inaugural Packaging Design 2012: Innovation from concept to consumer event September 25-26 in Chicago, which aims to help develop and share packaging solutions.
The event will bring packaging designers, manufacturers and engineers together to stimulate and share innovations, helping the industry translate design concepts and tools into solutions within packaging manufacturing.
"Today, packaging design is poised to be the core media element that physically and emotionally connects consumers with great products and further propels brand value," said keynote speaker, Vince Voron, associate vice president and head of design of Coca-Cola North America and former senior industrial design manager at Apple.
Jennie-O Makes Packaging News
The design event isn't the only recent packaging news announcement. Jennie-O, a brand of turkey products, will now be offering a new zipper packaging for its turkey bacon recipe that is now healthier.
The packaging, set to make its debut in stores nationwide this month, will be used for the company's latest turkey bacon offering, which features significantly less sodium and fat than pork bacon. The lean turkey bacon is now part of Jennie-O's full suite of turkey breakfast sausage links and patties.
