The European Carton Makers Association
has announced that carton packaging manufacturers are a vital part of the retail supply chain during the Covid-19 crisis.
In a time when food products are flying off the shelves, carton board packaging is considered as an essential item in maintaining food and pharmaceutical supply chains. Not only are folding cartons recyclable and sustainable, but they also facilitate the hygienic and efficient movement of products.
Europe has seen an increase in the demand for the production of packaging for dry foods, confectionery and frozen food. Additionally, the European Commission has confirmed that transportation carrying packaging materials for essential industries such as food and pharmaceuticals will be able to use its ‘green lanes’ and that it should take no longer than 15 minutes for drivers to pass through borders.
Alexir’s operations are considered essential business as we continue to produce food packaging for our customers. Both our facilities are presently running in a bid to keep supply chains moving and ensure that food gets into households.
