Packaging manufacturer Coveris has opened its sustainable development centre in Leeds.
The new Pack Positive Centre is designed to help retailers, brand owners, manufacturers and technology partners to collaborate with Coveris to create sustainable packaging through the supply chain. The facility is supported with an academic partnership with Leeds Beckett University’s The Retail Institute.
Coveris officially opened the site at the end of January with a one-day event. Speakers at the event included: Olga Munroe from The Retail Institute; Lee Marshall from the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee; Roy Cox from WRAP; the OPRL’s Stuart Lendrum; and Professor Jeff Gold from Leeds Beckett University.
Adam Robinson, insights and creative manager at the Pack Positive Centre said: “The Pack Positive Centre will be instrumental in delivering Coveris’ 2025 vision for a circular economy and supporting our customers and retail partners achieve their sustainability targets. Through collaboration with stakeholders in the supply chain, access to expert capabilities and extensive consumer and retail insight via our partnership with The Retail Institute, the centre will facilitate education and innovation as we lead positive and ambitious change in the packaging industry.”
