Sustainability, digitalisation, innovation and the circular economy have for some years now been the vectors of change that have allowed the consumer’s priority to shift from price to product and/or service.
In the current scenario, society’s interest lies in finding solutions that are increasingly in line with the historical moment we live in, and this is reflected in the filters applied in the search for suppliers that are capable of offering a sustainable and environmentally friendly response.
The packaging sector is one of many that have been challenged, not only by social pressure and new market trends, but also by legislative initiatives.
The Law on Waste and Contaminated Land for a Circular Economy has been defined and published, which together with the Royal Decree on Packaging and Packaging Waste makes up the Spanish Circular Economy Strategy, whose objective is to establish the principles of circularity, contribute to the fight against climate change and protect the marine environment, while complying with the Sustainable Development Goals included in the 2030 Agenda, which contribute to innovation and sustainability in the world of packaging.
In line with this paradigm shift and the demand for sustainable solutions without losing competitiveness, Movitec, a partner of Barcelona Packaging Hub, is studying and testing options so that it can be recognised and valued for its differential in this already mature market sector.
Movitec aims to meet both the quality and production requirements of today’s markets, offering both design and consumable solutions that are up to the demands of the industry.
It is for this reason that we consider innovation and sustainability in the packaging world as a priority, looking for more sustainable alternatives when designing our equipment and that its useful life is as long as possible, without the need to waste resources and guaranteeing a high degree of efficiency and performance: the latest restyling of our Saturn wrappers makes them more energy efficient and the intelligent solutions incorporated in our machines allow us to analyse and optimise both the wrapping processes and the film consumption.
On the other hand, our cardboard corner application system, for example, optimises stretch film consumption and at the same time improves load stability.
We continue to innovate to keep pace with the speed at which technology and society evolves, so that our customers get added value and remain competitive.
