Many challenges face cigarette packaging in today’s market. Packaging should reflect brand values, while conveying mandatory health warnings. It should be durable, robust, tactile and safe for use. As well as providing optimal performance in print and converting, packaging needs to be sustainable, free from odour and taint, lightweight and strong. For global brands, an efficient supply chain must be in place in all regions where customers are present, offering seamless availability.
