AUSPACK's 2017 National Technical Forums kicked off with several key insights from Euromonitor International research analyst Sara Agostino, who researches the alcoholic, hot, and soft drinks industries in Australia. Considered one of the most successful beverage packaging formats, especially in the soft drinks category, PET bottles are growing exponentially in the Asia Pacific, according to the research company. PET is preferred in the soft drinks industry due to its lightweight and cost-effective attributes, but penetration is still below 50 per cent in the Asia Pacific. www.packagingnews.com.au/events/auspack/experience-trend-drives-beverage-pack-changes?
