Driven by a shared need for innovative solutions to efficiently deliver products to consumers in an ever-changing world, we have further expanded our partnership with Zalando, one of the leading European online platforms for fashion and lifestyle, to become their principal supplier. Working closely together through Innovation Days, PackRight Workshops and testing workshops, Zalando now has a 5-year innovation roadmap for its packaging solutions, designed to drive optimisation and reduce waste in packaging that arrives into the hands of Zalando customers. Partnering with a new, collaborative way of working, we are setting a strong ambition for Zalando to lead the way in reuse, world class efficiency in its packaging and to play a key role in the transition to the circular economy.
