Needs-adapted and purpose-designed packaging is a prerequisite for international trade and is thus a crucial factor in ensuring the welfare of the global economy. To an increasing degree, packaging is used to transport, market and sell its content. Packaging is thus an important carrier of the brand and market communication.
