10 a.m. - 10.45 a.m.: How to create better customer experiences with less environmental impact?

Everyone is accountable for his choice of ingredients, formulas, packaging and secondary packagings. This workshop organized by one of the leading European cardboard producers, the Finnish Group Metsä Board, will be aimed at showing participants all the advantages of a material whose production is fully driven by this notion of sustainable development. This workshop will be hosted by Christophe Baudry, Commercial Director, Beautycare & Healthcare, Metsä Board and Anne Uusitalo: Sustainability Manager, Metsä Board.

12. p.m. - 12.45 p.m.: Cardboard, why, and what for?

It is one of the biggest trends in recent months. Make-up products increasingly benefit from the technical, visual and marketing performance of cardboard-based over packagings to attract consumers. Some countries such as Korea and Japan are leading the way in this area. With the participation of the Nordic paper Group Stora Enso, four converters specialized in the manufacture of boxes and set boxes will give you the keys that will enable you to stand out from the competition.

  • A universal and unique material: tomorrow’s products from renewable resources. By Hervé Vue, Stora Enso 
  • The over packaging you were looking for!  A round table moderated by Jean-Yves Bourgeois and / or Charles-Emmanuel Gounod, with the participation of: Luca Meana (Cartografica Pusterla), Pierre Hauw (MMP Premium), Gilles Regnard (Autajon Packaging), Jean-Marc Bodineau (Nortier).

There is a twofold trend in favour of the use of cardboard-based over packagings in the make-up segment: a real added value for the presentation and protection of products and the development of sales on the internet. What innovations, what developments does it generate? How to address to this new trend? What can be done and not done?
