Paperboard's Future (sidebar)

A group of executives at U.S. paperboard manufacturing and packaging companies, known as the Paperboard Packaging Alliance (PPA), raised this question: How can paperboard packaging create more value for consumer packaged goods companies?

In this issue, Packaging World begins a continuing series during 2005 that will lay out the research findings and discuss where and why the opportunities exist. The first article explores two key questions: What do the changing marketing dynamics mean for paperboard packaging, and what are both consumer and retailer perceptions of paperboard packaging?
