Sonoco is pleased to announce that it is a member of French association Ligépack as of the end of 2023.

Established in 2011, the association collaborates with packaging companies to enhance their expertise, improve the quality and safety of their solutions, and reduce their environmental impact. It currently has more than 80 members and 30 partners, and it carries out services including: auditing, consulting, support with packaging design, testing and analysing solutions, and research and reports.

It also offers training and advice about packaging requirements and regulations, and it helps its members to navigate the challenges of being involved with the food packaging supply chain.

Sonoco is a manufacturer of sustainable packaging solutions, and as a member of LigĂ©pack, it will be able to offer its expertise in converting and designing packaging that is recyclable and maintains product freshness.

Sonoco looks forward to collaborating with other Ligépack members to make food packaging across the board more sustainable and ultimately drive up recycling rates across Europe.

Philippe Creux, Sales Director – France, at Sonoco Consumer Europe, comments: “Our team is delighted to be a member of LigĂ©pack. We have already helped several food brands to convert their packaging to our recyclable, paper-based solutions, helping them to improve their recyclability and brand image, and appeal to more environmentally mindful consumers. We look forward to collaborating with other LigĂ©pack members to share our insight and keep up-to-date with packaging regulations across France and in the many European countries we operate in.”

Sylvie Moison, Director General at LigĂ©pack, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Sonoco as our newest LigĂ©pack member. Having Sonoco onboard will help us to continue our mission of improving the quality and security of food packaging while reducing its environmental impact.

“We look forward to finding out more about Sonoco’s packaging converting projects as it continues to help its customers opt for recyclable, paper-based solutions.”

Over the last few years, Sonoco has continued to focus on its sustainability credentials. In August 2022, it became a member of the European Organization for Packaging and the Environment (EUROPEN); and in May 2021, it joined the Industry Council for Packaging & the Environment (INCPEN).
