Spill-proof closure system
Packaging Europe
The Flex28 closure, designed by SmartSeal SA, is an automatically-activated valve design that gives the user the benefit of integrated hands-free spill control on top of the traditional sports closure features. The technology involved resembles that of valves used for scuba diving. The valve is triggered by the slight under-pressure in the mouth while drinking from the bottle. When suction is applied to the closure, the valve releases and expels water and when suction is removed the valve closes again, preventing any liquids from spilling.

Clicking with the e-commerce consumer
Packaging News
E-commerce sceptics have long argued that there’s something about the physical act of shopping that cannot be replicated by looking at a screen at home. This would prompt some, who always believed a shift to online shopping was inevitable, to consider whether the theatre of retail could somehow be brought to the home. However, it seems that in 2015 it might not be the most relevant question to ask.
