The United Kingdom packaging market has annual sales of GBP 11 billion and employs approximately 85,000 individuals that represent 3% of the UK’s manufacturing labor force. It is a foremost contributor to the nations GDP and a vital link in the wide-ranging packaging supply chain (Packaging Federation). In spite of consistently growing demands for goods and services, growths in the packaging in recent years have facilitated a decoupling of packaging growth from GDP growth.
