More recent research
In 2007, A.MPT.0016 funded a Packaging Toolkit as a guide to assist industry in dealing with packaging within their organisation whether this was from the inception stage or an up-dating of an existing pack. It provided an outline of the factors which need to be considered in contemplating or introducing a new pack in a step-wise progression. Equally it could be used to review an existing pack with the aim of updating or modification.
