The first Packaging Marketplace is born, The Pack Finder, a platform to connect suppliers and brands
- The packaging sector is in luck since from now on it has a tool with which in three simple steps you can customize the desired packaging in 3D and contact the suppliers that can provide it.
- It is an initiative of the Packaging Cluster and its associated company 3D Click, and has the support of ACCIÓ, the Agency for Business Competitiveness of the Generalitat de Catalunya
The Pack Finder is the first Marketplace that connects packaging suppliers with brands. It is a digital platform in which brands can find the packaging they need, customize it in 3D and contact the supplier, all in 3 clicks.
The Pack Finder is an online collaborative platform that connects professionals in the packaging sector with their end customers. Once you access the Marketplace, the first thing to do is look for the packaging you want based on format, material and sector, previously digitized packaging. When one has been chosen, and through 3D design, the details of the packaging can be customized in real time and finally contact the supplier to send a budget proposal. The objective is to facilitate and accelerate the time that companies spend in launching their new products to the market, while responding to real industry needs.
The Marketplace is available to all packaging companies, whether or not they are part of the Cluster, which will be able to digitize their packaging so that users can customize the characteristics of the packaging to the product to be wrapped.
The potentiality of the project enables the scope to be, not only national, but European, reaching new markets. A proposal that arises in 2020 when the Packaging Cluster and 3D Click accessed the financing package of ACCIÓ, Agency for the Competitiveness of the Company of the Generalitat de Catalunya, in support of Iniciatives de Reforç de la Competitivitat.
With this platform, the packaging sector takes a step forward in terms of innovation and makes it available to all packaging suppliers and all brands, so that they can improve their design and procurement processes.
The first brands to join the platform will be able to do so at no cost during the first year, as well as packaging companies, which have a great discount as a launch promotion. The objective is to form a great community so that the more members that can join, the more value is contributed to the entire sector.
