The eventual objective is the developments of a packaging industry that will help the commercial products manufactured in our country find a place in domestic and foreign markets and gain competitive power with the added value obtained through original and correct packaging applications. The entries of the competition are expected to consider the 3 basic functions of packaging, namely Containing, Protecting and Selling with Sustainable point of view.
13 Sustainability can be obtained by using less resources. If the environmental impact of a specific packaging is considered, optimum material usage and less energy consumption during the production of a packaging become more important. New design of the packaging should be performed by considering proper reuse and recovery possibilities. Other expectations were the physical properties of the product for which packaging shall be designed, the type, amount (pieces or alternative sales amounts) and conditions of consumption, quality and hygiene, attraction, ability to provide information about the product, graphic design in relation to its product content, packaging recycling after consumption, consideration of changing life styles and the consequent consumer expectations.
