DS Smith, a producer of sustainable packaging, has announced an exclusive partnership with the company Touchguard to develop a new range of sustainable cardboard packaging to protect consumers against potentially harmful bacteria. The new range promises to support the sustainable packaging market with potential scope across a variety of areas, including e-commerce and food packaging, while still being 100 percent recyclable. The patented technology is effective against a number of bacteria and viruses, including enveloped viruses, of which SARS-CoV-2 is a member. The coating can be applied at scale across a range of applications, providing an additional layer of protection for consumers and workers throughout the supply chain.
