Key Issues

The Association remains attentive to public issues that impact the corrugated packaging industry.  We seek to understand the full background of trends or changing issues and act in an appropriate fashion.

 

Input from customers, members and related industry associations provide sound advice to rely on.  We maintain an active role in areas of food safety, good manufacturing processes, government bodies and related packaging forums that support current issues.

 

Corrugated packaging is a sustainable, high performance system for protection, automation and delivery of products around the world.  We promote and defend these valuable characteristics.

Studies

Academic research is the foundation of growth – and truth.  The CCCA seeks the structured analysis provided by research at Canadian universities on some key issues.

Packaging Designs

Our industry members are packaging experts, design specialists and the most creative professionals you will meet.
