Brandon grew up in the packaging industry and initially didn't want to work in the family business, but eventually returned and has been running it for the past five years.
Transparency and sustainability are becoming increasingly important in the packaging industry, and brands are starting to demand more information about the supply chain and the sustainability of packaging materials.
The last day of trade shows like Cosmoprof can be the best time to have meaningful conversations with brands, as most buyers have already left and there is less crowding in the booths.
