The beneficial effects of resveratrol on the memory

Posted by on Tuesday December 16th, 2014 in Packaging news | 0 comments

The beneficial effects of resveratrol (phenol obtained from grape skin) on a cardiovascular level is well-known, however, a recent study by German researchers, which was published in the “Journal of Neuroscience” has shown how it can enhance memory performance in adults. A total of 46 healthy adults were chosen, 23 were subjected to a cycle of 200mg per day of resveratrol for 26 weeks and the other 23 were given a placebo. Before and after this period, the volunteers underwent a memory and neuroimaging test to confirm hippocampus activity. A significant effect of resveratrol was noted on the retention of words for more than 30 minutes, and also led to a significant increase in functional connectivity of the hippocampus and decrease in the glycated haemoglobin compared to the group that was administered the placebo. This provides concrete evidence that...

Posted by on Tuesday December 9th, 2014 in Beverage, Exhibitions | 0 comments

For over 50 years Simei has been a reference point for a key sector in international economy and especially Italy’s economy: wine. Precisely Italy is playing a leading role in terms of technological innovation.

The annual conference of Finat (international trade association for self-adhesive labels and associated sectors) was held last June in Monte Carlo, which was dedicated to the “struggle for visibility on the shelf”. The importance of the appearance of a product and its label has transpired from this event. The key to success lies in guaranteeing impact and visibility to products in various sectors, from supermarkets to bars and clubs. Today, consumers only spend an average of 20 minutes in a supermarket. This is why it is essential for the product to succeed in being noticed from the shelf. Rick Olthof, who takes care of brand strategies at the company Cartils, has identified 5 pillars that define brand success: the shape of the product that defines its character, the colour that stirs emotions, authenticity, authority, and prestige obtained by means...

Evolution and importance of beverage packaging

Posted by on Tuesday November 25th, 2014 in Beverage | 0 comments

According to the latest survey by PMMI (Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies) the beverage packaging industry in North America will reach a value of 26 billion dollars thanks to the plastic bottle drive unit. Plastic is the most commonly used material for bottling, representing more than 40% of the market and the plastic bottle is the most popular format for beverages. Aluminium cans follow this positive trend, which is mainly driven by the increase in sales of energy drinks, while flexible bags have recorded a much slower but constant increase thanks to packaging for fruit juices. Packaging is becoming increasingly important and is the main means of communication to consumers who value the brand. Trends also stress how some important key functions of packaging entice consumers to purchase the item, such as different systems of opening for better...
