It has emphasised the importance of adopting an integrated approach to packaging by those involved in product design and development, materials and machinery development, production processes, logistics and distribution, quality assurance, marketing, environmental management/sustainability and purchasing. An integrated approach to packaging design and innovation requires consideration of key issues and values throughout the packaging chain.

In particular, order lead times for packaging components need to be carefully planned with suppliers at an early stage in order to ensure a realistic time plan. 2. There may be issues such as a supplier’s availability of injection stretch blow-moulding machines due to seasonal demand for drinks containers and consequent lack of spare production capacity. With reference to the definition ‘Packaging in product distribution is aimed at maximising sales (and repeat sales, and so profits), while minimising the total overall cost of distribution from the point of pack filling onwards and, possibly, extending to used packaging reuse, disposal or recovery’, packaging should be regarded as ‘a benefit to be optimised rather than merely a cost to be minimised’ (Paine & Paine, 1983).
