Smart packaging and digital innovation: rising stars showcased at PCD
The recent packaging show dedicated to beauty and personal care solutions showcased some emerging tech solutions that are causing a stir.

Here, we present a roundup of some of the key players.


WooDoo is a cleantech player that has created ‘bionic wood’. Its patented tech follows over half a decade of research, and consists of a new wood material: waterproof, 300% more stiff, fire-retardant and translucent.

Based on the circular economy principles, this material is “about to make a change in the construction industry, tackling tomorrow’s zero net carbon cities,” according to Climate KIC​.

In presenting at ADF&PCD, WooDoo made clear it is also looking to offer packaging solutions for beauty players looking to make a sustainable shift.


Packitoo aims to reinvent the way companies develop and source their packaging.

It is a sourcing platform for all types of packaging, including boxes, shopping bags, labels, bottles, gifts & premiums, cardboard, paper, glass, metal, fabrics,

The model works by linking brands with packaging suppliers, as a B2B (business to business) portal.
