Happy almost St. Patrick's Day everyone! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Here are some of the top stories from this past week that we tweeted at @WeberPackaging.
The Anaheim Convention Center hosted the annual Natural Products Expo West last week. This is the leading trade show for the organic, natural and healthy products industry.
We've been following the updates from the show to see what the new trends in natural are and, of course, what packaging is being used.

The pharmaceutical industry is dealing with an ongoing problem of counterfeit pharmaceuticals being sold around the world. Not only does this hurt their brand but it is also very dangerous.

Even though Prop37 failed in California in November, GMO labeling has not left the headlines. Several state governments are proposing labeling laws that would require products with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) to be labeled on the product.
The major grocery chain, Whole Foods Market, announced this week that they will require products sold in their store to be labeled if they have GMOs.
We can help our many customers who sell in Whole Foods prepare their new label art whether they need to add a GMO label or want to label theirs "GMO-Free".
