Dallas & Aidan in China
Dallas and I have spent a few days this week looking at new technology & sustainable materials on display at the APPP EXPO in Shanghai.
We caught up with the team at Kavalan who are leading the field in sustainable print products to replace PVC Banner Vinyl. Currently we use their more sustainable substrates but are really excited by their aim to have a 100% biodegradable product ready for us within the next 12 months.
We were also thrilled to catch up with Leon, one of our valued suppliers in China. Leon has been supplying quality display products to Benefitz for well over a decade.
A major growth area in our business in recent years has been fabric printing. We've visited a number of factories in Haining and Shanghai during our time here, and it's been a great experience to see how our current fabric suppliers produce the sustainable fabrics that we print on.
A key reason we travelled to China was to understand the products being developed to fit with our environmental goals, and we're truly excited about what we've discovered.
