Hi there!

I’m David Holliday; welcome to my packaging blog – Packaging News Net.

I’ve been involved in the packaging business for my entire career. Some of my roles include:

  • Engineering apprentice
  • R&D Technician
  • Service Technician
  • Area Sales Manager
  • Export Sales Manager
  • Product Manager
  • Business Owner
  • Marketing Manager
  • Marketing Director
  • And more.

I’ve produced a huge amount of packaging content, including over 1,000 posts at LabelingNews.com as well as videos and podcasts.

For me, this is still an incredibly cool industry and is getting more interesting all the time.

Here at Packaging News Net, you’ll find by views on many of the issues facing packaging today – I hope you enjoy the content.

Marketing and PR Opportunities


We currently don’t offer paid advertising, and you probably wouldn’t want to anyway. This is a new packaging blog, and the readership is not yet at a level where you could expect to get good results for your investment.

There are opportunities for your news and press releases, though. We are always looking for exciting news from the packaging industry, and if you have anything exciting you’d like to share, send it over, and we’ll try to publish it – both on our site and our LinkedIn page. You’ll also get a link back to your site – not a massive thing at this point, but as the site grows, that will help with your search rankings.
