John Garner
Head of Innovation and Design
Antalis Packaging

John has been in logistics & packaging for 25 years – 10 of them at Antalis. He was previously head of business development until September this year when the role of head of innovation and design was created. He looks after a team of 5 designers at the Smart Packaging Centre in Coalville – “We created the facility 3 years ago and have recently relocated it into Interlink. I’m also responsible for finding and developing new materials, products, supply chains and processes that will make a real difference. “The role is in response to balancing what our customers need against what they perhaps think they need. I’m all about environmental challenges, this has been a personal passion for many years. However, I’m passionately against greenwashing and will happily join the debate on what is truly eco friendly.”
