COVID-19 first made its presence felt in Germany when restrictions on large gatherings started from mid-March 2020. Schools, many shops and all foodservice outlets (for dine-in) were closed, travel was restricted, and many of the country’s borders were sealed off. For alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, the full closure of cafés and restaurants during the first lockdown in spring 2020 was followed by lower traffic after their reopening in May.

The publisher's Packaging in Germany report offers insight into key trends and developments in the industry. The report also examines trends and prospect for various pack types and closures: metal packaging, rigid plastic, glass, liquid cartons, paper-based containers; flexible packaging.
