The Tube Council provides educational resources, information, and networking opportunities to professionals within the tube industry.

Each year, Tube Council members present the best and most innovative tubes in various market categories including the Personal Care, Oral Care, Pharmaceutical, Industrial and Household and Food markets. Innovations in Sustainability and Product Components and processes are also considered.

According to Bruno Lebeault, President of the Tube Council, “Tubes are definitely getting more attention and our Tube of the Year Competition is receiving more and more recognition by Brands”. He further remarked that “Recently, during our Fall Membership Conference which was attended by leading Brands using Tubes and other type of packaging, a key message was that these brand owners prefer tubes over other packaging types noting that tubes have a higher output compared to other containers, like bottles; tubes are a complete packaging without any need to apply a label or a cap; and decoration is usually better on tubes. " It is great to see all companies working together towards a common goal, challenging each other on innovation and sustainability and helping consumer goods brands achieve their goals with innovative tube packaging.
