Nations across the globe, including those in Asia and the Middle East, are continuing to develop, and that is good news for packaging manufacturers such as Graphic Packaging Holding Co. (NYSE: GPK) of Atlanta. Grocery stores and other consumer goods retailers are expanding their international presence as spending rises in these markets. The result is a big need for things like packaged foods.
Graphic Packaging has made it clear that it will continue to look for growth opportunities in the U.S. and abroad. The company, which makes containers and boxes for the food-and-beverage and consumer sectors, has been making acquisitions.
