Get a glimpse on the results:

 "There is almost universal ‘trust’ from brands that design partners can implement connected packaging (97%), but this drops dramatically when asked if they ‘fully trust’ those partners (57%). This level of trust also diverges by market, with the highest level of ‘full trust’ shown by Alcoholic Beverages brands in the UK (63%) and the lowest also by Alcoholic Beverage brands, but in the US (53%). Despite this ‘trust gap’, 93% of brands say that they are willing to experiment with new connected experiences, with the highest levels of willingness found in the Alcoholic Beverages and CPG categories in the UK, which both scored over 50% on being ‘very open’ to experimentation."

As epda we endorsed this report with a comment by Vice President Uwe Melichar.
