Requirements for safe food packaging are changing now more than ever. Customers reward companies that adhere to the new guidelines and trends. As the global food packaging market approaches $400 billion by 2025, consumer desires and modern lifestyles continue to facilitate a shift in how people perceive food, according to “Trends and Advances in Food Packaging and Processing” from PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. 5 trends that continue to be of concern are:
- Clean Labels
- Plant-Based Ingredients
- Lifestyle Foods
The outbreak of Covid-19 has brought to the forefront additional packaging concerns such as:
- Sustainable Food and Beverage Packaging (“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”)
- Post-Consumer Resins (PCRs)
- E-Commerce Packaging
- Interactive Packaging
