Emerging Trends in Food Packaging

Food waste is prevented and resources are preserved with effective food packaging designs. This is why flexible food packaging like tetra pack is growing in popularity among consumers. Its light weight, increased shelf life and creative graphics are all advantages that greatly benefit the buyers. Consumers are looking for food in packages that are easier to open. Sustainability is a driving force among many food and beverage producers, providing food that suits the consumer's evolving values around sustainability. Consumers expect F & B products to be natural, healthy and tasty at the same time. Consumers also expect packaging to reflect their changing lifestyles.  Smaller, individual on-the-go formats are better suited to the lifestyles of today’s more mobile generation, while larger multi-pack formats are ideal for the separate habits of today’s bigger families.

Packaging material that is suitable for storing food and drinks is referred to as “food grade packaging”. Packaging receives this designation when it is made out of material that does not adversely alter or contaminate food. As such, food grade packaging must be devoid of toxic chemicals and serve as an effective barrier from air and moisture to prevent premature food spoilage.
