Food Packaging Industry Trends

Clean and clear labelContact USing

Today, consumers prefer their food and beverage packaging labels to be clear and concise. Consumers while purchasing, don’t want packaging to be overloaded with taglines but only important information such as nutritional value, ingredients, safety, and function. Clear and concise messages help them to trust the brand easily. Therefore, food packaging companies must pay attention to these details and must follow this trend.

Personalization

Personalization has always been a successful marketing strategy in almost all the industries and the same goes for the food industry as well. Food packaging companies should try to engage with customers on a more personal level and should give them a personalized experienced. It is truly evident from the fact that the personalized campaign run by Coke or Samsung has contributed to their popularity immensely.

Packaging mobilization

Today, mobile-based packaging is on the rise. Now that the majority of consumers are smartphone users, brands are exploring near field communication (NFC) and Bluetooth to engage with consumers. This technology works by sending signals over a short distance and helps boost customer retention.
