Take a visual tour of 8 packaging innovation “goodies” from Pack Expo that include a new TE trayed meal debuting at 7-Eleven, a small snack pack that folds out for serving, 3-D printed and mated jars that screw apart, a bottle so slippery that it seems to defy physics and a dosing flexpack that accurately meters product. You can also see a MAP-thermoform-packed bread with a 40 day shelf life and get the “skin-ny” on a new optimized vacuum tray along with a link to four more notable innovations also found at the exhibition.
If I may repurpose the insightful words of Forrest Gump, visiting booths at Pack Expo is like opening a box of chocolates, only better: There are surprises even when you think you know what you’re going to get. These 8 examples of package prototypes and commercial launches were all unexpected bonuses found as I walked the aisles of the North, South and East Halls the week of November 2.
