Packaging trends that dominated in 2018: Page 9 of 11

3. 3 top packaging issues emerge in 2018

Unfair advantage? Posted on Feb. 6, this article has had 11 months to gather page views. But I think not. Other articles in this “2018 Top Trends” list were published much later and had better readership.

What made this article resonate was the importance of the top three packaging focus areas for the new year—food packaging developments, sustainability and packaging design—as proved by our website metrics in January, which determined the top five articles of the month/year:

1. 5 packaging design trends on the way out in 2018

2. 8 sustainable packaging hits of 2017

3. Nature’s Path packaging takes a bold new direction

4. Proposition 65 and food packaging: A preview of coming changes

5. Pouch filling operation sets new standard in quality, efficiency [This article also appeared in the year-end list “A trio of packaging production tales that end happily in 2018”]
