New report details key trends in U.S. food packaging

Article-New report details key trends in U.S. food packaging

At the start of the recession, some food manufacturers increased unit prices by reducing pack sizes rather than by increasing the price on the shelf. This helped them boost increasingly stressed margins without turning too many consumers off. As the economy has begun to bounce back, some manufacturers have retained the smaller pack sizes, pointing to a lack of negative consumer reaction to such practices. While impacting nearly every category, such changes have been most common in impulse.

The Food Packaging in report offers insight into key trends and developments driving packaging of all major types of food products: dairy; sauces, dressings and condiments; canned/preserved food; impulse foods; chilled and frozen food; baby food. The report also examines trends and prospect for various pack types and closures: metal packaging, rigid plastic, glass, liquid cartons, paper-based containers; flexible packaging.
