The eight drivers of today’s packaging trends
There are eight global drivers guiding the trends in today’s packaging that brand owners need to know in order to develop actionable insights for packaging. When looking at opportunities for new products and packaging, brand owners tend to speak of “trends.” But what’s behind those trends?
Beech-Nut becomes a disruptive force in baby food
Totally reformulating its products and packaging, Beech-Nut launches a 100% natural baby food in custom glass jars that let the fresh product recipes speak for themselves. Millennial moms shopping the baby food aisle have recently been met with a new vision: Shelves stacked with premium, honeypot-shaped, clear glass jars displaying the vibrant, rich colors of 100% natural fruit and vegetable purees.
Special IML technique for two-chamber cup
Packaging plays a key role in the new Monte desserts from Germany’s Zott GmbH. The flavor stays fresh thanks to the innovative two-cup chamber system with folding seam that keeps the unique Monte cream—a combination of creamy milk, chocolate, and hazelnuts—separate from the fruit and other crispy ingredients until they are mixed just before eating.
Flowcontrol bottle for motor oil
A custom 5-L oil container for leading UK producer Millers Oils features a unique dispensing closure that allows the oil to be fully controllable and to flow freely and easily. RPC Containers-Halstead is the supplier of the innovative closure, which has been jointly designed by RPC and Millers Oils from an original concept devised by Millers to solve a long-standing problem in the market.
Coffee pod recycling in the U.S.: How likely?
A LinkedIn discussion around the likelihood of consumers bringing used coffee pods into a collection center, if given the opportunity, raises a range of issues. An article from Packaging World posted on the IoPP LinkedIn group regarding Nespresso Austria’s use of a recyclable, compostable bag for collection of its recyclable coffee capsules stirred up some strong responses, when readers were asked, “How willing would U.S. consumers be to bringing coffee capsules to a collection center for recycling?”
