“Advances that will be stimulated by an expanding population base, rising disposable personal income levels, smaller household sizes, heightened demand for more convenient levels, and trends toward value-added packaging that produces freshness protection and increased convenience.” That’s according to “Food Containers: Rigid & Flexible,” a new study from The Freedonia Group, Inc.
