At the 2015 Global Pouch West conference speakers explored how consumers are driving new packaging that meets their changing needs. For instance, M&M’s candy for many years was packaged in a flexible plastic bag. But now M&Ms are showing up in resealable pouches. Why the need to change, since the old packaging was already light and easy to handle?
Stand-up pouches provide a couple of essential attributes: They are resealable, so your M&M’s don’t spill out once they are opened, and they display better on the shelf and don’t slide off.
Plastic pouches are continuing to take share away from other packaging materials:
● Instead of glass jars, you can find baby food, condiments, sauces and dairy foods in pouches
● Instead of paperboard, you can find cereal, crackers, frozen foods and candy in pouches
● Instead of metal cans, you can find soups and vegetables in pouches
Where do pouches go from here? Packaging Strategies is committed to bringing up the most up-to-date intelligence about the global pouch market. Watch this space for an announcement of the dates for the 2016 Global Pouch West event.
