The Whole Package

From aesthetics to functionality, packaging can play a critical role in a product's success or failure. Add the increasing demand for eco-friendliness, and food and beverage manufacturers may find themselves spending as much time and energy on what's outside a product as what's in it. U.S. demand for converted flexible packaging is expected to reach $20.7 billion in 2019, representing an increased transition from rigid to flexible packaging. Single-serve, resealable and sustainable packaging options are also making strides.
