This article explains why manufacturers should embrace the Millennials (Generation Y) as a key market opportunity. By Frank Bühler, product manager, Bosch Packaging Technology
Various consumer categories exist: children, elderly, men, women… with the growing ageing population especially today, food and beverage manufacturers would do well to cater products specially for them. By Sheila Heath, director, Crown Closures North America
Innovia Films has expanded its portfolio of peelable Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) films, the Propafilm RCP, which is now available in 52 and 60 microns. The food packaging film range now includes heavy duty, high barrier and snap wrap options as well.
With an easy-to-open seal, the film can be used by consumers of all ages as no excessive force, scissors or sharp implements are required.
Despite being easy to open, the film largely reduces product spillage that often comes with tearing of packages in traditional films. Resealing is therefore now an option when a label is applied.
The new Ecolean Air Aseptic 125 ml provides manufacturers with the following properties: ease of use, shelf differentiation, and minimal impact on the environment. Being aseptic, the packaging overcomes the limitations of refrigerated distribution.
Despite being lightweight and thin, the multilayer structure protects the content with extended light and oxygen barriers.
In line with the Air Aseptic range, this lightweight packaging with its unique and eye-catching shape suits it for the display of products such as white milk, flavoured milk, drinking yoghurts, juice drinks, nectars, ice tea, etc.
Available now in 125 ml, consumers now can carry their favourite beverages around and consume them on-the-go.
Consumers’ lives are becoming more fast-paced, increasing the demand for convenient meals and snacks. Amidst the strong competition in asia, how can food manufacturers provide added benefits that will enhance consumers’ on-the-go lives, rather than just meeting their basic needs?
