Discover consumer trend drivers
and how packaging enablers can unlock growth

You’ve read the latest reports on consumer trends. You’ve run consumer focus groups. Now what? How do you take that information and enable the shelf appeal and brand differentiation that your business needs?

Behind every great package is a consumer trend that’s driving it. See a sneak peek into 2018’s consumer trends below and the full line-up at booth S-3705.

Less is more

Clean labels

Today’s shoppers trust brands when messaging and claims are clear and easy to understand. When too much information is on a package, consumers may feel uneasy about the product inside.
Consumers want a frustration-free shopping trip without being overwhelmed with information and claims.

Freshness thru & thru

Cues across the store

Shopping traffic habits are shifting from the center of the store to the perimeter. Only 34% of consumers aged 18-34 shop for center store foods, compared to 62% of those aged 55 and older. Younger shoppers are more interested in the fresh and chilled aisles, compared to the processed and frozen food options found in the center aisles.
Yet, shelf-stable foods are more likely than chilled or fresh foods to provide the perception of convenient and time-saving. Packaging can enable these drivers to make shopping the center of the store more appealing to today’s younger shoppers.

“Sustainability Goals: The benefits of flexible packaging can make a positive impact”

When it comes to packaging, sustainability can be measured in multiple, meaningful ways. While consumers may be focused on recyclability and post-consumer recycled content, manufacturers face a bigger picture that includes:

  • product sustainability
  • food safety
  • source reduction
  • light weighting
  • and more
All of these factors impact how retailers view a brand’s reportable sustainability metrics, creating demand for CPGs to better understand the total impact of their packaging.
