PACKAGING

Resealable on-the-go
packaging can combat
food waste.

PORTABLE
SUCCESS
by Ryan Atkinson

WITH CONSUMERS AND
RETAILERS looking for ways to
make on-the-go easier, portable
packaging fills a big need.
"Out society is now built
around an 'on-the-go' lifestyle.
Between work, family and personal interests, consumers are
constantly on the move," says
Cindy Blish, associated brand
and communications manager
for Shelton, Connecticut-based
Inline Plastics. "This means the
demand for food options that are
convenient, healthy and portable
continues to increase."
That convenient, portable
packaging makes life easier for
time-starved, active and nutrition-conscious consumers by
offering safe food options with
portion control and food waste
reduction in mind.
No matter what the day might
bring, convenience packaging
makes quick meals and snacks
easy and accessible. The need for
convenient options across multiple dayparts continues to grow
as consumers seek consumption

hacks to combat work demands
and increasing commitments. But
catching the attention of busy
consumers might be the most
difficult part. Standing out from
the crowd requires packaging
with a range of easy-to-use attributes and branding and graphics
that improve the messaging.
"Single-serve and portable
packaging meets this demand,"
Blish says. "It allows consumers
to purchase only what they need,
including healthier options like
fresh-cut fruits and veggies, and
they cleanly and easily eat from
and then dispose of the container
when finished."
The desire for packaged
convenience is not just a US
phenomenon. Demand for convenience products is increasing
around the world.
In 2017, the business of snacking grew a phenomenal $3.4
billion globally. In the snacking
arena, convenient protein options
remain in high demand. Fiftyfive percent of US households
cite high protein as an important

attribute with meat, eggs and
dairy being the primary sources, according to Nielsen. In the
ready-to-eat protein segment the
emphasis is on snack meats, but
packaging isn't just about a quick
bite. It also must meet needs for
portability, portion control, food
safety and address the ongoing

problem of food waste.
"The throwaway culture of
today will evolve into one that
understands and embraces the
role of packaging as a primary
means to reduce global food
and product waste," says David
Luttenburger, global packaging
director, Mintel, Chicago.

Our society is now
built around an 'on-thego' lifestyle. Between
work, family and personal
interests, consumers are
constantly on the move."

Portable packaging allows
consumers to purchase
only what they need.
