Supermarket Perimeter - April 2020 - 30

Deli: Packaging

RETHINK PLASTIC
Challenging manufacturers to streamline packaging, empowering consumers
on how to feel confident about how
they dispose of recycled items, this also
creates incentives to bring your own
service ware (reverse vending opportunities). Sustainability extends to the entire
product lifecycle - sustainable sourcing,
production, distribution, consumption
and finally disposal of products

CONSUMER CONCERNS
* Does the package protect the product?
* Is the design of the package
cost-effective?
* Does it meet or exceed FDA
regulatory compliances?
* Does the package optimize materials
and energy?
* Are the materials healthy for people
and the environment?
* Where will the package go after its use?

Packaging offers Crisp Food Technologies containers. The unique, patented, convection crossflow design relieves moisture and condensation
while maintaining food temperature. Through-the-closure ventilation
and raised airflow channels in the bottom of the container combine
with venting in the lid to ensure fried foods remain crisp.
To keep food looking fresh on display for grab-in-go instore, there's
Anchor Packaging's new Fry Baby hinged 6- x 3-inch container sized for
French fries, chicken strips, nuggets and wings. The container integrates
anti-fog in both the clear base and lid for additional value to avoid order
errors for less than the cost of a coated paperboard box. Stapleton cautions packaging chosen for fried foods such as chicken pieces, fries and
egg rolls must be able to withstand the typical 30-minute delivery time
without arriving cold and soggy.

CONSUMER BEHAVIOR
Conscious consumers look for ecofriendly packaging and products and seek
guidance on how to make their diets
more sustainable.
* 90% of grab-and-go trips and dollars
are from bulk deli buyers
* 60% of bulk buyers are also shopping
grab-and-go

The increasing use of apps, convenient grab-and-go options and the
ability to order just about anything online, means many of the same
prepared food packages will continue to perform well for delivery,
according to Stapleton. Among shoppers (Millennials (58%), Gen X (43%)
and Boomers (38%), the growing appeal of these options demonstrates
more willingness to incorporate a restaurant-prepared main dish, side
or dessert into home-prepared meals compared with two years ago,
according to IDDBA's "What's In Store 2020," report.
Seventy-seven percent of those surveyed in the report cited having prepared foods in the instore deli as extremely/very important. US
Hispanic shoppers topped the list of consumers bringing home grocery
prepared foods at 76%, followed by Asian Americans (70%), African
Americans (69%) and White/Caucasian shoppers (59%).

Anchor Packaging
relies on clear food
visibility to drive
impulse sales of deli
prepared foods.

A growing number of companies are also looking to produce packaging in compliance with increasingly strict state bans on polystyrene packaging and foam containers. Cities such as Berkeley, Calif.,
are passing sweeping bans to remove all single-use plastics while
other US municipalities are switching to plant-based compostables.
Depending on the source quoted, there remains some debate whether
compostable foodservice ware made of natural materials such as
sugarcane, bamboo and corn decompose as expected. If materials do
not decompose in compost bins, they must be processed at industrial
facilities.
All Anchor Packaging products are consumer reusable and recyclable. Whenever possible, the polypropylene containers also consist of
40% less petroleum-based resins to preserve natural resources. In addition, all PETE hinged containers, bases and lids are manufactured with a
minimum of 10% post-consumer recycled content.
Radigan predicts the industry will see more technology-enabled
solutions for the food packaging arena with greater implementation of
smart packaging, Internet of Things and blockchain as consumers continue to demand more transparency from companies and look to obtain
more product information beyond the label.
"Our role as retailers, distributors and manufacturers is to preserve
food quality and consumer experience while reducing the use of natural resources, reusing materials and recycling with consideration of
performance and price for our businesses," Stapleton said.
