Packaging innovation in the marketplace
Innovations in food packaging surround us,
but we tend to see them as new products only. Consumers want convenience
and great taste, and processors have responded with products like salads
ready to eat, tuna steaks in flexible pouches, nutritional beverages in
plastic bottles, and yes, even moist dog food in a shelf stable plastic
serving tray (Beneful). These products would not be possible without the
age of plastic packaging offering new marketing opportunities.
Kicking off the IFT Year is a look at packaging as the driver of product innovation. Two companies, one a manufacturer of plastic packaging and one the leading processor of crabmeat, will share their perspectives on the role of packaging in the marketplace. The third speaker will present her research on modified atmosphere packaging of salads.
