5 Latest Trends in Food Packaging 2020
In order to show everything that their product is capable of doing, a lot of food packaging brands tend to overstuff the packaging with text and visuals. While doing this we don’t realize that the customers generally don’t have much time to spare. They’d most probably throw just a single glance at your product and move forward. So, to best grab their attention, you need a minimalist approach. On the face of the product, you just need to highlight its name along with defining quality, leaving the other properties at the back. Follow that up with a minimal yet catchy design, and you’d have a better chance of getting the customer’s attention.
Surveys from all around the world show that the consumers (particularly the millennials among them) care about the environment. Even if your product isn’t particularly sustainable, you can still reach out to the customer base by opting for eco-friendly packaging. Just make sure that you mention the same at the back of your product description.
Consumers nowadays have a very ‘on-the-go’ lifestyle. They’d prefer that the product is handy enough to fit-in with their lifestyle. So, ask yourself,is your food packaging handy enough? Is it easy to hold and carry even with the packaging? If it is, then you would surely be benefitted from it.
You can think of transparency in two ways. First, if you let the consumer see through the package what it is that they are getting, then that’d would have a positive impact (provided that your product has a good aesthetic impression). The second type of transparency is fulfilling the consumer’s expectations i.e. making the product look as good as it is in its picture on the package. This would not only increase your chances of getting a recurring customer, it’d also make your product more Instagram friendly.
5. Unique brand Image
Having a singular brand image is important for the longevity of your food packaging business. Most of the brands have loads of competitors nowadays. So, rather than copying them, focus on what makes you different. Having a brand story and putting it on your food packaging is important. The story should have a philanthropic side to it, and it should be something around which you can easily run a successful social media campaign.
