Survey Reveals Most Impactful Food Packaging Over Last Quarter Century

A survey conducted online by DuPont recently revealed that microwavable plastic trays and reclosable packaging were considered the top packaging breakthroughs over the past 25 years, packaging innovations which had the most powerful impact on peoples' lives. Industry professionals participated in the online survey, which was available from April 9 through May 10 of this year. Stand-up pouches, food storage bags offering zipper locks and other reclosable packaging received the most votes, at 28%. The next most popular packaging innovations included microwaveable meals, and packaging materials that allowed consumers to go straight from package to oven in meal preparation. 18% of the votes in the survey were dedicated to recycled content which support social and environmental goals including packaging used in consumer, industrial, and community programs. Sponsor of the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers, manufactures sealant resins, adhesives, peelable lids and much more in the way of packaging of foods, medical goods, cosmetics and other consumer goods. According to an article at Food & Beverage Packaging, the company has a development team that is globally networked and focused on packaging to enhance shelf appeal, reduce costs, add convenience, and to protect the product and environment. At Markem-Imaje we realize that packaging is constantly changing in an effort by companies to make their products not only more appealing to the consumer, but more convenient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. For that reason, it's important that manufacturers have the coding and marking systems that perform best on the substrates involved in their manufacturing processes.
