Packaging design (the packaging for your product) and package graphics (the graphics/content on your product packaging) play an important role in your company’s brand identity and can often be the difference between a business succeeding or failing.
Choice of food packaging can make or break supply chains and profit margins. Customers depend on food packaging to clearly communicate its contents when making their selection and to protect the food inside.
Smart packaging is becoming increasingly popular with businesses of all sizes. From food and beverages to high-end electronics, companies are using this innovative technology to instill confidence in consumers and keep track of their products.
Food waste which occurs at agricultural level or during processing such as when rotten produce or peels are discarded is largely unavoidable. However, food waste which happens due to human action can be reduced greatly with the help of smart packaging. Here’s how:
The US produces roughly 254 million tons of trash annually, with food waste accounting for over one fifth of that total at 63 million tons. This indicates that if restaurants and other foodservice businesses were able to work toward reducing food waste, it would have a significant impact.
Restaurateurs can help combat food waste and nationwide hunger by having their kitchen go green: donating usable food to those in need, recycling and composting food waste that doesn’t need to go to landfills, and taking a deeper look at their equipment and even their customers.
