Five sustainable food and beverage packaging trends 2017-02-04 08:40 From new designs, material innovations to sustainable production methods, the food and beverage machinery packaging market has been attracting industry attention. Here we summarize a few obvious trends and see if they will appear in stores in the next 12 months. 1. Material replacement High-end food and beverage companies and alcoholic beverage brands continue to choose plastic instead of glass for various reasons. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles have a series of benefits. For example, a 750ml glass bottle weighs about 400g, while a 750ml PET bottle weighs only about one-eighth of the former, which is 54g. From the perspective of transportation, its lighter weight makes PET bottles easier and more environmentally friendly during transportation. In addition, their ruggedness also allows them to be transported more safely. In the coming year, we look forward to seeing more beverage companies move further away from glass bottles and towards plastic bottles. 2. Unusual container choices. Many beverage brands will try to use innovative materials for their bottles and packaging, and we can even see some trends emerging. One of those trying to behave differently is stillhouse, a whisky manufacturer, which chose metal packaging for its own spirits brand. Stillhouse claims that the 100% stainless steel packaging they use in their products is the industry's first. The choice of metal materials can be traced back to the Prohibition Period. Under their leadership, other spirits brands have begun to follow suit! Stillhouse will be exhibited at the 2016 New York International Packaging Exhibition (EastPack), and at the same time we may see more innovative packaging designs. 3. Zero waste solution Environmentally friendly packaging is no longer a new concept, but it is still a growing trend. Companies and consumers are more aware of innovative recycling methods and the benefits of implementing them. In addition, major alcohol brands such as Carlsberg actively support innovative research on biodegradable beverage bottles to stay advanced. Its continued cooperation with EcoXpak will make key progress in the use of zero-waste materials, because the company's goal is to create 100% biodegradable beverage bottles using green fibers. 4. Vertical soft bags Vertical soft bags will continue to be popular in the next 12 months. Brands love this type of packaging because they can print vivid and clear design patterns and give packaging designers real freedom of innovation. Moreover, the vertical soft bag provides a greater possibility for brands to differentiate themselves from competitors and stand out on the shelf. Vertical soft bags are lighter than metal cans or plastic bottles, and empty bags can be flattened for transportation and storage, so they only take up a small part of the truck's space, which means they have the lowest environmental carbon footprint. By 2018, this type of packaging market is expected to reach 37.3 billion U.S. dollars. 5. Retro packaging design When it comes to design trends, we look forward to a journey back in time in the next few months, from the gorgeous old fashions such as the rum brand DonPapa to the retro design that has recently made a stir in the food industry For example, DrFeelgood’s popsicle packaging uses limited color tones and a traditional flat-printed appearance. We look forward to seeing more of these designs in the food and beverage industry in the next 12 months, and because some brands expect to create a sense of nostalgia, this ancient packaging design trend has already emerged in the wine industry.
