Consumers across the globe are putting increasing focus on climate change. In the U.S., a survey conducted by Pew Research Center from Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2023, found that 52% of Americans say large businesses and corporations should do more to reduce the effects of climate change.
One of the ways companies can do this is through adopting sustainable packaging. Sustainable packaging reduces a company’s carbon footprint to help minimize the effects of climate change. It also helps brands to expand their customer base. Eco-conscious customers want to interact with and purchase from companies that work toward sustainability goals.
Here’s are a few of the latest sustainable packaging innovations and milestones making headlines:

Coca-Cola recently unveiled its plastic-free LitePac Top Strap in Austria. Designed to hold a six-pack of 1.5-liter Coca-Cola bottles, the LitePac Top Strap is made from a sturdy, tear-resistant, recyclable fiberboard material. This saves 200 tons of plastic annually while reducing energy consumption and production.
In late January, Coca-Cola also announced a new trial in the United Kingdom to remove the labels from its Sprite and Sprite Zero bottles. Although the existing labels are recyclable, removing them will cut down the amount of packaging material used and remove the need to separate packaging components before recycling the bottle.
Nestlé’s Maggi brand recently launched a new line of instant cup noodles. This line is designed to be prepared at home in a mug – consumers can pour the product into a standard mug and add boiling water for instant preparation. This cuts down on plastic packaging by 83% compared to a traditional plastic cup.
Near the end of 2023, Kellanova announced it had reduced the amount of plastic used in the packaging of three snack brands – Cheez-It Snap’d, Cheez-It Puff’d and Club Crisps – compared to the same volume the previous year. The optimized packaging designs reduced the total material weight for the three products by 672,000 pounds (124,000 pounds of plastic and 548,000 pounds of cardboard used for shipping cases annually).
Our recyclable EEASY Lid is another sustainable packaging option helping companies to meet their sustainability goals. The world’s first aluminum lug jar lid, the EEASY Lid is more sustainable than traditional steel lids, but still just as durable.
The EEASY Lid is currently sold on Guglielmo’s pasta sauce in over 250 grocers and is available in EDEKA Kempken stores in Germany. CCT’s partnership with Chilau foods will soon bring the EEASY Lid to roughly 700 new stores.

The EEASY Lid made its debut in the Western United States recently at the KeHE Summer Show in Salt Lake City, Utah. CCT partner Chilau Foods exhibited its line of southern-inspired stew bases topped with the EEASY Lid at the show held February 7-8 at the Salt Palace Convention Center.
KeHE Distributors, a distributor of natural and organic, specialty, and fresh products in North America, hosts this invite only Summer Show that gives new brands access to exclusive connections and partnerships that expand the reach of their products. New to the show this year was an Innovation Pavilion, which showcased the 2024 On Trend Award winners – sixteen brands expected to lead upcoming food industry trends.
Chilau Foods was the On Trend Award winner in the “For the Pantry” category. KeHE’s category management team selected award winners based on criteria including innovation, ingredients, taste, packaging, and salability.
Chilau Foods products and the EEASY Lid received a lot of interest at the show. Many buyers from independent and chain retail stores visiting the Chilau booth indicated they saw media coverage on Chilau’s products and the EEASY Lid and were eager to sample the stew bases and see the EEASY Lid in action.
Designed to allow consumers to vent a vacuum-sealed jar by simply pressing a button on the lid, the EEASY Lid reduces the amount of torque needed to twist off the lid by up to 50%. With the EEASY Lid, brands can provide an unprecedented level of accessibility to their jarred food products, offering a better overall consumer experience. The EEASY Lid also allows brands to level up their sustainability. The world’s first aluminum lug jar lid, the EEASY Lid is more sustainable than traditional steel lids, but just as durable.
Chilau is currently switching to the EEASY Lid for all its products, providing its customers with a new level of accessibility. The EEASY Lid will soon be available on all Chilau products across 700 stores.
CCT was excited to attend the KeHE Summer Show for the first time alongside Chilau. CCT president Brandon Bach noted that the show provided an opportunity to demonstrate the value of the sustainable, accessible, and innovative EEASY Lid and opened doors to establishing relationships with potential new partners.
In the 21st century, many inventions are making our day-to-day lives easier. Virtual assistants, smartphones, electric cars, electronic readers, streaming media, and smart appliances are just a few examples of the innovations transforming the way we live.
These technological advances make many aspects of life easier and more convenient, yet people are still struggling to open stubborn jar lids. A look at some headlines over the last few years highlight just how pervasive this problem is and provide a snapshot of the hacks and tools people are using to open jarred products:
– Senior shoppers say this $19 jar opener is ‘like having a strong person in the house’
– The Unexpected Bar Tool That Will Help You Open the Toughest Jars
– 6 Hacks for Opening That Jar When You’re About Ready to Give Up
– Use Half a Tennis Ball as a Tool to Remove Stubborn Lids
– Never Struggle to Open a Jar Again with One Easy Bottle Opener Hack
– Hack to get stuck lid off a jar in seconds — with just a spoon — goes viral
– Open a Stuck Jar with a Knife
In this day and age, it is astounding that the frustration of opening stubborn jar lids continues to plague consumers. There is a solution – one that does not require specialized tools or dangerous jar opening hacks.
The EEASY Lid.
The first jar lid innovation in more than 75 years, the EEASY Lid works by simply pressing a button on the lid, which vents the vacuum seal and allows consumers to easily unscrew the lid. The EEASY Lid reduces the amount of torque needed to twist off a jar lid by up to 50%, leaving nothing standing in the way of consumers and their jarred foods of choice.
The EEASY Lid is a smart packaging choice for brands. It not only helps brands improve the consumer experience but increases market share as an accessible, sustainable packaging solution. That’s because the EEASY Lid makes opening jars easy for people of all ages and abilities and is made of recyclable aluminum.
It’s time for brands to leave behind the hard-to-open jar lids of the 20th century. The EEASY Lid is the 21st century packaging solution that eliminates jar opening tools and hacks, making life easier and more convenient for consumers.
CCT kicked off the new year by heading to Las Vegas to exhibit at the Winter Fancy Food Show. Organized by the Specialty Food Association (SFA) and held January 21-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Winter Fancy Food Show is the industry’s first big show of the year.
More than 1,100 companies exhibited at this year’s show, which drew 12,000 attendees. The show helps pre-qualified buyers in the food and beverage channel discover innovative new products and packaging. According to SFA, 88% of Winter Fancy Food Show attendees are involved in purchasing decisions.
The large number of exhibitors and significant foot traffic at the show reflected a growing specialty food market. SFA estimates sales reached $207 billion in 2023.
CCT was present at the show to showcase the EEASY Lid, the world’s first aluminum lug lid, designed to help brands bring an unprecedented level of accessibility to their jarred food products. The Winter Fancy Food Show was a perfect platform for CCT to continue to build on last year’s strong wave of momentum, which included:
– Guglielmo’s Sauce becoming the first food brand to adopt the EEASY Lid, bringing it to 250 stores in the Northeast United States
– EDEKA Kempken introducing the EEASY Lid to European customers for the first time
– CCT partnering with Chilau Foods to top Chilau’s line of southern inspired stew-bases with the EEASY Lid, a move that will bring the EEASY Lid to approximately 700 stores across 12 states
– The EEASY Lid earning honorable mention in Fast Company’s prestigious 2023 Innovation by Design Awards
Exhibiting in the show’s New Product Showcase that featured the latest and greatest products, CCT’s booth drew interest from many leading buyers and retailers. As these attendees dropped by the booth to see the latest innovation in accessible, sustainable packaging, the CCT team capitalized on the opportunity to network, build new business relationships, and strengthen existing relationships.
The team is currently in talks with major grocers, brands and manufacturers across the globe, looking to expand EEASY Lid availability into additional stores this year.
As the consumption of goods grows, so does the market for jar lids, caps and closures that are essential to maintaining the safety and integrity of products. In 2023, the global caps and closures market size was estimated at $74.64 billion. It is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.9% from 2024 to 2030.

As the market for closure systems continues to grow, evolving trends including sustainability, convenience, innovation, and cost are shaping the design of these systems.
Increasing consumer preferences for eco-friendly packaging coupled with evolving government sustainability regulations are fueling the design of jar lids, caps and closures that are recyclable. More brand owners are shifting to aluminum closure systems that are easily recyclable, reduce waste going into landfills and help brands deliver on their circular economy goals.
Convenience and accessibility
Consumers today prefer products that are user-friendly and convenient to use. Brands are responding by seeking out closures that enhance product accessibility and usability. As a result, closure systems are being designed so that they are more ergonomic, easy to open and close and more intuitive to use. These design developments are good news for brands that want to eliminate frustrations with packaging and give consumers even more reasons to keep purchasing their products.
Innovation in closure systems is becoming a key point of differentiation for brand owners. Unique closure systems that combine reliable product protection, ease-of-use and innovative technology are helping brands stand out from the competition. Additionally, innovative closure systems that work to reduce the barrier between the product and the consumer communicate real value to customers, which in turn, boosts sales.
According to Packaging Gateway, “closure manufacturers are adopting innovative production processes that can reduce waste, manufacturing costs and the amount of material used. Such processes can also help in increasing efficiency and ensuring process stability and product consistency.”
Our EEASY Lid checks all the boxes on these trends, helping brands comply with evolving packaging regulations, deliver a product experience that caters to consumer preferences and needs, stand out from the competition and reduce costs:
Sustainable – Made of recyclable aluminum, the EEASY Lid helps brand owners deliver on sustainable packaging commitments and achieve circularity targets.
Convenient and accessible – Designed for convenience, the EEASY Lid enhances consumer experience and accessibility by making jarred products up to 50% easier to open, eliminating the struggle of opening stubborn jar lids for people of all ages and abilities.
Innovative – The first jar lid innovation in over 75 years, the EEASY Lid is an accessible packaging innovation designed to address the massive inclusivity and accessibility problem that exists in packaging design today.
Cost effective – Made of durable, lightweight aluminum, the EEASY Lid is 57% lighter than traditional steel lids. This can help brands reduce product transportation and shipping costs.
Environmental protection laws and regulations continue to evolve, increasing the complexity of complying with a vast landscape of mandates across the globe. To successfully navigate that complexity, it is now imperative for brands to elevate the sustainability of their products and packaging and transparently communicate their sustainability story.
One of the recent developments on this front is the European Union’s (EU) proposed “Green Claims Directive.” Under this directive, indistinct business claims like eco-friendly, better for the planet, climate-friendly, and carbon neutral will disappear in the EU. The proposed EU Green Claims Directive seeks to protect consumers and the environment by addressing greenwashing (the practice of making a product appear to be more environmentally friendly or less environmentally damaging than it really is).
The Green Claims Directive sets out new requirements for ensuring environmental labels and claims are credible and trustworthy to allow consumers to make better informed purchasing decisions. Research by the European Commission revealed that there is a lot of consumer confusion and distrust surrounding product sustainability claims. That’s not surprising considering that this research found 230 sustainability labels in the EU with vastly different levels of transparency. According to this study, over half of these claims (53%) give vague, misleading, or unfounded information, and 40% of them have no supporting evidence.

If approved by the European Parliament and the European Council, the Green Claims Directive will require companies to substantiate green claims with scientific data and independent third-party verification. The Directive will apply to all voluntary business claims about the environmental impacts, aspects or performance of a product, service, or the business itself.
It’s not only EU companies that will have to meet the requirements of the Directive. The Directive also extends to companies outside the EU that target EU consumers, including businesses selling into the EU via e-commerce.
With environmental and sustainability laws continuing to evolve, increasing the complexity of the regulatory landscape, brands need to reevaluate packaging through the lens of compliance and transparency.
Compliance and transparency are easy when packaging is recyclable.
CCT’s recyclable aluminum EEASY Lid is a simple way for brands to futureproof their products, advance the circular economy and comply with evolving sustainability laws and regulations across the globe.
There is a lot of regulatory complexity in the world today, and navigating this complexity isn’t getting any easier.
Today, sustainable, compliant and EEASY make good business sense.
Consumers today are demanding more transparency from food brands. They want to know more about the ingredients, sourcing, nutritional information, manufacturing process, and sustainability of the products they buy.
Brands that provide a high level of transparency are rewarded by consumers with their trust and loyalty. This translates to more profitable relationships with customers and business growth.
Consumer expectations for brand transparency are rising. A Transparency Trends 2023 report by FMI – The Food Industry Association and NielsenIQ (NIQ) found that shoppers have prioritized product transparency at an increased rate over the last five years. Report data revealed that the proportion of grocery shoppers saying transparency is important increased seven percentage points from 2018 (69%) to 2023 (76%).
In a news release on the report, Sherry Frey, VP of Total Wellness for NIQ said: “As retail trading partners plan strategies for growth in 2024 and beyond, it is critical to understand the key consumer drivers and nuances of their purchasing behavior to achieve growth in the face of lingering high cost-of-living pressures. Simply put, the more product information retailers and brands can provide, the better.”
Research shows that more transparent brands have a competitive advantage. According to NIQ data, two-thirds of shoppers (64%) say they would switch from a brand they usually buy to another brand that provides more in-depth product information, beyond nutrition facts.
To be truly transparent, companies must go beyond nutrition facts, providing clear information on almost every facet of a product including sustainability. Shoppers today are prioritizing sustainability, seeking information on the environmental impact of products, and spending their money with brands that promote a healthier environment.
Packaging that transparently and honestly conveys a product’s environmental impact will attract the growing number of conscious consumers who are increasingly purchasing products they believe make a positive social, environmental or economic impact.
Packaging innovations like the EEASY Lid are helping brands transparently tell a strong sustainability story that resonates with today’s consumers. Made of recyclable aluminum, the EEASY Lid helps brands reduce their impact on the environment, cultivate trust and loyalty with consumers and differentiate their products in a competitive market.
Brands that want to transparently and easily communicate packaging sustainability that earns consumer trust, drives loyalty and business growth need the EEASY Lid.
We can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye to 2023 and hello to 2024. As we enter the new year, it’s important to reflect on the accomplishments of 2023.
One of CCT’s proudest moments was the EEASY Lid earning honorable mention in Fast Company’s 2023 Innovation by Design Awards! This validated CCT’s mission and proved that the innovative EEASY Lid can improve the lives of consumers across the globe.
2023 also led CCT to expand its partnerships. Guglielmo’s Sauce became the first food brand to adopt the EEASY Lid, and we saw the lid hit shelves across more than 250 stores across the Northeast.
Shortly after, CCT partnered with EDEKA Kempken, introducing the EEASY Lid to European customers for the first time.
CCT closed 2023 by partnering with Chilau Foods, a line of southern inspired stew-bases. With this new partnership, the EEASY Lid will be available on products in roughly 700 stores across 12 states by early 2024.
As we enter a new year, many use this time to set goals and resolutions for themselves.
Sustainable packaging solutions will continue rising in popularity as we head into 2024. The global zero-waste packaging market size in 2023 was estimated at over $1 billion and is projected to reach nearly $2.5 billion by the end of 2033. Additionally, more regulations will come to fruition that prevent companies from greenwashing but require them to use actual sustainable products.
The need for accessible products will also come more into focus. In the United States, up to 26% – that’s one in four adults – have some type of disability. This doesn’t even count the number of people with reduced mobility and strength due to aging or other ailments.
With this in mind, CCT’s goal for 2024 remains the same as years past: to continue building on our progress to help brands deliver on sustainability, make packaging more inclusive and accessible, and increase our market to make hard-to-open jars a thing of the past.
And we’re hard at work – CCT is currently in talks with grocers, brands and manufacturers across the globe, looking to expand EEASY Lid availability into additional stores next year.
We are excited for another year of partnership meetings, insightful tradeshows, and milestone moments for the EEASY Lid. Bring on 2024!
This year was a banner year for CCT and the EEASY Lid. From new brands in the U.S. topping their products with the EEASY Lid to the first European brand adopting the EEASY Lid to Fast Company’s recognition of the EEASY Lid in its 2023 Innovation by Design Awards, there were so many great milestones and highlights.
As 2023 comes to a close, let’s take a trip down memory lane to look back on some memorable media coverage of these milestones and more.

We are looking forward to an even better 2024 filled with lots of news and updates as we help more and more brands make their packaging more accessible and sustainable.
The global food packaging market value is forecast to rise from $353.7 billion in 2023 to $592.8 billion by 2033, according to Future Market Insights. The growth in the food packaging market is being fueled by transformative trends that evolved in 2023 and will continue to gain momentum in 2024.
Here are some of the key 2024 trends that are shaping the future of the packaging industry:
Increasing push toward sustainability
Environmentally conscious consumers and an evolving regulatory landscape will keep sustainability at the forefront of 2024 packaging trends. In 2024, there is expected to be a growing emphasis on making packaging recyclable or reusable. The global zero-waste packaging market size in 2023 was estimated at over $1 billion and is projected to reach nearly $2.5 billion by the end of 2033.

Sustainability is now a mainstay in packaging. Brands today are increasingly integrating the use of recyclable materials in their packaging strategies to reduce packaging waste and shrink their carbon footprint. Meeting consumer preferences for environmentally friendly packaging, complying with evolving regulations and delivering on Environmental Social Governance (ESG) initiatives now requires brand owners to prioritize the use of circular packaging solutions.
In 2024, technology will continue to transform the consumer product packaging industry. Technology such as QR codes and near-field communication (NFC) tags on packaging are increasingly providing consumers with interactive experiences, allowing them to access promotions, product information, recipes, sustainability statistics and more.
Technology is also allowing packaging designers to redesign and improve packaging – like the jar lid.
Evolving regulatory landscape
According to McKinsey, “new regulation governing sustainability dimensions of packaging is expanding on multiple fronts such as proportions of recycling or recycled content and is no longer confined to select countries or regions.”
Governments across the globe are implementing stricter regulations on packaging materials, setting higher recycling targets and requiring companies to sell products in easily recyclable packaging.
It is anticipated that the coming year will see an increase in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) laws for packaging waste. EPR is an approach that holds manufacturers more accountable for the full lifecycle of their packaging. Currently, 23 states can be categorized as EPR with manufacturers paying for the costs of recycling.
Forward thinking brands that adopt sustainable packaging solutions will be best positioned to navigate the evolving regulatory landscape.
Escalating demand for convenient, functional packaging
In 2024, consumer demand for convenient packaging will continue to gain momentum. Consumers stretched thin by work, family and social commitments are expected to drive a surge in the popularity of easy-to-open containers and resealable options.
Brands that deliver on convenience will increase both revenue and consumer loyalty. This is particularly true for specific types of purchases. According to the National Retail Federation, convenience is especially important to consumers when it comes to everyday items such as groceries, personal care items and pet supplies.
Growing imperative for inclusive packaging
Inclusive packaging design should be considered a necessity, not a trend. Inclusive packaging is packaging that is universally easy to open, easy to handle and easy to use by people of all ages and abilities.
In 2024, inclusive packaging is anticipated to have a larger presence on grocery store shelves. While companies should adopt inclusive packaging solely because it is the right thing to do, it does yield tangible benefits for brands. This approach to product packaging provides brands with competitive differentiation in a crowded market and allows companies to expand their customer base. Embracing inclusive, accessible packaging also allows brands to demonstrate their commitment to every customer, which leads to increased brand loyalty and customer retention.
The EEASY Lid delivers on all these trends
As we travel to trade shows and engage in partnership talks, we are hearing from brands on the importance of aligning packaging with these trends. We are proud to tell them that CCT delivers on all of them and more. Here is how we do that:
Sustainability: The EEASY Lid is made of recyclable aluminum. Easy for consumers to recycle, aluminum is a highly durable metal that can be recycled again and again without degrading its inherent value. Nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today.
Technology: CCT’s software designed EEASY Lid is the first jar lid innovation in over 75 years. The patented design makes opening jars up to 50% easier.
Compliance: Packaging innovations like the recyclable EEASY Lid are hitting the market just in time to help brands conserve natural resources, cut waste, reduce their carbon footprint and ensure food safety and quality. The EEASY Lid is a compliance ensured packaging solution brands can adopt now.
Convenience: The EEASY Lid is designed for convenience to help brands improve customer experience with their products. The EEASY Lid eliminates the nearly universal struggle of opening stubborn jar lids. Brands looking to appeal to busy consumers must deliver packaging features like this that can save consumers time and effort.
Inclusivity: Many brands are looking for packaging solutions that deliver on the core value of inclusivity. The EEASY Lid, which provides an unprecedented level of accessibility to jarred food products, is working to help brands make inclusive, accessible packaging the norm rather than the exception.
Contact us today to learn more about how the EEASY Lid can help your brand level up packaging to deliver on all these trends and remain competitive in an evolving marketplace.
