Consumer preferences and behaviors are shaping resealable packaging innovations that respond to the need for convenience dictated by today’s busy lifestyles. In fact, 57% of consumers want more resealable packages according to data cited in a recent GreenBiz article. Brands are increasingly using resealable product packaging to deliver this convenience and boost consumer satisfaction with their products.
Convenience is just one of the major reasons resealable packaging appeals to consumers. Consumers also give this packaging their seal of approval for its ability to help create healthier eating habits, reduce food waste and keep food fresh.
Portion control is important to consumers wanting to develop healthier eating habits. Tapping into the single-serve trend, resealable packaging allows products to be consumed in smaller quantities, which can help reduce unhealthy overeating. With resealable packaging, consumers can keep products fresh while regulating consumption.
The ability to keep food fresh longer is a key driver of growing demand for resealable packaging. Resealable packaging helps properly store products to avoid food spoilage and keep them safe from contamination. Packaging that can be reclosed again and again not only extends the shelf life and quality of perishable products but allows consumers to enjoy them more fully.
Food that stays fresher longer also has the major benefit of keeping food out of the landfill. Resealable packaging addresses consumer concerns over the growing problem of food waste. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in the United States, more food reached landfills and combustion facilities than any other single material in our everyday trash. To cut down on household food wastage, waste-conscious consumers are increasingly selecting resealable packaging solutions.
