How Has COVID-19 Significantly Negatively Impacted the Fresh Food Packaging Market?

As covid-19 began to disrupt supply networks, the critical role packaging companies play in the supply chain became apparent. However, as the world connected, moved apart, and required more protective packaging to transport goods and products, the demand for protective packaging skyrocketed. Agri-food activities have been hard hit by the epidemic. The pandemic has had a detrimental influence on meat packaging in the short term, leading to some shortages in consumption. On the other side, fast food outlets have seen an increase in demand. Due to recycling facility closures and flavor shortages, soda producers have been hampered by aluminum shortages. The food service industry’s need for food packaging decreased when arenas and sports venues closed. When large offices and industrial enterprises ceased, company cafeterias were closed. In terms of packaging, I’ve noticed an increase in demand for fast food and mainstream beverages. The folding carton company manufactures the dies used to cut more than 80% of all fast food containers, as well as virtually all beer and beverage cartons. One of our customers delivered 60 carton loads of medium sized chicken nuggets in just one week.

What are the current market drivers?

Growing Demand for Extended Shelf Life Products

Consumers are increasingly interested in practical solutions to reduce their carbon footprint as they become more aware of the environmental impact of their behaviors. More than ever, consumers expect items that reflect their values ​​and are sourced, produced and packaged in the most sustainable way possible. According to our research, consumers consider shelf life when buying yogurt to save money and reduce waste.

Increased consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables

Fruit and vegetable consumption varies by country and socio-economic class. Nutritional insufficiency and calorie excess hit low-income households the hardest. There is a general correlation between better education and increased consumption of fruits and vegetables. Fruit and vegetable consumption is linked to social determinants of health such as ability, opportunity and motivation. Only 29% of adults and 18% of children in the United Kingdom (UK) consume five servings of fruit and vegetables a day. The majority of Americans in the United States do not consume the two and a half cups of vegetables and two cups of fruit suggested by The Dietary Guidelines for Americans every day. Food insufficiency, lack of product availability in rural and neglected metropolitan areas, cost of food, time “poverty” and inadequate health knowledge are all barriers to eating more.

Where are the market opportunities?

Increased awareness of sustainable packaging and global warming

Products perceived as harmful to the environment, such as plastics and printing inks, are being phased out. The use of reused or recyclable materials is preferred. PVC bottles are replaced with PET bottles, recycled into PET fibers for clothing and created are recycled into PET fibers for clothing and create chlorine when burned. The paper and cardboard, glass and metal packaging industries, including aluminum, recycle and reuse materials substantially on a global scale. “Bio-packs” are also increasingly popular (produced from rice and corn starches). On the other hand, others, on the other hand, may be against this trend as it puts a strain on arable land that could otherwise be used for food production.

Growing demand for suitable packaging to keep food fresh

Grocery store shelves are filled with manufactured items with low nutritional value. It’s no surprise that America is growing in size, with everything from cupcakes to pudding. Not to mention, it’s not hard to keep Twinkies or other snacks fresh for a long time. Processed foods have a longer shelf life and it’s simple to spruce up the packaging to capture the attention of aisle shoppers. Fresh and organic products such as fruits, vegetables, coffee, meat and tea are also available. These products require a unique packaging strategy that incorporates ingredients that improve shelf life and keep food fresh. Although preservatives allow manufactured foods to be consumed for longer periods of time, they must rely on fresh bag keeping to extend the shelf life of organic products.
