Increasing demand for packaged food

The packaging industry is a mix of organized medium to large players as well very small players. Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies are widely adopting sustainable packaging technologies to decrease the packaging cost and to ensure usage of recyclable, eco-friendly packaging material. Snacks constitute more than 10% of meal occasions in the US. The American Consumers are not just reaching for potato chips and cookies, but they are also becoming increasingly concerned about a healthy diet that is rich in vegetables.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for specialty chemicals, “The consumers in Europe are concerned about healthy snacking. Around two-thirds of Europeans enjoy savory snacks such as chips and nuts at least once a week. Almost one-third of Europeans care more about the presence of natural ingredients in their food compared to the fat content or calorie count or even the presence of organic ingredients.”
