Category Trends

Convenience is king, and the key driver in packaged food packaging trends. Consumers are seeking out pre-prepared, ready-to-consume products which better serve our time-poor, demanding lifestyles. 

Interest in healthful eating and lifestyle is also an important influencer in this category, and a growing interest in culinary matters continues to compel interest and preference for chilled, processed food as a fresher, healthier alternative to shelf-stable food (which is perceived as being laden with preservatives).
