Sustainability top trend in foodservice packaging
The Foodservice Packaging Institute’s 2015 Trends Report reveals foodservice operators are looking for environmentally friendly packaging and customization techniques to differentiate products.
“When it comes to foodservice packaging and the materials used to manufacture them, interest in sustainable, green or environmentally-friendly options continue to be popular. What’s notable this year is the overwhelming number of mentions related to compostable packaging,” said Lynn Dyer, FPI president. “We create this trends report each year to help our members understand what’s driving sales so they can take advantage of these opportunities and support the changing needs of their customers.”
The survey was distributed in September and garnered opinions from companies in the raw materials, machinery, packaging, distribution and operations sectors.
