The fresh food packaging market witnesses several strategic approaches, such as collaboration, mergers & acquisitions, expansion, and product/ technology launches. Major industry players make strategic investments to drive their research & development activities and expansion plans.

With consumer demand for fresh food packaging on the rise, manufacturers strive to design solutions that can offer innovative solutions to their customers, enhancing products’ direct visibility and longevity.

COVID-19 Impact:

Onset of the COVID-19 pandemic hit the fresh food packaging industry severely. Although the demand for fresh foods & beverages was significant amid the pandemic-driven crises, growers/shippers, re-packers, and retail stores faced huge revenue losses. Besides, the lockdown mandates halted the production of several key raw materials required to manufacture packaging solutions, resulting in spiked prices and lowered demand for fresh food packaging solutions.
