Resealing capabilities

 

The PrimePeel peel-and-reclose process allows packages to be easily opened and reclosed while maintaining the integrity of the contents. It helps preserve perishable food items such as produce, cheese, and cookies, and other products like cleansing wipes. A pressure-sensitive adhesive label is used with LaserSharp technology. When designing the opening, the laser-scored pattern is not limited to any shape or size, giving the flexibility to create a specific pattern to meet specific packaging needs. The peel and reclose process is suitable for a variety of film structures and packaging types, including trays, stand-up pouches and pillow pouches. For convenience, an easy-open pull-tab is added to the package.

The global market for advanced packaging solutions that includes active, controlled, intelligent packaging, and advanced packaging components was at $31.4 billion in 2011, according to a report from BCC Research entitled Active, Controlled, and Intelligent Packaging for Foods and Beverages — Focus on Active Packaging.

The market growth looks promising and the overall market value for 2017 is projected to be nearly $44.3 billion after increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8%. The market was dominated by controlled packaging, which had sales of nearly $12.4 billion in 2011. The expected CAGR for controlled packaging is 6% from 2012 through 2017, resulting in a projected market value of $17.6 billion in 2017. Active packaging was next in market sharB - Global- rrr.JPGe in 2011 with nearly $8.8 billion in sales; the anticipated CAGR for this segment of advanced packaging is 5.2%, leading to a market value of $11.9 billion in 2017. Advanced packaging components accounted for $6.5 billion of sales in 2011, and the market value for 2017 for this segment is expected to be at around $9.4 billion after rising at a 6.3% CAGR.

The intelligent packaging sales were nearly $3.8 billion in 2011 and could approach $5.3 billion in 2017 with a CAGR 5.6%. 

Consumer packaging is a vital component of contemporary living today, with food and beverage packaging making up the largest segment. Key megatrends, such as upgraded standard of living and demand for safety, convenience, health, well-being, and sustainability are creating long-term shifts affecting consumers’ lives, eating habits, and purchasing behaviors across many different markets, regions and demographics. These shifts, which started a decade or so ago, have forced a constant change of behavior in their manifestation. Globalization has had a tremendous effect as well on the regional markets; however, trends are to some extent also influenced by regional cultures, depending on the progress of the market in question. 

Companies engaged in manufacturing and selling food and beverage packaging must adhere as necessary to whatever regulations are in place or devised. Consumer acceptance is another key factor that manufacturers, retailers, and others involved in the industry should consider. For example, a sudden change in the regular packaging of a product such as meat or poultry might influence consumers’ purchasing of the product. Thus, the company that suddenly introduces a different packaging medium would have to provide detailed and relevant information to foster consumer acceptance of the new packaging. 

The increasing consumer demand for fresh and unaltered food has driven the integration of active packaging in the food and beverages industry. Active packaging uses a variety of techniques. Regional markets for active packaging of food and beverages have grown due to consumer preference for minimally processed foods that employ minimal or no preservatives. The convergence of global factors such as eating habits, health awareness, stress factors due to an overnight work culture, stricter regulations on food safety, and others have added to the transformation of food packaging. These factors have driven the growth of active packaging techniques in all regions.

Controlled packaging of food and beverages in the regional markets grew well during the examined period of 2010 to 2012. There is an expectation of sustained growth for controlled packaging in all regions, since the packaging techniques are focused primarily on retaining the freshness of everyday consumable products such as fresh produce (fruits and vegetables), dairy products, and other preprocessed foods for a particular segment of people.
The intelligent packaging market across all regions – North America, Europe, and emerging markets – increased substantially from 2010 to 2012 and is expected to sustain this growth for the next four to five years. A number of portentous activities, such as collaborative efforts and new product development in the Asia-Pacific region as well as in the European and North American markets, were witnessed.

Global Markets for Active, Controlled and Intelligent Packaging for Foods and Beverages (FOD038C) covers the market for active, controlled, and intelligent packaging, including advanced packaging components. BCC’s analysis includes an evaluation of the market and market breakdowns (including by region and by application) for each advanced packaging type; a breakdown of the market into subcategories as the available data allows; market forecasting; and examination of regulatory aspects, innovations, challenges, patent details, market leaders, and market share of individual packaging types. In addition, the study discusses scientific advances, consumer behaviors, and market vibrancy. 

Market data is presented to show global market trends and growth. Data are statistically validated for present and future predictions.

Reusable…refillable…remarkable

Lisa McTigue Pierce, Executive Editor — Packaging Digest, 2/1/2013 11:29:00 AM





Jason FosterJason FosterJason Foster, founder/CEO of Replenish, is presenting his ideas for delivering value—as well as sustainability—at our WestPack 2013 seminar series in Anaheim, CA, in mid-February. Packaging Digest asked him for some insight into his thinking.

 

Q: Why is a sustainable product and/or package an advantage in today’s retail marketplace?
A:
It’s increasingly becoming a necessity to get more out of what we already have. From retailers to manufacturers to consumers…everyone is trying to figure that out. Our definition of sustainability is starting to incorporate that thinking. It goes far further than the previous techniques of how to be eco friendly. So how can we get more out of products? We want more quality or more convenience or we want to have the ability to customize. We can design products that have more of these features, more benefits. Retailers are trying to find products to carry that prove to consumers, customers and stakeholders that they are trying to do things in a more thoughtful, more sustainable way. Not just the words, the action. The marketplace is looking for products that can meet these requirements.

 

Q: The refillable bottle for your Replenish cleaning products is durable to withstand years of reuse. How do consumers view the sustainability of a reusable package versus, say, a single-use container that they can recycle?
A:
If you asked people point blank the difference between recycling today and reusing, it’s intrinsic that reusing has some real advantages. Recycling can get a bit confusing for the consumer. Reuse offers extra advantages that recycling can’t: Refill packages can be smaller and lighter and take up less space in their home. People tell you those advantages are why they would prefer this product over another.

 

Q: The title of your presentation is “Delivering value not waste to consumers: How sustainable design can reshape the role of packaging.” What will be your main point?
A:
The main point is revealing the power that design has—and design-inspired thinking has—to deliver more of what consumers need and less of what they don’t. Waste means a lot of different things. The most obvious is trash. But it’s also wasteful in time, resources, money. It’s meant to be a far more encompassing word than just something we throw away. In light of this, there’s a better way to design the products that we use every day to be less wasteful.

Advantages of Plastic Granulators ? a Discussion

Advantages of Plastic Granulators ? a Discussion

Plastic granulators are now becoming indispensable part of office supplies. They are, machines designed to break down big sheets of plastic into small and tiny granules that can be carried down easily to a recycling plant for recycling. Plastic items like bottles, cans, sheets, etc. can be fed into plastic granulators for getting reduced into smaller pieces after which they are sold to plastic manufactures to be utilized in recycled products.

The working and parts of plastic granulators
There is a central hub consisting of a powerful rotor attached to a motor running on electric current. The rotor has sturdy blades attached to it with very sharp edges. The entire mechanism is enclosed in a cubical chamber with screens on sides; so that the process of breaking down of plastic into granules can be observed and monitored from outside and necessary intervention can be taken as and when required. There is an inlet tray for feeding the plastic items to the chamber and an outlet box where the granules are deposited for further collection and removal.

On attaching the device to electricity, the entire assembly comes alive. The rotor starts turning and the momentum thus generated enables the cutting of stuff into finer particles. At times, the process has to be carried out several times to achieve the desired results.

Where to find plastic granulators?
Any good supplier of official goods will, definitely have few Plastic granulators in inventory. After carefully considering your need and requirements you can take your pick amongst them.

Another, better way, will be checking out the inventory maintained by online stores. The online stores will be able to offer you better variety and offers as compared to their brick and mortar counterparts.

Guide to Selling Children’s Items on eBay

Guide to Selling Children’s Items on eBay

Selling for a profit on eBay is easy when you have kids. People are earning hundreds of dollars a month by selling kid related items. Here are some general ideas to help you get started.

Kids Items You Can Sell

Clothes, toys and videos are good money makers on eBay.

Go to eBay and look up a “lot” of size six girl’s cloths. You will find they are expensive! The average price for a lot of 20 good conditioned clothes is about .00.

When your kids grow out of their seasonal clothes do not throw them out. Bundle them into different lots by category. For example bundle girls dresses separate from girls play clothes, but only do that if you have at least six of each different type.

Lots of any item sell better than single items unless the item is unique or high priced. For example, a hand embroidered dress that you paid a lot for would sell better by itself instead of bundled with other basic dresses.

The next item to lookup on eBay is toys. Most toys in good condition will sell for a lot of money. One idea that works well is to buy hot items in October at Wal-Mart or Toys-R-Us and sell them on eBay. Busy people are willing to pay extra for the convenience of getting the items delivered to their home.
For example, last year a Mega Power Ranger came out in stores around October and sold at Wal-Mart for about .00. The same item sold on eBay for up to .00 plus shipping. The Yellow Power Ranger is yet another example where the store price was about .00, while the same item was selling on eBay for about .00.

Have your children ever received duplicate birthday or Christmas presents? You can sell those on eBay also. Look at the eBay listings for items of interest to see if selling on eBay is worth more than returning the item to the store.

Kid’s videos and DVDs are also good money-makers. Bundle about three of these together, and you can usually make about .00-.00 per bundle. Bundle more and the money goes up. Disney movies in hard cases can go for a higher amount. This also works for other types of movies as well.

Save those McDonalds toys. Some Kids Meals toys sell high. Take the new Star Wars toys from Burger King…very collectible. You will find them selling on eBay from .00 to .00, not including shipping.

Ebay has a whole section devoted to dolls and bears. If your daughter doesn’t want her collectible dolls anymore sell them on eBay.

Kids Crafts You Can Sell

Around the holidays, especially, have your children place their hand in paint and make a print on some quality paper. Add a holiday related poem and you have a great craft to sell on eBay.

Have your kids make gift jars with ready made mixes. For example, hot chocolate mixes in a jar with a plastic spoon tied to it with a ribbon. Dip the end of the spoon with white chocolate.

Baby Items You Can Sell

Used baby items are very profitable. Baby items cost a lot of money, especially in their first year. Any “gently” used items are generally good sellers on eBay.

If you have baby coupons that you will never use, sell them on eBay! Left over diapers and formula sell well also. A lot of 35 used cloth diapers usually sells for around .00 plus shipping. Four Fuzzi Bunz diapers (cloth diapers with hemp inserts) can sell for as much as .00.

There you have it. Plenty of ideas for selling those leftover kids items on eBay…and you can even make a nice profit while you are at it!

Unpackaged materials could look better for you in essence, because they’re less believable to hold preservatives.

Bottled Water vs. Alkaline Water: How Much Are You Paying?

Bottled Water vs. Alkaline Water: How Much Are You Paying?

How much money would you be willing to spend for the convenience of a bottle of water that does not necessarily contains any minerals that could benefit your body? How much would you be willing to risk your health to continue drinking bottled water? The cost of bottled water might not seem like much when you look at it on a daily basis, but what about the cost to your health? What about the dent in your wallet paying for bottled water makes over time?

We’re encouraged to drink 8 cups of water everyday at 8 ounces per cup. But these days, medical practitioners have increased that number to around 9 cups per day for women and 13 cups per day for men. Roughly, we’re advised to consume ½  a gallon of water every day. These numbers vary with age, level of activity, gender and environment but an average person needs to consume about 10 gallons of water per week.

Now, let’s compare the cost of bottled water versus alkaline water. Generally bottled water cost 2 dollars each, and a consumer will spend 130 to 780 dollars on bottled water per year, depending on whether it is delivered or if the consumer hauls the water himself. 130 dollars doesn’t seem that bad for an entire year’s worth of water considering that it’s convenient and clean, but what about over a longer period of time, like 40 years?

Over 40 years, the consumer will spend between 5,200 and 31,200 dollars on bottled water. Think about what you could buy with 5,200 dollars, or 31,200 dollars! You could buy a car just by saving the money you spent  on bottled water over 40 years.

So, how exactly do we save our money from spending unnecessarily on bottled water? Well, we can buy water filter to filter water from the tap so that we can get alkaline water instead. Generally, the price for filtered water can vary, depending on the type of filtered water system that you use.

You could spend 93 dollars on a plastic faucet mount, 150 on a pour-through pitcher, 330 on an alkaline system, 406 on Distillation, or 600 on a mid-range Reverse Osmosis system. It seems like a lot when you hit beyond 150 dollars, but over a long period of time, the initial cost is absolutely worth it.

330 dollars spent on an alkaline system doesn’t seem like much when you compare it to the cost of the system over 40 years at only 1,730 dollars. That means you spend only 1,400 dollars over 39 years on your water supply. That’s more than 3,000 dollars less than the cheapest bottled water you can find in the market.

Overall, alkaline water systems is not cheaper than bottled water but they are healthier  too as alkaline water takes out impurities like chlorine and many other harmful substance from the water, leaving you with good tasting water that benefits your health.

How To Secure Inbound And Outbound Packages

How To Secure Inbound And Outbound Packages

If your business involves the use and delivery of packages then you need to consider implementing proper security for it. When packages arrive at your customer’s doorstep damaged in any way, this will reflect poorly on your business regardless of whether you’re at fault or not.

Security Tips for Outbound Packages
If you are shipping packages to your customers, here are a number of things you should consider.

Packaging Materials
Always use heavy-duty materials that will be able to protect its content from weather and accidental damage alike. Custom-sized packaging is also ideal and especially if you do not use an inner layer of protective lining for your products. If your products are also exceptionally fragile, having it jostle about inside a too-large package could result into surface damage.

Packaging Method
As with gift wrapping, there’s also an art to packaging your merchandise. Anything made of glass, for instance, is usually wrapped with paper first before placed within an insulated casing and lastly, the packaging box.

Do research for tips if you are unaware of the ideal packaging method for your merchandise.

Secured Shipping
If you are outsourcing your shipping needs then do be sure to choose a reputable company and one that hopefully offers a tracking system for your customers’ convenience. If you are offering door-to-door shipping, make sure that your personnel is sufficiently trained. Documentary proof must always accompany every transaction and every product shipped and received.

Security Tips for Inbound Packages
If you own a gold-buying website then you are probably concerned about inbound packages. In this case, the safety and security of the packages will depend on you and your customer.

To start with, you need to choose packaging materials suitable for protecting jewelries and other valuables. Remember: the quality of jewelries and other similar accessories largely depends on its surface appearance. Your packaging must preserve its pre-selling condition and not detract from it.

Your packaging kit must come with a clear set of instructions on the next customers will take. If you are shouldering shipping expenses then the kit must come with a prepaid return shipping label.

Again, if your shipping needs are to be outsourced, you must choose a reputable company and one that offers a tracking system. This will limit your customer support expenses as well since your customers will direct their concerns to the shipping company.

Lastly, whether inbound or outbound, packages must also be sufficiently insured. Implement these tips and you’ll never have to worry about any package getting lost or damaged.

If you truly want to take care of your business and you are worried about packages getting lost, why not use package security products from Brackley Industries.

Bottled Water – The Environmental Cost

Bottled Water – The Environmental Cost

Sales of bottled water in the UK have increased dramatically over the last 15 years.  At around a pound a time, what is it that drives us to pay for a bottle, when we can get safe water from the tap, virtually for free?

Many say that bottled water is purer, giving health benefits, but others would argue we’re simply paying for convenience and a lifestyle accessory.

But, with a carbon footprint of around 100g per bottle, the industry has a devastating effect on our environment.  Many brands of bottled water are transported from producers to consumers all around the world, which, added to the manufacture of plastic bottles themselves, gives bottled water a massive carbon footprint – some have estimated it is up to 1,000 times that of tap water.

There’s also other environmental issues – 13 billion bottles are sold each year, but only 3 billion are recycled, meaning a massive 10 billion bottles going to landfill.  It is also estimated that the industrial process uses up to 7 litres of water to produce just 1 litre of bottled water.

And what about the moral issue?  Why do consumers in the west choose to spend millions on bottled water, when there are so many people who don’t have access to any clean water at all?

As we become more environmentally and ethically aware, sales of bottled water are beginning to reduce.  Hopefully this marks the beginning of the end for this convenient but destructive product.
