Bharat Book Bureau: Produce Packaging

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) US demand to reach $5.7 billion in 2017 Demand for produce packaging is forecast to reach $5.7 billion in 2017. Growth will outpace expected expansion in fresh produce production, reflecting the important role of packaging in the protection, safety assurance, and marketing of fresh fruits and vegetables. Moreover, advances will be fueled by the increasing presence of fresh-cut, readyto- eat produce, which offers convenience and tends to use more value added packaging than bulk produce. Other trends stimulating gains include increased nutritional awareness and rising interest in fresh foods such as produce as a key component of healthy lifestyles.

Boxes to remain largest type, plastic containers to grow the fastest Corrugated boxes will remain the leading produce packaging type through 2017 and beyond based on attributes of relatively low cost, light weight, good protective performance, graphics capabilities, and a well established recycling infrastructure. Advances will be helped by the increased prevalence of more costly box types such as modular and display-ready boxes, white-top linerboard boxes, highly printed boxes, and moisture-resistant recyclable boxes.

Plastic containers will experience the fastest gains among major produce packaging types through 2017. Advances will be propelled by continued favorable, though decelerating, growth in berry production and expanding applications for clamshells and other plastic containers with whole and fresh-cut produce, both for retail and foodservice applications. Concerns regarding food safety and security will boost demand for plastic containers with tamper resistance features. However, inroads by stand-up pouches will occur in some clamshell applications.
