Top 3 Trends in Custom Transparent Packaging in the Food Industry
Top 3 Trends in Custom Transparent Packaging in the Food Industry
July 18, 2018

The use of custom transparent packaging in the food and retail industry has grown steadily over the last few decades. The popularity of this type of packaging is expected to continue as it becomes more associated with healthy, organic products and the type of product that attract customers.


More consumers want to be able to see the product in order to decide, whether this is in terms of healthy, organics food or products with features or presentation that stands out. The increased popularity ready-to-eat food, rapid urbanization and higher disposable incomes will also see the food and retail industries using more of this type of transparent packaging.


Here are 3 innovations in custom transparent packaging, from the experts at VueCraft:


1. More Innovative Barrier Films

Growing environmental concerns will push for more innovations in the use of transparent packaging. Manufacturers will be using more additive agents to increase moisture and vapor resistance. Chlorine content will also be eliminated, thus reducing carbon emission and energy consumption when barrier films are made.


2. Better Recycling Capabilities

The implementation of new regulations for plastic reduction has led waste handling organizations to introduce new recycling techniques for aluminum and chlorine-added films. A new process called pyrolysis allows transparent film to burn in a chamber without generating any carbon dioxide. The carbon and liquid carbon produced by this process can be used to meet fuel and energy demands.


3. Rise of the Biodegradable Transparent Film Market

The biodegradable transparent film market is also expected to grow. From the development of Polyhydroxybutyrate Valerate (PHBV), one of the fastest biodegradable packaging film, the market has expanded to include protein-based plastic, polyvinylalcohol, polysaccharides and others.


Custom transparent packaging in the food and retail industry is growing by leaps and bounds. With VueCraft, your business can rely on custom made transparent packaging that will engage consumers and provide recyclable solutions. Contact us today to learn more!
