  • Green meat-alternative tray

    As discussed in the blog ‘How flexitarians are changing the food industry one veggie burger at a time’, flexitarian consumer trends are starting to impact the food industry significantly. LINPAC recognises the vast opportunities the meat alternative market presents to packaging manufacturers and here are five trends we predict will shape this market in 2016:

    We’ve compiled a list of dos and don’ts to ensure a barbecue goes without a hiccup.
