Gender Packaging – The Future for Food Pack Design?

International Men’s Day took place last week and it got us thinking about gender packaging, why food manufacturers choose to make their product gender specific and how it affects consumer choice.

Rovers Home

LINPAC is a proud sponsor of the local rugby team, Featherstone Rovers with our logo taking pride of place on the players’ shirts and proudly supporting the team all of the way. 

Leading global fresh food packaging supplier, LINPAC and new partner ZULTEC Group joined forces at Gulfood Manufacturing to demonstrate their strengthened capabilities to customers across the Middle East.

British Sausage Week LINPAC

What would life be like without bangers with your mash, cocktail sausages at a picnic or pigs in blankets next to your turkey at Christmas? Miserable. That’s what.

We are aware of the health risks that have recently been tied to sausages and processed meats, however eating is all about quantity - any food in excess is bad for you. Sausages are an excellent source of protein, contain essential amino acids and provide vitamins and minerals. 

Halloween LINPAC

Well, it’s fair to say that the once traditionally American holiday Halloween has well and truly got its feet under the British table or should I say has its hands in Britain’s pockets.

The annual event is expected to provide more than £271 million of benefit to the UK retail sector this year, adding 5% to its annual growth and making it the UK’s third most profitable seasonal period. 

Is Bigger Always Better?

 Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980; in 2014, over 1.9 billion adults were overweight according to The World Health Organisation.

 From ‘Supersize me’ menu options to 50% extra free pack offers, no wonder consumers are overeating. It’s no secret that we as modern consumers can’t resist a bargain and larger packs generally tend to be better value for money and with these incentives it’s easy to give in.

Food Glorious Food

 Are you worried about what you’re having for breakfast tomorrow and where it’s coming from? You could argue your local supermarket but actually it’s a lot wider than that. As the population increases along with food waste and climate change food supply is becoming a greater worry than ever. 

Salmon

Seafood appears to be an increasingly popular protein source for consumers, especially with the rise in consumption of sushi together with growing numbers of health conscious consumers making a link between fish and well being. Surf and turf dining options and ready-to-cook products are also beginning to attract more millennials. However, despite this apparent popularity, overall volume sales of fish and shellfish are forecast to drop by 13% to 329 million kilograms by 2019.

E-commerce packaging

The UK is currently the world’s second largest online grocery market according to IGD whose worth is expected to almost double to reach $28 billion in just 5 years. So can retailers and packaging companies afford to miss out on these online grocery opportunities but also deliver on functionality and sustainability?

E-Commerce Packaging

More of us than ever before are shopping online with IGD forecasting that by 2019 27% of UK consumers will be buying groceries via the internet. But what impact will this have on our packaging?
