Goodbye bag-in-box: Bakery and cereals packaging

Mar 2019

There has been a steady growth in the number of flexible packaging options in the cereal category, with manufacturers moving away from traditional bag-in-box options to flexible pouches and stand-up bags. For the bakery category, there has been a significant increase in the number of product launches that are packaged using bio-based/biodegradable materials such as paper, cardboard or bio-plastics. Both categories have witnessed an increase in the launch activity for products with an ethical – packaging claim.
