Temperature-controlled packaging Innova Market Insights identified “Home Delivery Haven” as the year’s leading packaging trend. As much of the world perseveres with COVID-19 social restrictions, demand for grocery and premium F&B home delivery is skyrocketing, presenting new demand for temperature-controlled packaging.
A crucial challenge for transit packaging is freshness preservation, intensified by pandemic supply chain disruptions and geo-political uncertainties like Brexit.
Mondi’s corrugated BCoolBox – keeping fresh food chilled below 7 °C using thermo-insulation and replacing the need for high-energy cooling trucks – demonstrates the shelf life-enhancement power of temperature-controlled innovation.
Also hot on hygiene-enhancement, DS Smith and TemperPack partnered on ClimaCell, a recyclable thermal insulation barrier for temperature-sensitive products such as meal kits and perishable groceries.
According to a recent survey by Innova Market Insights, 35 percent of global consumers have increased their home food delivery use since the virus outbreak. Moreover, the survey indicates 15 percent of global consumers do not expect to return to regular grocery habits post-pandemic.
