Resealable packaging in the world of healthy snacking

Nowadays, our busy lifestyles dictate our eating patterns, and studies show that the healthy snacks market is growing in demand. *

The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies (PMMI) forecasts that the U.S. food industry will grow at a stable rate of 2.9% CARG (compounded annual rate of growth) through 2022, with snacks predicted to experience over 3 percent growth at the same time. Both trends are driven by customer demands for portion control and convenience. **

Food packaging plays an important role in reducing portion sizes and offering easy access to the contents. Below are a few benefits that resealable technology can offer:

Easy opening – Resealable packs can be easily opened and closed many times. This not only facilitates opening, but also helps slow down premature food decay.

Portion control – Customers enjoy smaller portions without worrying about wasting food, as resealable packs can be reclosed for later reuse which helps maintain product freshness.

Tamper evidence – Recloseable packs often come with a highly-visible tamper evident feature that helps ensure your food products have not been tampered with and are safe to consume.

Snacking on-the-go – Thanks to their recloseable properties, resealable packs are easy to consume while travelling – they prevent food from spilling all over your car once opened.

Reseal-it® is an innovative, resealable labelling solution that allows packs to be opened and closed up to 25 times. It is already being used by some of the leading FMCG manufacturers around the world on more than 500 million packs a year!
