From weighing the different pros and cons to identifying your overall packaging and business needs, choosing the right flexible packaging option for your product can be a strenuous process. But it’s an important process that will ultimately help your product stand out on the shelf and make its way into consumer’s homes.
One option that can provide a unique touch to your product is single-use packaging. Single-use packaging can come in a variety of forms including sample packets, foldover pouches and flat pillow pouches. This type of packaging is designed with the consumer in mind, emphasizing the importance of product quality and easy-to-use functionality.
Let’s take a deeper dive into a few other advantages single-use packaging provides.
The great thing about single-use packaging is that food spoilage and staleness becomes much less of a concern. For example, buying individually packaged single-use sandwich meat eliminates the need to store and reseal. Even snack foods like chips and trail mix can be packaged in smaller, single-use bags that can be finished off in one sitting with no need to reseal for later.
While resealability does have its share of advantages, it requires a greater focus on safe storage compared to single-use alternatives.
As alluded to above, single-use packaging can support a wide range of markets including beauty and cosmetic sample packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, candy packaging, dry food packaging, spice packaging and even pet foods and treats.
Single-use packaging can also add great versatility to your product itself, giving consumers more ways to use your product and interact with it – and versatile, feature-rich products certainly don’t go unnoticed.
With proper serving sizes already measured out, consumers can use single-use food packaging to prepare meals faster and with more accuracy as they would using the popular meal kit home delivery model.
Single-use packaging gives consumers the freedom to create meal kits of their very own, providing a simple food prep solution that’s ideal for millennial consumers and small families.
