The EcoFocus ten year sustainability trends study identifies the next generation of clean as the marriage of health and environmental responsibility. Healthy, clean and sustainable ingredients are triangulating as shoppers, especially Millennials, seek greater transparency from beverage and food companies. This means they want brands to think about and take a stand on packaging that aligns with healthy ingredients and purposeful brand equities.
Find out where consumers are now and where they are headed in their thinking about clean and purposeful packaging. Learn about opportunities for aligning purpose and packaging to ingredients, from clean label/clean package, to plant-based ingredients/plant-based packaging, and more.
