Sample Paper Pro Trends

Designer Dessert Consumers search for efficient forms of personalization in food Implications - DIY culture may be thriving, but many consumers don't have the time to make their own goods. Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity for customization, consumers are turning to services that let them design, as opposed to make, their own desserts. Ultimately, consumers still want to be involved, on some level, in the creation of their goods.

Allowing consumers to easily access contents of a package without ripping or tearing the product, brands are not only adding an interactive quality to the process, but are also allowing consumers to enjoy larger servings in a more convenient, cost-effective manner.

Flatpack Food The beverage and edibles industry is given a single-serve, foldable overhaul Implications - Flatpacking, a.k.a RTA or KD, is a method conceived in the furniture industry that, because of its eco-friendliness, portability and efficiency, is leaking its way into other industries. Most recently, it has permeated the edibles industry by making foods and beverages easier to consume on the go. The idea lends to the consumer preference for efficiency in goods consumption and carting.
