Packaging Matters

MeadWestvaco study: Consumers dissatisfied with #packaging http://ow.ly/htHo7

This week MeadWestvaco released a consumer satisfaction study called Packaging Matters. Some of the most notable findings were that satisfaction decreases when the consumer uses the package at home, especially to-go containers.

Read more findings from this study at Packaging Digest.

 

Beverage Labels

Are energy drink #labels missing important information and warnings? http://ow.ly/hvBCX

Why your food brand should be on #Pinterest - Food is the #1 category http://ow.ly/hpwAW

This infographic presents the facts behind the Pinterest user. Because users interact the most with the food category, we recommend our food industry friends get involved and share their products.

Pinterest is a great place to share your brand images and give tips on recipes for your product.

We love sharing the wonderful packaging and label examples in the food industry on our boards. Get started today! We'd love to add your packaging to one of our Pinterest boards.
