The Covid-19 pandemic has brought changes in every aspect of life as we knew it. This includes how we view, buy and use products and by association, the packaging that encases these products. Today, consumers’ expectations and preferences are heavily dependent on the impact of this global crisis. With emerging variants and new health advisories on a daily, buyers expect rapid changes from the market to accommodate the crucial needs of the general public.
A few areas of packaging and packaging design that have needed to keep pace with changing scenario are:
Food packaging is a vital part of the supply chain of food manufacturers as it attracts customers and in certain cases also improves the product shelf life. It greatly Influences the customer purchasing behavior and is modeled meticulously after considerable research. Subsequent to the global health emergency that loomed over us through most of 2020, markets of the world underwent revolution and so has the food packaging segment.
Focusing on safety
Food packaging refers to the enclosing of food products to shield them from contamination and tampering from chemical, physical, and biological sources. You may also package food to enhance its shelf life or keep its taste and quality during shipping and handling. Many food products whether fresh or processed, are stored, marketed, and distributed in packaging.
Because food is a delicate product, it's important for it to be well packaged to avoid coming into contact with contaminants. The materials you use in packaging should guarantee safety during transit.
The Packaging Industry in India is one maong the high growth industries which are developing at a rate of 22-25% per annum. Grdaually, as Make in India catches up with industries, India has the potential of becoming a preferred hub of Packaging market world wide.

Serialization is the provision of a unique serial number to each saleable unit of a product. This number provides information about the product’s origin, manufacturing, and expiration date and works as an identifier for tracking. Serialization codes are generated either randomly or sequentially.
Serialization is important (and obligatory in most countries), especially in the pharmaceutical industry, as it protects against counterfeit drugs.
Active and intelligent elements are being widely added to packaging to increase consumer engagement and safety of the product. One such smart addition to packaging is smart ink.
Smart inks are generally of two types:
THERMOCHROMATIC INKS: They change colour when the temperature increases or decreases. This colour change is reversible and constant.
PHOTOCHROMIC INKS: They change colour on exposure to daylight (UV light). Again, this change this reversible and instantaneous.
Environmental consciousness is now a must-have core value for every business and company introducing new products into the market. In such an economy, it is necessary to ponder over the following before beginning the design process of your product:
Raw Materials: Using 100% recycled and/or 100% recyclable material is suggested while considering the energy consumption and waste generation of processing. It is ideal to not introduce new, previously unused materials into the cycle.
During shipping, insulation and refrigerants are key to preserving products like seafood, plants, meat, and fruits as well as dairy, medical, and chemical products. With the proper combination of insulation and refrigerants, you can maintain products within specific temperature ranges. You can keep products frozen, or prevent products from freezing. You can prevent melting and thawing in hot weather and minimize the effects of short-term temperature variations. We’ll show you how.
The use of plastics, especially single-use plastics, has devastating consequences. Globally, almost 300 million tons of plastic products are produced every year, and a significant portion out of it is used for packaging. These plastics then end up in landfills and the ocean, where it creates numerous environmental problems.
