The packaging transformation: How moving closer to a sustainable future is shifting consumer behavior

For this Business Club reading, Monica Gross will inspire us with a talk about the packaging transformation.

Korte inhoud:

Brands are on the brink of a pivotal moment where compliance with upcoming regulations, geopolitical shifts, and evolving shopping habits will reshape virtually every market sector. These transformative times present a new reality that is moving us closer to a sustainable future and, as a result, will alter how consumers behave with packaging. The pressing question on everyone's mind is: How do we continue to captivate tomorrow's consumers with packaging that is not only safe, visually enticing, and functional but also environmentally responsible? Join Avery Dennison as we delve into current and future trends reshaping the packaging industry, the dynamics of sustainable packaging design, and its influence on consumer behavior. Discover how even the smallest details of packaging design, the label, can profoundly impact consumer engagement in this ever-evolving marketplace.
