Players in the snack food industry have always been focused on safety and machinability when it comes to product packaging. But now a third “must-have” is factoring into their decision-making process: sustainability.

It’s easy to understand why.

A 2015 Cone Communications/Ebiquity CSR Study revealed that 84 percent of consumers globally say they seek out responsible products whenever possible. They are making purchases with an eye toward a brand’s demonstration of corporate social responsibility, and that includes product packaging. According to Smithers Pira, worldwide authority on the packaging, paper and print industry supply chains, “sustainability is no longer just ‘nice to have’ but is now seen as a necessity for attracting consumers and protecting market share.”
