Finding Your Place at the Table with Ready-Made Meals
Does anybody prepare meals anymore?
With the day to day life of the average family becoming busier by the minute, ready-made meals and prepackaged, ready-to-cook meals are rising sharply in their popularity. Smaller households, economics, busy lifestyles, snacking, and eating alone are among the top consumer trends representing opportunities for the food industry. With possibilities ranging from gourmet meals to individual slices of pizza, and everything between, the consistent factor that unites all varieties is the importance of quality packaging to preserve freshness.
As much as I enjoy to cook, the time to do so is shrinking. Business is booming, families are busy.
What can we do – In the last two years there has been a significant jump from 10% to 16% in people buying premium food online, through grocery stores online delivery services, Meal kits such as Blue Apron, still this little time to prepare the food. And, with 75% of dinners decisions made that day – 86% using the Microwave every day and the Average Meal prep time is 12 min, how does a manufacturer ensure their product retains its quality, freshness and taste while fitting the average family’s needs?
The answer lies in the packaging. Flexible films that are microwavable and paperboard with Susceptors are becoming more popular. Most foods need a balance of moisture retention and freshness, so picking the right packaging is vital to the manufacturer’s brand reputation.
