Manage Your New Nutrition Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Manage Your New Nutrition Labels [post_content] =>

The new style, FDA approved, nutritional facts labels take effect next month.

The agency has stated that due to many companies int the food industry not being ready, enforcement will be delayed for six months, but this is still a good time to ensure you have a plan to be in compliance.

One of the reasons stated for the delay is that many food producers have a large number of existing printed labels in stock that need to be used up, and many have not finished the process of procuring labels to the new design.

One way to help with this problem (and to make managing many SKUs of nutrition labels much easier) is to invest in ID Technology’s labeling system, with optional print/apply head to print the nutrition information right on the label applicator at the time of use.

The 262 print/apply labeling head can be used as the bottom head on a top/bottom labeler or as a bottom only labeler in order to produce the completed printed nutrition label.

On a top/bottom set-up, this allows for the existing nicely printed digital or flexo label to be applied to the top of the package and the complete bottom label with allergen, ingredients and nutritional information be printed on the bottom label.

We recommend using NiceLabel label management to provide full control of the label designs and ensure that only the correct, approved label is printed every time.

Using this system can eliminate the need to source and manage multiple pre-printed label SKUs and prevent being left with inventories of obsolete labels when the copy on the label changes.

In addition, the 262 labeling head can also apply conventional printed labels, allowing our customers to use pre-printed labels for large volume products and the print/apply feature for smaller runs.

Our labeling systems are built in the USA and are designed to be easy to set-up, use and maintain.

Product Coding for Protein Producers

Array ( [post_title] => Product Coding for Protein Producers [post_content] =>

Regardless of package type, companies that produce meat or poultry products need to add variable information to the package. This includes date and lot codes, establishment codes, regulatory agency logos, and increasingly barcodes.

In many industries, this is quite straightforward, but for protein companies, there is the added complication of the environment in which coding and packaging equipment has to operate. Cold and wet conditions are the norm and any equipment brought into the plants needs to be able to handle this as well as washdown situations.

Traditionally continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers have been used for printing variable information onto meat and poultry packaging. These printers can usually handle the harsh conditions found on the packaging lines and also produce the print quality that is good enough for the applications. Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers have not been used in the past due to the inks being unsuitable for use on the films used for the packaging.

inkjet printing for protein companies

Over the last few years, however, there have been great advances in the chemistry of inks for TIJ printing and today, this technology is proving to be very successful at printing onto the non-porous substrates used for protein packaging.

The ink cartridges used in thermal inkjet printers ensure that there is no need to have to deal with the MEK and other solvents used in other print technologies, such as CIJ. There is no need to deal with disposing of partially used ink or additive bottles.

With no cleaning cycle needed at startup or shutdown, a thermal inkjet printer is always ready to work.

The thermal inkjet coders provided by ProMach brands, Code Tech & ID Technology, are designed to be able to get the job done in these areas. They bring all the advantages of the thermal inkjet system but include models that are available in IP65 versions, perfect for producing excellent code quality every time, regardless of the environment.

 

Reduce Maintenance & Downtime

A thermal impact printer uses familiar HP type ink cartridges. This means that every time you change the cartridge, you effectively get a new printer.

As a bonus, should you need to change the color of your print, this is accomplished by simply replacing the ink cartridge with one of the required color.

Our TIJ printers come in versions that are built to IP65 environmental protection. This means that regardless of how dirty or wet the packaging environment, the printers will operate happily.

Exceptional Print Quality

With print resolutions of up to 600×600 DPI, thermal inkjet produces perfect prints every time, even when printing very small fonts or high-density barcodes.

Inks are available that are fast drying and durable to suit just about every packaging material.

Quick and Simple Installation and Integration

Thermal inkjet printers from ID Technology and Code Tech have a small footprint, making them easy to install in your parent packaging machine, even when multiple heads are needed.

Combined with the web handling and printer traversing expertise of the Greydon brand, printers from ProMach Labeling & Coding can be integrated with every type of flexible packaging machine.

Is TIJ Always the Best Technology to Use?

No, not always.

Thermal inkjet brings some important advantages, but there are times where an alternative technology such as CIJ printing, thermal transfer, laser or ink stamping might make sense. We happen to sell a complete range of coding technologies so we can work with you to help decide which is best for your unique needs.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Array ( [post_title] => Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link [post_content] =>

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link
Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode.

End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers

Array ( [post_title] => End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers [post_content] =>

As companies improve their products and introduce new models, earlier generations are discontinued and eventually can no longer be supported.

I recently received a reminder from SATO that some of their legacy models have reached the end of their service/support period.

Included are the following models:

SATO EOS

 

You can see the original SATO end of service notice here: SATO EOS Doc

Most users of these printers have already upgraded to current models, but if you happen to still be using any of these models, please note that by the end of August, service will end and spare parts will be limited until the end of the year, after which they can’t be ordered.

What Should You Do?

If you do use any of these discontinued printers, it is best to upgrade to a new  SATO CLNX printer. The new model has a lot of advantages and is designed to be a simple replacement for older printers. SATO also has a special trade-in program for the legacy printers that you can take advantage of. ID Technology can help you with every step of this process.

The Labeling News PodcastOur most recent podcast covered two topics:

The Loop waste-free packaging concept and how laser coding can help brands meet their sustainability targets.

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa’s CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I’m still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

Loop Waste Free Packaging Concept

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application – see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/

Laser Coding Can Help Meet Sustainability Targets

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa’s CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I’m still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability

Loop Waste Free Packaging Concept

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application – see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/

Laser Coding Can Help Meet Sustainability Targets

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases

Array ( [post_title] => Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases [post_content] =>

Using inkjet printers to add variable information to shipping cases, is increasing in popularity. Using this technique can dramatically reduce the number of pre-printed items that need to be managed and fit into company efforts to increase digitalization and move to a lean workflow.

Here at ID Technology, we have a lot of experience when it comes to installing inkjet systems for printing barcodes, text and graphics onto corrugated cases. We are a founding distributor of the FoxJet ProSeries system and have won the prestigious Regency Award for top FoxJet distributor for 14 consecutive years.

If there is one thing we’ve learned over this time, it’s that having good product handling is as important as having good printing equipment for getting the high-quality, compliant GS1 barcodes that customers demand. If the boxes are not presented consistently and accurately to the printheads, this will show in poor print quality and in particular will not allow high-quality barcodes to be printed.

To help educate users on best practices for product handling, our friends at FoxJet recently produced a detailed whitepaper on this topic that goes over many of the issues that are important to ensure great quality printing every time.

FoxJet ProSeries Printers

The whitepaper the transition from the case taper or sealer to the conveyor where the barcode printers are installed as being an area of crucial importance. Because space is often limited on packaging lines, the printheads often have to be installed very close to the exit of the case sealer. Some important factors are:

Carton Control – Proximity to the Printhead

It is important that after leaving the case sealer, the boxes are correctly presented the correct distance from the printheads. The drops of ink that are fired from the printheads can only travel a short distance while maintaining accuracy. If the box is too far away, print quality will decline and if so close it hits the printhead, damage might occur.

Be sure to control the boxes gently so that the boxes are undamaged as they pass through your packaging processes.

It’s best to use guide rails to accurately control the position of the box and even better use in conjunction with FoxJet’s retracting printhead brackets. This bracket uses a roller allow the printhead to be the correct distance from the box every time.

Product/Conveyor Speed

Ensure that boxes leaving your case sealer are traveling at a speed that is within the limits of your inkjet printer. Our FoxJet ProSeries printheads are able to print high-quality text, barcodes and images at up to 300ft per minute, which is enough for all but the fastest production lines.

Angel Hair

No, we are not talking pasta here! Some case sealing machines use hot melt adhesive to hold the flaps on the boxes closed. At times the adhesive applicators can leave a stringy residue behind that can get stuck to the printheads and block the tiny nozzles. Dust from the corrugated boxes can be bad too – be sure to regularly clean your packaging equipment and the printheads.

Vibrations

Good quality printing depends on the boxes being transferred smoothly past the printheads. Make sure your conveyor belt runs smoothly and that you are not dropping boxes onto the conveyor where the printheads are mounted. We’ve seen this happen and the results are not always pretty!

Best Practice of All

The best way to get the best labeling or coding for your shipping cases is to connect with your local ID Technology representative. With many years of experience, combined with the case packing, sealing and product handling of ProMach, we are able to help you determine the best solution for all your case coding or labeling needs.

Whitlam was founded in 1957. Since that time Whitlam has gone by a fundamental principle that we call our Core Values. Our Core Values define who we are and what we stand for.

One of Whitlam’s core values is to be kind and respectful. To us this means celebrating our similarities AND our differences. We show kindness by exhibit friendliness to everyone who walks through our door or who we meet. We have respect for each other, suppliers, customers and business partners. When someone has a difference of opinion, we listen to them and are open to what they have to say. Whitlam exhibits patience and a kind attitude. We show empathy by putting ourselves in other peoples shows.

Secondly, Whitlam exhibits honesty and integrity by taking pride in our work. Here at Whitlam we aren’t afraid of failure because we learn from our mistakes. At Whitlam we do what we say we will do, and we follow through. If someone asks us a question that we don’t know we aren’t afraid to do research or ask someone else for help until we know the answer.

Thirdly we try our best to go above and beyond. This includes:

Teamwork is our fourth core value. We encourage teamwork and demonstrate a willingness to help others. We lift each other up and work together to find the best solutions.  We make sure to communicate often and clearly. We are helpful to everyone, especially for those that are new. Often, we celebrate one another and our achievements.

As many of us like to say:

“It takes a Village”

All these core values show through in our last core value which is customer focus. Customer focus is one of our most important values because our customers are very important to us and we put our customers first. Whitlam display’s a true commitment to excellence. We create strong partnership with our customers and strive to be a good active listener that are open to new ideas and changes. With our open-mindedness we make sure we understand the needs of others. Our customers can see our core values shine through because not only do we treat each other with kindness, respect, honesty and integrity but we make sure we follow through and treat our customers the same. Whitlam is a family and our customers are part of our family.

With Whitlam’s core values we make sure that we add value wherever we go, and with whomever we meet. Using our technical knowledge and experience we make the tough stuff easy. If you would like more information about Whitlam please contact us today!

Solutions for Galvanic Corrosion

Array ( [post_title] => Solutions for Galvanic Corrosion [post_content] =>

When two dissimilar metals are brought into electrical contact, Galvanic Corrosion occurs. The electrical contact of these two metals changes their individual corrosion rates. One of the dissimilar metals corrodes faster than it normally would by itself, while the other dissimilar metal corrodes slower than it would by itself. 

There are different weathering environments that can cause galvanic corrosion such as water, heat, humidity and more.

Other factures besides weathering environments can also play into the effects that cause galvanic corrosion such as the way they are assembled, what metals are involved, and more.

A great example of Galvanic Corrosion is the Statue of Liberty. In the 1980s during a regular maintenance check revealed that corrosion had accrued between the copper outer skin and the wrought iron support structure.

Galvanic Corrosion can also occur with dissimilar metals on a vehicle. When you have a spare tire that is located under a vehicle, the spare tire is mounted in a heat resistant shield. That shield is then mounted to the frame under a vehicle. The heat resistant shield and frame of the vehicle are two different metals. The mount where these two are mounted together can develop galvanic corrosion. There are solutions to prevent galvanic corrosion from occurring.

Whitlam engineering team has developed various solutions to help eliminate galvanic corrosion. With our In-House lab and R&D team we can test products and come up with the best solution for your products need. At Whitlam our goal is to make the tough stuff easy.

Let us help you, contact us today for more information.

THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING

Array ( [post_title] => THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING [post_content] =>

When on demand printing is required, thermal-transfer printing is a great option.

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method. In this process the coating of a material called “ribbon” is melted onto another material such as paper.

Markets

Thermal-transfer printing can be used in many markets such as Healthcare, Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Food/Beverage, Automotive, Chemical, Industrial, Durable Goods, Electronics, and more.

Some different types of labels used in these markets include:

Two Factors

Print darkness and speed are the two factors that determine how a thermal-transfer label is printed. The print darkness tells the print head how much heat to use when burning the dots of the ribbon onto the material. The speed determines how fast the print head must heat up to burn the dots onto the material. Durability and quality are effect by print darkness and speed.

Three Components

Three components in thermal-transfer printing are: a non-movable print head, a ribbon (the ink), and material to be printed on. These three components sandwich the ribbon in the middle. When the print head heats up to a desired temperature, the print head melts the ribbon, in the form of dots, on to the material. Once the dot is transferred from the ribbon to the material it immediately cools down and by the time the material comes out of the printer the ink is dry.

Printers and Ribbons

There are different types of thermal-transfer printers that vary in durability, performance, and design capabilities. The ribbon used in these printers can be either wax, resin, or a combination of both. Ribbons can come in many different colors. Your choice of ribbon determines what material you can use. Different ribbons are used for different types of application and have different benefits. Durability and quality change based on the type of ribbon and printer used.

Labels printed on a thermal-transfer printer can be pre-printed with company logo or static information. Once a label is needed, the variable information can be printed on demand. Paper or synthetic materials can be used for the thermal-transfer printing process.

Some recommended paper materials include:

Some recommended synthetic materials include:

The print head along with the properties of the ribbon essentially produce a high-quality printed image. When durability and quality matter, thermal-transfer printing is a great solution. For more information contact Whitlam Group today!

When on demand printing is required, thermal-transfer printing is a great option.

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method. In this process the coating of a material called “ribbon” is melted onto another material such as paper.

Markets

Thermal-transfer printing can be used in many markets such as Healthcare, Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Food/Beverage, Automotive, Chemical, Industrial, Durable Goods, Electronics, and more.

Some different types of labels used in these markets include:

Two Factors

Print darkness and speed are the two factors that determine how a thermal-transfer label is printed. The print darkness tells the print head how much heat to use when burning the dots of the ribbon onto the material. The speed determines how fast the print head must heat up to burn the dots onto the material. Durability and quality are effect by print darkness and speed.

Three Components

Three components in thermal-transfer printing are: a non-movable print head, a ribbon (the ink), and material to be printed on. These three components sandwich the ribbon in the middle. When the print head heats up to a desired temperature, the print head melts the ribbon, in the form of dots, on to the material. Once the dot is transferred from the ribbon to the material it immediately cools down and by the time the material comes out of the printer the ink is dry.

Printers and Ribbons

There are different types of thermal-transfer printers that vary in durability, performance, and design capabilities. The ribbon used in these printers can be either wax, resin, or a combination of both. Ribbons can come in many different colors. Your choice of ribbon determines what material you can use. Different ribbons are used for different types of application and have different benefits. Durability and quality change based on the type of ribbon and printer used.

Labels printed on a thermal-transfer printer can be pre-printed with company logo or static information. Once a label is needed, the variable information can be printed on demand. Paper or synthetic materials can be used for the thermal-transfer printing process.

Some recommended paper materials include:

Some recommended synthetic materials include:

The print head along with the properties of the ribbon essentially produce a high-quality printed image. When durability and quality matter, thermal-transfer printing is a great solution. For more information contact Whitlam Group today!

COLD FOIL VS HOT FOIL

Array ( [post_title] => COLD FOIL VS HOT FOIL [post_content] =>

Integrating foil on your labels can draw consumers eyes to your product and take your brand to a more luxurious level. Cold foil transfer and hot stamping are two ways you can integrate foil onto your label design. 

The two main differences between cold foil and hot foil are the way they are applied and the materials which they can be applied to. Even though the appearance of hot foil and cold foil is slightly different, the difference is almost unrecognizable.

Cold Foil

Cold foil is applied by printing a UV-curable adhesive in the desired areas that you want the foil. Then foil is applied to the adhesive immediately, completely covering it. The foil is stripped away but remains only in the areas where the adhesive was applied. Lastly, the labels are run under a UV light to completely cure the adhesive. The process of removing the access foil from the label makes this method less suitable for designs with fine details.

Hot Foil

Hot foil requires a metal die or stamp. This metal die is made in reverse image of where the foil will be in the design. The metal die is mounted above the label on press and heated. The foil material runs between the mounted metal die and the label. The metal die stamps or presses down on the foil using the heat to apply the foil to the label. Hot foil can be used with other printing techniques like embossing and is a better technique to use with fine details.

Economics

Cold foil is more affordable and less costly as hot foil. The main price difference that make cold foil more affordable is the price of the metal die used for hot foil. Cold foil also can be done in a shorter timeline because metal dies can take about two weeks to receive. Another options that may be more affordable is printing your label on a metallic material instead of applying foil to a label. Even though the appearance of printing on metallic materials is different than applying a foil it can give the same appeal.

Make your products packaging stand out on store shelves by adding metallic paper or films, inks, or hot stamping/cold foiling to your label design. Contact Whitlam Group today and we can help engineer your label and find the best solution with your design.

Scratch Off

Array ( [post_title] => Scratch Off [post_content] =>

Everyone is familiar with scratch off cards and how they work. The fun begins when you purchase a scratch off card, and you know that there is a possibility that you may win an awesome prize. We all hope to be the winner, but the excitement involved in whether you will be the lucky winner is what makes scratch offs so much fun.

In today’s online society it is hard for businesses to keep customers visiting their stores. One marketing strategy that will help keep customer engaged, and make you memorable is promotional scratch off cards. Fun promotional items, like scratch off cards, can bring customer to your business. They allow shoppers to have fun while shopping.

How to get Started

Scratch offs don’t have to be in a card form. They can be in a label or tag form as well. They can include anything under the surface of the scratch off, including text, codes, images or barcodes. You can be as creative as your mind will allow. Here are some things to consider when designing your scratch off label.

  1. What kind of different promotions do you want to do and how many of each? (discounts, giveaways, etc.)
  2. When will your promotion run?
  3. How long will they have to redeem their prize?
  4. Will everyone be a winner?
  5. How will you hand out the scratch off labels?
  6. Do you want them to be labels, tags or cards?
  7. How many do you want to hand out and where?
  8. What other information do you want on your label besides the scratch off?
  9. What do you want the message of your label to say under and around the scratch off area?
  10. What kind of label specifications do you have? (size, substrate, color, etc.)

Scratch off messages can be as simple as “Winner” or “Try Again” and as complex as various longer messages or images. Here are some ideas for promotional scratch off labels:

  1. Size or quantity upgrade
  2. Money/percent off on product/service
  3. Free product/service
  4. Buy one, get one offers
  5. Complimentary service upgrade
  6. Free estimation on service

Scratch off cards can even be used internally to help build up employee moral or at company events. Here are some ideas for internal company use:

  1. Cash bonus
  2. Extra PTO time
  3. Giveaway prizes
  4. Lunch on the company
  5. Boss for a day

Labeling 20/20: A clear look at this year’s top trends

Array ( [post_title] => Labeling 20/20: A clear look at this year’s top trends [post_content] =>

As we focus our attention on 2020 and the coming years, it is more evident than ever that labeling is changing in a big way. To many, this should be no surprise as the nature of business itself has rapidly shifted with the addition of new technologies that are digitally transforming the way we work—from cloud infrastructure models to increasingly connected devices, as well as societal demands for greater consumer safety and organizational transparency.

To capture the state of labeling technology and where the industry is trending, here are five predictions that will not only impact 2020 but also countless years to come.

 

1. Integrations and migrations—the key to efficiency.

The evolution of labeling will be driven by broader information technology (IT) trends of digitization and modernization. These trends will encompass evolving technology and processes in solutions such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES). And many businesses will not only have to prepare for today but make their systems scalable and competitive for 10 years down the road.

When an enterprise updates its ERP, one result of this is that the organization must then modernize its labeling system, which often means implementing or migrating to a new standard and centralized global labeling solution. As changes to enterprise systems accelerate and new technology is adopted, a new pipeline of opportunities for label management or global labeling solutions is creating a watershed moment. This trend will likely speed up beyond 2020, and increasingly persist throughout the next decade.

One particular component involves cloud technology. According to recent Statista reports, the cloud ERP market revenue worldwide will jump to $40.5 billion in 2025. As a result of the rapid cloud adoption already underway, cloud labeling solutions are already operating in the field. This change is often not done all at once though and, many times, organizations place some elements on-premise, and components like printer drivers that generate printer command languages may still operate on local servers, even though they will likely migrate over to the cloud soon.

With the increase in cloud-based labeling, there will also be higher levels of cloud-to-cloud integration both in general business systems and with label management systems. This will reduce the complexity of the process for businesses and make label management more efficient and simpler.

2. Say hello to a simpler and connected IoT ecosystem.

Along with software, the hardware involved in labeling—such as printers—will also become more streamlined and modernized. For example, as mobile Windows computers are nearing end-of-life, many organizations are switching over to Android-based devices instead.

But it’s not just PCs—printers are also being standardized. Among the benefits, this requires fewer spare parts to stock, results in less unplanned downtime, streamlines operations and reduces admin work as well as the need for support for basic tasks like changing printer settings, loading media and training operators.

While many organizations are adopting a “less is more” mantra by standardizing their equipment, greater adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) devices is also drastically reshaping the hardware environment.

One report estimates that the manufacturing industry will spend $310 billion by 2023 on IoT and other Industry 4.0 products and services, and following this, the printers themselves will likely become increasingly connected. The technology making this possible has been available before, but the evolving market is now becoming advanced enough to take advantage of this, and over the coming decade, we will likely see businesses profiting from key benefits like driverless printers in the cloud.

 

3. One system to rule them all: The convergence of labeling and direct marking.

Historically, most label printing has been done with traditional thermal printing, while direct marking has typically involved continuous laser etching and inkjet printing. While many organizations have managed the two separately in the past, they are now converging to use one system for both technologies.

Supporting this transition is centralization through a label management system, which makes using one system to print both easier. Modern label management systems can interface with a range of direct marking and labeling printers, regardless of manufacturer. This interoperability will prevent discarding products, reworking of labels or large upfront capital expenditures on products that won’t integrate with other systems.

4. RFID goes mainstream.

The apparel and garment sectors have already become a hotbed for radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. But in 2020, you can expect to see greater adoption from others as well. It’s clear why: Among the benefits, RFID can streamline operations by providing greater visibility and immediate insights into inventory. Don’t just take my word for it—a recent Future Market Insight report estimates that the global RFID market will grow 14.5% annually from 2018 to 2028.   

 

5. Stricter regulations (and a simple solution).

As times change and governments and consumers alike try to ensure safety and protect consumer rights, regulations around accurate packaging will undoubtedly get amended. Following this trend, labeling regulation across countless industries has become more stringent. This will surely continue into 2020 and beyond.

It’s especially evident in the pharmaceutical industry, where organizations must adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices, as well as local regulations, and in the Food and Beverage space, where new nutritional facts guidelines will be enforced by the Food and Drug Administration by 2020 (or 2021 depending on business size), the rules around allergen labeling are being tested with instances like Illinois adding sesame as a recognized allergen, and controversies over how meat substances should be labeled are changing regulations.

Adding to this, we are seeing new international regulations that will impact organizations that operate around the globe. For instance, Russia is introducing serialization requirements on everything from fur to pharmaceuticals and the European Union will introduce new medical device regulations in May 2020. In a time when mergers and acquisitions are rife and many businesses are reaching a global level, international businesses will have to customize their labeling by location to comply and keep up with these regulations.

To protect consumers and account for changing regulations, businesses will need to ensure their labeling is completely accurate, not only for compliance but for the public’s trust in their brand. Again, this will push organizations to adopt a label management system that provides a reliable method to maintain compliant and accurate labeling.

 

Looking to the future

Already, 2020 is shaping up to be a compelling year for label management and the entire labeling industry. Trends like stricter regulation will continue to challenge organizations and the growth of RFID will continue to speed up. All the while, movements towards modernization, digital transformation, the adoption of cloud technology, and increasingly connected hardware will have a dramatic impact on labeling and are propelling the industry into the future, today.

As a result of the rapid cloud adoption already underway, cloud labeling solutions are already operating in the field. This change is often not done all at once though and, many times, organizations place some elements on-premise, and components like printer drivers that generate printer command languages may still operate on local servers, even though they will likely migrate over to the cloud soon.

With the increase in cloud-based labeling, there will also be higher levels of cloud-to-cloud integration both in general business systems and with label management systems. This will reduce the complexity of the process for businesses and make label management more efficient and simpler.

2. Say hello to a simpler and connected IoT ecosystem.

Along with software, the hardware involved in labeling—such as printers—will also become more streamlined and modernized. For example, as mobile Windows computers are nearing end-of-life, many organizations are switching over to Android-based devices instead.

But it’s not just PCs—printers are also being standardized. Among the benefits, this requires fewer spare parts to stock, results in less unplanned downtime, streamlines operations and reduces admin work as well as the need for support for basic tasks like changing printer settings, loading media and training operators.

While many organizations are adopting a “less is more” mantra by standardizing their equipment, greater adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) devices is also drastically reshaping the hardware environment.

One report estimates that the manufacturing industry will spend $310 billion by 2023 on IoT and other Industry 4.0 products and services, and following this, the printers themselves will likely become increasingly connected. The technology making this possible has been available before, but the evolving market is now becoming advanced enough to take advantage of this, and over the coming decade, we will likely see businesses profiting from key benefits like driverless printers in the cloud.

 

3. One system to rule them all: The convergence of labeling and direct marking.

Historically, most label printing has been done with traditional thermal printing, while direct marking has typically involved continuous laser etching and inkjet printing. While many organizations have managed the two separately in the past, they are now converging to use one system for both technologies.

Supporting this transition is centralization through a label management system, which makes using one system to print both easier. Modern label management systems can interface with a range of direct marking and labeling printers, regardless of manufacturer. This interoperability will prevent discarding products, reworking of labels or large upfront capital expenditures on products that won’t integrate with other systems.

4. RFID goes mainstream.

The apparel and garment sectors have already become a hotbed for radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. But in 2020, you can expect to see greater adoption from others as well. It’s clear why: Among the benefits, RFID can streamline operations by providing greater visibility and immediate insights into inventory. Don’t just take my word for it—a recent Future Market Insight report estimates that the global RFID market will grow 14.5% annually from 2018 to 2028.   

 

5. Stricter regulations (and a simple solution).

As times change and governments and consumers alike try to ensure safety and protect consumer rights, regulations around accurate packaging will undoubtedly get amended. Following this trend, labeling regulation across countless industries has become more stringent. This will surely continue into 2020 and beyond.

It’s especially evident in the pharmaceutical industry, where organizations must adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices, as well as local regulations, and in the Food and Beverage space, where new nutritional facts guidelines will be enforced by the Food and Drug Administration by 2020 (or 2021 depending on business size), the rules around allergen labeling are being tested with instances like Illinois adding sesame as a recognized allergen, and controversies over how meat substances should be labeled are changing regulations.

Adding to this, we are seeing new international regulations that will impact organizations that operate around the globe. For instance, Russia is introducing serialization requirements on everything from fur to pharmaceuticals and the European Union will introduce new medical device regulations in May 2020. In a time when mergers and acquisitions are rife and many businesses are reaching a global level, international businesses will have to customize their labeling by location to comply and keep up with these regulations.

To protect consumers and account for changing regulations, businesses will need to ensure their labeling is completely accurate, not only for compliance but for the public’s trust in their brand. Again, this will push organizations to adopt a label management system that provides a reliable method to maintain compliant and accurate labeling.

 

Looking to the future

Already, 2020 is shaping up to be a compelling year for label management and the entire labeling industry. Trends like stricter regulation will continue to challenge organizations and the growth of RFID will continue to speed up. All the while, movements towards modernization, digital transformation, the adoption of cloud technology, and increasingly connected hardware will have a dramatic impact on labeling and are propelling the industry into the future, today.

As we focus our attention on 2020 and the coming years, it is more evident than ever that labeling is changing in a big way. To many, this should be no surprise as the nature of business itself has rapidly shifted with the addition of new technologies that are digitally transforming the way we work—from cloud infrastructure models to increasingly connected devices, as well as societal demands for greater consumer safety and organizational transparency.

To capture the state of labeling technology and where the industry is trending, here are five predictions that will not only impact 2020 but also countless years to come.

 

1. Integrations and migrations—the key to efficiency.

The evolution of labeling will be driven by broader information technology (IT) trends of digitization and modernization. These trends will encompass evolving technology and processes in solutions such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES). And many businesses will not only have to prepare for today but make their systems scalable and competitive for 10 years down the road.

When an enterprise updates its ERP, one result of this is that the organization must then modernize its labeling system, which often means implementing or migrating to a new standard and centralized global labeling solution. As changes to enterprise systems accelerate and new technology is adopted, a new pipeline of opportunities for label management or global labeling solutions is creating a watershed moment. This trend will likely speed up beyond 2020, and increasingly persist throughout the next decade.

One particular component involves cloud technology. According to recent Statista reports, the cloud ERP market revenue worldwide will jump to $40.5 billion in 2025. As a result of the rapid cloud adoption already underway, cloud labeling solutions are already operating in the field. This change is often not done all at once though and, many times, organizations place some elements on-premise, and components like printer drivers that generate printer command languages may still operate on local servers, even though they will likely migrate over to the cloud soon.

Open design of premade pouch filler/sealer simplifies cleaning

Array ( [post_title] => Open design of premade pouch filler/sealer simplifies cleaning [post_content] =>

For food packagers that require flexible packaging, the Triangle/JDD Rotary Pouch Machine provides an automated method for filling and sealing premade pouches. The filler, from vertical form-fill-seal machinery manufacturer Triangle Package Machinery Co. and JDD Packaging Ltd., features an open machine design for proper sanitation and maintenance.

The system is compatible with Doyen-style bags, three-side seal pouches and stand-up pouches. Packagers can also switch between various film structures, including foil.

Application examples include granola, snacks, candy, nuts, powders and fresh, frozen or dried produce. Depending on the product, the filler uses either a Triangle InLine Combination Weigher or other scale or auger to fill pouches. Standard features include an integrated date coder and a pouch shaker to settle product.

The filler, which features tool-less changeover, can store up to 48 recipes and run multiple pouch sizes. A “no fill/no seal” feature reduces product and pouch waste by not dispensing product into pouches that haven’t opened; those pouches also bypass the machine’s sealing station.

The easy-to-operate filler comes in two models—Model JRPM-8812 and JRPM-81215—and delivers filling speeds of up to 50 pouches per minute.

See the new Triangle/JDD Rotary Pouch Machine in person at WestPack 2020 (Feb. 11-13; Anaheim, CA) in Triangle Package Machinery Co. Booth 5061.

For food packagers that require flexible packaging, the Triangle/JDD Rotary Pouch Machine provides an automated method for filling and sealing premade pouches. The filler, from vertical form-fill-seal machinery manufacturer Triangle Package Machinery Co. and JDD Packaging Ltd., features an open machine design for proper sanitation and maintenance.

The system is compatible with Doyen-style bags, three-side seal pouches and stand-up pouches. Packagers can also switch between various film structures, including foil.

Application examples include granola, snacks, candy, nuts, powders and fresh, frozen or dried produce. Depending on the product, the filler uses either a Triangle InLine Combination Weigher or other scale or auger to fill pouches. Standard features include an integrated date coder and a pouch shaker to settle product.

The filler, which features tool-less changeover, can store up to 48 recipes and run multiple pouch sizes. A “no fill/no seal” feature reduces product and pouch waste by not dispensing product into pouches that haven’t opened; those pouches also bypass the machine’s sealing station.

The easy-to-operate filler comes in two models—Model JRPM-8812 and JRPM-81215—and delivers filling speeds of up to 50 pouches per minute.

Rotary thermoformer saves floor space in medical cleanrooms

Array ( [post_title] => Rotary thermoformer saves floor space in medical cleanrooms [post_content] =>

The rotary design of the SP-32-20 Thermoformer from Shawpak, a division of Riverside Medical Packaging Co., enables medical packagers and others to significantly reduce their thermoforming footprint and boost automation efficiencies.

The thermoformer can be used to form, fill and seal rigid and flexible blisters and to produce flat, four-side seal sachets and three-side seal premade pouches.

Featuring a compact vertical carousel instead of a linear design, the machine is both space- and energy-efficient. In cleanroom applications, the thermoformer’s footprint is less than 1.5 cubic meters, versus 4 to 12 linear meters for a conventional thermoformer.

Designed without clip chains, the machine eliminates trim, which translates into reduced materials waste. It features fast, simple changeover and can accommodate multiple web widths on a single machine.

The thermoformer features a flat, open surface that can be accessed from multiple sides for ease of loading, either manually, automatically or semi-automatically. In addition, the thermoformer costs 30% to 40% less than conventional machines, according to the manufacturer.

Perdue chooses dissolvable foam for ecommerce packaging

Array ( [post_title] => Perdue chooses dissolvable foam for ecommerce packaging [post_content] =>

Perdue Farms sells chicken and other meats, but when the company recently launched an ecommerce channel, it turned to plant-based foam to boost its sustainable packaging game. Made from non-genetically modified organism (non-GMO) cornstarch, the foam in Perdue’s ecommerce shippers provides product insulation and can be disposed of via composting or dissolving in water.

KTM Industries Inc. supplies Perdue Farms with the insulating material, called Green Cell Foam.The foam can be commercially or residentially composted—or, it can be dissolved and washed down a kitchen drain. Consumers can even place the foam in a bucket of water, let it dissolve overnight and then use the mixture to water plants.

To further reduce the carbon footprint of its ecommerce operation, Perdue makes a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation for every order it ships. Consumers also receive a reusable grocery bag and a pollinator seed packet with each order. The company’s corrugated shippers are recyclable, as well.

A reusable tote is also sent to Perdue's ecommerce customers.

 

Some early reports from mainstream media about Perdue’s sustainable ecommerce packaging implied that the company is using the dissolvable foam for meat trays, but that is not the case.

“We use the water-soluble, compostable Green Cell Foam as insulation inside the cardboard boxes,” says David Zucker, senior vice president of ecommerce and new ventures for Perdue Farms. “The base ingredient of this foam is cornstarch. It replaces what would normally be a Styrofoam cooler commonly used in perishable shipping.”

He adds, “The actual packaging around the products is our standard packaging that meets United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requirements for food safety. The cardboard box is packed with the Green Cell Foam as an insulating liner, then the products go inside it with dry ice or frozen packs to keep the products at the appropriate temperature during shipping.”

Zucker answers additional questions from Packaging Digest about Perdue’s new ecommerce operation and packaging.

 

When did Perdue’s ecommerce site launch?

Zucker: We conducted a soft launch late last year and a full launch to the general public on Mon., Jan. 6, 2020. Consumers who sign up for email alerts from PerdueFarms.com will receive 10% off their first order!

 

Are the ecommerce products all shipped frozen?

Zucker: The site will initially offer a selection of about 100 items across some of our most popular brands, including Perdue, Niman Ranch and Coleman Natural, with plans to add additional offerings over time, as demand increases. All products are shipped frozen.

 

What types of primary packages are shipped in the ecommerce shippers?

Zucker: Product packaging for our ecommerce items is the same standard, food-safe, USDA-approved packaging that you’d find in retail.

 

Are all the ecommerce packaging components recyclable or compostable?

Zucker: The shipment packaging for our ecommerce orders is all recyclable or compostable. The cardboard box is recyclable, and the insulating foam is compostable or dissolvable. The actual packaging that encases the products themselves is our standard, USDA-approved, food-safe packaging, much of which is recyclable.

Each order from our ecommerce website will also arrive with a recyclable, reusable shopping tote and a packet of bee- and butterfly-friendly seeds for consumers to plant in their yards or elsewhere around their communities to help the local pollinator population flourish.

Additionally, with each sale through our website, we will make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation to help offset our carbon footprint that will equate to removing more than 70 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere (the equivalent of 4,250 smartphone charges).

 

How is Perdue communicating to consumers how they can recycle or compost the packaging components?

Zucker: Each recyclable material is indicated with the standard marks to indicate its grade of “recyclability.” We also have information on our website that describes the Green Cell Foam in particular.

 

Did the ecommerce site’s launch mark the beginning of Perdue’s use of compostable, dissolvable foam?

Zucker: Yes, our ecommerce channel is the first place we are using this compostable foam insulation for shipping.

 

Does the consumer need to remove the plastic film encasing the foam prior to dissolving or composting the foam?

Zucker: Yes. Since the foam is water-soluble, the thin plastic around it protects it from any moisture from the products, weather or other packing materials in the shipment.

[Note: According to KTM Industries, the low-density polyethylene (LDPE) film is recyclable with #4-coded plastics.]

 

What are the sustainability impacts of using water to dissolve the Green Cell Foam in the home? Does it take a lot of water to dissolve?

Zucker: The foam can be either rinsed down a sink or composted. A video showing how it can be washed down a kitchen sink can be found at the bottom of this web page.

 

 

Is Perdue looking at ways to use Green Cell Foam for retail sales, either in shipments to retailers or possibly in primary packaging?

Zucker: We’re constantly seeking new and better ways to reduce our environmental impact as a company. As we get traction with our new ecommerce site, we’ll certainly have learnings and will explore if there are opportunities to expand the benefits even further across our supply chain.

 

How have consumers reacted to Perdue’s sustainable ecommerce packaging, particularly the Green Cell Foam?

Zucker: We’ve received many positive comments from consumers regarding the use of this compostable foam insulation.

We have specific targets that we’re constantly working toward as a company, one being our goal to reduce our greenhouse gas intensity by 30% by 2022. The decision to use recyclable material in our ecommerce shipping materials, including the compostable foam insulation, is one of many steps we’re taking throughout our supply chain to help us achieve these targets.

How is Perdue communicating to consumers how they can recycle or compost the packaging components?

Zucker: Each recyclable material is indicated with the standard marks to indicate its grade of “recyclability.” We also have information on our website that describes the Green Cell Foam in particular.

 

Did the ecommerce site’s launch mark the beginning of Perdue’s use of compostable, dissolvable foam?

Zucker: Yes, our ecommerce channel is the first place we are using this compostable foam insulation for shipping.

 

Does the consumer need to remove the plastic film encasing the foam prior to dissolving or composting the foam?

Zucker: Yes. Since the foam is water-soluble, the thin plastic around it protects it from any moisture from the products, weather or other packing materials in the shipment.

[Note: According to KTM Industries, the low-density polyethylene (LDPE) film is recyclable with #4-coded plastics.]

 

What are the sustainability impacts of using water to dissolve the Green Cell Foam in the home? Does it take a lot of water to dissolve?

Zucker: The foam can be either rinsed down a sink or composted. A video showing how it can be washed down a kitchen sink can be found at the bottom of this web page.

 

 

Is Perdue looking at ways to use Green Cell Foam for retail sales, either in shipments to retailers or possibly in primary packaging?

Zucker: We’re constantly seeking new and better ways to reduce our environmental impact as a company. As we get traction with our new ecommerce site, we’ll certainly have learnings and will explore if there are opportunities to expand the benefits even further across our supply chain.

 

How have consumers reacted to Perdue’s sustainable ecommerce packaging, particularly the Green Cell Foam?

Zucker: We’ve received many positive comments from consumers regarding the use of this compostable foam insulation.

We have specific targets that we’re constantly working toward as a company, one being our goal to reduce our greenhouse gas intensity by 30% by 2022. The decision to use recyclable material in our ecommerce shipping materials, including the compostable foam insulation, is one of many steps we’re taking throughout our supply chain to help us achieve these targets.

Perdue Farms sells chicken and other meats, but when the company recently launched an ecommerce channel, it turned to plant-based foam to boost its sustainable packaging game. Made from non-genetically modified organism (non-GMO) cornstarch, the foam in Perdue’s ecommerce shippers provides product insulation and can be disposed of via composting or dissolving in water.

KTM Industries Inc. supplies Perdue Farms with the insulating material, called Green Cell Foam.The foam can be commercially or residentially composted—or, it can be dissolved and washed down a kitchen drain. Consumers can even place the foam in a bucket of water, let it dissolve overnight and then use the mixture to water plants.

To further reduce the carbon footprint of its ecommerce operation, Perdue makes a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation for every order it ships. Consumers also receive a reusable grocery bag and a pollinator seed packet with each order. The company’s corrugated shippers are recyclable, as well.

A reusable tote is also sent to Perdue's ecommerce customers.

 

Some early reports from mainstream media about Perdue’s sustainable ecommerce packaging implied that the company is using the dissolvable foam for meat trays, but that is not the case.

“We use the water-soluble, compostable Green Cell Foam as insulation inside the cardboard boxes,” says David Zucker, senior vice president of ecommerce and new ventures for Perdue Farms. “The base ingredient of this foam is cornstarch. It replaces what would normally be a Styrofoam cooler commonly used in perishable shipping.”

He adds, “The actual packaging around the products is our standard packaging that meets United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requirements for food safety. The cardboard box is packed with the Green Cell Foam as an insulating liner, then the products go inside it with dry ice or frozen packs to keep the products at the appropriate temperature during shipping.”

Zucker answers additional questions from Packaging Digest about Perdue’s new ecommerce operation and packaging.

 

When did Perdue’s ecommerce site launch?

Zucker: We conducted a soft launch late last year and a full launch to the general public on Mon., Jan. 6, 2020. Consumers who sign up for email alerts from PerdueFarms.com will receive 10% off their first order!

 

Are the ecommerce products all shipped frozen?

Zucker: The site will initially offer a selection of about 100 items across some of our most popular brands, including Perdue, Niman Ranch and Coleman Natural, with plans to add additional offerings over time, as demand increases. All products are shipped frozen.

 

What types of primary packages are shipped in the ecommerce shippers?

Zucker: Product packaging for our ecommerce items is the same standard, food-safe, USDA-approved packaging that you’d find in retail.

 

Are all the ecommerce packaging components recyclable or compostable?

Zucker: The shipment packaging for our ecommerce orders is all recyclable or compostable. The cardboard box is recyclable, and the insulating foam is compostable or dissolvable. The actual packaging that encases the products themselves is our standard, USDA-approved, food-safe packaging, much of which is recyclable.

Each order from our ecommerce website will also arrive with a recyclable, reusable shopping tote and a packet of bee- and butterfly-friendly seeds for consumers to plant in their yards or elsewhere around their communities to help the local pollinator population flourish.

Additionally, with each sale through our website, we will make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation to help offset our carbon footprint that will equate to removing more than 70 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere (the equivalent of 4,250 smartphone charges).

While not quite controversial, the results of our first poll on the viability of using voice-assistants to help monitor or control packaging machines or a packaging line were surprising.

Our 2017 survey results showed that 70% of potential users at brand owner companies were open to it. But only 50% of packaging machinery manufacturers saw promise in voice assistants for their machines or for packaging lines.

I first thought of the idea of using this technology in packaging production applications three years ago and talked with several packaging machinery manufacturers while I was at interpack 2017 to get their take, which was mixed.

As we’re coming up on another triennial interpack show, I wanted to re-poll the packaging community to see what, if any, shifts in acceptance have happened over the last several years. Has my idea taken hold??

6 food and beverage packaging trends that will dominate 2020

Like any good design, consumer packaging tells a story. It communicates what a product is, who it’s for, and helps to communicate a brand’s value proposition. But in the highly competitive—and increasingly saturated—food and beverage product landscape, where countless new offerings hit shelves each week, just standing out among the crowd is tougher than ever.

In recent years, this cut-throat competition has prompted F&B brands to experiment with many innovative approaches to packaging design, both aesthetically and functionally, and 2020 will pick up right where 2019 left off.

Here are a few of the hottest trends our designers expect will dominate food and beverage packaging in the year ahead.

1. Metamorphoses

As the name implies, metamorphoses is where one design element goes through a transformation into another, creating an optical illusion that adds visual interest and draws consumers in to view the more intricate details of the packaging.

Already picking up steam throughout 2019, we predict brands will increasingly embrace this artistic, avant garde trend in packaging as a way to make a statement and stand apart from the competition.

CLICK NEXT: Maximalism

2. Maximalism and rich, heavily detailed packaging

With many economic experts predicting a global slowdown on the horizon, we expect (and are already seeing on our platform) more consumers seeking a sense of opulence, luxury and extravagance in their products. That’s why maximalism in packaging design is poised to be all the rage in the upcoming year. What’s emerging is more luxurious, more attention-grabbing, intense, richer colors, full of details.

CLICK NEXT: Retro-futurism, wha?!

3. Retro-futurism

Retro-futurism sounds like an oxymoron. However, actually, the combination of design elements evoking nostalgia (retro) and positive anticipation (futurism) can actually work very well together.

In 2020, we expect to see packaging designers using the current gradient trend as a jumping-off point for creating packaging that pairs both futuristic and retro design elements to create remarkable designs that will appeal to a variety of consumers.

 

CLICK NEXT: Eco-aware packaging

4. Ecologically-aware packaging

With most agreeing that we’re diving into a full-blown climate crisis, marketers are increasingly driven to seek out more ecological, plastic-free packaging alternatives to current packaging materials.

In the year ahead, expect brands to start exploring the use of more eco-friendly materials in their packaging, moving towards packaging that’s easily recyclable, minimizing the amount of materials necessary for their packaging design or even forgoing packaging altogether.

 

CLICK NEXT: Transparent packaging

5. Transparent packaging

Using transparent packaging that shows off a product’s color is already popular within the beauty and skincare sector, and in 2020, we expect to see a surge of this trend in food and beverage packaging as well. Layering design elements of transparent materials and using the drink or food product’s color as a design feature allows designers to add contrast and make those elements pop once the brand’s product is poured into it.

This trend is a win-win: It allows brands to take a more minimal approach to the design process, but also places the product itself front and center of the customer experience without compromising on visual impact.

6. Neatly structured layouts

This packaging trend is focused on how a brand’s selected typography is used within the broader design.

Text, which is typically comprised of a variety of unique and interesting font combinations, is separated by clear lines that divide the space into neat and balanced spaces, making for easy readability and a sense of structure that appeals to consumers and allows designers to take a more minimalistic approach to the rest of the design.

With many economic experts predicting a global slowdown on the horizon, we expect (and are already seeing on our platform) more consumers seeking a sense of opulence, luxury and extravagance in their products. That’s why maximalism in packaging design is poised to be all the rage in the upcoming year. What’s emerging is more luxurious, more attention-grabbing, intense, richer colors, full of details.

3. Retro-futurism

Retro-futurism sounds like an oxymoron. However, actually, the combination of design elements evoking nostalgia (retro) and positive anticipation (futurism) can actually work very well together.

In 2020, we expect to see packaging designers using the current gradient trend as a jumping-off point for creating packaging that pairs both futuristic and retro design elements to create remarkable designs that will appeal to a variety of consumers.

4. Ecologically-aware packaging

With most agreeing that we’re diving into a full-blown climate crisis, marketers are increasingly driven to seek out more ecological, plastic-free packaging alternatives to current packaging materials.

In the year ahead, expect brands to start exploring the use of more eco-friendly materials in their packaging, moving towards packaging that’s easily recyclable, minimizing the amount of materials necessary for their packaging design or even forgoing packaging altogether.

5. Transparent packaging

Using transparent packaging that shows off a product’s color is already popular within the beauty and skincare sector, and in 2020, we expect to see a surge of this trend in food and beverage packaging as well. Layering design elements of transparent materials and using the drink or food product’s color as a design feature allows designers to add contrast and make those elements pop once the brand’s product is poured into it.

This trend is a win-win: It allows brands to take a more minimal approach to the design process, but also places the product itself front and center of the customer experience without compromising on visual impact.

Like any good design, consumer packaging tells a story. It communicates what a product is, who it’s for, and helps to communicate a brand’s value proposition. But in the highly competitive—and increasingly saturated—food and beverage product landscape, where countless new offerings hit shelves each week, just standing out among the crowd is tougher than ever.

In recent years, this cut-throat competition has prompted F&B brands to experiment with many innovative approaches to packaging design, both aesthetically and functionally, and 2020 will pick up right where 2019 left off.

Here are a few of the hottest trends our designers expect will dominate food and beverage packaging in the year ahead.

1. Metamorphoses

As the name implies, metamorphoses is where one design element goes through a transformation into another, creating an optical illusion that adds visual interest and draws consumers in to view the more intricate details of the packaging.

Already picking up steam throughout 2019, we predict brands will increasingly embrace this artistic, avant garde trend in packaging as a way to make a statement and stand apart from the competition.

7 things to know about the remarkable Smart Cups

Array ( [post_title] => 7 things to know about the remarkable Smart Cups [post_content] =>

Created to be sustainably optimized, the world’s first printed—and waterless in shipment—beverages are energized for new products, packaging and markets.

Chris Kanik’s career path is, as everyone’s, a unique one, but his is singularly remarkable. For one thing, he may be the only person to start working in an American Chemical Society lab at age 12 and years later, after relocating from New York City, enjoy a stint as a stand-up comedian in California.

Kanik’s one-of-a-kind path continues as first an inventor and now chief excitement officer, aka founder and CEO, for Smart Cups, based in Mission Viejo, CA. The namesake product is based on patented technology for one-of-a-kind cups printed with functional ingredients that consumers add water to at the point of use.

Here are seven noteable aspects of Smart Cups’ past, present and future.

 

1. Humble, yet explosively productive, beginnings.

The idea for Smart Cups was sparked by a margarita, specifically due to Kanik’s impatience awaiting the drink’s arrival from a too-busy server at Taco Tuesday circa 2010.

Kanik recalls thinking, “Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could just add ingredients to my cup of water ala Crystal Light and make my own drink?” On a napkin he jotted down the basic protocols that led to in-home experimentation using Everclear and filters.

While he succeeded in blowing up his kitchen, Kanik also created three different flavors of powdered alcohol.

In 2012/2013, he partnered with an inventor to develop a patented delivery system based on printed technology that permits the printing of ingredients on a substrate.

That’s when they realized that the government would never allow a rehydratable alcohol drink into market. Kanik proceeded down a different path and, today, has overseas operations in a 23,000-sq-ft facility with 16 employees.

 

2. The relaunch of proof-of-concept energy drinks.

Smart Cups have been in the market since December 2017 when they were introduced in six flavors, all of which were taken out of circulation over the past months.

Smart Cups were relaunched in October 2019 with what Kanik claims are better-tasting flavors: berry blast, tropical punch and green tea lemon and the most popular, raspberry lemonade.

Kanik considers the line of energy drinks as a proof-of-concept rather than the best version of the technology.

“It’s not that I loved energy drinks,” he tells Packaging Digest, “but because I wanted to prove the functionality and versatility of the technology—that we can print caffeine, amino acids, vitamins inside a cup. A short time after adding water, the user has an energy drink.”

Kanik entered the mainstream beverage market because it was viewed as the easiest path to  commercial acceptance.

 

3. Waterless advantages.

Smart Cups’ fundamental advantage versus standard drinks is the sharp reduction of storage and transportation requirements. Kanik explains that a truck that delivers 96,000 12-oz beverage cans now deliver 1.2 million units of that beverage in Smart Cups and with a significant weight reduction.

Having the ingredients in dry encapsulated form particularly for sensitive functional formulations protects against microbial growth while greatly improving shelf life.

“We continue to work on extending that,” adds Kanik.

Notably, the Smart Cups manufacturing process uses no water.

 

4. Processing, manufacturing and upgrades.

From a regulatory view, Smart Cups’ patented formulation uses only ingredients generally recognized as safe, or GRAS. At the heart of the patent and printable aspect is a food-safe polymer that protects the ingredients within that activates and dissolves in contact with a liquid, presumably water. The products dissolve in 45 to 90 seconds.

Kanik says the entire two-part process of chemistry/formulation followed by manufacturing is critical to their success.

As for the printing, Kanik will only acknowledge that “it’s not technically 3D printing” as some have surmised. “We built all our manufacturing equipment from scratch, and it takes a lot of art in addition to the science,” he adds.

Output has grown from making batches of 50 to 100 in the lab to thousands in the plant, a capability that will further be “tremendously increased by mid-2020” through automation upgrades.

Sold only online at the company website and at Amazon, the cups are available in two multipack sizes: 5- and 10-pack pouches made of a moisture-resistant, heat-sealed polyfilm pouch with press-to-close reseal that retail for $11.99 and $15.99 respectively; the latter works out to about $1.60 per energy drink, Kanik points out.

The 9-oz serving size makes for faster consumption versus the industry standard 12-oz size, but users can dilute to whatever strength they prefer—it’s the labeled dosage regardless of dilution, he says.

The company is expanding the printing technology to include the interior cup sides as well. “That provides more surface to increase the flavor profile and allows for more complex formulations,” Kanik says.

Now made of PLA, next-generation Smart Cups may include recycled paper, edible materials and hot beverages.

 

5. PLA cups for now, but next…

The cups, which serve as container and ingredient carrier, are made of polylactic acid (PLA) and supplied by Fabri-Kal, preprinted with the brand logo and related information.

“I didn’t want a typical plastic and we weren’t ready to use paper,” explains Kanik of the decision. “Consumers needed to see and experience the Smart Cups in action.” Note that the  photos are of actual Smart Cups.

Now the company is considering other substrate options.

“We can print onto virtually any surface, recycled paper, edible materials…you name it, we can print on it,” he offers. “We could print coffee complete with flavor, sweetener and creamer.”

That would require hydration using hot water reconstitution for which PLA is unsuitable, so Kanik would look into recyclable paper cups.

Other cup sizes are on the table as well.

 

6. The model—and a demographic shock.

Smart Cups’ direct-to-consumer business model was done primarily because Kanik wanted to understand the consumer mindset.

“It’s a technology that has not existed so we’re creating awareness and education as well as creating new brand with no footprint or track record, but asking consumers to trust us and buy it.

“We’re creating a completely new consumer behavior,” he says. “With a can or bottle, the consumer perceives a value based on the product’s weight. With Smart Cups you’re holding an empty cup.”

The energy drinks’ target were on a core demographic of males aged 18 to 35 as was the company’s marketing support.

Six months later, Kanik received a shock about their actual customers.

“I found that 98% of sales were from females age 25 to 45 predominately from the Midwest and South,” he says. “Now we’re increasing our demographic as more males adopt it.”

The product and its unique technology have drawn the interest Kanik hoped they would.

“We made splash with something new and companies came to me,” he reports, including in licensing the technology. Kanik will consider those existing options and new ones in the coming months. “It will be a very exciting time for us,” he states.

 

7. Beyond energy drinks and beverages.

“We’ve had continual growth, but I’m excited about the next 18 months as we make a big push in diversifying our product offerings,” says Kanik. Smart Cups’ upcoming beverage category offerings include kids’ beverages, electrolytes, coffees, teas and even alcohol beverages.

The range of categories is expansive and far afield of drinks.

“We have a rich pipeline of innovative ideas from cosmetics to food to industrial cleaners to prescription and over-the-counter drugs,” he states.

Potential markets include hospitals, stadiums, schools and cafeterias.

“Instead of apple juice, kids could have a range of calcium and vitamin fortified drinks,” he says. “Any application where the reduction of transportation and storage requirements are advantageous.”

Those include humanitarian endeavors throughout the world.

“I always knew that the tech presented storage and transportation advantages, but I didn’t realize how important that really is to the world—it’s really shocking the limitations in sharing resources across the globe,” Kanik reports. “An airplane can only get so many supplies to a relief area in Africa, this technology will greatly improve that.

“That’s the thing I’m most passionate about it. I got into this to make a difference in the world—and Smart Cups is the technology that can do that.”

Kanik will be speaking at The Packaging Conference, Feb. 3-5, at the AT&T Conference Center, Austin, TX, and will feature new plastic and packaging technology for sustainability.

The idea for Smart Cups was sparked by a margarita, specifically due to Kanik’s impatience awaiting the drink’s arrival from a too-busy server at Taco Tuesday circa 2010.

Kanik recalls thinking, “Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could just add ingredients to my cup of water ala Crystal Light and make my own drink?” On a napkin he jotted down the basic protocols that led to in-home experimentation using Everclear and filters.

While he succeeded in blowing up his kitchen, Kanik also created three different flavors of powdered alcohol.

In 2012/2013, he partnered with an inventor to develop a patented delivery system based on printed technology that permits the printing of ingredients on a substrate.

That’s when they realized that the government would never allow a rehydratable alcohol drink into market. Kanik proceeded down a different path and, today, has overseas operations in a 23,000-sq-ft facility with 16 employees.

 

2. The relaunch of proof-of-concept energy drinks.

Smart Cups have been in the market since December 2017 when they were introduced in six flavors, all of which were taken out of circulation over the past months.

Smart Cups were relaunched in October 2019 with what Kanik claims are better-tasting flavors: berry blast, tropical punch and green tea lemon and the most popular, raspberry lemonade.

Kanik considers the line of energy drinks as a proof-of-concept rather than the best version of the technology.

“It’s not that I loved energy drinks,” he tells Packaging Digest, “but because I wanted to prove the functionality and versatility of the technology—that we can print caffeine, amino acids, vitamins inside a cup. A short time after adding water, the user has an energy drink.”

Kanik entered the mainstream beverage market because it was viewed as the easiest path to  commercial acceptance.

 

3. Waterless advantages.

Smart Cups’ fundamental advantage versus standard drinks is the sharp reduction of storage and transportation requirements. Kanik explains that a truck that delivers 96,000 12-oz beverage cans now deliver 1.2 million units of that beverage in Smart Cups and with a significant weight reduction.

Having the ingredients in dry encapsulated form particularly for sensitive functional formulations protects against microbial growth while greatly improving shelf life.

“We continue to work on extending that,” adds Kanik.

Notably, the Smart Cups manufacturing process uses no water.

 

4. Processing, manufacturing and upgrades.

From a regulatory view, Smart Cups’ patented formulation uses only ingredients generally recognized as safe, or GRAS. At the heart of the patent and printable aspect is a food-safe polymer that protects the ingredients within that activates and dissolves in contact with a liquid, presumably water. The products dissolve in 45 to 90 seconds.

Kanik says the entire two-part process of chemistry/formulation followed by manufacturing is critical to their success.

As for the printing, Kanik will only acknowledge that “it’s not technically 3D printing” as some have surmised. “We built all our manufacturing equipment from scratch, and it takes a lot of art in addition to the science,” he adds.

Output has grown from making batches of 50 to 100 in the lab to thousands in the plant, a capability that will further be “tremendously increased by mid-2020” through automation upgrades.

Sold only online at the company website and at Amazon, the cups are available in two multipack sizes: 5- and 10-pack pouches made of a moisture-resistant, heat-sealed polyfilm pouch with press-to-close reseal that retail for $11.99 and $15.99 respectively; the latter works out to about $1.60 per energy drink, Kanik points out.

The 9-oz serving size makes for faster consumption versus the industry standard 12-oz size, but users can dilute to whatever strength they prefer—it’s the labeled dosage regardless of dilution, he says.

The company is expanding the printing technology to include the interior cup sides as well. “That provides more surface to increase the flavor profile and allows for more complex formulations,” Kanik says.

Now made of PLA, next-generation Smart Cups may include recycled paper, edible materials and hot beverages.

 

5. PLA cups for now, but next…

The cups, which serve as container and ingredient carrier, are made of polylactic acid (PLA) and supplied by Fabri-Kal, preprinted with the brand logo and related information.

“I didn’t want a typical plastic and we weren’t ready to use paper,” explains Kanik of the decision. “Consumers needed to see and experience the Smart Cups in action.” Note that the  photos are of actual Smart Cups.

Now the company is considering other substrate options.

“We can print onto virtually any surface, recycled paper, edible materials…you name it, we can print on it,” he offers. “We could print coffee complete with flavor, sweetener and creamer.”

That would require hydration using hot water reconstitution for which PLA is unsuitable, so Kanik would look into recyclable paper cups.

Other cup sizes are on the table as well.

 

6. The model—and a demographic shock.

Smart Cups’ direct-to-consumer business model was done primarily because Kanik wanted to understand the consumer mindset.

“It’s a technology that has not existed so we’re creating awareness and education as well as creating new brand with no footprint or track record, but asking consumers to trust us and buy it.

“We’re creating a completely new consumer behavior,” he says. “With a can or bottle, the consumer perceives a value based on the product’s weight. With Smart Cups you’re holding an empty cup.”

The energy drinks’ target were on a core demographic of males aged 18 to 35 as was the company’s marketing support.

Six months later, Kanik received a shock about their actual customers.

“I found that 98% of sales were from females age 25 to 45 predominately from the Midwest and South,” he says. “Now we’re increasing our demographic as more males adopt it.”

The product and its unique technology have drawn the interest Kanik hoped they would.

“We made splash with something new and companies came to me,” he reports, including in licensing the technology. Kanik will consider those existing options and new ones in the coming months. “It will be a very exciting time for us,” he states.

 

7. Beyond energy drinks and beverages.

“We’ve had continual growth, but I’m excited about the next 18 months as we make a big push in diversifying our product offerings,” says Kanik. Smart Cups’ upcoming beverage category offerings include kids’ beverages, electrolytes, coffees, teas and even alcohol beverages.

The range of categories is expansive and far afield of drinks.

“We have a rich pipeline of innovative ideas from cosmetics to food to industrial cleaners to prescription and over-the-counter drugs,” he states.

Potential markets include hospitals, stadiums, schools and cafeterias.

“Instead of apple juice, kids could have a range of calcium and vitamin fortified drinks,” he says. “Any application where the reduction of transportation and storage requirements are advantageous.”

Those include humanitarian endeavors throughout the world.

“I always knew that the tech presented storage and transportation advantages, but I didn’t realize how important that really is to the world—it’s really shocking the limitations in sharing resources across the globe,” Kanik reports. “An airplane can only get so many supplies to a relief area in Africa, this technology will greatly improve that.

“That’s the thing I’m most passionate about it. I got into this to make a difference in the world—and Smart Cups is the technology that can do that.”

Kanik will be speaking at The Packaging Conference, Feb. 3-5, at the AT&T Conference Center, Austin, TX, and will feature new plastic and packaging technology for sustainability.

Array ( [post_title] => 7 things to know about the remarkable Smart Cups [post_content] =>

Created to be sustainably optimized, the world’s first printed—and waterless in shipment—beverages are energized for new products, packaging and markets.

Chris Kanik’s career path is, as everyone’s, a unique one, but his is singularly remarkable. For one thing, he may be the only person to start working in an American Chemical Society lab at age 12 and years later, after relocating from New York City, enjoy a stint as a stand-up comedian in California.

Kanik’s one-of-a-kind path continues as first an inventor and now chief excitement officer, aka founder and CEO, for Smart Cups, based in Mission Viejo, CA. The namesake product is based on patented technology for one-of-a-kind cups printed with functional ingredients that consumers add water to at the point of use.

Here are seven noteable aspects of Smart Cups’ past, present and future.

What the vaping controversy means for brands and their packaging

Array ( [post_title] => What the vaping controversy means for brands and their packaging [post_content] =>

“As vape manufacturers and legislators react to the recent outbreak of lung ailments, connected packaging and identification solutions could help reassure consumers by educating them and authenticating products before they buy,” says packaging design and branding expert Tom Newmaster.

 

Here’s a fun quote from USA Today: “Vaping is big business but it’s still early enough to snuff it out.” If that’s true, couldn’t the same be said for cannabis?

After all, cannabis legislation is still rolling out state-by-state, and regulations change accordingly. Both businesses represent a tempting “revenue” stream for politicians, but with the recent respiratory distress—and deaths—from vaping, it bears a closer look. This is especially concerning for packagers who will need to be on top of all the new warnings that will, no doubt, have to go on the pack.

 

Where things stand with vaping

In 2018, a study by the American Lung Assn. found that “using e-cigarettes causes health risks.” Two chemicals found in e-cigarettes were named as toxic; propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. The more of these chemicals found in e-liquids, the more toxic. The Food and Drug Administration “has not found any e-cigarette to be safe and effective in helping smokers quit.”

It’s one year later, and the above is proving to be prescient. Just recently, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posted this on the vaping crisis: “We are in desperate need of facts.” Here’s what has been reported:

• As of Oct. 8, 2019, the CDC updated its vaping statistics to 1,299 from 530 cases of lung cases related to vaping in 49 states and now reports 26 deaths in 21 states.
• 72% of cases are male.
• All reported cases have a history of e-cigarette use or vaping.
• Exclusive use of nicotine-containing products has been reported by some patients with lung injury cases, and many patients with lung injury report combined use of THC- and nicotine-containing products (THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological effects).
• Most patients reported a history of vaping with THC infused products.

In the past, vaping device manufactures have positioned their products as a safer alternative to smoking. However, the FDA issued a warning letter to a manufacturer, saying that the company violated federal regulations because it had not received federal approval to promote and sell its vaping products as a healthier option, per The New York Times on Sept. 11, 2019.  

The CDC continues to recommend that all who vape should avoid buying products off the street, especially those that contain THC or CBD oils (CBD stands for cannabidiol, an active ingredient of cannabis derived from the hemp plant). Investigations are ongoing and the CDC will report updates on their findings.

According to Reuters, the New York State Department of Health cited “Dank Vapes” and “Chronic Carts” for containing Vitamin E Acetate, a thickening agent in THC oil that has been a key focus in its investigation into this illness. The article also pointed out that top makers of nicotine-cigarettes, such as Juul Labs Inc. say their products do not contain Vitamin E compounds or THC.

 

Regulations on marijuana are evolving…again

California just launched a new set of regulations aimed at the vape industry, and packaging is in the mix. Here’s what Governor Gavin Newsom signed in an executive order in September 2019:

• A public awareness campaign focused on the dangers of vaping both tobacco and marijuana products.
• Mandating additional warning signs for vaping product packaging and retail displays.
• Enforcement of regulations against selling counterfeit vaping and cannabis smokables, as well as selling to minors.

In Massachusetts, regulators are demanding that cannabis brands disclose all ingredients in vape cartridges sold at retail.

In Oregon, licensed dispensaries are being asked to look at the labels on vaping products. If these labels “lack clarity,” retailers will need to ask product manufacturers to provide additional information—that means update your packaging.

Just recently, popular flavors such as fruit and mint have been prohibited in a newly signed national law that seeks to prevent underage vaping and further damage from lung-related illnesses.

 

Is THC the villain in the vaping scandal?

Recently, Vox reported, as vaping sickness cases increase investigators are getting a bit closer to discovering some of the causes of the lung illnesses. The CDC reported that they have not yet pinned down which device or chemical mix is responsible. However, the majority of cases reported in national and state surveys “appear to involve THC,” often loaded into vape pods and vape systems illegally. 

On the other hand, a USA Today article noted that one major manufacturer found no evidence of illness caused by their products. This company reports that they ship their pods to pre-approved suppliers that fill the devices with cannabis leaves and oils, including THC products to be vaped, and none use Vitamin E acetate. At the same time, social media videos demonstrate how to “hack” legal pods and fill them with homemade THC oils. There is even a YouTube video with thousands of views called “How-To Hack Your Juul Pod in 2 Minutes.”

The moral of the story according to some brands then is that it’s not TCH per se, but the street or homemade versions of pot pods that are in the villain’s role. The manufacturer noted above has formed its own health advisory board to determine the cause of the illnesses. One CFO said “fake pods sold in our name are a threat to public health and safety.” 

 

Can technology prevent the use of counterfeit vaping pods? 

Software can potentially track vaping devices, including pods, even if it leaves the state it has been sold in. Tracking technology affixed during packaging through radio-frequency identification or RFID (smart tags) can include vital information from manufacturer to pod content, to pod loader, to point of sale. It can even include buyer information, such as age identification when captured at sale.

Consumers can also use embedded codes in packaging to ensure a vaping product is genuine. Companies such as Digimarc offer standard quick-response or QRcodes that can be read with a cellphone app. This method provides the consumer with an element of privacy prior to the point of sale. QR codes can be used for more than authentication. When scanned, they send users to websites that contain important product information. These codes direct consumers to large quantities of data, more than could be printed on a package in a font large enough to read. Use of a QR code allows the buyer to be well informed and ensures the seller is meeting all requirements. 

One source of counterfeit products and underage sales has been convenience stores. CNBC reports that responsible companies have pulled their products from convenience stores and stopped selling flavored pods completely.

Online sales of vaping devices have, in some cases, seen increases. There are, however, measures of protection in place. To make a purchase online, one device seller requires the buyer first create an account. When a new user creates an account going forward, or an existing user returns to their website, they must input their cellphone number for verification. An authentication code is then sent to the buyer’s phone for confirmation.

This extra security measure willfurther improve identity verification and create barriers to prevent someone from using another person’s information. Companies are looking at photo identification for background checks and identification of fake ID’s. 

The technology, connected packaging, education and identification solutions can only help as the market reacts to the recent outbreak of lung ailments. The wild card remains illegal sales and improper filling of street-available, untaxed vaping devices and pods.

The article also pointed out that top makers of nicotine-cigarettes, such as Juul Labs Inc. say their products do not contain Vitamin E compounds or THC.

 

Regulations on marijuana are evolving…again

California just launched a new set of regulations aimed at the vape industry, and packaging is in the mix. Here’s what Governor Gavin Newsom signed in an executive order in September 2019:

• A public awareness campaign focused on the dangers of vaping both tobacco and marijuana products.
• Mandating additional warning signs for vaping product packaging and retail displays.
• Enforcement of regulations against selling counterfeit vaping and cannabis smokables, as well as selling to minors.

In Massachusetts, regulators are demanding that cannabis brands disclose all ingredients in vape cartridges sold at retail.

In Oregon, licensed dispensaries are being asked to look at the labels on vaping products. If these labels “lack clarity,” retailers will need to ask product manufacturers to provide additional information—that means update your packaging.

Just recently, popular flavors such as fruit and mint have been prohibited in a newly signed national law that seeks to prevent underage vaping and further damage from lung-related illnesses.

 

Is THC the villain in the vaping scandal?

Recently, Vox reported, as vaping sickness cases increase investigators are getting a bit closer to discovering some of the causes of the lung illnesses. The CDC reported that they have not yet pinned down which device or chemical mix is responsible. However, the majority of cases reported in national and state surveys “appear to involve THC,” often loaded into vape pods and vape systems illegally. 

On the other hand, a USA Today article noted that one major manufacturer found no evidence of illness caused by their products. This company reports that they ship their pods to pre-approved suppliers that fill the devices with cannabis leaves and oils, including THC products to be vaped, and none use Vitamin E acetate. At the same time, social media videos demonstrate how to “hack” legal pods and fill them with homemade THC oils. There is even a YouTube video with thousands of views called “How-To Hack Your Juul Pod in 2 Minutes.”

The moral of the story according to some brands then is that it’s not TCH per se, but the street or homemade versions of pot pods that are in the villain’s role. The manufacturer noted above has formed its own health advisory board to determine the cause of the illnesses. One CFO said “fake pods sold in our name are a threat to public health and safety.” 

 

Can technology prevent the use of counterfeit vaping pods? 

Software can potentially track vaping devices, including pods, even if it leaves the state it has been sold in. Tracking technology affixed during packaging through radio-frequency identification or RFID (smart tags) can include vital information from manufacturer to pod content, to pod loader, to point of sale. It can even include buyer information, such as age identification when captured at sale.

Consumers can also use embedded codes in packaging to ensure a vaping product is genuine. Companies such as Digimarc offer standard quick-response or QRcodes that can be read with a cellphone app. This method provides the consumer with an element of privacy prior to the point of sale. QR codes can be used for more than authentication. When scanned, they send users to websites that contain important product information. These codes direct consumers to large quantities of data, more than could be printed on a package in a font large enough to read. Use of a QR code allows the buyer to be well informed and ensures the seller is meeting all requirements. 

One source of counterfeit products and underage sales has been convenience stores. CNBC reports that responsible companies have pulled their products from convenience stores and stopped selling flavored pods completely.

Online sales of vaping devices have, in some cases, seen increases. There are, however, measures of protection in place. To make a purchase online, one device seller requires the buyer first create an account. When a new user creates an account going forward, or an existing user returns to their website, they must input their cellphone number for verification. An authentication code is then sent to the buyer’s phone for confirmation.

This extra security measure willfurther improve identity verification and create barriers to prevent someone from using another person’s information. Companies are looking at photo identification for background checks and identification of fake ID’s. 

The technology, connected packaging, education and identification solutions can only help as the market reacts to the recent outbreak of lung ailments. The wild card remains illegal sales and improper filling of street-available, untaxed vaping devices and pods.

“As vape manufacturers and legislators react to the recent outbreak of lung ailments, connected packaging and identification solutions could help reassure consumers by educating them and authenticating products before they buy,” says packaging design and branding expert Tom Newmaster.

 

Here’s a fun quote from USA Today: “Vaping is big business but it’s still early enough to snuff it out.” If that’s true, couldn’t the same be said for cannabis?

After all, cannabis legislation is still rolling out state-by-state, and regulations change accordingly. Both businesses represent a tempting “revenue” stream for politicians, but with the recent respiratory distress—and deaths—from vaping, it bears a closer look. This is especially concerning for packagers who will need to be on top of all the new warnings that will, no doubt, have to go on the pack.

 

Where things stand with vaping

In 2018, a study by the American Lung Assn. found that “using e-cigarettes causes health risks.” Two chemicals found in e-cigarettes were named as toxic; propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. The more of these chemicals found in e-liquids, the more toxic. The Food and Drug Administration “has not found any e-cigarette to be safe and effective in helping smokers quit.”

It’s one year later, and the above is proving to be prescient. Just recently, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posted this on the vaping crisis: “We are in desperate need of facts.” Here’s what has been reported:

• As of Oct. 8, 2019, the CDC updated its vaping statistics to 1,299 from 530 cases of lung cases related to vaping in 49 states and now reports 26 deaths in 21 states.
• 72% of cases are male.
• All reported cases have a history of e-cigarette use or vaping.
• Exclusive use of nicotine-containing products has been reported by some patients with lung injury cases, and many patients with lung injury report combined use of THC- and nicotine-containing products (THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological effects).
• Most patients reported a history of vaping with THC infused products.

In the past, vaping device manufactures have positioned their products as a safer alternative to smoking. However, the FDA issued a warning letter to a manufacturer, saying that the company violated federal regulations because it had not received federal approval to promote and sell its vaping products as a healthier option, per The New York Times on Sept. 11, 2019.  

The CDC continues to recommend that all who vape should avoid buying products off the street, especially those that contain THC or CBD oils (CBD stands for cannabidiol, an active ingredient of cannabis derived from the hemp plant). Investigations are ongoing and the CDC will report updates on their findings.

SPMC webinar explores medical packaging integrity

Array ( [post_title] => SPMC webinar explores medical packaging integrity [post_content] =>

In-depth knowledge of pack-testing standards and packaging materials is essential when developing packaging for medical devices, kits and other products that require sterilization.

“SPMC Learning Tools: A Guide to Gels and Sterile Barrier Integrity Measures,” a webinar sponsored by the Sterilization Packaging Manufacturers Council (SPMC), offers packaging engineers a close look at polymeric gels (film imperfections) and package integrity testing for medical applications.

This Packaging Digest webinar, which captures the information in two SPMC white papersPackage Integrity Testing and Polymeric Gels in Flexible Medical Device Packaging—was broadcast live in September 2019 by Informa Markets and will be available online until Sept. 11, 2020.

In the webinar, speaker Henk Blom, vp of research and technology at Paxxus, defines a gel as “a visible dome-shaped imperfection in the film matrix due to the embedding of an incompatible material” (per “Polyethylene Gels: A Primer” by N. Aubee, R. Saetre and T. Tikuisis, TAPPI 2006).

Blom describes three varieties of gels—unmelt/mixing gels, cross-linked and oxidized gels, and cross-contamination gels—with attention to common causes of each type and how to identify the various gels.

In addition, Blom provides an update on “ASTM D7310-11 Standard Guide for Defect Detection and Rating of Plastic Films Using Optical Sensors,” which is under review by a multidisciplinary group comprising resin suppliers, extrusion equipment suppliers, optical equipment companies and others. The proposed revision to the standard is available from ASTM (WK67177).

Bill Cassidy, product development manager at Amcor, provides further education on gels. He explores package integrity concerns, including gels in the context of weld seals, peelable seals, form-fill-seal and surface printing.

The webinar segues to package integrity testing, with Chetan Joshi, process engineer at Technipaq, addressing package integrity versus seal strength. Joshi notes that theses are two distinct package attributes, and that a package with acceptable seal strength may still fail integrity testing if it has a seal channel or a pinhole in its material.

Joshi also highlights the necessity of maintaining sterility of the device in the package until the point of use and the role of package integrity in assuring patient safety. He explains how porous and nonporous materials prevent microbial contamination: Porous microbial barriers create a “tortuous path” that allows air to enter the package but filters microbes, and nonporous microbial barriers block air that may carry microbes into the package.

The final portion of the webinar, presented by Ryan Killing, new product engineer at PPC Flexible Packaging,provides a guide to package integrity test methods, including dye, bubble emission (submersion), visual, vacuum decay and trace gas testing.

This portion of the webinar provides tables with descriptions and key points about a range of ASTM methods for testing seal integrity and whole package integrity. A Text Method Selection matrix depicts which test methods are appropriate for porous material, nonporous material, rigid trays, flexible packaging, clear material and opaque material.

At the conclusion of the live webinar, the speakers fielded questions from attendees. This Q&A, edited for clarity and brevity, is presented below.

 

Do gels create a high risk of contamination in an automated system of transport on conveyors, lifts, packaging and transportation?

Cassidy: No, they do not increase risk of contamination. The gels are completely embedded in the polyolefin film, so there’d be no increased risk. In fact, if you were to take your fingernail and try to remove it, you’d find that the gel is completely embedded in the film.

 

How do porous packages block microbes?

Joshi: Porous packaging materials act as filters for microbes. There are three mechanisms by which filtration occurs. These are: interception, inertial impaction and diffusion. You can read up more on these three mechanisms in the SPMC white paper [Package Integrity Testing], which is on the SPMC website now.

 

Do gels continue to form after a film is wound into a roll and put in storage?

Cassidy: The answer to that question also is no. As a result of the extrusion process, the amount of gels and the gel size produced as the result of that process is basically final. Regardless of how long you keep the roll in storage or pouches in storage, temperature and humidity are completely independent. So no, the gel size and frequencies will remain the same over time.

 

Do resin pellets have gels, or does that only happen when extruded into a thin film?

Blom: That’s a very good question. Resin pellets themselves can have gels in them, so this would obviously happen at the resin manufacturer level, and you could create additional gels during the extrusion process. So if the resin came with gels, and your resin extrusion process wasn’t optimized, you could in fact create more gels. But very often, the resins are clean from gels, and most often they are created during the extrusion process, although not exclusively.

 

How do I get more information on these tests without having to buy each standard?

Blom: That’s a great question, as well. You saw a partial list of test methods, as Ryan was going through some of those. There are more. The easiest way to get all of them is to become a member of ASTM and to join Committee F02. As part of your membership in ASTM, you get free access to one of the standards books, and the standard book that you would be looking for is ASTM Volume 15.10.That book has all of the test methods that ASTM F02 has oversight for and monitors and keeps current.

 

How does folding Tyvek cause failures in integrity testing?

Killing: Bending or folding of Tyvek can cause separation of the fibers. The microbial barrier is still there, but the pressure from the bubble test will easily allow the air to escape and represent a hole. It’s not because there’s an integrity breach, but the fibers themselves have separated, so the fluid or the air can escape. So it’s beneficial, as much as possible, to not stress the Tyvek.

 

Where is ASTM F1140?

Joshi: ASTM F1140 is the test method for burst strength testing, and again that is a seal strength test method. So the burst strength method does not assess package integrity. It is similar to peel strength testing. Peel strength testing gives an idea of strength in that sample or in a localized area. Burst strength testing gives us an idea of seal strength around the package, but it does not assess integrity failures, like seal channels or pinholes.

 

Does the white paper also provide guidance on selection of appropriate seal strength tests?

Blom: The white papers that we created do not address that question specifically. There is an ASTM task group that is addressing that question right now. It was generated around the question of where did the one-pound minimum peel strength come from? Geoff Pavey, from Oliver-Tolas, and a large group of others in the industry are dealing with that right now.

In-depth knowledge of pack-testing standards and packaging materials is essential when developing packaging for medical devices, kits and other products that require sterilization.

“SPMC Learning Tools: A Guide to Gels and Sterile Barrier Integrity Measures,” a webinar sponsored by the Sterilization Packaging Manufacturers Council (SPMC), offers packaging engineers a close look at polymeric gels (film imperfections) and package integrity testing for medical applications.

This Packaging Digest webinar, which captures the information in two SPMC white papersPackage Integrity Testing and Polymeric Gels in Flexible Medical Device Packaging—was broadcast live in September 2019 by Informa Markets and will be available online until Sept. 11, 2020.

5 branding and packaging trends for 2020

Array ( [post_title] => 5 branding and packaging trends for 2020 [post_content] =>

With every new year comes a new opportunity to elevate your brand, thinking beyond cool designs and memorable slogans to connect with users in a way that shows you can be trusted. Successful brands in 2020 will be those that find creative ways to express their over-arching brand attributes—delivering clear, unified brand assets telling stories that have the power to change consumer behavior and, in some cases, start a revolution on store shelves.

I refer to it as breaking through your brand silo. When you consider the broader impact of your product—including the packaging it comes in and how it supports consumers in their aspirational goals to lead better lives and be good to the planet—you have the potential to change the playing field of an entire industry.

In my firm’s role helping companies elevate their brand to gain consumer attention and trust, being at the cutting-edge of what’s next in branding and packaging is key.

Here’s what we’re seeing as the top trends for 2020 and beyond:

 

1. Sustainable packaging

Leaders are already offering edible wrappers for individually wrapped foods, and more zero-waste packaging concepts are on the way as companies continue to promote packaging that’s both good for you and good for the environment.

Eco-friendly innovations to watch for include:

• edible plastic film fruit coverings;
• potato-based wrappings for ice cream bars, sandwiches, bagels and cookies;
• compostable wine bottles;
• seaweed-based packaging for coffee sachets; and
• water-soluble packaging for all types of products, including detergents, personal care items and food.

Maple Hill, a leading producer of grass-fed, organic dairy products, for example, opted to fill its new line of single-serve shelf-stable (aseptic) milks in a container that is not only 100% recyclable made mostly of raw paperboard from responsibly managed pulp trees, but equally important, stays true to the company’s core values while providing a feel-good choice for consumers (see image above).

 

2. Transparency with consumers

The notion of transparency will take a literal turn in 2020 as companies address growing consumer demand for honesty about product ingredients and how products are made.

Traditional packaging is being reinvented to embrace clear, to-the-point wording and when appropriate, see-through cut-outs that reveal what’s inside. By managing consumer expectations in the packaging itself, companies are removing the element of surprise. It has been shown that, when given a choice, consumers will choose transparent packaging over opaque packaging.

A trendy whole food protein bar took the approach of listing simple food ingredients in large font on its packaging, followed by ‘No B.S,’ enabling consumers to quickly identify its ingredients as healthy.

High-tech giant Apple also took an elevated approach to transparency in its latest product rollout, displaying the Apple logo in translucent color layers to underscore a message of honesty and trust.

 

3. Sophistication

A creative flight to the safety and brand elements typically seen in the trusted worlds of finance, real estate and law will continue to enjoy a broader, more general appeal in the coming year.

It’s no surprise then that global color authority Pantone selected a rich deep blue as 2020 color of the year. Companies are increasingly using strong, uncluttered messaging in simple, yet sophisticated bold colors and big type to communicate trust and respect.

We’ll continue to see more one-word brand names—such as Casper (sleep products) or Chobani (yogurt)—anchored by straightforward slogans so consumers quickly understand product attributes at a glance.

A cottage cheese brand recently led an industry revival by introducing snack pack sizes and new flavors in sophisticated packaging, elevating a boring, declining food category back to the spotlight. Key to success was a unique one-word brand name, Muuna, in a bold, curvy logotype, and the use of wavy patterns and shapes throughout all brand collateral to convey the notion of creaminess.

 

4. Consistency

If you haven’t done so already, 2020 will be the year to refresh your brand story and ensure you’re conveying it in the most compelling way possible, across all brand assets, packaging and touchpoints. We’ll see new and innovative packaging structures that support consistent brand values across product lines—such as a disruptive trend on the horizon in the way leafy greens are packaged on grocery store shelves.

To promote a healthy, better-for-you brand message, we’ll see single-use harmful-to-the-planet blister plastic packaging replaced with newer, compostable containers that enable greens to stand up on store shelves.

The over-arching trend is that brand, packaging and industry goals will start to come together in one unified brand expression.

 

5. Tech-centric

Health conscious consumers love their smart devices, and increased use of technology is, in turn, putting pressure on companies to deliver “smart tech ready” packaging. The more economical it becomes to infuse radio-frequency identification (RFID) sensors in water bottles, coffee mugs and other new-tech offerings, the more innovations we’re seeing.

The beverage industry is an early leader, where forward-thinking companies are introducing health drinks, tonics, and herb- or CBD-infused products that “speak” directly to devices, enabling users to automatically track their beverage consumption via health apps. Not only can they easily track their progress towards achieving health goals, but the packages can help them get there by sending alerts when it’s time for consumption.

• water-soluble packaging for all types of products, including detergents, personal care items and food.

Maple Hill, a leading producer of grass-fed, organic dairy products, for example, opted to fill its new line of single-serve shelf-stable (aseptic) milks in a container that is not only 100% recyclable made mostly of raw paperboard from responsibly managed pulp trees, but equally important, stays true to the company’s core values while providing a feel-good choice for consumers (see image above).

 

2. Transparency with consumers

The notion of transparency will take a literal turn in 2020 as companies address growing consumer demand for honesty about product ingredients and how products are made.

Traditional packaging is being reinvented to embrace clear, to-the-point wording and when appropriate, see-through cut-outs that reveal what’s inside. By managing consumer expectations in the packaging itself, companies are removing the element of surprise. It has been shown that, when given a choice, consumers will choose transparent packaging over opaque packaging.

A trendy whole food protein bar took the approach of listing simple food ingredients in large font on its packaging, followed by ‘No B.S,’ enabling consumers to quickly identify its ingredients as healthy.

High-tech giant Apple also took an elevated approach to transparency in its latest product rollout, displaying the Apple logo in translucent color layers to underscore a message of honesty and trust.

 

3. Sophistication

A creative flight to the safety and brand elements typically seen in the trusted worlds of finance, real estate and law will continue to enjoy a broader, more general appeal in the coming year.

It’s no surprise then that global color authority Pantone selected a rich deep blue as 2020 color of the year. Companies are increasingly using strong, uncluttered messaging in simple, yet sophisticated bold colors and big type to communicate trust and respect.

We’ll continue to see more one-word brand names—such as Casper (sleep products) or Chobani (yogurt)—anchored by straightforward slogans so consumers quickly understand product attributes at a glance.

A cottage cheese brand recently led an industry revival by introducing snack pack sizes and new flavors in sophisticated packaging, elevating a boring, declining food category back to the spotlight. Key to success was a unique one-word brand name, Muuna, in a bold, curvy logotype, and the use of wavy patterns and shapes throughout all brand collateral to convey the notion of creaminess.

 

4. Consistency

If you haven’t done so already, 2020 will be the year to refresh your brand story and ensure you’re conveying it in the most compelling way possible, across all brand assets, packaging and touchpoints. We’ll see new and innovative packaging structures that support consistent brand values across product lines—such as a disruptive trend on the horizon in the way leafy greens are packaged on grocery store shelves.

To promote a healthy, better-for-you brand message, we’ll see single-use harmful-to-the-planet blister plastic packaging replaced with newer, compostable containers that enable greens to stand up on store shelves.

The over-arching trend is that brand, packaging and industry goals will start to come together in one unified brand expression.

 

5. Tech-centric

Health conscious consumers love their smart devices, and increased use of technology is, in turn, putting pressure on companies to deliver “smart tech ready” packaging. The more economical it becomes to infuse radio-frequency identification (RFID) sensors in water bottles, coffee mugs and other new-tech offerings, the more innovations we’re seeing.

The beverage industry is an early leader, where forward-thinking companies are introducing health drinks, tonics, and herb- or CBD-infused products that “speak” directly to devices, enabling users to automatically track their beverage consumption via health apps. Not only can they easily track their progress towards achieving health goals, but the packages can help them get there by sending alerts when it’s time for consumption.

Array ( [post_title] => 5 branding and packaging trends for 2020 [post_content] =>

With every new year comes a new opportunity to elevate your brand, thinking beyond cool designs and memorable slogans to connect with users in a way that shows you can be trusted. Successful brands in 2020 will be those that find creative ways to express their over-arching brand attributes—delivering clear, unified brand assets telling stories that have the power to change consumer behavior and, in some cases, start a revolution on store shelves.

I refer to it as breaking through your brand silo. When you consider the broader impact of your product—including the packaging it comes in and how it supports consumers in their aspirational goals to lead better lives and be good to the planet—you have the potential to change the playing field of an entire industry.

In my firm’s role helping companies elevate their brand to gain consumer attention and trust, being at the cutting-edge of what’s next in branding and packaging is key.

Here’s what we’re seeing as the top trends for 2020 and beyond:

 

1. Sustainable packaging

Leaders are already offering edible wrappers for individually wrapped foods, and more zero-waste packaging concepts are on the way as companies continue to promote packaging that’s both good for you and good for the environment.

Eco-friendly innovations to watch for include:

• edible plastic film fruit coverings;
• potato-based wrappings for ice cream bars, sandwiches, bagels and cookies;
• compostable wine bottles;
• seaweed-based packaging for coffee sachets; and
• water-soluble packaging for all types of products, including detergents, personal care items and food.

Maple Hill, a leading producer of grass-fed, organic dairy products, for example, opted to fill its new line of single-serve shelf-stable (aseptic) milks in a container that is not only 100% recyclable made mostly of raw paperboard from responsibly managed pulp trees, but equally important, stays true to the company’s core values while providing a feel-good choice for consumers (see image above).
