REDUCING OVERALL PACKAGING COSTS & IMPACTING THE BOTTOM LINE OF FOOD & BEVERAGE CORPORATIONS
For all food & beverage packaging executives, whether representing organizations small or large, a continual challenge faced is reducing the overall expense associated with packaging products, while enhancing shelf-life, increasing durability during transportation, as well as meeting marketing demands. Caught in the crux of various departments, packaging teams must balance a wide variety of stakeholder requests in order to ultimately reduce packaging costs while maintaining the highest level of quality and product integrity. Packaging teams play an integral role in managing expectations as well as cost-benefits of various changes within the design and manufacture of food packaging and are in many cases providing a tremendous benefit to the bottom line.
