Eco-friendly packaging can make economic sense


Asia is the world’s largest market for packaging, accounting for over 40% of global packaging consumption. The region’s packaging consumption has been driven by population growth, urbanization and a rising middle class. Perishable food packaging has seen significant growth in recent years. However, consumers today are concerned about sustainability amid rising packaging demand. Producers are trying to find solutions and meet this demand.

• The growth of online food purchasing and the need for omnichannel packaging
