EFFECTIVE PACKAGING SOLUTIONS FOR FMCG PRODUCTS

We buy fast-moving consumer goods every day.

But with so many options available, it can be hard to choose whenever we enter a retail store or click “add to cart” on an e-commerce website.

So in a crowded market, how do you prime your products for distribution and purchasing?

They need attractive FMCG packaging that’s efficient to manufacture and easy to stock on shop shelves.

TYPES OF FAST-MOVING CONSUMER GOODS

Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) include many packaged products we consume frequently and  quickly replace—from food and beverage products to health, beauty and personal care items to house hold goods.

WHAT IS SHELF-READY PACKAGING?

Think FMCG packaging is just a bunch of folding carton packaging or folding packaging boxes?

Think again. Shelf-ready or retail-ready packaging is designed to be “ready-to-sell”.

Traditional packaging often requires unpacking and stocking individual items. Shelf-ready packaging arrives at a retailer with little or no unpacking needed: ready to be put directly onto shelves in self-contained, branded display packaging. It saves handling and restocking time and reduces labour costs and waste.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PACKAGING DESIGN IN THE FMCG INDUSTRY

Any old cardboard folding box will do, right?

Wrong! Packaging design is about creating a functional and effective tool to help with product differentiation, drive sales and build brand trust and awareness.

We offer plenty of standardised designs and sizes for shelf-ready packaging. However, you may also consider custom folding cartons and folding box packaging—particularly if your product is in a crowded field of competitors or you want an innovative new way to package it.

Creative packaging design may come with a production cost, but it can be worth the investment.
