5 reasons why single-use packaging is making a comeback!

May 22, 2020Jheel Parekh

For many decades now, ever since we realised we are polluting mother earth, there have been multiple initiatives taken for sustainability and waste reduction especially in the packaging industry. And today given the COVID-19 outbreak, with an increased focus on hygiene, everyone is now opting for single-use packaging.

Big noise about single-use packaging

During a health crisis such as the COVID-19 outbreak, consumers want to be very certain of the fact that their product and its packaging has been handled by very few human hands. Although, let me add that few years back, single-use packaging had also been severely criticised what with the supposed wastefulness and environmental concerns, but now the very same form of packaging has an edge in the market. While this may hurt the sustainability goals set by governing bodies, but it is the only alternative from the hygiene point of view due to minimum handling and access of the inner product.

Advantages of single-use packaging

Perfect for on-the-go situation:

Single-serve packaging is often used in on-the-move / on-the-go kind of situations, where consumers consume their food directly from the package and hence arises the need for the packaging to be reliable, sturdy and clean. Today, as many consumers opt for healthy snacking they also want their food to be served faster so that they can carry it in their hands and snacking while on a walk or storing it for gym. Keeping this demand in mind, Schmancy has released a range of products including single-use containers, pouches and glasses which are sturdy, are stackable and keep food intact especially while consumers are on the go!

Healthy food consumption:

Healthy eating is also one of the key factors for the popularity of single-serving packaging options. Be it fresh fruits, dry-fruits, snacks, or anything to nibble on, can now be packaged securely for easy transport. There are many consumers who are  particular about carrying only a certain amount of food at a given time and these single-serving packages help you do just that! The packaging that comes with a window allow you to see how much you have packed and how much you need to consume as well.

All-day freshness:

Since it is a single-use packaging the opening and closing of the box doesn’t happen as frequently as it does with a reusable box. Also most of these packages come with aluminium coating inside, making food spoilage to be much less of a concern. With minimum resealing and notably faster consumption, the single-use packaging is apt to store all those perishable items which need to be eaten within a day or two!

Extremely adaptable:

Single use packaging can support a wide range of markets including dry-fruit packaging, spices packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, beauty and cosmetic packaging and even pet food packaging. This kind of packaging also adds to the versatility factor as they offer more ways to the consumer to use the product and interact with.

Easy meal-preparation carry:

Single-use packaging is ideal for those who need the freedom to create their own meal-kits. It is ideal for millennial customers and small nuclear families as well. All one needs to do is measure the proper serving sizes, and consumers can use single-use food packaging to prepare meals faster and with more accurate quantity.

Today, social distancing has been advised by all governing bodies, as that is the only means to flatten the curve and in efforts to stop the spread of this pandemic called coronavirus, more and more take-away owners are opting only for single-use packaging as a norm to supply food.
