Millennials impact trends in foodservice packaging

16 December 2016

The Foodservice Packaging Institute's (FPI) 2016 Trends Report reveals that key industry shifts are being driven by the generational influence of millennials. Millennials desire food that is increasingly convenient and less time-intensive. Responses showed an uptick in the grab-and-go sector. Meal delivery programs are gaining traction, too, requiring new and innovative foodservice packaging.
Changes in preparation and distribution of meals are driving other trends, such as an increased interest in tamper-evident packaging and food safety. "Environmentally-friendly" packaging is moving beyond trendy to now being a regular part of doing business (Press Release FPI, 15 November 2016).
