Continued Growth of Colour Cosmetics to Benefit Albéa

Mylan NguyenAnalyst Insight by Mylan Nguyen - Packaging Analyst

Albéa, the leading global manufacturer of rigid plastic packaging in beauty, specialises in speciality cosmetics containers, strongly benefiting from the dynamic colour cosmetics category. Still, to sustain future growth, innovation should remain a key focus for the company, both in more mature developed markets as well as in emerging markets such as China, India and Indonesia, where consumers enjoying higher disposable incomes increasingly expect more sophisticated colour cosmetics products and pack types.

Liquid Concentrates Successfully Mix Dosing and On-the-Go Attributes

Why do we increasingly hear about “water enhancers” when we already have “cordials” and “concentrates”? Well, while the product content is almost the same, it is actually more to do with the packaging. Brand owners have been revamping liquid concentrates, and almost created the category entirely in the case of the US, by introducing reduced-sugar versions of their products in small other plastic bottles with dispensing closures – breaking the pack type and size codes in the category. As is customary when a concept takes off, a new term, like “water enhancers”, is used when referring to it. After the brand Mio laid the groundwork for the pack format in the US in 2011, the format has indeed taken off, and it also boasts interesting growth potential to 2019, both within and beyond liquid concentrates.

Doing Business in the Halal Market

The Muslim religion is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world, with Muslim consumers expected to reach 26 percent of the global population by 2030.

Muslim consumers seek products that cater to their religious needs and comply with Islamic requirements: from halal production process to halal labelling and packaging. The lack of permissible offerings has led to a surge in demand, as Muslims grow hungry for trendy products and services adapted to their lifestyle.

Recap of The Global Food & Beverage Packaging Summit 2015

Eric Penickaand Eric Penicka - Research Analyst

The Global Food & Beverage Packaging Summit was held in Chicago from July 7-8 and included over 30 conference sessions featuring a mix of CPG and packaging companies, as well as an expanded product showcase. The event’s dual track program highlighted marketing and branding strategies as well as production and engineering technical intelligence focused on packaging innovations and solutions for tomorrow’s consumer. Below are the key findings that the North America Euromonitor research team of Eric Penicka and Sean Kreidler observed.

Product innovation was a core theme of the event. Consumer needs are more robust than they were just 10 years ago. Increasingly they are more willing to take risks and try new products. To succeed in the face of mounting competition, standing still is not an option. It is important to identify consumers’ struggles and packaging innovation offers a great opportunity to attend to them. Product reformulation is risky, coupons short-lived and SKU rationalization not necessarily noticed by consumers. Simple packaging redesign is the most obvious and visual way to facelift a product. Now more than ever technology advances have made prototyping more cost effective and easy, stimulating innovation. Also, it is important to think beyond traditional competitors when innovating. For example, Coca-Cola is not only competing with Pepsi for consumer attention, but it is also competing with yoga classes or pints of Ben and Jerry ice cream, that also offer stress release and comfort. Dutch Boy successfully revamped their packaging from metal cans to plastic tubs, fulfilling a need for consumers for greater ease of use. This trend caught on in food categories too and can be seen in Domino sugar, Folgers coffee and Similac powder milk formula.

Top Trends Seen at FMI Connect and United Fresh 2015

The FMI (Food Marketing Institute) Connect, InterBev, and United Fresh co-located trade shows took place in Chicago from June 8 to 11. The three trade shows hosted attendees who saw the latest in alcoholic drinks, fresh produce, hot and soft drinks, and packaged foods for the supermarket industry. Below are the top trends that the Euromonitor research team of Beatriz de Llano, Emily Balsamo, Eric Penicka, Mark Strobel, and Virginia Lee observed.

Authentic Italian

Italia

Italian companies had a big presence at this year’s FMI Connect through the Italy pavilion. Organized by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), the pavilion featured about 50 Italian food and beverage companies featuring products from gorgonzola cheese to Prosecco to packaged cornetti (an Italian pastry). While the presence of Italian products at FMI Connect was undoubtedly to increase exports of Italian products into US retail outlets, the underlying goal of the ITA was to educate Americans about what separates products from Italy and those made in the Italian style. Further, the ITA’s final objective is to obtain geographic labelling protections much like those which currently exist within the European Union, which are currently being negotiated under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. If passed, geographical indications on European products would give consumers an additional informative label to trust, much like “Certified GF Gluten Free” and “USDA Organic” certifications, assisting consumers in identifying true Italian products from their imitators.

Affordability is Key in Global Food Packaging

Affordability of food packages is driven by two opposite product positionings: very small and very large. Small pack sizes offer consumers the ability to purchase single units for low prices while large pack sizes offer better value for money. Watch the full video for complete insights.
