The key trends of industry include reduction or light weighting, increased recycling, recovery of waste, increased use of renewable products, increased utilization of recycled material and improvements in packaging and logistics. In the coming years it is expected that edible packaging products made of natural ingredients will become more popular.

The packaging formats of Dixie Egg Company, Gillette Razors, and Wolfgang Puck Coffee, etc… are excellent. This style of packaging is not only environmentally friendly, these would be alluring enough for the customers.
