So, we all know that 2021 is starting where 2020 left off and we understand that presents many challenges but in the words of the ever-optimistic Albert Einstein
“In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity”.
The 4Pack team thought we would come up with a RESOLUTION list for 2021:
2021 is a year to keep an eye on changing food labelling regulations: Brexit, Natasha's Law are just two to watch.
Continued growth in online and direct to consumer shopping means that finding more creative ways to engage consumers and provide clear product information is critical to stand out in the crowd.
Building sustainability in by design will become a winning strategy, whether it is the sustainability of ingredients, food processing techniques and/or packaging solutions and logistics.
2021 will be a year of new opportunities, as we eventually emerge out of the pandemic and consumers become more mobile.
Keeping close to consumer lifestyle changes and preferences will be critical with elevated interest in plant based, healthy eating and wellness directed products.
If 2020 is anything to go by, then 2021 will likely be unpredictable - but strap in tight and try to enjoy the ride.
Field to fork transparency and traceability will become more of an agenda item in 2021, consumers want to be educated about the provenance of products.
With 2021 likely to be a year of flux and change it is important to direct some attention in keeping all your product, ingredient and labelling information under control and up to date.
Be open minded to using systems to support your business and make 2021 the year where you tackle any overdue digital transformation to help you centralise information and streamline your processes.
Finally, approach everything with agility in mind - from chasing new opportunities through to improving ways of working.
