A new year brings new opportunity for the industry, this is what you should be looking out for in 2021
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:
Your 2021 Resolutions
R – Regulations
2021 is a year to keep an eye on changing food labelling regulations: Brexit, Natasha’s Law are just two to watch.
E – Engagement
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.

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.
