Tetra Pak Index 2018: what opportunities does smart packaging offer to e-commerce? @ FoodBev Webinars
Sep 20 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Tetra Pak Index 2018: what opportunities does smart packaging offer to e-commerce? @ FoodBev Webinars

The power of the internet is transforming the grocery trade, just as it has revolutionised so many other retail sectors. This year’s Tetra Pak Index provides insights into this new omnichannel world of grocery shopping which is taking an ever-greater share of the food retail market. It’s based on consumer research conducted in five countries, plus interviews with e-retailers in North America, Europe and China, and a global market segmentation study from Euromonitor.

The rise of online grocery is a great opportunity for food and beverage brands, and packaging plays a key role in supporting and enhancing their success. Smart packaging helps drive greater transparency and efficiency in the supply chain, both upstream and downstream with the use of unique digital code identifiers. These codes also enable a direct, interactive relationship with the consumer, in-store or in the home. With 80% of consumer product groups predicted to migrate to a direct-to-consumer model in the next few years, this rapidly developing technology can help brands explore new avenues and drive growth in the years ahead.

This webinar will dive deeper into the trends highlighted in the Tetra Pak Index 2018 report to understand what the rise of online grocery means, and how food and drink brands can tap into the opportunities it brings.
