Venu Ayyar said: "Resizing will continue to evolve. Covid-19 has only taught us to keep constantly evolving."
Sukanta Bhattacharyya agreed, " Resizing will continue to evolve."
Bhattacharyya added, "As the premises are always dynamic and continuously evolving with time, it will influence consumer preference on both pack size and purchase intention as per their SSC type."
Venu Ayyar said, "People are getting used to resizing. Now post-Covid-19 consumers would expect smaller and smaller packs as families will go for single-use packs depending on different family member’s requirements."
Venu Ayyar concluded, "For example, many people, including me, used to consume paani puri, bhel etc at street stalls. But with the Covid-19, we eat all these kinds of stuff but now it is made at home. This may not change to a great extent. Eating outside food is going to be an issue post-Covid-19 too."
At WhatPackaging?, we concur. We believe that all three - flexible plastic, metal and paper-based packaging - have an important role to play in protecting food, reducing waste during transportation, storage and consumption, while helping to increase the health and well-being of people all over India.
