The Challenge to Packaging in Meeting Product Transparency Initiatives

The notion of “product transparency” has become front and center with recent changes to the FDA’s Nutrition Facts Label, the SmartLabel™ industry initiative and the GMO Food Labeling Bill. These private and regulatory initiatives are responding to the demands of today’s shoppers who care intensely about the food they consume, with fully half of Americans weighing the ‘evolving drivers’ of provenance, health and wellness, safety, and social impact in their purchasing decisions. 

But with limited packaging real estate, brands are hard pressed to meet the challenge and to deliver this content. If they don’t, they run the risk of losing market share as 39% of consumers say they would switch to a new brand that offered full product transparency.

This session will review these initiatives and the latest technology solutions – such as GS1 Mobile Scan – that create digital gateways to provide consumers with the relevant content they want, and when they want it.
