Key Findings

Consumers' changing lifestyles mean that packaging is evolving to meet the demands of new consumption opportunities for confectionery products. On-the-go occasions require convenient, highly functional packs, while sharing at home means there is a place for more stylish formats that bring a sense of indulgence and enjoyment.

Packaging plays an increasingly important role in creating sensory experiences associated with a particular product or brand. The look and feel of the pack and the manual ritual involved in opening and dispensing form part of the consumer experience and can drive brand and product loyalty. Mobile technology can also be employed to provide the consumer with an enhanced, memorable brand experience.
