Pre-packaged meal kits and salads – in a variety of structures and business models – have exploded during the past several years.
Frozen food sections in grocery stores are now filled with microwaveable or skillet meals – each containing a variety of IQF ingredients pre-dosed into a single package. Meal delivery services have also grown rapidly – combining fresh produce and meats with smaller, single-serve sachet and stick packs for sauces, seasonings, and other recipe ingredients.
Each format requires a packaging system designed to deliver an end result that is cost-effective and designed for growth.
The idea that pre-packaged kits is limited to food products couldn’t be further from the truth.
The automated packaging of product kits – whether for hardware, automotive, or other applications – can replace what can sometimes be a labor intensive – and expensive – process.
