Addressing the challenges of packaging and shipping in food and beverage markets

Some of the most critical issues facing businesses as they compete in the food and beverage markets are product surety, improving process efficiencies, manufacturing flexibility and brand/package differentiation. 3M packaging solutions and developing technologies can help you address these critical business issues.

  • Product surety

    From farm to table, making sure food is safe, fresh and wholesome is a top priority. Protecting and preserving food and beverage products at all points in a worldwide supply chain is becoming a critical issue.

  • Process efficiency

    From loading dock to lobby, most food and beverage items pass through processing operations. Continuously improving efficiency is a strategic necessity to maintain the bottom line against tough competition and high customer expectations.

  • Manufacturing flexibility

    An increasingly diverse and geographically demanding population means food companies require agile and flexible manufacturing processes, including shorter production runs and new products, in order to stay competitive.

  • Brand differentiation

    Brand differentiation is where technology and art combine to build and maintain consumer confidence and loyalty. With multiple brands competing for the same space, customizable packaging options are imperative.
