POWDER PACKAGING LINES THAT MEET EVOLVING CONSUMER NEEDS

September 14, 2022 Erik Bronander

The process parameters of your powder packaging lines have to evolve with consumer sentiments. Growing awareness in younger generations of health and nutrition is creating a booming market for protein supplements and powders.

Conscious consumerism along with increased concerns about environmental sustainability and added convenience are driving the evolution of powder packaging line designs. Expanding fulfillment channels and direct-to-consumer (D2C) growth opportunities in ecommerce require manufacturers to remain agile when addressing line changes to meet consumer demands.

How to Meet Evolving Consumer Needs With Modern Powder Packaging Lines

Equipment selection and packaging system integration may require capabilities to handle different sizes and formats to serve a variety of market segments. Some consumers want to buy in bulk but are concerned about the shelf life of their powder products. Others prefer pouches compared to rigid containers in individual sizes, making it difficult to design a packaging line that addresses all these consumer sentiments.

Nutra-Pack Systems can help manufacturers to configure a powder packaging line that solves many of these challenges.

 

Common Challenges With Older Powder Packaging Lines

Many packaging line solutions aren’t flexible enough to respond to modern consumers’ needs. Factors such as limited production capacity or processing different packaging formats can stifle growth in the company.

Older packaging lines become a problem when the following issues creep into the process:

  • Increased obsolescence – Equipment and components (especially electronics) are no longer readily available or supported
  • Reduced accuracy – Inconsistent filling equipment can lead to product loss when shipping too much powder per container
  • Limited throughput – Increased downtimes due to equipment failures will decrease production capacity and affect revenues
  • Compromised quality –  Quality issues arise when seals fail or labeling is inconsistent if there is dust present in any part of the packaging process

Designing a line that can overcome these challenges requires integrated packaging solutions that can evolve with consumer demands.
