The following isWith convenience one of the overriding trends in the packaged foods industry, new forms and sizes of packaging are revolutionizing what it means to be convenient and taking the notion of convenience to ever greater heights. Grab-and-go soups, seasoned tuna salad in pouches, vacuum-packed steaks and chicken breasts, ready-to-brew coffee in pods—all these and more are changing the way Americans eat and cook.
In a unique new trend-based format developed by Packaged Facts, Convenience Foods Packaging and Serving Size Trends examines convenience packaging and serving size trends across a broad range of food categories, from prepared meals to snacks and beverages, covering the full range of storage temperatures (frozen, refrigerated, and shelf-stable) as well as different serving sizes, from single-serve portions and bite-size minis to family packs and resealable eat-now/eat-later options.

It provides up-to-date case histories of industry-changing packaging innovations, including those from smaller, up-and-coming companies; spotlights new products and current distribution trends; and pinpoints trends and marketing opportunities.
