PROSPECTS
Grinding closures benefit from upmarket demand trend

The upmarket shift in demand in herbs and spices is supporting the replacement of plastic dispensing closures with small holes by grinding closures. Glass is widely associated with a premium image and is the primary material used in packaging for premium herbs and spices.

Stand-up pouches continue to expand strongly

Stand-up pouches continued to record strong growth in sauces, dressings and condiments at the end of the review period, supported by the ongoing growth in demand for Western-style sauces, such as pasta sauces and ketchup. Consumers appreciate stand-up pouches because they are less fragile and cheaper than alternative formats.

Glass bottles support upmarket image

While PET bottles’ lightness of weight and robustness are helping the pack type to gain share from glass bottles in soy sauces, glass is retaining its importance in the premium segment. As in other product categories, glass is strongly associated with a premium image in sauces, dressings and condiments.
