The ambient food market consists of extensively diverse product categories running into thousands of food products, from dried fruit and nuts to pasta and spices.

Packaging for this sector is driven by innovation and material solutions that allow ambient food manufacturers to retain quality and sustain longer shelf life for their products. Barrier technology is increasingly being incorporated into ambient food product packaging providing protection against environmental elements such as oxygen, water vapour, aroma, etc.

Increased competition across the sector with challenger brands and an increased number of retailer own brands, requires manufacturers and packaging companies to think outside the box with solutions that enhance pack visuals and create dynamic shelf appeal without compromising on functionality.
