25 Single-Use Packaging Innovations

From Single-Serve Coffee Packs to Individual Festive Treats

— January 7, 2021 — Marketing
These single-use packaging innovations range from compact coffee pouches to festive marshmallow treats that are meant to be enjoyed individually.

When it comes to the food sector, standouts include convenient snacks like Hu's vegan and paleo-friendly chocolate bars, packed in single-serve wrappers. The snacks are not only ideal for on-the-go enjoyment but are also strategically packaged for portion control, helping health-conscious consumers stick to diet goals. On the beverage end, stel+mar's eco-friendly wine pouches are another standout and are available in a variety of wine types and in 500 ml tetra paks. The packaging goes beyond convenience to feature eco-friendly material choices.

Other single-use packaging innovations include pandemic-friendly soap sheets from Urban Outfitters and McGlovin's individually packaged single-use disposable gloves. Both products are ideal for on-the-go use and that help wearers stay safe and germ-free wherever they are.
