Adding Convenience to Busy Mornings with McCormick's New Custom Printed Pouches


The familiar spice retailer McCormick has recently introduced a series of new breakfast slow-cooker seasoning packets to their offerings.

Packaged in brightly colored custom printed pouches, the seasoning packets also include recipes for their use. The seasoning packets are directly in line with McCormick’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint, while also creating innovative new solutions for flavoring food in today’s fast-paced world.


By choosing custom printed pouches for their new seasonings packaging, McCormick was able to print more information on the sides of the packet, such as recipes and tips for use. Creating a product that is convenient to use, but still offers a unique flavor profile, is appealing to the interests of today’s consumers. With less time to cook, consumers today are looking for products that can offer interesting flavors while also saving time in the kitchen.

Printed on the back of the custom printed pouches, along with recipes for use, is a clear and concise list of the seasoning packets’ ingredients.

They employ only five major ingredients, part of a minimal approach to food that is becoming more and more popular among current consumers who are looking for products made from a smaller number of ingredients that they can recognize and pronounce.

The Good Morning Breakfast Slow-Cooker Packets come in four distinct flavors, each one corresponding to at least two simple slow-cooker recipes meant to be prepared with the addition of just a few ingredients that can be found in most kitchens. While the seasonings’ packaging directs users to apply the product to a simple slow cooker recipe, ultimately, the consumer is able to choose how they use the seasoning packets, allowing for endless recipe applications and a degree of customizability that today’s customers are looking for.

McCormick’s slow-cooker packets are part of a growing number of products that emphasize the unique value of customization.

As people’s diets become more specialized and health-conscious, food products like seasoning packets, which can be tailored to suit a variety of diets, are growing in popularity. By choosing to package their seasonings in custom printed pouches, McCormick has ensured that their product isn’t lost in the crowd.

What LEGO’s Sustainable Packaging Teaches Us About Overseas Innovation

Since 1949, children across the globe have fawned over tiny, plastic, interlocking bricks.

LEGOs are a not only a classic toy but a staple in many households. Many kids beg their parents to take them to the majestic LEGOLAND, an amusement park where all their wishes and dreams could come true.

Why Nestlé, Unilever & PepsiCo are Banning Oxo-degradable Plastic Packaging

Originally marketed as an eco-friendly packaging material, new evidence regarding the potentially negative impact of oxo-degradable plastics has led a number of companies and governments to restrict their use.

More than 150 companies and global organizations, including Nestlé, Unilever and PepsiCo, have recently endorsed a total ban on the material in light of its potentially negative environmental impact.

Oxo-degradable plastic packaging, which includes select plastic pouch bags, is often marketed as a solution to plastic pollution because it claims to degrade into harmless residues within a period ranging from a few months to several years. However, oxo-degradable plastics do not degrade into harmless residues, but instead, fragment into tiny shards of plastic that actually contribute to plastic pollution.

Often, consumers think that because a material is biodegradable, it can be composted or even littered on the ground, because, it is thought, the material will break down into nothing over time. This actually ends up leading to an increase in pollution, since consumers don’t end up recycling or repurposing the material, and misconceptions about how the plastic will degrade leads them to end up putting it back into landfills.

What is important to note in this case is that although oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable, being biodegradable does not necessarily mean that a material is eco-friendly. Although these plastics do break down over time, the tiny pieces they break down into are still plastics that contribute to pollution — they do not degrade into nothing or into another usable substance.

For companies looking to make the switch to sustainable packaging, it is important to consider that sustainable packaging does not necessarily mean biodegradable packaging, and vice versa.

Why New FDA Guidelines Could Bring Big Changes to Pet Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are demanding transparency and accountability from all types of products, and pet food is no exception.

Greater scrutiny over pet food ingredients, and an increasing demand for responsibility, sustainability and complete transparency from pet food manufacturers is driving change within the industry. As the consumer demand for “clean” pet food labeling evolves as a major topic within the world of pet packaging, FDA guidelines are shifting.
