Packaged Facts' brand-new report, Food and Beverage Packaging Innovation in the U.S.: Consumer Perspectives, is divided into three sections:

1) The first section focuses on packaging types and materials, and the state of recycling.

2) The second part of the report analyzes extensive data from a proprietary Packaged Facts National Consumer Survey conducted in April 2015, and Simmons National Consumer Survey data from Experian Marketing Services, as well as other published surveys, to delve deeply into what features today's consumers are seeking in food and beverage packaging.

3) The final chapter presents key demographic, lifestyle, and eating trends that are affecting packaging use and decisions, and considerations that play important roles in the messages marketers convey. Cited are more than 50 examples of recently introduced food and beverage products along with photographs or diagrams.
