The consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry in the US is undergoing significant change, according to a recently published report by prevedere in conjuction with Coresight Research. Consumer preferences are shifting rapidly and retailers are adapting in the face of heightened competition. This has forced CPG companies to get even more agile and lean. To do this, they must shift to digital technologies and integrated systems.
The packaging design and print processes are ripe with opportunities to digitize for the purpose of increasing a CPG’s responsiveness through production for their brand packaging supply chain. There is a need to not only support a shorter time to market, but also drive costs out of the process. Customizable solutions from X-Rite Pantone provide our customers the opportunity to do both and deliver quantifiable results such as:
