With consumer eating and drinking habits constantly changing, we look back at some of the new SIG-packed products designed to meet today’s big trends.
As in any consumer industry, food and beverage producers are driven by trends. Urbanisation, digitalisation and on-the-go lifestyles are all changing the way we live, work and consume – creating new consumer needs and ever-greater industry demands.
In this trend-driven market, it’s crucial for producers to keep up and meet today’s needs – offering innovative products in innovative packaging. And no one understands this better than SIG. In the past 12 months, we’ve helped our customers launch a range of on-trend food and drink products that truly stand out.
Here’s a rundown of the top trends and the SIG-packed products to meet them…
Plant-based milks and drinks are booming as some consumers perceive dairy-free products to be healthier and more sustainable for the environment. In fact, according to Mintel, non-dairy milk sales have increased steadily over the past five years, growing an impressive 61% since 2012.
The dairy-free macadamia milk manufacturer, Milkadamia, sources its nuts from ‘free-range trees’ in Australia and launched its new vanilla creamer in our convenient carton bottle – combidome.

Healthy and natural living
People are prioritising healthy and natural living as part of the growing healthstyle and organic trends. This means consumers are not only thinking more about healthy eating. They’re actively buying natural food and beverages that improve their health, taste great and save them time.
