Though current stay-at-home orders and dining restrictions vary around the world, the need for convenience has become truly universal.

On the retail side, consumers are stocking up on essentials with fewer shopping trips and supplementing their purchases with premium-quality meal kits inspired by their favorite restaurants. The shopping experience has become even more convenient with the rise of virtual brands and ghost kitchens.

One restaurant group in Chile, for example, has launched a digital market where consumers can purchase their most popular menu items (hotdogs, burgers, barbecue and snacks) to cook at home. In Indonesia, a Taiwanese café offers ready-to-cook family-style portions of traditional dishes alongside their carryout menu. And in China, a popular hot pot chain sells its broth bases in packaged formats for consumers to experience from the comfort of their home.

Operators continue to make dining more convenient and safe for guests, offering curbside pickup, dedicated walk-up windows and seamless digital ordering. Of course, with reliance on carryout and delivery comes the need for tamper-proof packaging that’s lightweight yet durable, affordable and environmentally friendly. An Egyptian startup is working to connect consumers to local fruit and vegetable vendors via WhatsApp, with deliveries packed in paper to minimize plastic waste. Innovation in the “plant-based packaging” space may uncover new solutions that maintain the integrity of delivery dishes while demonstrating an operator’s commitment to sustainability.


When it comes to delivery, packaging solutions and portability, attention to detail is everything. Chef Jonny Tomlin shares how our solutions, such as Flavor Glaze and Creative Coaters, can help products maintain their crisp and crunch while adding bold flavor that holds up during delivery.



Speed and delivery have been greatly accelerated due to COVID and will increase convenience expectations for the years to come.



Protein can help satiate consumers conveniently and quickly in snacks and customizable protein powders—or provide even more satisfying fuel in ready-to-go meals.



CPG snacks are an easy and obvious path to convenience. The next level of convenience will consider multi-compartments and mix-ins, verging on mini meals.
