Food Packaging Labels Help Consumers Find the Items They Are Searching For

By the time this Coronavirus quarantine is over, there are many indications that more Americans are going to know how to quickly scan spice packaging, pet food packaging, and every possible kind of resealable pouches that are used in other parts of the grocery store. For while there are many people who have been sent home from work during the last week and a half, it is evident that the grocery store workers are going to remain at the forefront these next few weeks. This means, of course, that there are also going to be more people hired to not only check out customers, but also to restock shelves at night.

As both large and small grocery stores hire more workers to keep up with the demand of more and more people staying at home, it is important to know that part of this process will include training workers how to safely and properly restock shelves and to carefully read everything from pet food packaging to vegetable packaging to make sure that stock is properly placed throughout stores that are busier than they have ever been.

Printed Pet Food Packaging Products Help Advertise Specific Brands

Most shoppers have entered a store in the past and often used the sight of their favorite products to guide them through the aisles. When it comes to some products like toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and the basic cooking essentials, however, many shoppers are no longer picky enough to hold out for their familiar pet food packaging or other popular brands of items. Instead, they are being what they can when they are able to find it. The challenge for grocery stores, of course, is to keep the shelves stocked, the stores clean, and the customers satisfied.

Consider some of these facts and figures about the many times when marketing does matter when it comes to how a person shops in a grocery store or other kind of retail location:

  • 40% of consumers would share a photo of a product on social media if the packaging were interesting, and in these days when some products are hard to find many more are doing so.
  • 66% of consumers have tried a new product because the packaging caught their eye, according to the 2016 West Rock Consumer Insights Study findings.
  • As many as 52% of online consumers indicate that they would return to a business for another purchase if they receive their products in premium packaging.
  • In fact, businesses that pay close attention to packaging have reported as much as a 30% increase in consumer interest.
  • 85% of shoppers said their purchase decisions are informed by reading a product package while shopping.
  • The average American supermarket holds more than 20,000 products, all competing to attract the attention of the consumer.
  • The latest research indicates that 62% of Americans read food labels.
  • Green tea contains a fairly small amount of caffeine at about 20 to 45 milligrams for an eight ounce cup, so it is important that consumers pay close attention to the information that is included on labels.
  • Nearly 78% of the tea that is consumed internationally is black, and only about 20% is green tea, so it is important to make sure that you understand what kind of product you are buying.
  • Canned dog and cat food need to be stored in an area with a temperature between 50 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit prior to opening the can, so it is essential that this information be included on the printed packaging.

Many consumers have relied on the information that is included on packaging to understand what they are buying. From ingredients to nutritional values and shelf life, the packaging on all kinds of packaging guide consumers in the kind of purchases that they make. In times when items are literally flying off the shelves in grocery stores across the country, there will likely be many more workers needed to keep these shelves stocked. And while the most popular brands will likely still be the ones that sell out the fastest, there are going to be many consumers who are going to be buying what they can when they find it until the current health and economic situation calms down.
