Becky Donner, TricorBraun’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, Design & Engineering, to Present at New Conference Focused on Packaging for E-Commerce

Becky Donner, senior vice president of Marketing, Design & Engineering at global packaging leader TricorBraun, will discuss e-commerce opportunities for consumer packaged goods (CPG) brand owners at the inaugural E-Pack Summit in Chicago on September 18. She will demonstrate why an understanding of consumer behaviors can help brand owners better understand the packaging features and functionalities that will lead to sustained brand loyalty.

Donner will present “E-Commerce Growth & Consumer Behavior: What Packaging Providers Need to Know Today to Win Tomorrow” at Smithers Pira’s E-Pack, the first cross-sector conference focusing on technical discussions around leveraging the packaging industry to fulfill the growing e-commerce market.

“With e-commerce driving nearly all of U.S. CPG growth1, an e-commerce packaging strategy is a necessity,” said Donner. “Yet many CPG brands tell us they are repurposing packaging from brick and mortar to e-commerce channels with little change, risking a myriad of costly challenges, and creating a less than ideal experience for the consumer. Packaging for e-commerce requires brand owners to recognize how the consumer journey has evolved and winning in e-commerce means taking a more holistic approach to package development if brands want to drive sustainable growth and brand loyalty.”

Straight and neat: Consumers' thirst for spirits is growing

According to the Distilled Spirits Council, spirits gained market share for the eighth consecutive year, with sales rising to nearly 37 percent of the total alcohol market. We’ve been keeping a pulse on the spirits market for a long time, so the level of industry growth is not surprising. With more than 116 years of packaging expertise, TricorBraun has been advising beverage alcohol brands on how to align packaging with consumer preferences for decades.

Consumers are eager to learn about spirits, and millennials in particular are willing to open their wallets for high-end, premium spirits. In many industries, including spirits, this has meant a scrapping of “old world” brands that were revered by their parents. Meanwhile, brand owners are responding by creating excitement with new products and new ways to interact with consumers. Here are four ways changing consumer preferences are impacting the spirits market – and your packaging strategy.
