Convenience of packaging, carrying, and consumption has gained unprecedented importance among consumers today. Hence, food containers need to keep pace with the fast lifestyles that consumers lead. The number of women joining the workforce has multiplied several times in the past few years. This leads to families consuming packaged food or processed foods, which will in turn cause a higher demand for food containers.
