In packaging formats such as slider zipper pouches, consumer convenience is kept at the epicentre. Pouches combined with closures such as press to close zip and slider zip. For instance, slider zipper pouches can now be infused with product categories, such as, consumer goods like lawn and garden products, electrical & electronics products. Innovations like these are appealing to the premium and high end brand manufacturers, which is also elevating the brand perception of customers and their willingness to pay more for the add-on value.
