Tucked away between Kansas and Kentucky, Missouri is easily overshadowed by these two more popular states. However, this unassuming Midwestern state has its fair share of delightful sites and thrilling activities anyone can enjoy. Starting from Branson, this place in southwest Missouri is a haven for country music fans. On the other side, Branson also has beautiful natural spots like Talking Rocks Cavern and Table Rock Lake State Park. Moving to St. Louis, they have the Forest Park that occupies over 1,300 acres and draws millions of visitors yearly. Considered as one of the most beautiful urban parks around the globe, you can also find many of St. Louis’s top cultural attractions in this park.

At Kansas City, MO lies the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, home to beautiful artwork pieces from all over the world. There, you can find ancient artworks of Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, and early Christians. Another must-visit museum in Missouri is Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum at Hannibal. It’s an adjoining museum that’s composed of two buildings.

Why flexible packaging is important for snack foods

Modern consumers are now leaning towards packaging that will keep their baked and snack products fresh and tasty and provide easy-to-consume, single-serve portions to match with their busy lifestyles. As such, packaging designers and manufacturers are on a constant lookout on flexible packaging options.

Flexible packaging is highly sought-after and widely used as it accounts for nearly 40% of packages globally. In terms of flexible packaging, the largest industry that benefits the most to it is the food industry which includes snack foods. This aligns with the consumers’ growing awareness of the various health benefits of eating snacks like dried fruits, protein bars, nuts, and more. In most scenarios, snack food packaging designs are more on smaller pouches. As such, even the food industry, in general, is now gearing up to shift to flexible packaging due to its convenience, easy-to-open features, and small sizes.

Essential features of a good snack packaging system

Portion control

Many prefer single-portion snack foods over the conventional, sit-down meals since the former is more convenient and easier to get the nutrition they need. Small-portioned snack foods are also quick, convenient, and don’t need formulation. As a result, small pack sizes and single-serve options have become the standard due to this health and wellness trend as well as the growing number of smaller households. Moreover, tons of brands are targeting the excitement of younger consumers using in-pack product samples or limited edition packs.

Resealability

A resealable closure makes the snack on-the-go. With its benefit of keeping the products fresh for longer periods, it’s no wonder why zippered, stand-up bags and pouches are very popular. A resealable bag also helps reduce food waste due to its ability to extend the shelf-life of the food. Consequently, this promotes better portion control without having to worry about the food getting spoiled. Also, resealable packaging aids with the single-serve trend.
