With digitization and smartphone penetration growing rapidly, great opportunities for food brand owners and marketers are popping up. To satisfy these megatrends and create opportunities for food brands to differentiate, our featured speakers will show you how to take back control over your content, your budgets, and your data in the digital age. Constantia Interactive’s latest research reveals that 69% of German consumers would either buy or take a product off of the shelf if it offers interactive packaging features – and this webinar will show you how to leverage this to benefit you.

The boom of digitalization and globalization determined changes in the food packaging industry as well. Traditionally, the packaging of food products only needed to be safe, increase shelf life and inform the consumer about the food products inside of the package. Nowadays, new technologies pave the way for improving consumer engagement and brand communication. The speakers will show you a way to connect your product to the digital world. You will learn about concrete solutions to reach the next level of consumer engagement with your food packaging.
