Increase Sales with Reusable Packaging

The competitive retail landscape demands a superior experience, whether in-store or direct-to-consumer. Reusable packaging helps retailers deliver quality through any channel, enhancing the shopping experience through eye-catching displays, better product protection and freshness, and a clear message of environmental commitment to shoppers.

Reusable packaging helps boost sales in three important ways:

Higher product quality

Sturdy reusable packaging is designed to protect product and keep perishables fresher, longer. In fact, 50% of shoppers surveyed reported that produce displayed in RPCs appeared fresher and higher quality; 45% said they’d pay more for produce displayed in RPCs.

Attractive display

Designed for both supply chain efficiency and consumer appeal, retail-ready and e-commerce optimized reusable packaging enhances consumers' shopping experience through attractive designs that blend form with function.

Clear eco-messaging

Whether in-store or online, consumers are increasingly looking for low and zero packaging options to reduce waste. By using reusable packaging, retailers send a clear message of their commitment to the environment to their shoppers.
