Packaging plays a crucial role in the marketing of a product and its perception by consumers.
In 2019, packaging accounted for one in five food innovations, underscoring the growing importance placed on the presentation and packaging of products. Today, packaging trends in the field of food supplements are evolving, highlighting the need to adopt more sustainable and environmentally friendly approaches.

Security and aesthetics: closure system trends
Closure systems are gaining importance, with trends such as tabs, foils, and security devices. These elements, in addition to ensuring product safety, also contribute to the overall aesthetics of the packaging.
Current developments in the packaging of food supplements demonstrate a shift towards choices that are both aesthetic and environmentally friendly, in response to the growing expectations of consumers.
