Robyn Smith - President/Publisher: Len Prazych - Vice President Ian Lifshitz is Vice President of Sustainability & Stake- holder Relations at Asia Pulp & Paper Canada that recent- ly won the Sustainability Product of the Year award for its Foopak Bio Natura line of food packaging products. Reach him at those in the food packaging sectors want, need new func- tional and sustainable options. As countries, states and cities have reopened, curbside restaurant pickup continues to rise. In March of this year, the most significant growth segments in the restaurant in- dustry is the food take-a-way sector with food delivery and take-away orders nationwide skyrocketing 67 percent in March and digital restaurant orders jumped 63 percent, according to market research firm NPD Group. Additional- ly, according to a survey conducted by Online CARAVAN Omnibus and the published results found in 2019 Paper & Packaging Consumer Trends Report, research shows three in five adults (60 percent) of U.S. consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable options. It’s up to the converter to understand the global trends, innovate and deliver to these new market shifts. Moving Forward As we move forward, turning to the past will likely de- liver some of our solutions. Spending more time with fam- ily, traveling less for work will impact our personal lives, while things like the reassurance of paper, recyclable and compostable will reduce negative effects that impact our environment. This too has resulted in opportunities. For converters who can innovate, understand market trends, and creatively develop solutions can thrive in this chang- ing environment.
