When it comes to packaging, often the newest, coolest, trendiest looking packaging steals the show.
In today’s packaging landscape, the “one-size-fits-all” approach to package design and development is fast becoming a thing of the past.
Traditionally, a package might have been designed to look great on the shelf in a point-of-sale environment. Then e-commerce sales happened. What began with a whisper some years ago, has continued to gradually increase in volume, and with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, has now reached a deafening roar.

As experts in enhancing package performance and quality through production, CMG is here and ready to help make the transition as easy as possible.

Certain items we find in nature have inherent qualities that may provide the clues we need to develop new types of packaging materials that are closer to the Earth. As an example, we value certain types of produce – like bananas, coconuts and oranges – for the characteristics they exhibit. (more…)
