  • NUTRI SCORE – SIGNALS WITH GREAT EFFECT

    The Leuphana University of Lüneburg and the Nordakademie, University of Applied Sciences, have investigated consumer decision-making within their research work on consumer behaviour. In fact, consumers can be manipulated by having the “Nutri-Score” food traffic light on the packaging. The research tested in detail the role of different packaging features. According to Prof. Dr. Stefan Schaltegger, chairman for sustainability management at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg, the experiment was used to find out which representations on food packaging help to implement personal preferences for healthier and more sustainable eating.

    “Nudges” as “boosters The researchers have concluded that even small “nudges” – such as the Nutri Score – work and people who are very concerned about sustainability already react to them and decide to choose the healthier variety more often. By contrast, people who like to eat unheatlhier disregard this information. In research round about 500 test candidates were tested. The nudging concept, which originates from the economist Richard H. Thaler and the lawyer Cass Sunstein, was the starting point for this study. The main question is how to consolidate behaviour without prohibition or economic incentives. Despite the statement by Dr. Holger Petersen, Professor of Business Administration with a focus on sustainability management, that only little has changed, sustainability- and health-oriented consumers can be supported with a revised design of food packaging. Currently, the Nutri Score can already be found on individual foods in France and Germany. The Nutri Score is only yet a recommendation from the government and is not a mandatory statement.

    No food manufacturer is obliged to label their products with the Nutri-Score.

  • Aptar launches ROCKET sport cap

    “Aptar is dedicated to creating solutions based directly on consumer feedback,” Augustin De Tilly, global business development director beverage, said. “ROCKET was born from consumer insights to offer visual safety that provides reassurance, in addition to an improved drinking experience that brings the comfort and convenience consumers value.” In addition to its visible safety, ROCKET provides further safety to consumers with its “no-dust”, double wall lid design that protects the spout from external contaminants, in addition to being designed to adhere to child safety standards (BSDA & EN 71*). A large finger recess and audible closing “click” sound makes opening and closing ROCKET easy and reassuring to the consumers. De Tilly said the design and functionality of ROCKET enhances what consumers and brands expect from a sport cap. For example, while most caps open at a 110 - degree angle, ROCKET’s hinge technology offers a 180-degree angle. The hinge functionality also ensures the elimination of a lid spring-back effect. Altogether, ROCKET provides a wider opening and a more comfortable drinking experience. “Our goal was to develop a cap that met consumer expectations in terms of safety and comfort of drinking, while also addressing the increasing demand for sustainable packaging” De Tilly said. “Consumer and brand product standards are always evolving, and ROCKET was created to stay at the forefront of these changes.” With ROCKET, Aptar continues to focus on meeting new sustainability standards and targets. The tamper evident band is tethered to the bottle with the Stay-With system, which keeps the closure attached to the bottle through its lifecycle, and therefore increasing the likelihood of the closure being collected and sent through the recycling stream with the container. ROCKET complies with upcoming regulations, including the Single Use Plastic (SUP) directive proposal in Europe.
