Following the COVID-19 outbreak is a significant change in people's lifestyle. Early this year, while people stayed home and worked from home, many restaurants and food sellers had shifted to delivery services. Online food ordering applications have become more popular and it is likely to continue and grow rapidly in the future as people adopt the new normal lifestyle.
Food ordering application is the latest tool for restaurant owners and marketers to enable them to seize the opportunity. Such application provides consumers with more convenience and speed. Restaurant owners, meanwhile, enjoy higher benefits from consumers' reviews and satisfaction for food quality, taste, price and value for money, which can be used as references for others.
"Quality, good taste, value for money and safety are all the key essences for restaurant business to win customers' loyalty," said Mr. Chaiwat Nantiruj, Group CEO of Eka Global, a leading longevity packaging producer. "High review score definitely boosts sales without much efforts. In contrast, low review scores would put pressure on the business,".
Longevity packaging is, therefore, more important as it can significantly extend food product shelf life. High quality longevity packages can also keep the product taste and quality as good as it is freshly cooked. In addition, food safety and convenience are among the factors driving higher demand for longevity packaging. For food producers, such packaging can also facilitate business growth in the time where consumers adopt new normal lifestyle.
Chaiwat noted that in 2021, demand for innovative packaging would be increasing in local market. It will also become the future trend because COVID-19 has encouraged consumers worldwide, especially the US, Japan, South Korea, Australia and many European countries, to look for food packaging that ensure them of food safety, quality and good taste.
