Global Pouch West

Great packaging changes often look deceptively simple. But, like an iceberg, there is always a lot going on under the surface. Design, engineering, and marketing teams must work together to bring new-to-the-world concepts to market. The most successful packaging innovations occur when they are fueled by consumer insights and employ a cross-functional team, working through the process concurrently.

Global innovation design firm Continuum will share their process through the lens of their collaboration with Daisy Brand, for whom they designed the Daisy Squeeze sour cream pouch—the dairy industry’s first inverted foil pouch. Continuum successfully leveraged consumer understanding from in-context observation and technical requirements, while coordinating with several specialty partners in materials and manufacturing.
