11 Great Examples of Smart Packaging

What is Smart Packaging?

  • Active Packaging: The packaging itself improves the product. For example, food packaging made of materials that reduce the amount of moisture that reaches the food.
  • Intelligent Packaging: Packaging capable of intelligent functions, sensing that the product or the packaging itself has changed in some way.

Connected Packaging

  • Convey product information for prospective buyers in the store
  • Verify a product is not counterfeit through authentication services
  • Reassure buyers by confirming the product has not been opened or otherwise tampered with before purchase
  • Provide additional information about the product exclusive to buyers
  • Offer incentives for product registration to open a direct line of communication with consumers
  • Offer assembly instructions
  • Incentivize product registration
