New Packaging Development – NPD
New packaging can be an exciting time for your brand. Whether it’s for a new product or a refresh to existing SKU’s, bringing in a new component to market helps position your product amongst your competitors. It can also be an overwhelming move as it’s so important to get everything right from cost, and quality to timing. The development of packaging from concept to consumer can be complex because packaging impacts every part of your supply chain: It must comply with various regulations, quality standards, distribution and retailer requirements. Packaging is often the final consumer interface with your brand and product and so impact and functionality through to end-of-life management is critical.
Increasingly, consumers are demanding strong sustainability credentials meaning a well-designed pack must also have a positive environmental message to meet consumer expectations.
Circle provide a development map for your packaging project ensuring key decisions and milestones are seamlessly managed. We can coordinate all key project activities from finding the component supplier, customising the pack and ensuring the quality of the component for the intended use. We can handle your printer and repro management as well as testing and trialling to your timeline while managing project risk and stakeholder management.
