Retail ready packaging (RRP), also known as shelf ready packaging, display ready packaging, and pallet ready packaging, refers to secondary packaging for retail products that arrives in a manner enabling items to go directly onto the shelf or selling floor without the need for unpacking of inner contents. RRP offers a number of advantages over traditional retail packaging in terms of labor costs, stock handling, and product visibility. RRP, which tends to be custom produced and offers high quality graphics, is attractive to box and display companies as a value-added specialty. Such packaging is appealing to retailers and brand owners, as it serves as a shipping container and remains on store shelves or retail floors, thereby aiding marketing efforts.

Demand for retail ready packaging is forecast to increase 5.2 percent annually to $6.2 billion in 2020, outpacing the overall packaging market average. Gains will be supported by further growth for mass retailers and club stores, and increased food and beverage sales volume in nontraditional outlets such as drug and dollar stores. Additionally, the proliferation of club stores and no-frills deep discount grocery stores will be especially important for RRP, as such stores primarily sell merchandise directly from secondary packaging and require their vendors to ship products in RRP. Among factors that will hinder growth is the lack of agreement among retailers as to standardized sizing and styles. The lack of standardization promotes some degree of resistance to RRP adoption among consumer packaged goods firms, which face increased packaging costs related to complying with multiple specifications demanded by different retailers. Companies mentioned include International Paper, WestRock, Georgia-Pacific (Koch Industries), Graphic Packaging, Menasha, and Packaging Corporation of America.
