Retail Ready Packaging

As Quoted In Refrigerated & Frozen Foods

Mass retailers & club stores to drive RRP growth

Retail ready packaging (RRP), also known as shelf ready packaging, display ready packaging, and pallet ready packaging, refers to secondary packaging of retail products that arrives all set to go directly onto the shelf or selling floor without the need for unpacking of inner contents. Gains for RRP will be supported by further growth of mass retailers and club stores, and increased food and beverage sales volume in nontraditional outlets such as drug and dollar stores.

Increased openings of smaller-format locations by mass retailers will also promote gains for RRP, as these stores carry a more limited product selection than their traditional counterparts and have fewer employees. These stores can benefit from RRP’s ability to speed stocking of shelves and increase shelf space efficiency. In addition, 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. The lack of standardization promotes a 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.

Corrugated boxes, food packaging will dominate demand

Corrugated boxes, which represent more than 50 percent of total demand, will provide the strongest opportunities. Growth will be supported by expansion in the retail user base and a greater presence of value-added box types. Gains for retail ready corrugated floor displays, folding cartons, and reusable plastic containers (RPCs) will be more moderate than those for boxes, but will still be aided by overall retail trends promoting a greater use of RRP.

Food is the predominant market for RRP, accounting for almost three-fourths of demand in 2015. Through 2020, growth in food uses will be fueled by labor cost savings resulting from reduction of product handling requirements during stocking.
