How a Food Packaging Company Mitigated Its Issues Through Product Analysis?

A food packaging company that was launched as a startup later found itself stuck between manufacturing and marketing troubles in fierce market competition, although the quality of the product was good enough.

An overview:


A food packaging company was struggling with less revenue and customers after their launch of biodegradable packaging materials such as plant-based plastics.


The continuity of less attraction of consumers to the product came as a surprise to the company as sustainability was its first motto.
