Can Private Brand Lead Packaging Innovation.

cubis1

This package design from Cubis Ltd introduces evolutionary beverage container Cubis, a new packaging concept designed for the grab-and-go generation with a one-hand action for opening and closing. Cubis is the world’s first stackable plastic beverage container with a flip-top cap that reduces CO2 emissions and maximizes the retailers’ shelf value. This is the type of innovation the retailers should be first to market with. Strong design that maximizes shelf space and can truly differentiate a private brand. All of the retailers, manufacturers and agencies who envied the Target cereal launch this past year have the opportunity to be first to market with this one.

Who will be first to market?

Official release date is September 15th during Foodtec, where Cubis is shortlisted for the Beverage Innovation Awards in Munich.”
