Over packaging

I was disturbed the other day to open up the pack of instant oatmeal to gone the box only half full. I double checked and there was the right amount of packs in the box. Now these were the paper wrapped individual packets in a cardboard box. They are not delicate like chips or died pasta. The manufacturer wouldn’t need to specially air protect the product and unless someone gives me a reason to suspect otherwise, I can’t think of why they would need the box packed so loosely. The six packs that came in the box fit perfectly on one side of the box, as shown. A whole other row could fit for the amount of cardboard used. What a waste. Write manufacturer if you see this because this is a misuse of resources.
