Flexible Packaging

As sustainability takes center stage for manufacturers and the food industry, packaging plays a crucial role. Flexible packaging emerges as a superior solution, helping to mitigate waste. With roots dating back to tree bark and paper bags, the journey of flexible packaging has seen several milestones, from semi-flexible cardboard to corrugated cardboard, and plastics. Today, it's inkjet-printable flexible packaging that's revolutionizing industries such as food, coffee and tea, confectionery, cannabis, health and beauty, and more.

What is Flexible Packaging?

Flexible packaging is a form of packaging material, crafted from plastic or paper, capable of being molded into various shapes and sizes. In contrast to rigid packaging, flexible packaging offers users a more convenient storage solution. It safeguards contents by shielding them from light, air, moisture, and other contaminants that may compromise the product's integrity. From pharmaceuticals to electronics, flexible packaging has found its place in virtually every industry, earning its reputation as a vital innovation in modern marketing.

Why Choose Flexible Packaging?

Flexible packaging is the emblem of innovation in packaging, boasting eco-friendly attributes and myriad benefits for manufacturers, retailers, and consumers. These advantages include:

  • Environmental friendliness: Reduced packaging, waste, and consumption of water and energy in production.
  • Biodegradable materials: High biodegradability and compostability.
  • Extended product shelf life: Advantageous for both consumers and manufacturers.
  • Enhanced production efficiency: Less time, materials, and energy needed for packaging.
  • Convenience and lightness: Makes carrying and storage easier for consumers.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Less expensive and more efficient than rigid packaging.
  • Attractive packaging: Increases product visibility and freshness. Clear "windows" allow consumers to view the product, while zipper seals and other closures ensure freshness.
  • Creative design possibilities: Offers a platform for companies to engage with customers through striking, customized, or seasonal designs that can be printed on demand.

While flexible packaging benefits various industries, it's particularly useful for items with long shelf life or those requiring refrigeration. Flexible packaging is the preferred choice for food processors, coffee and tea companies, confectioners, and producers of nuts and dried fruit, aiming to preserve product freshness. The health and beauty industry is progressively adopting flexible packaging for improved sanitation and visibility. Pharmaceutical companies rely on flexible packaging for medicine storage, while manufacturers and retailers opt for it for efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Varieties of Flexible Packaging

Flexible packaging comes in a myriad of forms such as pouches, bags, sleeves, and wraps. These packaging types are widely used in the food industry and beyond. A few examples include:

  • Printed roll stock: Pre-printed with product information, ready to be formed into pouches.
  • Stock bags: Blank formed bags or pouches.
  • Pouches: Sealable with resealable zippers for convenience.
  • Stand-up pouches: Pouches designed with a flat bottom for upright display, commonly used for drink pouches and other products.
  • Flat packets: Often utilized for single-use products like medicine or as a protective envelope for fragile items.
  • Zipper bags: Clear polyester film bags with zipper closures and folds.
