What is Flexible Packaging?

What is Flexible Packaging?

Flexible Packaging means any package (or part of a package) that can change shape. It also has many sustainable features.

Flexible packaging includes, but is not limited to:

  • bags
  • pouches
  • liners
  • wraps utilizing paper, plastic, film, aluminum foil, metalized or coated paper or film, or any combination of these materials.

I was at the grocery store and noticed that even sour cream comes in a flexible packaging container.  How cool is that!

Benefits of Flexible Packaging:

  • Flexible packaging materials are light in weight, easily transported and handled, easy to open, store and reseal.
  • High-quality printing creates excellent shelf appeal and enables visibility of pack contents.
  • Flexible packaging offers consumer convenience.
  • Food packs indicate and maintain freshness, extending the shelf life of many products, especially food.

The recent industry buzz is all about more collaboration between consumer packaged goods companies, suppliers, and recycling facilities.

Flexible Packaging Can Be Sustainable

Are any of the following important to your customers?

  • Biodegradable packaging
  • Compostable packaging
  • Environmentally benign
  • recyclable
  • Repulpable
  • Contains recycled content
  • Water dissolvable
  • FSC certified

Sustainability is the focus of the material, adhesive, and ink suppliers driving change.  More about this in a future blog post.  Stay tuned.

As more and more companies learn about this solution, they are warming up to all of the possibilities.  We look forward to working with you and exploring your options.  We would be happy to send you samples of our work upon request.
