Cost management is a challenge all product manufacturers and packaging experts face. Ensuring the product’s packaging is of the highest quality while reducing cost can be a daunting task. However, flexible packaging has made finding solutions that meet those needs much easier. There are several cost-cutting factors flexible packaging offers.
Lightweight and Recyclable
The films used for flexible packets are made of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDP) and high-density polyethylene (HDEP). Although these films are lightweight, they’re safer and offer high-barrier protection. Optimal strength, durability, and resistance mean that they last longer to help manufacturers save money in the long run. Additionally, these materials can be recycled, which is better for the environment.
Higher Product-to-Package Ratio
Sustainable, flexible packaging is typically smaller in size, utilizing a higher product-to-package ratio. This feature lowers manufacturing costs when compared to producing packaging that is denser and more rigid. The better product-to-package ratio also has a positive impact on the environment.
Most of the flexible pouches we see in the market are made of compostable materials. For this reason, flexible packing is able to take advantage of the available resources for efficient energy consumption and maximum waste prevention.
The ruggedness of flexible packaging materials makes it a more convenient and practical option for manufacturers and packaging strategists. This “toughness” allows for better protection of the product from damage or contamination, reducing the risk of product recalls.
Considering these points, it’s easy to see how liquid packaging has made it easier for manufacturers to achieve both their financial and environmental goals. In addition to the fact that flexible packaging reduces cost, manufacturers benefit from improved production efficiency while saving time and resources.
