To stay on the leading edge of technology and offer the best packaging solutions to customers, manufacturers need to watch trends in other industries. An October 2017 survey, published in Packaging Trends by the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies (PMMI), found that 22% of respondents from the meat, poultry and seafood segment are currently using flexible packaging for all products. Additionally, 62% reported that they plan to shift to more flexible packaging. PMMI concluded this trend is related to the benefits of flexible packaging – longer shelf life, convenience, sustainability, and innovation.
Since 1955, Liquipak has helped customers in a wide range of industries to take advantage of flexible packaging. Our extensive liquid and semi-liquid packaging expertise provide manufacturers with a reliable, cost-effective solution of superior quality for their contract packaging needs. Flexible packaging starts with fewer resources, has the ability to package more product in a single container to maximize available space, reducing transportation costs because fewer truckloads are needed to transport the flexible-packaged product.
