If there’s one challenge that manufacturers and packaging experts all face, it is cost management. Ensuring the packaging of a product is of the highest quality while reducing cost is a challenging task. However, flexible packaging can meet the challenge. It isn’t only a cost-effective option but also durable, customizable, and environmentally-friendly. Let’s review how flexible packaging reduces the cost for manufacturers.
Lightweight and recyclable
The films used for flexible packaging are made of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDP) and high-density polyethylene (HDEP). These materials can be recycled, and therefore, help in saving the environment. Although these films are lightweight, they offer top barrier protection and safety. Because of the optimal strength, durability, and resistance, they also last longer. These features ultimately help manufacturers save money in the long run while being environmentally responsible.
Higher product-to-package ratio
Sustainable, flexible packaging is typically smaller in size, resulting in a higher product-to-package rate. This factor not only has a positive impact on the environment but also helps reduce extra manufacturing costs over using packaging options that are denser and more rigid.
Uses compostable materials
A majority of the flexible pouches in today’s market are made of compostable materials. Because of this trend, the most is made of available resources for efficient energy consumption and maximum waste prevention. The high durability of these materials further makes flexible packaging a more practical option for manufacturers and packaging strategists.
When you consider these points, it’s easy to see how flexible packaging allows manufacturers to achieve their goals, both financially and environmentally.
