There is no doubt that flexible packaging is a popular method for businesses to offer their products when selling to the public. But why have so many industries switched from singular rigid box packaging to flexible packaging? The are many reasons. It is lightweight and stores more in less space, maximizing your storage space and transportation budget. It is tough, effective, safe, and ecologically sound. In addition, it offers these benefits:
Flexible packaging is available in many different shapes, sizes, and films, which gives your product better protection against breakage and migration.
Flexible packaging provides re-closure and safe-dispensing options.
Flexible packaging provides a smooth surface for high-quality printed images, so it’s visually appealing on store shelves and to consumers.
Flexible packaging takes up considerably less space than more traditional rigid and some semi-rigid containers without compromising product quality. The space-saving nature of flexible materials also translates to fewer trips in a transport truck and lower carbon emissions.
Flexible packaging uses fewer resources, generates fewer emissions and creates less waste because it doesn’t require as much energy to manufacture and to transport. Overall it generates smaller quantities of greenhouse gases on its way to market.
When businesses switch from standard rigid packaging to flexible packaging, they make the decision to meet the demands of a changing world while gaining a stronger foothold in their market. Combining the best qualities of plastic, film, paper, and foil to address unique needs with minimal materials offers indisputable value. Whether you’re looking to improve product shelf life, be more creative with branding, decrease your company’s carbon footprint or achieve profitability and efficiency goals, it’s time to consider flexible packaging.
