Why choose flexible packaging?
HIGH PROTECTION AND ECONOMIC USE OF MATERIALS
Products that are sensitive to light, oxygen or moisture need to be protected to maintain their integrity. Our flexible packaging offers the necessary protection while using ten times less material than in rigid packaging.
Advantages: Economic use of materials and optimal protection
IDEAL FOR VACUUM PACKING
Owing to the flexibility of our pouches, even the most sensitive products can be vacuum packed. By reducing the residual oxygen in the pouch to under 0.5%, product life can be extended while reducing or even eliminating any need for refrigeration. For some applications, vacuum packing offers consumers ultra-fresh products with no need to pasteurise or sterilise them.
Advantages: Extra long life while preserving the quality of the product
Our R&D teams constantly strive to improve the functionality of our packaging. By means of a simple “K” weld, less product remains trapped at the bottom; likewise the addition of handles and special spouts makes our pouches more than just a container for the product. Their designs help to facilitate and make our customers’ production processes safer.
Advantages: Customised design
SPACE SAVING, LESS CO2
Flexible packaging can be stored flat before being filled, thus requiring ten times less transport space. The same applies to their storage, both before and after use. By optimizing storage and transportation volumes, logistics costs are significantly reduced, as well as the environmental impacts of the packaging.
