Our work is so much more impactful than simply converting bags and pouches. Innovations in packaging over the last several decades have provided practical alternatives to traditional materials like glass, aluminum and rigid plastic. Flexible packaging is unique because it is specifically designed for what it will protect, and it can also conform to the shape of the product inside. Compared to traditional materials, flexible packaging requires less material to create, uses less energy to convert, and consumes less fuel to ship because it can be moved in such high quantities with fewer truckloads.

Flexible packaging accounts for less than 3% of landfill space, and recyclable pouches have recently arrived in the marketplace. Advanced film structures also outperform rigid materials in preserving the freshness of products, reducing food waste and diminishing the risks of spoilage and illness. All things considered, contributing to the flexible packaging industry means we are practicing environmental, social, and financial responsibility.

It’s pretty simple. Less resources, less waste, smaller footprint. For us, it means high satisfaction in knowing our work matters.
