Flexible packaging maintains and indicates the freshness for the products it protects. In fact, flexible packaging extends the shelf life of many products, especially food, and has a positive sustainability profile.
Flexible packaging requires less water and energy to manufacture and transport, and generates small quantities of greenhouse gases on its way to market. Thanks to its efficiency in product to package ratios, flexible packaging ultimately results in less consumer waste being sent to landfills.
