Flexible packaging offers a number of important advantages over conventional packaging.

  • Visibility: much greater, with two large surfaces that can be used in the best possible way to present their contents with top quality printing. The shaping makes products much more attractive to consumers.
  • Portion packing: single servings can be individually packaged. Flexible materials make it much easier to switch from one format to another.
  • Less waste: flexible packaging prevents waste. Waste can be caused by packaging that is inappropriate for its contents, too large or too difficult to empty. Flexible packaging makes it easy to consume all the package’s contents.
  • Shelf life: guaranteed by use of a number of laminated materials, each with different properties, to protect the product contained against a variety of risk factors: permeability to oxygen, steam, light and loss of protective atmosphere.
  • Convenience: the package may be adapted in response to requirements (stand-up, 3 seams, side gussets, resealing zipper, handles, dispensers, etc.)
  • Machinability: a variety of proposals make automation of the filling process easier




Flexible packaging is good for the planet, because:

  • It requires much smaller quantities of raw materials than conventional packaging, permitting savings of about 75%;
  • It takes up less space and weighs less, making storage and transportation easier and permitting significant savings on resources;
  • It drastically reduces CO₂ emissions generated in its production;
  • It permits food to be kept fresh, lengthening shelf life and thereby reducing waste.
