Flexible Packaging is the Solution for Sustainable Brand Management.
CL&D's goal is to minimize the overall footprint on the environment through responsible business practices including environmental preservation, energy conservation, recycling and reuse. We collaborate with our customers from project inception through introduction working to optimize the balance between package preservation, protection and the item’s presence in the marketplace. In design processes, we continue to push for gauge reduction and simplification, where possible, eliminating over-packaging.
Today consumers are focusing on convenience and social responsibility. Social change and individual-sized portions are becoming important in future packaging design. Sustainable-driven packaging is more than reducing use of non-renewable resources – it’s also about efficient cost savings. Converting from rigid to flexible packaging creates:
Better Handling Capabilities
Flexible Packaging is an innovative product that has numerous diverse product categories including reclosure and dispensing options.
Packaging that weighs less results in less waste and reduced transportation costs.
Flexible Packaging enables single-serve packaging and visibility of contents.
Reduced Energy Consumption
Flexible packaging consumes less energy in manufacturing, reduces carbon footprint and associated costs, and generates less greenhouse gas emissions.
Increased Shelf Life & Decreased Shelf Space
The barrier properties of flexible packaging keeps food fresher, longer and contributes to an increased shelf life. A better product-to-package ratio!
A small amount of packaging material can contain a large amount of product (a better product-to-package ratio), enables single-serve packaging and contributes less to landfill waste.
