Sustainable packaging

Driven by retailers and consumers seeking products made with fewer resources, the demand for sustainable flexible packaging solutions is rising steadily. Less material consumption reduces the impact on the environment, therefore downgauging is one of the targets, allowing lighter weight by using thinner materials and reducing the number of layers.

Experience-oriented packaging design

Consumers are increasingly looking for user-friendly and functional packaging designs that provide added value such as convenience in consuming, opening and re-closing of products. Such designs are also in line with the growing global demand for ease of use, safety, sustainability and product appeal.
