Flexible Packaging, a growing market
Key indicators point to a 20% growth in flexible packaging consumption in the food sector between 2011 and 2016, a figure that reflects the importance of the flexible nowadays compared to other supports and the need to respond to the current requirements. And besides the condition of being a container, the great value of the packaging is its great communication ability. In an environment with an enormous difficulty in communicating the value of products, packaging defines the 'front line' to expose the values of the marketed product. The use of all resources currently offered by technology for the design and manufacture of packaging give companies and their products a high potential for differentiation.
