Making the Switch From

Rigid to Flexible Liquid Packaging


Do You Still Use Traditional Rigid Packaging for Liquid Food Products?

If you're a food processor or restaurant, you probably feel pressure to do more with less, cut costs, and improve your sustainability footprint. If you still use traditional metal cans, plastic jugs, and glass jars to package liquid food products, you aren't operating as efficiently as you could be. You’ve heard that flexible packaging can be good for business — but is that really true?

Making a Difference at Cucina Fresca

Cucina Fresca Gourmet Foods, a leading U.S. producer of natural, prepared pastas and sauces, increased their product offering to 130 products in more than 1,500 grocery stores, specialty shops, and food service channels within the U.S. The owner credits a portion of its growth to the CRYOVAC® brand vertical-form-fill-seal system, which enabled his business to:

  • Increase operational efficiency 
  • Eliminate hand-filling of sauce bags
  • Reduce time to empty sauce kettle from 1.5 hours to 11 minutes
“We have an OnPack 2045 vertical filler, and I have to say that has changed our business. That has gotten us into a playing field that I couldn’t imagine us ever being in.”
