Don't Get Stuck in Your Rigid Ways — Break the Mold With Flexible Packaging

Switching Liquid Food & Beverage Products From Rigid to Flexible Packaging

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

If you're a food and beverage processor or food service operator, 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 or beverage products, you aren't operating as efficiently as you could be. And as we see the costs of rigid containers rising — particularly during shortages — it's even more reason to consider an alternative. You’ve heard that flexible packaging can be good for business — but is that really true?
