Generally, flexible packaging tends to be more efficient than rigid packaging because flexible packaging tends to use fewer materials in its composition. At the same time, these materials feature optimized properties for creating flexible packaging that provides a barrier against gas, fat, and moisture, supports different shapes and sizes, creates various opening and closing systems, supports recycling efforts, and is lightweight.
Flexible packaging also can be produced at a lower cost, which helps to broaden the customer base, while its production process ensures the total safety of the packaged product. The food safety provided by lightweight flexible metal packaging products is an essential benefit to the entire food industry.
