Noida, 03 April 2017:Have you felt the angst of standing under the shower trying to tear a shampoo sachet which simply refused to yield and finally you had to bite it open? Quite a nightmare --- isn’t it?
Constantia Flexibles has invested roughly €6 million in new technology to manufacture film-based flexible packaging at its site in Weiden, Germany. These investments will meet growing demand for specialty laminates such as stand-up pouches, with high property barriers, in the confectionery, processed food (coffee, dry food and snacks) and processed meat industries.
A major UK supermarket has slashed the amount of packaging used for its popular snacks such as crisps and popcorn by reducing the pocket of air at the top of the bag. As a result of so-called ‘Project Thin Air’, more than 140 of Marks & Spencer’s best-selling products have been redesigned and repackaged in smaller, less bulky packets containing the same amount of food as before. The biggest reductions have been achieved in the retailer’s popular popcorn range, with a 37% slimming down in pack size.
Introducing our stand-out, innovative snack pack concept that taps into the on-the-go convenience market. Delivering strong brand identity and on-shelf aesthetics for retailers, the novel design features a laser-perforated lid that allows consumers to snap off one pack and keep the rest sealed for later.
The flexible packaging company used a specially-developed film structure and advanced laser-score technology to create the pull away panel, with the resulting pack robust enough to withstand the rigours of the supply chain, but still easy to open.
