The shareholders sold FFP to Constantia Flexibles

Sale of UK’s #1 sustainable flexible food laminates innovator

Since its foundation in 1967, FFP Packaging Solutions has been driving the (r)evolution of the UK flexible packaging market through its leading-edge packaging innovations, particularly with respect to high-end functionality and sustainability credentials.
FFP is recognised as the expert for recyclable monomaterial laminates offering flexo printed flow wraps, lidding films, and pre-made pouches. Already today, FFP generates over 80% of its sales in sustainable packaging.
The company’s success is moreover based on its strong ties across the British food landscape, as FFP is the go-to body of knowledge regarding sustainable packaging for food producers, brands, retailers, policy makers and sustainability stakeholders alike.
Constantia Flexibles is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of flexible packaging. The acquisition of FFP is perfectly aligned with the group’s vision to create packaging with the highest benefit for the customer at the lowest impact on the environment. FFP further adds the group’s first consumer packaging site in the UK.
The deal allowed a complete exit of the founding family shareholders enabling FFP’s next level of growth driven by the existing management team.
