Balancing raw material usage and environmental footprint while ensuring functionality and convenience remains paramount in the packaging industry. Superior shelf-life performance and barrier qualities compared to other substrates are key factors driving end-users to opt for film-based packaging solutions. Ultimately, packaging serves to both sell and protect goods, with flexible packaging excelling in this regard. The shift towards recyclable solutions with recycled content is prompting a reevaluation of specifications, while the push towards circularity is instigating transformative changes in the sector.
