Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of their wastage footprint however with plastic products and packaging being integral in everyday life, only 14% of this is being recovered/recycled. The machinery market is constantly working on innovative ways to reduce film wastage and energy consumption. Offering a variety of solutions that are both affordable and productive.
Reclosable sealing with flow wrapped packaging is hitting the market like a storm, allowing for consumers to keep their product fresher for longer by resealing the package whilst reducing plastic compared to classic thermo-formed packs by 50%. This form of packaging is very cost effective and still allows for the complete surface of the packaging to be used for marketing communications.
