Flexible packaging is one of the fastest growing segments in the packaging industry. It is defined as any packaging that can readily take the shape of the product inside and combines the best qualities from a variety of different package formats. Flexible packaging provides a multitude of benefits to the Consumer Packaged Goods industry, driving more brands to choose flexible over rigid for their packaging needs.
