Silver - Extending the Use of Flexible Packaging

Manufacturer: Printpack

This package is a conversion from a corrugated box to a flexible flat bottom bag. Lonza chose flexible packaging for two reasons – first, it was found that their cardboard boxes would deteriorate over time, requiring the product to be repackaged, and second, they wanted to stand out on the shelf with distinctive and unique packaging. This pool chemical package is an example of a successful, non-food conversion to flexible in a market that is dominated by cartons and plastic containers.

Flexfresh™ is the first biodegradable (by composting) film that maintains the hydration of flowers using a closed loop system. Flowers are put to slow respiration mode for preventing excess oxidation and spoilage. Flexfresh™ keeps the flowers breathing in hydrated oxygen and releases excess humidity keeping them touch dry. The flowers thus can go without water for five days as the humidity is fed back in to the flower when it continues to breathe. Once the package is received by the customer and opened, the bouquet remains fresh in a vase for at least a guaranteed seven days. This development is a major shot in the arm of e-commerce companies and retailers, bringing enormous savings. We are visualizing an in store display without water and web shops can send flowers by mail without having to worry about poor quality upon arrival. This packaging solution completely alleviates the use of millions of gallons of water from the flower supply chain currently used, thereby making it one of the most sustainable packaging solutions.
