The rise of flexible pouches

In line with a growing market demand for packaging solutions, Xeikon has launched a new range of flexible packaging.

CS Labels works with organisations of all sizes, from large global FMCG, pharmaceutical, chemical companies to SME’s, start-up and niche businesses

The launch was made possible by years of research and development from CS Labels. CS Labels has been a customer of Xeikon since 2007 and has since invested time, effort and money into its research and development programme.

The firm, which has been privately owned since 1976, manufactures high definition digital flexible pouches and sachets for the food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

By exploring the latest technology to create the new range of products, CS Labels has worked to add value to its existing offering to the marketplace.

The flexible pouches from CS Labels are British Retail Consortium (BRC) accredited to the ‘high risk’ level which means the pouches are guaranteed to protect the consumer in applications such as direct food contact.

Pouches, and particularly stand up pouches, are the fastest growing product category within flexible packaging

Xeikon has now adopted the digitally printed flexible pouch as an official use for its digital presses.

The packaging industry is one that has been growing for some time, with new innovative products being created regularly in line with consumer demand. Stand up pouches have been named as one of the upcoming trends of 2019 by packaging firm, Law Print & Packaging.

In a prediction of the packaging trends to hit the market this year, the firm states: “Pouches, and particularly stand up pouches, are the fastest growing product category within flexible packaging.

“Pouches, unlike their traditional rigid alternatives, can be filled quicker. This is advantageous to companies facing a growing need to reduce the time to market for even the most basic commodity items – a trend that is placing pressure on packer fillers to meet increasingly tight delivery schedules cost effectively.”
