Generation green packaging

Sustainable Packaging

At foxpak, we are committed to providing our customers with sustainable packaging solutions that can improve their brand image without compromising the integrity of their products.

Waste Less

This  packaging option is unique in the way that it’s environmentally friendly characteristics come from producing less waste in the first place. By choosing flexible & sustainable packaging over more traditional packaging formats such as glass, rigid plastic, metal and cardboard, you are already taking steps towards reducing landfill waste, greenhouse gasses and excess energy consumption.

We know that consumer convenience and product freshness are key priorities for both manufacturers & customers, that is why our peel and reseal biodegradable packaging solutions are the perfect packaging solution for both user friendliness and sustainability.

Reduced Landfill Waste

Flexible packaging has the ability to extend the shelf life of food products. By integrating specifically chosen barriers to the material mix, you can extend your product shelf life dramatically. Alongside its resealable features and portion control properties, flexible packaging is a great way to reduce food waste and improve sustainability.

Reduced Energy Consumption

Reduction in energy means more sustainable packaging and a sustainable future. The flexible packaging manufacturing and transportation process uses less energy than that of traditional packaging formats. In time, optimized energy consumption will lead to lower greenhouse gas emissions as well as lower operating costs and improved sustainable packaging solutions.

Reduced Greenhouse Gasses

Flexible packaging is extremely lightweight and becoming an important feature of sustainable packaging. In fact, one stand-up pouch is 35 times lighter than a glass jar. Lighter packaging means less fuel is used during the transportation process. Not only is this extremely beneficial to the environment, it is also very economical.
