Short Run Flexible Packaging: Is It Right for Your Product?

Short-run-flexible-packagingShort run flexible packaging is non-rigid packaging that can be contorted without impacting the integrity of the package and is used for short production runs of the product in the package. Products that are commonly placed in this type of packaging include: foodstuffs such as beef jerky and string cheese, single use chemical tablets such as dishwasher tablets and toilet cleaner tablets, and single serve drink products such as ground coffee and lemonade powder.

Benefits of Short Run Flexible Packaging
The overall value of short run flexible packaging depends on the unique needs of the seller, but the packaging also offers four benefits that broadly apply to our target audience: products brought to market faster, ideal for low shelf life products, great performance under tough conditions, and less wasted packaging and rework. Below, we take a brief look at each benefit.

Products Brought to Market Faster
Short production runs are ideal for at least three types of products: products that have a short shelf life, products that are only available for a short period of time, and products that must be brought to market as quickly as possible to help the seller maintain a sharp competitive edge.

Ideal for Low Shelf Life Foodstuffs
Short production runs are ideal for low shelf life foodstuffs, and so is flexible packaging. When it is used to create an airtight seal around the product in a sterile environment, it helps preserve the product’s freshness by preventing evaporation and the spread of bacteria that degrade food.

Performs Well Under Tough Conditions
Another benefit of flexible packaging is that it performs well under difficult conditions. For example, if freight units overturn in the freight compartment and collapses during the shipping process, it is highly unlikely that flexible packaging will be damaged by the falling freight.

Less Wasted Packaging and Rework
The flexibility of flexible packaging makes it highly resistant to difficult conditions that could damage rigid packaging. This benefit leads to two additional corollary benefits: Less waste packaging is produced, which reduces the need for replacement products and packaging.
