When it comes to frozen food packaging, just adequate isn't good enough. In addition to the necessity of durable and attractive packaging required for all foods and time-sensitive products, frozen foods have their own special needs. These requirements include the need for advanced films and barriers to preserve and protect products from freezing, dehydration, and oxidation. Maintaining quality is essential. The premier types of frozen food packaging do this and much more. The ideal flexible packaging extends shelf life and ensures the food is fresh when it is heated for a hot meal.
The best packaging also adds convenience for customers by offering sizes in single and multiple servings, by making options with tear notches and resealable zippers and by providing selections that fit nicely into freezers. It's also important that the packaging is appealing and draws the eye of new and established customers, either in the grocery aisle or online. Advances in digital printing create vivid packaging that allows for a superior level of customization.
The Advantage of Customization
You want your product to stand out from the crowd and promote your brand's image. With custom mylar bags you get all the benefits of durability combined with originality. This offers your product a competitive advantage right from the start. When using the latest digital printing technology, your flexible packaging taps into the following advantages:
- Short and flexible print runs
- High definition photo-quality graphics
- Fast time to market
- Waste reduction
- Inventory flexibility
- Impressive value
All of this means it is easier for you to get the exact look on the packaging you desire. You won't have a large backlog of inventory that you have to sell out before switching to a new design. This enables you to print specialty packaging for seasonal promotions or to run a rewards campaign for a specific period of time. This cost-effective approach allows you to make changes when inspiration strikes, and it allows you to run multiple SKUs in one run. Plus, you needn't settle when it comes to the look of your packaged product.
The Versatility of Flexible Packaging
No matter your product, flexible packaging is likely to have the right solution. Lay-flat pouches work well for snacks and coffee and tea offerings. Digital printed stand up pouches are ideal for frozen foods, processed meats, and pet food. With pouches, you have the choice of features such as hang holes, closure options, different sizes, and puncture and tear-resistant capabilities. Child-resistant packaging is perfect for products that contain potentially harmful substances such as cosmetics, nutritional supplements, health and beauty, and lawn and garden.
Flexible packaging and digital printing also seek to have less of an impact on the planet, and this is accomplished without sacrificing quality or convenience. Transportation expenses and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced through lighter, smaller packaging. With shorter print runs, there is less likely to be wasted product which results in less energy. Sustainable packaging and printing also make use of recyclable materials, sustainable printing and inks, and an eco-friendly lamination process. The best packaging choice saves your company money, protects your product and the environment, and appeals to the consumer.
