Operational Efficiency IconMake the Move from Rigid to Flexible for Increased Efficiency

Your operational performance is constantly scrutinized, and in the kitchen, we know space, time and cost-savings are critical. 

Those rigid containers you’re using may actually result in more prep time, greater risk of injury and a less efficient use of space. Unlike rigid containers, Cryovac® Vertical Pouch Packaging saves you time and increases worker efficiency. Plus, flexible packaging takes up 40 percent less space—making it easier to handle, store and stack.

What does this mean?

  • More efficient storage: Ideal for operators with limited refrigerator space.
  • Safer, quicker handling: Easy-open pouches require no scissors or knives and completely eliminates the risk of injuries.

Reduce Waste and Cut Costs 

Flexible packaging also plays a vital role in reducing food waste and cutting disposal costs.

Flexible packaging solutions can help you:

  • Decrease food spoilage: Rigid containers often experience flex cracks causing spoilage, but flexible packaging eliminates this problem 
  • Maximizes product flavor and color retention: The oxygen barrier film maintains the freshness and overall quality of food which also increases shelf stability of products 
  • Reduce waste disposal costs: An empty pouch weighs 10 percent of a metal can and takes up less bin space

Moreover, because flexible packaging can be sized to recipe, it results in 8% more product out of the package. That’s what we like to call product yield. And more yield means more sales, less waste and ultimately less money spent on disposal costs.
