The choice of cost-effective environmentally friendly packaging films has never been greater thanks to the ongoing investment into new material technology by Bradford-based packaging specialists National Flexible. The film distributors, well known for cornering the standard BOPP film market, have continued to expand on their growing range of environmentally friendly packaging films with a number of ‘green’ alternatives which meet the criteria demanded by supermarkets and consumers in terms of being biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, sustainable or carbon neutral.
“Whatever approach you want to take to address the environmental impact of your packaging films, we’ve got a range of materials and solutions suitable for everyone,” said National Flexible’s Marketing Manager, Andy Smith.
“We welcome enquiries from any packer or manufacturer wanting to improve the environmental credentials of their packaging. The demand from our customers and the different applications they use these films for is growing all the time,” he continued.
National Flexible is continually introducing new packaging films which meet the needs of their customers. The company has set up a separate division – Natural Flexible – which is dedicated solely to sourcing packaging films which are either environmentally-friendly, biodegradable or sustainable; Biodegradable BOPP is one of the latest materials to be introduced.
