Over the last few years, the bakery sector has had to adapt to changing consumer needs and trends diversifying its product offering accordingly.

Consumers’ purchasing decisions are now increasingly led by healthy choices, special dietary requirements, convenience and sustainability with a premium being paid for organic ingredients, vegetarianism and ‘free-from’ claims.

Individual and snack size portions are becoming more popular in the bakery sector providing increased consumer convenience. Resealability is playing an important role to maintain product freshness and assist with portion control, which can be achieved in numerous ways such as zips or reseal labels.

Constantia FFP Solutions

The bakery sector encompasses a wide range of products from the humble sliced loaf of bread to flavoured flat breads, cakes and biscuits. Each product has its own packaging requirements to meet shelf life expectations, increase convenience, meet sustainable objectives or reflect the expectations and values of the consumer. Flexible packaging can provide a brand with a much needed edge in a competitive market.

With the increased trend towards healthier lifestyles and natural ingredients, tactile lacquers that can provide a paper or more rustic appearance are a popular choice. Constantia FFP can achieve these through lamination and printing techniques. These techniques along with our HD platinum print can also be used to create a luxurious look and feel for more premium brands, elevating brand image and driving sales.

With state-of-the-art in-house manufacturing capabilities and a technical team with decades of experience and expertise, we are extremely well positioned to support brands in developing and producing flexible packaging for their bakery products.

Sustainability

Sustainability in packaging is increasingly becoming a key requirement for brands and Constantia FFP have responded by developing recyclable solutions that lend themselves perfectly to the bakery sector;

Mono Material Recyclable Laminates

Our mono-material recyclable laminates are demanding shelf space as they are extremely versatile and can be recycled with carrier bags at supermarkets. Available in reel form, as stand-up pouches or pre-made bags, they offer high-barrier solutions where gas flushing is required. These products are strong, flexible and lightweight, providing an exciting alternative for companies looking for a recyclable solution whilst still maintaining functionality and creating vibrant shelf appeal.

Recyclable Lidding Film

Constantia FFP have developed a recyclable lidding film that represents a major development in sustainable packaging. The resealable mono material lidding film, available in either PET or PP, has been designed to be used with a tray of the same material to produce the first mono material resealable pack in the UK to be classified as ‘Recycle’ by OPRL and collected in its entirety through the existing waste collection system.

Paper Packaging Solutions

We have also developed paper products that provide an ideal solution for recyclable and tactile packaging and can be recycled in the paper waste stream.
