Sustainability efforts are an important concern for CL&D because we want to do our part as much as possible. We are proud to say that we do this through responsible business practices including environmental preservation, energy conservation, recycling and reuse. Here are some examples of how we minimize our footprint: Today consumers are focusing on convenience and social responsibility. Social change and individual-sized portions are becoming important in future packaging design. Sustainable-driven packaging is more than reducing use of non-renewable resources – it’s also about efficient cost savings. Converting from rigid to flexible packaging creates:

Better Handling Capabilities

Flexible Packaging is an innovative product that has numerous diverse product categories including reclosure and dispensing options.


Packaging that weighs less results in less waste and reduced transportation costs.

Design Attractiveness

Flexible Packaging enables single-serve packaging and visibility of contents.

Reduced Energy Consumption

Flexible packaging consumes less energy in manufacturing, reduces carbon footprint and associated costs, and generates less greenhouse gas emissions.

Increased Shelf Life & Decreased Shelf Space

The barrier properties of flexible packaging keeps food fresher, longer and contributes to an increased shelf life. A better product-to-package ratio!

Package Minimization

A small amount of packaging material can contain a large amount of product (a better product-to-package ratio), enables single-serve packaging and contributes less to landfill waste.


BRAND OWNERS now have the ability to bring packaging to market with the convenience and features of typical multi-layered pouches, barrier film and low-barrier film with the added benefit of recyclability.
