Roll Stock

The food packaging industry has existed for centuries. Although high-speed machinery and laminated packaging has not existed for all that time, the popularity of flexible packaging has grown in the last few decades. It is more popular than ever before now that so many consumers are interested in minimizing packaging waste that they have to throw away.

Roll stock packaging provides a sturdy alternative to boxes and blister packs that end up negatively affecting the environment more than necessary. When it comes to the creation of pouches or bags for different loose foods, this engineered film on a cardboard roll fits the bill perfectly. Together, the benefits all point to increasing popularity and profitability in the future.


Besides food, various types of roll stock packaging have been used for medical supplies, some toys and collectible cards, printer ink cartridges, and other products that do not need stiff packaging for protection. When it comes to Flex-Pack products, special use flexible packaging is available in roll stock inventory.


Primary Reasons to Choose Roll Stock Packaging


Ease of use is one of the most important criteria for any type of manufacturing or packaging plant use. You need film on a sturdy core that fits your existing machinery perfectly. No one wants to retrofit an entire plant line to suit an unusual packaging material with odd dimensions or specific heat or pressure needs. Since these rolls are so simple to use, it also takes less time and labor to get everything up and running. This is especially important as packaging plants are increasingly automated and any delay in the process can cause considerable problems.


Besides usability, efficiency and cost matter, too. Roll stock film represents a much smaller investment than other packaging types without compromising function or style. The multiple colors and opportunity to print whatever is needed for the product inside makes it highly economic for mass packaging needs. When the plant produces hundreds or thousands of products every single day, the last thing to worry about is the high cost of the packaging material. With this laminated film, the affordable per-unit cost leads to increased chance of profit down the road.


In the end, roll stock packaging delivers quality and a professional look and feel without wasted material, time, or money. This type of material has been used to wrap everything from frozen fish sticks to candy bars to gourmet coffee grounds throughout the history of the food packaging industries. Today’s roll stock products exceed expectations across the board.
