Flexible Food Packaging and Printing Applications

As food and beverage businesses embrace advanced flexible food packaging technologies to better preserve and showcase their products, it’s important that the costs don’t outweigh the benefits. Klaus Langen, owner of Langen Kaffee, a producer of high-quality coffees, understands this well.

Langen buys high-quality green coffees from around the world, which he manually roasts in small batches and quickly packages for maximum quality. Previously he used a number of neutral bags, but the process of sticking labels on each individual bag was too time-consuming.

Langen switched to DuPont™ Cyrel® round flexographic printing sleeves for his print products, which allow him to efficiently print and apply more attractive designs utilizing photos, which he could not do previously. Now he produces flexible food packaging and food label printing that’s truly worthy of his product — for a lower production cost. Additionally, his ability to realize more designs with shorter print runs lowers his packaging investment costs.

DuPont™ Cyrel® print form technology has enabled Klaus to provide the highest quality coffee, in the highest quality packaging, to his customers.
