National Flexible, the Yorkshire-based film specialist, has provided a cost-effective packaging solution for Apollo Snacks – one of London’s leading suppliers of pre-packed nuts, snacks, sweets and dried fruits for a hungry market. With an expansive range of product lines, Apollo was looking for a packaging solution which would avoid the expense involved in originating a registered print for each of its different products. National Flexible’s experience of working with its customers in the area of cost reduction meant that the company was well placed to offer the ideal solution – a generic print across the range, potentially saving thousands in repro, origination and printing costs.

The colourful artwork for the bags was provided by London – based designers Dalziel and Pow.

The end result was an eye-catching printed laminate film used by Apollo Snacks to bag product in its factory on automated VFFS packaging machinery – and the new look has helped it make more sales. For further information contact National Flexible on Tel +44 (0)1274 685566.
