National Flexible gets ‘Friendly’

The health-conscious can now indulge in their desire for high quality confectionery – but without the sugar – following the launch of a range of bagged sweets by The Friendly Sweet Company.

Leading the market for traditional sweets without the ‘bad bits’, The Friendly Sweet Company worked with Bradford-based film specialists, National Flexible, to create the packaging for its range of sugar free, gluten free and trans-fat free confectionery.

The two companies worked together to develop a generic range of printed laminate films suitable for packing the sweets on automated VFFS machinery. Containing up to 60g of product, the film bags are low-cost, high quality, and high clarity with printing and origination costs kept to a minimum thanks to some clever repro work by National Flexible’s print team.

“Our ‘Zero-Zero-One’ approach is different in the packaging industry as it allows us to pipeline bulk quantities of base materials for printing, slitting and lamination,” said National Flexible’s Marketing Manager – Andy Smith. “This allows us to offer our customers greater flexibility in terms of cost, lead times and order quantities,” he continued.

National Flexible are the UK’s largest distributor of polypropylene, laminates and special films. Their custom factory is purpose built to be compliant with the latest BRC standards for food-grade packaging, and they have become well known as the preferred supplier of packaging films for the food, bakery, snack, confectionery and contract packing industries.
