In the packaging industry, flexible packaging has been enjoying the strongest expansion because of the heightened demand for value-for-money options and more affordable pack types as households are increasingly conscious of stretching their purchasing power. A key reason for the popularity of flexible packaging is the increased consumer preference for convenience, with single-serve pack sizes driving the sales of many products, particularly through the traditional retail channels. JGSPC remains focused on the continuous development of our products to support the increasing popularity of flexible and rigid plastic packaging in the midst of an improving economy.
