Case Study

Need more convincing? Automated food bagging implemented many solutions for a national bakery that was operating their packaging by hand. They didn’t want to lose flexibility and quality in their production. Adding printing product and batch information directly onto the bag allowed them to offset the cost of resealable multi-packs, which keep product fresher longer and significantly reduce food waste.
