A little behind the scenes confession: This article probably took the longest to put together of all the articles I did this year. But it was definitely worth the wait. And the effort paid off with massive readership every month since the article posted at the end of August.

Our virtual roundtable tapped five industry experts from various areas in the flexible packaging supply chain:

1. Resin supplier;

2. Printing press maker;

3. Extrusion/coating equipment company;

4. Film converter; and

5. Form-fill-seal machinery manufacturer.

Their insights—into trend drivers, challenges, future growth areas and sustainability shifts—show how this dynamic market continues to advance, despite some challenges.
