Elif ribbonised the wicket bags

Elif offers an innovative wicket bag for the feminine care market. The new wicket bag is an exciting and chic alternative to the standard wicket bags on the market.

Elif, a globally well-known company especially for the personal care sector with its tailor-made packaging solutions and wide range of converting lines for hygiene bags, continues to offer innovative packaging solutions to the sector. Elif's standard flexible packaging solutions range also contains rollstocks, technical films and other pre-made packaging materials like stand-up pouches with various features, retail bags, mail order and tamper evident bags. In order to meet the upcoming trends and changing consumer needs, Elif develops packaging solutions that offer different combinations for a specific execution, shape or a special customer request with regards to quality or technology.

Last year, 64 new products were produced on Elif’s production lines as a result of the cooperation between the company, its customers, research institutes/universities and suppliers. One of the most recent new products produced by Elif is the ribbon bag, a recloseable wicket bag with ribbon, which was developed under the leadership of Elif’s sector leader customer and in cooperation with the machine supplier and manufacturer. This is an innovative wicket bag, with a ribbon integrated to the bag on a fully automated production line for a chic recloseability. The new wicket bag with ribbon is an exciting alternative to the standard wicket bags on the market.

The ribbon bag converting line is produced exclusively for Elif and is the first wicket bag making machine that is capable of inserting the ribbon through the edges of the bag and making a knot on the ribbon automatically. The availability of Elif’s ribbon bag technology on the specific converting machine, which is exclusive to Elif only, broadens the consumer perception of wicket bags beyond the standard applications. The new wicket bag with ribbon is expected to especially attract young users of feminine hygiene pads with its chic and elegant look on the shelves as well as functional recloseability for all users. The ribbon helps users to re-open and re-close the wicket bag in a simple way after tearing the perforation, and ensures safe and neat storage of the products during the usage.

Elif provides solutions for mainly the food & beverage, household and fabric care, personal hygiene and retail sectors, where the market dynamics change quite rapidly and, therefore, the speed of new product entry to the market, quality of materials and printing quality as well as service flexibility and excellence all have critical importance. Elif’s quality and sustainability approach as well as its flexibility and strong technology development capability allow it to be open to tailor-made and/or customised packaging requirements of its customers. To realise that approach, Elif leverages closer relationships with its customers, ensuring that Elif, as their packaging partner, fully understands the dynamics that are shaping its customers' markets in order to deliver the innovative packaging that they need and want. Elif will continue to offer not only standard solutions but new packaging concepts that have been developed together with its customers and partners.
