Traditional rigid packaging – bottles – have been the standard for liquid consumer products for generations. Drawbacks of converting to flexible materials – pouches – include poor, messy dispensing, cheap appearance, and expensive converting. The AeroFlexx package, developed by Procter & Gamble and available for license from Innventure, removes the drawbacks and creates a liquid dispensing pack with benefits surpassing even traditional bottles. Additionally, the pack is suitable for eCommerce without additional preparation. This presentation will cover the generalities of the package development and the method by which it works. It will also cover the status and time lines for commercialization in the industry across the different categories in liquids packaging.
