Gruppo Fabbri’s stretch film can be printed in four colors with digital plates up to 10 colors.


The stretch film allows the product to be held, preventing it from moving inside the tray: the finished products are therefore more stable and less subject to knocks and/or damage.

Applicable in both manual and automatic modes, packaging with these films is always simple, flexible and does not require specialized operators.

By protecting and preserving food, stretch packaging is also a valid ally in the fight against food waste and contamination of any kind.

Automatic stretch wrapping machines generally do not require large investments and offer a fast wrapping process, allowing high productivity and, consequently, a rapid achievement of ROI.

Stretch film can also be printed, thus offering additional and cheaper communication possibilities compared to other solutions, such as cardboard bands, labels, etc.

Gruppo Fabbri offers films for stretch packaging, with or without tray and in both manual and automatic mode, based on PVC (polyvinyl chloride), PE (polyethylene), compostable and of renewable origin.
