At this year’s PACK EXPO International, Printpack (N-5332) will debut an easy tear polyethylene pouch featuring a customizable moisture barrier, oxygen barrier and closures options. The technology, designed to be compliant with the How2Recycle store drop-off recycling stream, is the latest addition to the company’s collection of solutions that support the reduction of food waste, and therefore, sustainability, throughout food product lifecycles.
“CPGs want to see their brands adored, not abandoned,” says Mark Brogan, director of technology and innovation at Printpack. “By offering a full range of packaging solutions that slow the degradation of food content, we can help brands gain greater consumer preference and stronger loyalties. Ensuring freshness from the first serving to the last not only builds brand appeal, it also supports industry-wide efforts to fight food waste and achieve greater sustainability.”
Printpack’s full line of solutions includes a wide range of standup, shaped, spouted and fitmented pouches, wicketed bags, flat-bottom bags, rigid plastic packaging and lidding. Resealable closures, advanced coating technologies, laser scoring and clear barrier solutions that protect against oxygen, moisture and UV light enable brands to design a package that minimizes food waste. Customers seeking these solutions are ushered through a special consultative process that considers their market needs, necessary barrier properties to prevent food adulteration, and the latest reclosable features to enhance the consumer experience.
PACK EXPO International 2016 takes place from November 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
