The World Packaging Organization (WPO) honored ProAmpac with a 2017 WorldStar award for its standup pouch featuring a de-gassing valve that helps better manage probiotic microorganisms.

The standup pouch was created for Farmhouse Culture Inc. It also features enhanced functionality via a press-to-close zipper, clean, easy opening from laser scoring, crisp graphics that reinforce product freshness and a well-placed back window for product viewing.

“Farmhouse Culture is proud to be an innovator within fermented foods and it is very exciting to now be recognized for our packaging innovation as well,” says Marc McCullagh, Farmhouse Culture director of marketing. “Our standup pouch and its Ferment-o-vent helps ensure that our krauts and the live active probiotics from our fermentation process remain happy and tasting amazing. ProAmpac has been a great partner with Farmhouse Culture to ensure consistent quality in not only structure, but also outstanding print production to match our brand style and packaging design.”
