Printpack to Launch New Package for the Prevention of Food Spoilage at PACK EXPO

Company zeros in on helping brand owners eliminate food waste & enhance sustainability


At this year’s PACK EXPO International, Printpack will debut an easy tear polyethylene pouch featuring customisable moisture barrier, oxygen barrier and closures options. The technology, designed to be compliant with the How2Recycle store drop-off recycling stream, will be on display at the Printpack’s booth. It 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 Mr. 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 stand-up, shaped, spouted and fitment pouches, wicketed bags, flat-bottom bags, rigid plastic packaging and lidding. Re-sealable 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 minimises 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 re-closable features to enhance the consumer experience.
