Packaging Snapshot: At this year’s PACK EXPO International, Printpack will debut an easy tear polyethylene pouch featuring customizable 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 (N-5332). 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.
Printpack’s full line of solutions includes a wide range of stand-up, shaped, spouted and fitmented 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 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.
