PROAMPAC PRESENTS SUSTAINABLE PET FOOD PACKAGING SOLUTIONS
CINCINNATI (April 29, 2019) ProAmpac, the flexible packaging leader, arrives in Kansas City at Petfood Forum April 29, introducing its ProActive Sustainability® portfolio of greener packaging options to the largest collection of suppliers to the pet food industry.
“Pet owners’ preference for premium products continues to fuel pet food market growth” said Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac. “We are excited to now offer our customers two new recyclable packaging options that convey a premium image in a sustainable format.”
ProAmpac is featuring two new, innovative recyclable packaging options at Petfood Forum: Signature Surfaces ProActive Recyclable Paper Touch coatings and its ProActive Recyclable QuadFlex® Pouch.
New Recyclable Paper Touch
The company announced its new Signature Surfaces Paper Touch is available in recyclable rollstock and pre-made pouches. The groundbreaking Signature Surfaces coating can be combined with glossy graphics or a clear window that creates an eye-popping display sure to attract consumer attention. This material has excellent heat resistance, chemical resistance, and scuff resistance, along with a low seal-initiation temperature for high-speed form/fill/seal (FFS) applications.
“With the feel of kraft paper, ProAmpac’s new Paper Touch recyclable films fulfill brands’ desires for a sustainable flexible package that supports organic and premium products, like pet food, without sacrificing barrier or performance. This revolutionary material offers either standard or high oxygen and moisture barriers and is pre-approved by How2Recycle for store-drop-off,” states Hesam Tabatabaei, director of research, innovation and technology.
“ProAmpac’s QuadFlex Pouch is a pioneering, premium solution that is of strong interest to our pet food customers,” said Louann Mueller, vice president of research and development for ProAmpac. “The ProActive Recyclable QuadFlex is pre-approved by How2Recycle for store drop-off. This pouch delivers high-quality graphics for a strong shelf presence and is available in small to large sizes with optional oxygen barrier properties.”
New ProActive Portfolio of Sustainable Packaging
Just last month, the company introduced four product groups within the ProActive portfolio, solutions that help brand owners and copackers alike meet packaging sustainability objectives. They include:
- ProActive Recyclable – Unique, high-performance products which can be processed after use through typical plastic or paper recycling streams. ProAmpac offers recyclable products such as stand-up pouches, quad seal pouches and rollstock for FFS applications.
- ProActive PCR – Products which contain Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic from non-virgin, recycled plastic resin sources. ProAmpac can incorporate up to fifty percent food-contact compliant PCR into materials to meet sustainability and carbon footprint reduction goals.
- ProActive Renewable – Products which are made from a bio-based feedstock, such as corn or sugarcane. ProAmpac has renewable options which can be incorporated into multi-material laminations for pet packaging.
- ProActive Compostable – Products which biodegrade in industrial composting facilities per conditions set by ASTM D6400. ProAmpac can work with customers to incorporate compostability into their paper and film packaging offerings.
