ProAmpac wins two 2020 Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards for sustainability, shelf impact
On March 4 during the 70th Anniversary Flexible Packaging Assn. (FPA) Annual Meeting in Bonita Springs, FL, ProAmpac received silver awards in:
- Sustainability for JUSTIN’S® Nut Butter Covered Nuts – a high-performance standup pouch that incorporates FDA-compliant post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials and;
- Shelf Impact for Ag Unlimited Pride Lands Premium Bloom Soil – a stunning large-format bag for ready-to-use soil.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the FPA,” says Adam Grose, chief commercial officer of ProAmpac. “These awards reflect ProAmpac’s continued focus on Collaborative Innovation. By partnering with our customers, we bring to market flexible packaging with exceptional shelf appeal, durability, and sustainability,” continued Grose.
JUSTIN’S® Nut Butter Covered Nuts pouch uses 4P%-PCR in the sealant film that equates to 25% of the total structure. This pouch has high oxygen- and moisture-barrier properties to preserve product freshness, features crisp branded graphics and reduces the package’s total carbon footprint by not relying on 100% virgin polymers.
Pride Lands Premium Bloom Soil bags features vibrant graphics using bold, sustainable, UV-cured, high-gloss coated and high-density UV inks. An overcoat and UV-cured ink system leave the final product with a laminated look.
