ProAmpac launches new recyclable QuadFlex pouch

PKBR Staff Writer Published 13 June 2018

Flexible packaging solutions provider ProAmpac has expanded its fully recyclable No. 2 Pouch platform with the introduction of new No.2 QuadFlex pouch.

The new No.2 QuadFlex pouch serves as a better sustainable consumer packaging option for companies desiring recyclability without sacrificing quality graphics.

ProAmpac’s new pouch is a quad-seal and flat-bottom structure, which provides five panels of branding billboard space in a design with four corner seals, offering enhanced shelf appeal.

In 2011, ProAmpac launched the first No. 2 stand-up pouch, which secured How2Recycle approval.

ProAmpac senior product market manager Julie Conklin said:  “We listened to our customers. Brand owners across multiple markets challenged ProAmpac, making it clear that a recyclable quad-seal style pouch was needed across all our markets.

“From pet food to lawn and garden, cereal and salty snacks, we believe this new pouch will be a game changer in sustainable packaging options for our customers.”

ProAmpac is providing the new pouch in small and large sizes for multiple market applications. Based on the customer requirements, the pouch is also provided with optional oxygen barrier properties.

According to the company, the newly designed pouch will be launched by a major organic lawn and garden brand in the coming months.

ProAmpac chief commercial officer Adam Grose said: “Today’s announcement is a step toward our vision for a large-scale sustainability platform for flexible packaging.”

With 33 facilities and 4,000 employees, ProAmpac provides sustainable flexible packaging solutions and services to its customers across the globe.

ProAmpac offers packaging solutions for various products, including beverage, dairy, fresh, frozen, snacks, soups, sauces and condiments, as well as sugar and sweeteners.

The firm also provides packaging solutions for health and beauty, homecare, lawn and garden, nutritional and OTC products.

ProAmpac is a member of PPC Partners, which acquires and operates North America-based middle-market firms with presence in the manufactured products, services and healthcare sectors.
