Oct 13, 2022

CINCINNATI (Oct. 13, 2022)  ProAmpac, a leader in flexible packaging and material science, opens PACK EXPO 2022 at Booth S-3582, emphasizing its ProActive Recyclable® packaging innovations, along with a complete line of fresh food to-go packaging for both hot and cold applications. PACK EXPO takes place at Chicago’s McCormick Place from Oct. 23-26.

“We first introduced ProActive Sustainability® at 2018’s PACK EXPO in Chicago, and we are thrilled to be back,” states Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac. “Since the original launch of ProActive Sustainability, ProAmpac has expanded our line of sustainable packaging products, including our ProActive Recyclable® solutions. We invite attendees to visit ProAmpac’s booth and meet our technical, commercial leadership team members to learn how we can support you to meet or exceed your sustainability goals,” continues Grose.

ProActive Recyclable® Product Group

ProAmpac continues to build on its patented, high-performance, mono-material ProActive Recyclable® R-2000 Series. These films are available in rollstock or premade pouches and offer very high clarity, high drop resistance, excellent stiffness, and dimpling resistance for a premium shelf appearance. Designed to be a drop-in replacement for conventional multi-material laminates, R-2000’s superior heat resistance allows for optimal speeds, a wide operating window, and high efficiencies on filling lines. ProActive Recyclable products include flexible packaging designed for polyethylene (store drop-off) recycle streams.

Attendees can see the full line of R-2000 samples, including:

In addition to ProActive Recyclable, ProAmpac’s ProActive Sustainability offers flexible packaging in three other product groups:

Fresh Food and Fresh Food-to-Go

From deli sandwiches to hot wraps, ProAmpac’s fresh food to-go suite of products is designed for sustainability and built for performance. With a deep understanding of retailers’ commitments to sustainable packaging, ProAmpac strives to remove avoidable packaging and use the least amount of materials possible.

The modern format keeps food fresh and offers an elevated appearance in either a hot cabinet or chiller. Also, by weight, the largest component of ProAmpac’s fresh food to-go packaging is paperboard and paper sourced from sustainable certified forests, which is widely recyclable in fibre streams. This packaging range includes: Sandwich PacksHandRapsSoftPacks and Trays. Also on display at the show will be RecycAll Freshpack, ProAmpac’s award-winning all-fibre sandwich skillet.

“ProAmpac’s fresh food to-go packaging has been used in the UK and Europe fresh food market for decades. We are pleased to bring these products to North America. I will be presenting on how fresh food to-go packaging can support the circular economy on the Innovation Stage, Wednesday, October 26th at noon,” states Nathan Klettlinger director of global marketing for ProAmpac.
