CRREO Pioneer

“ProAmpac, the pioneer in child-resistant and reclosable easy open pouches, offers third-party certification to multiple performance standards, giving our North American customers the advantage of competitive pricing, shorter lead times and lower shipping costs compared to offshore suppliers,” said Maria Halford, vice president of global marketing.

“Our CRREO pouches utilize several patented features, including Slider-Guard™ child resistant slider, which is the first-ever child-resistant slider for flexible packaging. While it is difficult for children, it is easy for adults to open,” Halford added. The CRREO product line offers these advantages:

  • Certified from 8.5x6" through 13.5x9" in multiple formats
  • Manufactured in Rochester, N.Y.
  • Inventory on-hand for next-day shipping
  • Stocking programs available for ongoing demand
  • Clear, opaque, and foil barrier
  • Custom printing available with the support of our in-house graphics department
  • Press-to-close and slider options
  • Additional customization availability
  • In-house product development for new designs and optimization support
  • Field-based technical service to support filling trials and new equipment start-up

ProAmpac’s CRREO pouches meet all compliance requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency under the classification of ASTM D3475-08, Type XIA; they are tested in accordance with the Consumer Product Safety Commission Standards for Poison Prevention Packaging (C.F.R.
