ProAmpac is launching a multi-wall, paper-based self-opening-sack bag – certified for curbside recycling and geared towards dry pet food applications – as part of its patent-pending PRO-EVO Recyclable platforms.
With high moisture barrier versions of the pack also available, the PRO-EVO Recyclable bag reportedly avoids the addition of PFAS while providing edge-wicking and grease-resistance and aspiring to maintain the freshness of dry pet food products.
“Petfood brands want recyclable paper-based packaging solutions,” says Ben Davis, product manager at ProAmpac. “The PRO-EVO Recyclable platform fulfills ProAmpac’s promise to deliver more recyclable packaging solutions without sacrificing end-use performance and filling line efficiency.”
“PRO-EVO Recyclable offers excellent shelf presence and a robust structure with high drop resistance,” adds Hesam Tabatabaei, senior vice president of global product development and innovation. “These patent-pending technologies are engineered to have various moisture barrier levels, excellent organoleptic properties for pet food applications, and run-at-rate on the standard filling equipment.”
Last year also saw various brands collaborate in a bid to create more sustainable pet food packaging. Coveris and Ultra Premium Direct produced recyclable, mono-material polyethylene bags for the PROTEIN BOOST pet food product range, while Dow, Windmöller & Hölscher, and B&B produced a wide-format MDO-PE bag for use in pet food packaging.
