Cincinnati, Ohio-based ProAmpac has introduced a fiber-based Modified Atmosphere Packaging RAP Sandwich Wedge to the North American market.
Designed for sandwiches and wraps, this package launches the concept of modified atmosphere packaging to a fiber-based format.
By combining the benefits of modified atmosphere packaging with sustainable fiber materials, ProAmpac addresses the demand for reduced food spoilage, environmentally-friendly packaging and an enhanced consumer experience in the food-to-go market.
ProAmpac’s RAP Sandwich Wedge has the capability to keep a fresh sandwich or wrap preserved for up to 28 days.
“Sustainability lies at the heart of ProAmpac’s business strategy, and we are thrilled to unveil the fiber-based Modified Atmosphere Packaging RAP Sandwich Wedge,” Irma Randles, ProAmpac’s market manager for fresh food to-go, said in a statement.
“Our packaging solution represents a more sustainable alternative to conventional plastic sandwich packs while reducing food spoilage costs.”
ProAmpac’s RAP Sandwich Wedge uses a carton board structure with a thin film lining to optimize product preservation and visibility. Engineered for hermeticity, this solution uses high barrier technology to extend product shelf-life, especially when incorporated with gas-flush filling technology. The RAP Sandwich Wedge enables longer transit and selling time, enhancing sales potential while minimizing food waste.
“The RAP Sandwich Wedge boasts wide recyclability. Consumers can peel away the film liner, and the carton board is easily recycled in paper streams,” said Kevin Vyse, head of technical for ProAmpac.
“Crafted from responsibly sourced fiber and utilizing less plastic packaging than conventional rigid containers, the RAP Sandwich Wedge significantly reduces packaging waste.”
