ProAmpac has launched its ProActive PCR Retort pouches containing post-consumer recycled material.
This new offering is one of the options ProAmpac’s ProActive Sustainability platform provides retailers and brands looking for solutions to meet their circular economy goals.
“At ProAmpac, we understand the importance of sustainability to our customers,” said Charles Golub, ProAmpac food and beverage market manager.
“ProActive PCR Retort pouches use less virgin resin than conventional pouches. By reducing the environmental impact of our packaging, we are empowering our customers to make sustainable choices aligned with their goals. Together, we’re forging a path towards a more sustainable approach to packaging.”
ProActive PCR Retort pouches are designed for products requiring ultra-high barrier and high-heat resistance, such as shelf-stable ready-to-eat proteins. The technology helps the pouches uphold functionality, durability and food safety throughout the retort and distribution processes.
“ProActive PCR Retort pouches excel in maintaining filling line efficiencies, mechanical performance and food shelf-life without compromise,” said Bob Flaherty, ProAmpac’s senior director of product development for North America. “Offering superior barrier protection throughout the retort process preserves freshness, and these pouches provide excellent tear performance for an enhanced consumer experience. Their resistance to flex cracking ensures optimal product protection.”
