NAPLES, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Flexible Packaging Association presented ProAmpac two gold and two
silver annual achievement awards for packages showcasing innovation and
advances in packaging. The awards were announced last night at the FPA
Welcome Dinner & Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Ceremony at the
Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort here.

ProAmpac received the following:

A Gold Achievement Award in Printing and Shelf Impact for the
Sunrise Growers Organic Cherry Berry Fruit Blend pouch that combines a
3-D appearance with the natural look and feel associated with organic
foods. ProAmpac manufactures, prints and varnishes the polyethylene
substrate. The same package for Sunrise Growers was recognized last year
in the 31st packagePRINTING Excellence Awards,
receiving first place in that competition’s Flexo Process category and
Best-of-Show out of 200 total entries.

A Gold Achievement Award in Technical Innovation and a Silver
Achievement Award in Packaging Excellence
were won for the Whitney
Farms Organic Planting Soil package, developed by ProAmpac’s Trinity

  • The Gold Technical Innovation award recognizes the 100 percent energy
    curable, surface-printed, tubular, large-format package made with a
    polyethylene substrate that incorporates a high
    coefficient-of-friction. The energy-curable matte overcoat keeps the
    bags from shifting when stacked on display, while also presenting a
    consumer-pleasing organic look and feel. To make the packaging,
    Trinity combines an optimized resin-system with blown film and a UV
    print system, while c-folding the bag—all inline.
  • The Silver Packaging Excellence award combines technical excellence,
    as noted above, with sustainability—employing surface printing
    on a single (versus double) film using 100 percent energy-curable
    (versus solvent) inks on the recyclable substrate—and added shelf
    . Shelf impact results from Trinity’s printing, ink system
    and UV matte coating—all of which come together ensuring that colors
    pop and grab the consumer’s eye as they walk through the garden center.

A Silver Medal for Expanding the Use of Flexible Packaging
for a stand-up pouch (SUP) developed for Farmhouse Culture Kraut. This
SUP is itself an appealing product billboard on store shelves versus
lay-flat pillow pouches. It enables both lower distribution costs and
easier carrying versus glass containers. A unique one-way degassing
valve, developed jointly by ProAmpac and the valve supplier, releases
gas-built up by the live probiotic microbes while maintaining a
hermetically sealed pouch. The pouch has a press-to-close reclose

“At ProAmpac, we are driving innovation through collaboration with our
customers. This is proving to be enormously successful, but the process
is seldom visible beyond the customer and ourselves,” said Adam Grose,
chief commercial officer of ProAmpac.

“The FPA’s evaluation and award process enables those of us in the
flexible packaging industry to showcase the remarkable technologies and
innovations our teams create that go into the packaging made by our
customers and bought by consumers,” he said.

“Thanks go to FPA judges, our customers and the ProAmpac teams involved.”
