Justin’s® and ProAmpac pioneer FDA-compliant flexible pouch with recycled content

Taking a "pioneering step" toward sustainable food packaging, ProAmpac, a flexible packaging leader, has recently announced that it is producing a high-barrier pouch made with 25 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials for JUSTIN'S® newest product innovation, Nut Butter Covered Nuts.

To produce the new pouch, ProAmpac collaborated with its customer JUSTIN'S®, maker of naturally delicious, high quality nut butters and organic nut butter cups and snacks.

Pioneering PCR Pouch

"This flexible package is one of the first commercial pouches for food packaging to combine such a high proportion of PCR material, reducing the carbon footprint of the package without sacrificing the high-barrier snack food requirements. We believe this is a pioneering step in food packaging to further enhance the sustainable advantages of a flexible format," said Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac.

Utilizing a food-contact FDA-compliant structure, this snack pouch reduces its reliance on virgin resin by using 40 percent recycled plastic content in the sealant film that equates to 25 percent of the total structure. As the company states, this pouch has high oxygen- and moisture-barrier properties, preserving product freshness, features crisp branded graphics and reduces the package's total carbon footprint by not relying on 100% virgin polymers.

"We overcame the hazy and inconsistent appearance that typically occurs when utilizing a high content of PCR materials by combining flexographic inks and coating technologies, and by optimizing the lamination processes, all of which produces a package with standout shelf appeal," explained Hesam Tabatabaei, ProAmpac's director of research, innovation and technology.
