Sustainable packaging concepts for the food industry

Date: 02.08.2023Source: SÜDPACK

SÜDPACK will once again be taking part in PACK EXPO, the international packaging show running from September 11 to 13, in Las Vegas, where the film manufacturer will be presenting its entire portfolio of both conventional and sustainable high-performance films and packaging concepts for the food industry.  In addition, at the exhibition booth of PPi Technologies, the US representative of SN Maschinenbau, film made by SÜDPACK will be processed into stand-up pouches with zipper reclosure on an SN horizontal pouch packaging machine.

With sustainability gathering momentum in the United States, one of the companys main points of focus at the exhibition will be sustainable packaging concepts for the food industry. For that reason, SÜDPACK is enhancing the focus on its material-efficient and recyclable packaging concepts. SÜDPACK’s consistent commitment to a comprehensive sustainability roadmap and a functioning circular economy, offers a portfolio of packaging solutions and business models in the area that is unparalleled in its breadth.

With a large assortment of high-performance mono-materials, films made from renewable resources and particularly thin and therefore resource-conserving film structures, the manufacturer is bringing powerful innovation to the US market. From stand-up pouches to flow packs to thermoformed packaging – SÜDPACK’s modern material structures optimally protect the packaged products. They can be equipped with different features and barrier properties to ensure that products can be safely protected from external factors when packaged. For example, packages can be easily opened and closed by using the reliable Multipeel film concepts.

The SÜDPACK site in Oak Creek has its own printing and laminating facilities – and thanks to tight organisation and excellent service, they are able to respond to customer requests with very short lead times.

SÜDPACK will be coming together with SN Maschinenbau and their US representative PPi Technologies Group in the Central Hall to present an attractive solution for the efficient and sustainable packaging of products such as beef jerky, air-dried sausages, grated cheese, nuts, snacks and also non-food products in practical stand-up pouches with zipper reclosure. Because both the film and zipper reclosure are based entirely on PE, the packaging can be fed into the appropriate material cycle as a true single-material solution.

Thanks to a relatively large processing window, efficient packaging and rapid cycles are ensured without any issues on conventional standard machines. In Las Vegas, SN Maschinenbau’s high-performance FM 060 horizontal pouch packaging machine will be in use. The horizontal operating rotary machine provides maximum flexibility and excellent packaging quality on a small footprint. It can be used to manufacture flat pouches, bottom-gusseted pouches and stand-up pouches. For more visit stand #SL-5972 or suedpack.com
