To meet the demand for plastic packaging options, carton manufacturer Graphic Packaging International is developing new solutions. For fresh products, it is launching the ProducePack boxboard range. Presented as “An ecological solution with an artificial solution”, This product is made for fruits and vegetables, “From field to store”. Available in several formats, it can be fitted with a handle. It is suitable for manual or mechanical packaging for small or large scale production. Its reinforced corners allow it to stack easily.
Another innovation from the American conglomerate: Cap-It for Plastic Bottle Packs. This system is intended to replace shrink wrap films. Intended for 4 to 8 bottle packs, it is also suitable for can and glass bottle configurations, according to Roxanne McSpadden, director of marketing and new product development for drinks in graphic packaging. It describes other advantages of this solution, complementary to the KeelClip device, awarded an Oscar for packaging in 2020: The Cap-It fastener uses a minimal amount of cardboard, reinforcing the differentiation of the products on the shelf. Products can be viewed from all angles, in their entirety. This unique design ensures integrity throughout the supply chain and facilitates transportation for consumers. “
In addition, the cardboard manufacturer announces investments in its production capabilities in Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Greece and Australia to meet customer demand for paperless trays. Intended for “skin” type vacuum packaging, these are made of cardboard with a laminated film. They were developed with the Italian producer G. Mondini.
Graphic Packaging International specializes in cardboard-based packaging solutions for the food, beverage, out-of-home and other consumer products industries. The group achieved business of $ 6.6 billion in 2020.
