Fresh-Lock Closures Showcase Sustainable Flexible Packaging Innovations at PACK EXPO International
Fresh-Lock® closures, a leading brand in reclosable packaging technology, will showcase meaningful advances in sustainable flexible packaging at PACK EXPO International, October 23-26 in Chicago. Attendees are invited to visit Fresh-Lock at booth S-3541 to learn more about flexible packaging innovations, sustainability efforts, and how collaboration drives efficiency and enhances the consumer experience.
On Monday, October 24, at 1:00 p.m. (CST), Todd Meussling, senior manager of market development Fresh-Lock® closures, will host “Tackling Packaging Challenges and Pressures” on Innovation Stage 1 (N4560). This 30-minute panel discussion will examine how businesses can balance the pressures of sustainable flexible packaging through collaboration. Attendees will gain valuable insights on how Fresh-Lock collaborated with Kirkland’s Signature® to accommodate consumer demand for a more sustainable packaging solution that doesn’t sacrifice safety.
At booth S-3541, Fresh-Lock will showcase a variety of PE sliders including the Child-Guard® child-resistant slider system, now fully recyclable when used as a closure on a polyethylene recyclable pouch. This closure can be used on a wide range of product applications and medium to large pouch sizes. Child-Guard® slider brings tested performance to your packaging needs, specially designed for products that should not be handled by children without adult supervision.
Fresh-Lock® Grip and Rip feature will also be shown, providing an alternative opening solution for packages that are currently made of a woven polypropylene film with a sewn top. Grip and Rip utilizes a tear bead functionality to simplify opening for consumers, while creating a clean and smooth tear.
Additionally, the Fresh-Lock team is excited to share all the benefits of sustainable closures available in the 8000 series. Fresh-Lock® zipper style 8425, for example, was designed to meet challenges associated with dry, particle, and granular product applications and the cracking of digitally printed inks on mono-layer recyclable films. This closure, among others in the 8000 series, aims to help provide packaging solutions that contribute to a circular economy while minimizing reduction in production efficiencies.
