Rapak unveils sustainable bag for food packaging

FBR Staff Writer Published 02 December 2013

Rapak, a bag-in-box packaging systems manufacturer, has unveiled a new sustainable bag for oxygen sensitive products such as fruit puree and smoothies.

Made of a clear high barrier PE-based film, the new bag has been tested and validated as an alternative to existing metalized film bags that have been utilized in food packaging.

The film comprises a small amount of EVOH and is free from metal deposits, nylon resins rendering the bag.

The launch comes at a time when there is an increasing demand for a sustainable alternative to non-recyclable metalized bags in the foodservice segment.

Currently available in a stock 2.5 gallon size, Rapak's new bags can be ordered in custom bag dimensions and film thickness.

Rapak is a business unit of DS Smith, Plastics division which primarily focuses on Flexible packaging and dispensing solutions, rigid packaging, fresh produce packaging, temperature-controlled packaging, foam products and print solutions.
