The PepsiCo Mexico Foods for Doritos Icognita E-Z SnackPak™ pouch was on display at

ProAmpac’s S-3386 booth at PACK EXPO International. The novel four-sided, tetrahedron-shaped pouch won a Gold Award from The Dow Chemical Co., and a 2018 Star Pack and Packaging Award from The Mexican Assn. of Packaging.

ProAmpac exhibited several flexible packaging products, including the following:

• QuadFlex Pouch, a polyethylene-based, quad-seal pouch with a flat-bottom format that offers five panels for branding on store shelves approved for store dropoff through the How2Recycle program.

• Absolute Wrap Sandwich Wrap, a multilayer paper/plastic/foil replacing wrap with strong heat retention and non-stick-features, as well as grease and moisture barriers. It aims to use 40% less plastic by replacing polyethylene with calcium carbonate that can be recycled in plastic waste streams.

• 100% recyclable high barrier and medium barrier films that run on both vertical and horizontal form/fill/seal packaging lines.

The company also displayed its PRO-VUE Shield, PRO-LocknPeel, Peel & Reseal lidding, and Pro-Touch offerings.
