A leader in flexible packaging and material Science, ProAmpac, is honored to be a sponsor of SPC Engage of FY 2022 in Montreal. During the program, participants were invited to learn more about ProAmpac’s effective sustainability approach to renewable packaging innovation. ProAmpac displayed the newest paper-based fresh food-to-go solutions and the complete ProActive sustainability products.

ProAmpac, which leads in flexible packaging and material sciences, has recently sponsored the SPC Engage 2022. The company offers eco-friendly flexible packing in five product groups which are mentioned below.

  • ProActive Recyclable is a flexible packing created for polyethene and paper recycling streams.
  • ProActive Recycle Ready is created for advanced recycling processes and uses a mono-material structure.
  • ProActive PCR blends post-consumer recycled materials into the packing to meet the brand durability factors and policy requirements, such as the UK Plastics Packaging Tax.
  • ProActive Renewable packaging uses bio-based resins.
  • ProActive Compostable reduces in an organic compost environment.

SPC Engage Montreal is an event covering several sustainable packaging aspects, including panels with the top industry leaders.

ProAmpac’s sustainability approach for different products

ProAmpac’s flexible packaging provides customers with easy storage, extended shelf life, and portability and helps reduce energy consumption and its effect on the environment during transportation. Its products are made from bio-based feedstock like sugarcane or corn and are suitable for all market products like food and beverage, pet foods, and treats.

Sai Pellingra, vice president of global applications and innovation in the company, one of the speakers on the panelists for the topic ‘The Role of Collective Commitments’ said, “Collaborative packaging innovation focuses on creative, functional design and user experience, but also needs to make progress toward a circular economy to bring the next generation of sustainable packaging to life. We’re highlighting how our design, collaboration, and innovation resources combined with our ProActive sustainability platform help brands meet sustainability goals in creative and meaningful ways.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
