Jabil Packaging Solutions launches sustainable wipe container

The FusePack wipe container offers a smaller and more sustainable solution with the same volume as traditional packaging.

US-based manufacturing services company Jabil Packaging Solutions has introduced a sustainable wipe packaging solution to help brands fulfil e-commerce orders.

The FusePack Wipes packaging is developed using several different packaging substrates and elements of rigid and flexible components.

The lightweight container is 30% smaller than other rigid plastic wipe containers, but is claimed to offer the same capacity as traditional packaging.

It removes the need for secondary packaging and is designed to endure shocks, vibrations and temperature alteration.

The solution reduces packaging weight by 68% compared to other rigid packs, allowing efficient transit and more units to be placed on each shelf.

It is also hermetically sealed to extend shelf life and prevent leakage.

Jabil Packaging Solutions technology vice-president Ayana Johnson said: “Cleaning and sanitizing wipes have been steadily rising in popularity and since last year, they’ve truly become a household staple.

“While wipes have become an essential part of our lives, traditional wipes canisters are incredibly bulky, using an excessive amount of plastic while tending to lose moisture, causing decreased shelf life.

“As home delivery has taken off, we’ve seen traditional canisters struggle with the bumps, shocks and vibrations of shipping directly to consumers. These factors drove us to reinvent the wipes container with FusePack packaging.”

The FusePack packaging is being showcased at this year’s Index trade show for non-woven products, which is being held in Geneva from 19-22 October.

Last month, Jabil Packaging Solutions partnered with Spanish coffee roaster Prosol to develop a home-compostable coffee capsule.

Designed for single-serve espresso brewers, the high-barrier compostable capsule is intended to improve on other coffee capsules on the market.

Its developers claim it can maintain the product’s freshness, flavour and shelf life without requiring a plastic or foil pouch.
