“We expect this will further differentiate PPC over our competitors by providing even deeper speed to market for the growth of new and unique brands.”

PPC manufactures flexographic printing and converting of flexible films, bags and pouches for healthcare and medical applications, as well as snack and organic food brands.

Based in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, the company also serves the speciality produce, pet, nutraceutical, bakery and horticulture markets.

CPG is the eighth speciality and differentiated flexible packaging company acquired by PPC in the last four and half years.

PPC has integrated the companies it has acquired into the ‘One PPC’ enterprise.

In addition, PPC has ten AIB, Safe Quality Food (SQF) and ISO-9001 certified manufacturing facilities in cities in Utah, Kansas, Texas, Colombia, South America and other areas.

CPG owner Cam Knuth said: “This new partnership will allow our firm to grow at an even more rapid pace, as we will leverage PPC’s resources to expand our footprint.

“As our brand owners scale up with our prototypes, we now have a source of scalable, commercial roll stock and pouch supply we can offer.”
