Flexible packaging company ProAmpac has introduced a new recyclable film for premium frozen food products packaging.
Named ProActive Recyclable R-2000F, the film is part of the ProActive Sustainability product family.
The patent-pending film has been prequalified for store drop-off recycling through polyethylene recycling streams.
ProActive Recyclable R-2000F is a polyethylene-based laminated structure and designed to maintain machine efficiencies on high-speed form/fill/seal lines.
Specially designed for cold temperature conditions, the film enhances stiffness and scuff-resistance.
ProAmpac chief commercial officer Adam Grose said: “ProAmpac is committed to providing our customers with sustainable alternatives to their current products that do not sacrifice manufacturing or end-use performance. Our material scientists have designed a product that is unique to frozen food packaging, that runs at-rate and is recyclable.
“The debut of R-2000F comes on the heels of ProActive Recycle Ready Retort RT-3000 film, which we launched just a few weeks ago. We are excited to introduce this unique technology that will immediately help brands advance their sustainable packaging goals.”
ProActive Recyclable R-2000F can be supplied with a pre-applied recyclable Inno-Lok zipper. It is also available in a pre-made pouch format.
The company is offering additional options such as gloss or Signature Surfaces Registered Matte finish for differentiation in the freezer case.
Besides the R-2000F, ProAmpac also offers ProActive Recyclable R-500F for gusseted bags.
Last month, the company launched a premium high-barrier recyclable snack packaging made of recyclable R-1000 film for agricultural cooperative Ocean Spray.
