ProAmpac expands RAP packaging line into North America

US-based flexible packaging company ProAmpac has introduced fresh-food-to-go packaging produced by its subsidiary, Rapid Action Packaging (RAP), in North America.

US-based flexible packaging company ProAmpac has introduced fresh-food-to-go packaging produced by its subsidiary, Rapid Action Packaging (RAP), in North America.

In January, ProAmpac acquired RAP, a company that produces sustainable cellulose-based packaging products.

Based in London, UK, RAP specialises in manufacturing packaging for freshly prepared foods, such as sandwiches, wraps, chicken tenders and salads.

The RAP fresh-food-to-go packaging aims to reduce materials usage in the packaging by removing avoidable plastics.

Each product under this range is widely recyclable in paper streams.

As well as its sustainability benefits, the fresh-food-to-go packaging offers modified-atmosphere options and various customisation options.

ProAmpac chief commercial officer Adam Grose said: “Continuing our mission to deliver sustainable flexible packaging solutions, ProAmpac is pleased to offer the full capabilities of the RAP product line to the North American market following our successful merger in January.

“Already proven in the UK and EU markets, our sustainable extended shelf-life packaging products ensure consumers experience the same quality and freshness whether food is produced in-store or upstream.”

ProAmpac fresh food packaging global managing director Graham Williams said: “RAP has spent more than two decades delivering sustainable, performance-driven ready-to-eat packaging products to UK and EU markets.

“By joining ProAmpac, we can take the next step in our growth strategy and extend this level of service and innovation to North America.”

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, ProAmpac currently operates 37 sites worldwide, with almost 4,800 employees supplying more than 5,000 customers in 90 countries.

In January, the company secured investment from its parent company, Pritzker Private Capital (PPC), to support its next growth phase.
