Sustainable packaging for food applications
Pregis, a leading manufacturer of flexible and protective packaging, partnered with NOVA Chemicals Corporation (NOVA Chemicals) to co-develop a sustainable packaging solution for food-safe applications used in stand-up pouches (SUPs), fitment pouches, and lay-flat bags.
The Pregis film structure, manufactured with Nova Chemical’s SYNDIGO rPE-0860-FC recycled polyethylene resin, delivers on the market need for high-quality, food-safe recycled content solutions without compromising on performance. This solution goes beyond the FDA-LNO (letter of non-objection) to provide packaging converters, and consumer packaged goods companies, with a mechanically recycled content film that offers unmatched safety and quality. The outcome of this joint development effort is a sustainable solution that delivers on film clarity, printability, and processing performance.
