Mondi Industrial Bags and Consumer Goods Packaging will Offer One-stop Shopping at Petfood Forum 2016
April 18 - 20, Booth #1024
Mondi Consumer Goods Packaging in collaboration with Mondi Industrial Bags in North America will offer and showcase a single source solution for virtually any pet food flexible packaging or woven poly pinch bottom bag application at Petfood Forum 2016 in Kansas City. The announcement was made jointly by Mark Ushpol, president, Mondi Industrial Bags North America and Ross Bushnell, president, Mondi Jackson, Consumer Goods Packaging.
“Pet food producers looking for practically any type of paper, woven poly pinch bottom or flexible plastic packaging solution will likely find answers at Mondi’s booth,” Ushpol says. “The woven poly pinch bottom bags boost packagers’ productivity and seal quality, and are highly adaptable to different packing line machinery and configurations. Plus, they can be offset printed with high–quality graphics that capture shoppers’ attention on retail shelves.
Adds Bushnell, “Consumer Goods Packaging’s line of innovative pouches that make for easier handling and contribute to brand appeal combined with Industrial Bags’ broad range of woven poly pinch bottom bags make for one of industry’s most comprehensive pet food packaging offerings.”
At the show, Mondi will exhibit a sweeping array of pet food packaging solutions. In addition to a full range of woven poly pinch bottom bags, Mondi will have on display the FlexZiBox® Side Pour and Flat Bottom Bag, the Square Bag and small and large spouted pouches. Mondi encourages visitors to bring with them their most challenging applications for on-site review by its packaging experts.
Woven poly pinch bottom bags
Woven poly pinch bottom bags that boost packagers’ productivity and improve seal quality will be on exhibit in various sizes for typical product weights of 10 lbs. to 50+ lbs. The bags offer a unique heat seal on each end. When the ends are folded over, or pinched, during closure, packagers need only a hot air sealer to create a tight seal that preserves product freshness and prevents bag breakage. The woven poly pinch bags eliminate the need for sewing or hot melt equipment for bag closure and free packagers from concerns over needle holes, broken needles and machinery downtime to deal with glue buildup. Pinch bags can be sealed up to 15 percent faster than sewn bags. In addition to superior material strength, Mondi’s woven polypropylene bags provide packagers with an array of printing possibilities, including eight-color reverse or surface printing via high-defination flexography, rotogravure and offset lithography. Gloss, matte and differential gloss printing options are possible.
Mondi’s FlexZiBox Side Pour pouch
Mondi’s FlexZiBox Side Pour pouch features an integrated handle in the bag’s side gusset that makes the bag comfortable to carry and gives users greater control and accuracy when pouring. The bag has a perforated area at the top for easy opening. Its side-gusset closure allows the bag to be reclosed after use, protecting the contents.
Mondi’s FlexZibox Flat Bottom Bag
Mondi’s FlexZibox Flat Bottom Bag offers easy-filling advantages for packagers of pet food. The bag opens with ease, allows fast and highly efficient filling and is compatible with all conventional filling machines. It features a specially designed flat base with rounded edges for enhanced stability, maintains its shape during transportation and storage, and presents an attractive appearance on store shelves.
In addition, the bags can be fitted with a variety of different closures to suit the application, including a top zipper, top slider or hook-and-loop closure. The closures allow consumers to seal the bag after use, protecting its contents and preserving freshness.
Mondi’s Square Bag
Mondi’s patented flexible Square Bag incorporates advanced packaging films with a variety of spouts, closures and handles. Constructed of advanced barrier films in multiple layers, the Square Bag offers exceptional product protection. It securely packages pet foods weighing up to 10 lbs. The Square Bag is lighter and less bulky than conventional packaging materials, providing brand packagers with key sustainability benefits. It takes up less space on pallets and trucks, potentially reducing transportation and storage costs.
Small and large spouted pouches
Spouted pouches in a large range of sizes, pouch configurations and spout types round out Mondi’s exhibit at Petfood Forum 2016.
