Ampac: Single-serve snack food packaging
The E-Z SnackPak from Ampac is a unique and convenient flexible pouch packaging solution for single-serve snack foods that transforms into a serving tray upon opening to provide an alternative to the typical single-serve v f/f/s snack food bag.
The tetrahedron-shaped pouch to serving tray design provides a unique, clean, and fun consumer experience. The pouch is easy to open: by pinching and pulling open at the top, the unique format transforms the packaging into a perfect tray for snacking. The tetrahedron shape with built-in headspace adds package support which provides product protection during shipping and handling. The geometric design can be packed into a corrugated shipper with an efficient interlocking pattern, displayed in a shelf-ready carton at point-of-sale providing shelf impact, or packaged in a convenient multi-pack bag.
The E-Z SnackPak pouch does not incorporate traditional side seals thus uses up to 25% less material than traditional snack food packaging, according to the company. It is a simple, creative, yet differentiated package that enables brands to stand out in the snack food aisle.
E-Z SnackPak pouch can be used in applications including sweet and savory snacks, treats and dry foods, and is capable of being gas flushed during filling. It is suitable for lunches, fast-food restaurants, bars and more. Options include barrier and non-barrier as well as rotogravure, flexographic or high-definition flexographic print.
