C-Pak keeps food fresh and marketable.

FILED IN:  Sustainability  > Strategy
     
Harpak, Inc. has developed an innovative proprietary recloseable package system specifically manufactured to maintain freshness and to optimize marketability. C-Pak is an ideal packaging solution for sliced deli meats, dried fruits and nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables, and many other food products. Unlike typical deli packages, the patent pending C-Pak utilizes an inside closing lid with the ability to close on three surfaces instead of one narrow area. This technique creates a stronger seal than an ordinary over cap. State-of-the-art tray sealing capabilities allow for an extremely tight tolerance between the lid and tray and extends shelf life. After first-time use, consumers know exactly when the package is closed properly because they hear a clicking sound notifying them that the freshness has been locked in. Looking sharp on the shelves is also a priority and the C-Pak has the ability to adapt to multiple presentations. It can hang on a peg board, stack in a well or lie on its side. Colorful labels easily adhere to the package’s smooth outer cover enhancing the product’s brand power on the supermarket shelves. Compared to form/fill/seal packs, the C-Pak is extremely durable and will maintain its shape through the transportation process and beyond. Its non-barrier lid can even be recycled. The C-Pak can easily be worked into any line from Harpak - including the new high-speed multi-lane tray sealer from Mondini. The new multi-lane Evolution can package up to 400 packages per minute depending on package size. Another recent undertaking at Harpak is mastering the skin pack operation. Grocery giants, like Wal-mart are increasingly favoring skin packaging because it leaves less of an environmental footprint than conventional methods of packaging. Because Harpak can seal when a product is above the flange, a smaller tray is optimized. This sleek design allows the manufacturer to transport more packages and utilize the transport cube space significantly more efficiently. Skin pack and C-Pak used together would ultimately optimize any plants resources.
