ATLANTA, GA - Star Packaging Corporation, a leading provider of innovative flexible packaging, today announced the launch of its TerraFLEX RP line of fully recyclable stand up pouches. The newest addition to Star's TerraFLEX family of sustainable packaging solutions, TerraFLEX RP is ideal for use in virtually any flexible packaging application. From food and beverage to grass seeds and lawn products, the 100% polyethylene TerraFLEX RP line offers superior performance to traditional plastic packaging while allowing for greater sustainability.
TerraFLEX RP packaging can still be fully tailored to meet customers' specific application needs. Offering a superior moisture barrier compared to similar thickness polyester/poly laminations, TerraFLEX RP can also incorporate an oxygen barrier to further protect content quality and freshness without affecting the film clearness of the package or compromising the recycling stream.
"With consumers growing ever-more conscious of the impact products and packaging have on the environment, solutions like Star's TerraFLEX RP line are vital to the packaging industry," said Fred Crowe, President and CEO of Star Packaging. "The consumer packaged goods industry needs to be able to demonstrate clearly a commitment to reducing their environmental footprint while continuing to produce the same high-quality, visually-appealing products that consumers know and expect."
From frozen food to candy and snacks, flexible packaging needs to grab the consumer's attention on increasingly busy store shelves, and brands are progressively moving towards higher quality graphics, eye-catching colors and high-end designs. The TerraFLEX RP line is available in both matte and gloss finishes and can incorporate up to 10-color printing to maximize a product's shelf-impact and ensure brands stand-out in the limited real-estate of retail outlets.
With a wide number of filling processes being used in the market, Star Packaging offers a range of packaging technologies to meet the different requirements. Pouch options range from open-bottom to open-top, and from wicketed to loose pack, helping consumer packaged goods companies address varied customer needs. Press-to-close zippers can also be added to allow for packaging to be easily resealed and re-used.
"With TerraFLEX RP, we're truly offering the best of both worlds," Crowe concluded. "The same high standards of packaging that our customers have relied on at Star Packaging for decades, but now in an advanced, environmentally responsible format."
Star Packaging Corporation was recently formed through the merger of Master Packaging, located in Tampa, FL and Star Packaging, based in Atlanta, GA. Master Packaging has 55 years of flexible packaging industry experience and has been backed by Azalea Capital since 2006. Star Packaging, formerly owned by the Wilson family, has over 35 years of experience in the printing, laminating, and conversion of flexible packaging materials. Headquartered in Atlanta, GA with operating facilities in both Georgia and Florida, the newly combined Company is owned by Azalea Capital, a private investment firm headquartered in Greenville, SC.
