Kidsnax Launches Nickelodeon Fruit Snacks with Amcor PushPop

Amcor PushPop, the easy-open and fun-shaped flexible pack from Amcor Flexibles, has been chosen by Kidsnax to launch a range of fruit snacks under the Nickelodeon brand.

There are four varieties available in the range; Energy Boost, Amazin' Apricots, Fruit Salad & Ravin' Raisins. The innovative, vertical form fill seal, Amcor PushPop pack (Pat.App.2421013) has a novel easy open system and is ideal for a wide range of products consumed directly from the pack. The easy open system is created during AF conversion and allows the consumer to push and pop open the pack through the centre of the top side gusset. The bowl shaped free standing pack thus created has a conveniently wide opening which gives full accessibility to the product packed inside. The pack is ideal either for single use or for reclose with the application of a pressure sensitive adhesive coated label.

The 'Nickelodeon' packs are made by Amcor Flexibles in the UK. The packs have been
printed and laminated at AF S&R, using PE supplied by AF Extrusion. Application of the
'Fancy Slit' easy-open system was also carried-out at AF S&R, assisted by Amcor
Flexibles' UK Development Team.

The stackable and stand-up Amcor PushPop offers excellent on shelf product differentiation and the entire surface can be printed, including the top and bottom of the pack. Gas tight and gas flushable material solutions are also available. The Amcor PushPop pack can be run on any VFFS packing machine with 4-side seal facility.
The contract packing division of Universal Flexible Packaging is packing the Amcor
PushPop at their factory in Leicester. This UK-based company's division operates as a copacker for most of the major multiples and independent food distributors and is organically certificated and food approved to the higher level of EFSIS.
