Aptar Spotlights Food and Beverage Dispensing Innovations that Enhance the Consumer Experience at PACK EXPO International 2016


Technologies help brands address unmet needs of consumers of all ages



Crystal Lake, IL – To help brand owners enhance the way consumers interact with their products and build sales, Aptar Food + Beverage will showcase a range of dispensing technologies at PACK EXPO International 2016 (Nov. 6-9; McCormick Place, Chicago, IL), Booth # N-6378. With a variety of custom and stock dispensing solutions for inverted, rigid and flexible formats to choose from, brands can address the needs of consumers of all ages with packaging that is functional, safe, convenient and engaging. 



“The most successful brands anticipate an unmet need even before consumers are aware of it,” said Aaron Heyniger, Sales Director, Aptar Food + Beverage. “Aptar’s solutions transform the marketplace by revolutionizing how consumer products are dispensed, making food and beverages easier to access and enjoy and inspiring new usage occasions. This approach to innovation, combined with our market expertise and technical skill, has enabled us to successfully partner with brands around the world to transform product categories.”



Aptar’s booth will feature a wide range of dispensing technologies for the food and beverage industries. Here are just a few examples of what attendees can expect to see:



The VersaPouch inverted pouch platform features a variety of new flip-top closure options that are integrated with SimpliSqueeze® valve technology, allowing consumers to precisely control the amount of product dispensed. Aptar will also showcase multiple other inverted packaging solutions, a market segment the company pioneered and remains a market leader in. The format is a superior option for applications such as dairy, jellies, dressings and condiments.



Manufacturers of dry goods, including snacks, cereals, pet food, candy and granular products, that utilize flexible packaging can turn to Aptar’s new EZ Pour closure as an alternative to traditional zippers. The flip lid style closure allows consumers to properly and securely reseal the package after each use, making it perfect for multi-serve applications.



Contender is Aptar’s 38mm sport closure that eliminates the need for manufacturers of hot-fill beverages to apply a foil liner, reducing packaging waste and helping consumers avoid the frustrations associated with removal.



Aptar’s proprietary BAP® (Bonded Aluminum to Plastic) technology creates exciting opportunities to accentuate brands by engaging consumers with an enjoyable experience each and every time they open a new package. In addition to improving seal integrity and protecting product freshness and safety, the BAP® Safe Fresh Seal provides an improved opening performance, reducing the force needed to remove the foil. The versatile all-in-one foil to closure solution can be produced in a wide variety of sizes and shapes and is ideal for products including such as infant formula, nutraceuticals, liquid and powdered beverages and shelf stable food.



Aptar will also provide attendees with greater insight into megatrends driving the food and beverage packaging industry in its Innovation Stage presentation. Entitled “Aligning Consumer Trends with Packaging Innovation,” the session will focus on how brand owners can translate these trends into packaging features that meet the demands of modern consumers. The free presentation will be held on Sunday, November 6 from 1:00 – 1:30pm at Booth # N-4570.
