Zip-Pak to Highlight Value-Added Services for CPGs, Converters and OEMs at Interpack 2011

Manteno, IL - Zip-Pak, the global leader in materials and machinery for resealable packaging, will showcase new services designed to help consumer product goods (CPG) companies, converters, and OEMs implement total resealable packaging solutions at Interpack 2011, Hall 10, Stand A-78.

As the only zipper supplier with an in-house equipment division, Zip-Pak Systems, the company is uniquely poised to provide a wide range of consultative services. The Systems division specializes in providing retrofit solutions, minimizing capital investments in equipment needed to add a resealable closure to product packaging. Zip-Pak's material and machinery experts also guide the development of packaging lines for new products or package re-designs, acting as a single point of contact between CPGs and OEMs to ensure a functional package for consumers.

"The experience and expertise of our packaging specialists enable them to continue delivering exceptional insight to our customers worldwide," said Elizabeth Sheaffer, Marketing Manager at Zip-Pak. "We continually invest in sustainability and consumer-value research to ensure that we can recommend the best possible material, machinery and design solutions."

Zip-Pak will also feature innovative new resealable solutions and package formats to meet consumer demand for convenience, including Zipbox® and Zip360(TM). Ideal for cereals, snacks, baking supplies, frozen foods, pet treats and powdered laundry detergent and other household products, Zipbox(TM) is a revolutionary package format that combines the structural benefits of traditional cartons with the convenience and resealability of flexible pouches.

Zip360(TM) is a new flexible pouch format that features a wide opening and pour-spout functionality to enhance consumer convenience across multiple applications, including cookies and crackers, snack mixes, cereals, frozen foods, pet food and treats, lawn and garden fertilizer, vegetables and candy. The package style also enables graphics around the entire surface area of the pouch to maximize point-of-purchase impact.

"Both innovative package formats have tested well among consumers and brand managers in North America," adds Sheaffer. "We look forward to introducing these new solutions on the international stage at Interpack."
