Winpak Launches New Platform of Sustainable Flexible Packaging

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, December 4th, 2019

Winpak LTD. ("Winpak" or the "Company") today announced the launch of ReFresh™ - A Fresh Start to Sustainable Packaging. Recently unveiled at PACK EXPO 2019, Winpak’s ReFresh™ products provide food manufacturers and brand owners with high barrier recycle-ready solutions to address their packaging needs. “We believe designing packages for easier recycling is important to achieve a circular economy. The technological content of these packages is enhanced by Winpak’s materials science expertise, process technologies and machinery advancements”, said Mustafa Bilgen, Vice President Technology & Innovation at Winpak. “Recycle-ready is a way to create high performance, sustainable packaging that is predominantly mono-material and can be recycled at locations equipped with proper collection and sorting infrastructure”.

The ReFresh™ product platform initially features 4 main products: ReForm, ReLam, ReLid and RePouch.
Refresh Products
A flexible thermoformable polyolefin-based film with low haze and high clarity. Produced with optimum gas, moisture and aroma barriers, ReForm can be used for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum applications.

A flexible non-forming polyolefin-based film with low haze and high clarity. ReLam is a lightweight construction with superior gas, moisture and aroma barrier properties. It is also suitable for high end graphic designs in a reverse print adhesive-laminated solution.

A high speed heat sealable polyolefin-based lidding film with excellent gas, moisture and aroma barriers, ReLid has low haze and high clarity with antifog properties. ReLid includes a built-in multi-dimensional shrink property enabling end users to form super tight packages. Typical applications include case ready packaging and fresh meat. ReLid is designed to provide a complete recycle-ready packaging solution when used with Winpak’s recyclable high barrier MAPfresh® trays.

Available in high clarity polyolefin structures with oxygen, moisture and aroma barriers. RePouch can be used for various pouch applications with surface or reverse printing capabilities. Its balance of properties makes it an excellent choice for a broad range of applications including food, dairy and protein-based products.

ReFresh™ products provide sustainable options for packaging food, dairy, meats and other proteins while offering outstanding product safety, quality and shelf life. Winpak is actively engaged with Sustainable Packaging Coalition on qualifying its products for the How2Recycle® label; thereby enabling end-users to properly recycle, where infrastructure is available, the Company’s packages.

“Winpak is committed to following circular economy tenets through the optimum use of resources in our products and processes; and through a focus on packaging innovations that are recyclable or recycle-ready, contain recycled content or are compostable”, said Winpak President and CEO, Olivier Muggli. “Our goal is to provide an unmatched offering of high-quality sustainable products and services to support the success of our clients and their leadership positions within their respective markets”.
