Our series of award-winning innovative packaging from FPA’s 2020 Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition continues! Check out our August spotlights listed below to learn about the benefits of each package, the manufacturers behind the creation, and brands that are using these packages for their products!
Cracker Barrel Black Ribbon Natural Cheese Slices
The Cracker Barrel Black Ribbon Natural Cheese Slices graphics and new packaging material were carefully designed to breakthrough on the shelf and emphasize that it is a premium line! Consumer testing was done to ensure that the new graphics were easy to find on the shelf and would be clear to consumers what brand and flavor variant they were buying. The combination of matte black, gloss black, opulent metallic gold and metallic color bands, and a packaging window that showcases the high-quality cheese are the key elements that help the package design stand out on the shelf! TC Transcontinental Packaging earned two Silver Achievement Awards for Packaging Excellence and for Technical Innovation. To learn more about the manufacturer, visit their website here!
Premade STANDCAP Inverted Pouches
The premade STANDCAP inverted pouches were manufactured by Glenroy, Inc. and have an array of benefits! The pouches extend product freshness, stand out on the shelf, and provide timesaving and utensil-free convenience for consumers. Best of all, they make an eco-friendly impact by reducing fossil fuel usage, water usage, and greenhouse gas emissions when compared to alternative package formats. Glenroy, Inc. earned two Gold Achievement Awards for Packaging Excellence and for Expanding the Use of Flexible Packaging, and a Silver Achievement Award for Sustainability.

Printpack manufactured the new Hershey’s packaging and earned a Silver Achievement Award for printing! This stand-up pouch is made on a vertical form fill seal bagger versus a conventional horizontal form fill seal stand-up pouch machine. The sturdy 2-ply and 3-ply laminations enable the pouch to stand-up nicely for a superior impact on the shelf! Best of all, the package is easy to open with precise laser scoring, allowing for a clean directional tear. To learn more about the manufacturer, visit their website here!
Cargill Grab N’ Go Deli Meat Package
The Cargill Grab N’ Go high barrier deli meat package uses a new proprietary, dual-purpose, minimal depth forming, and non-forming film from Amcor with high oxygen barrier and strength properties. The film is very thin and exhibits attributes of a non-barrier thin PE zipper bag commonly found at delis. The final modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) allows longer shelf life for deli meat compared to the traditional low barrier PE film package commonly found at meat department delis. Amcor Flexibles earned two Silver Achievement Awards for Packaging Excellence and for Technical Innovation. To learn more about the manufacturer, visit their website here!
