As we enter the new year we are excited to continue sharing innovative and sustainable packaging from FPA’s 2020 Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition! Check out our January 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.
Cafe Coffee Day Funza, 50 gms
For those who love South Indian food, banana chips are a snack that goes well with tea, coffee, and even soft drinks. Dried banana chips are crisp in texture and maintain a full banana flavor, so proper packaging is essential for protecting the product and preserving the aroma to experience freshness in every chip.

Dave’s Killer Bread English Muffin is an organic, no preservative product that requires modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and a high performance film structure. The MAP technology extends product shelf life beyond the typical 10–14 days, reducing food waste. The package features convenient reclosability and a high-speed sealant to meet the demands of both the consumer and the manufacturer. To learn more about the manufacturer, visit their website here.
A big change came to the cereal aisle with this 100% flexible stand-up pouch. To take it a step further, the clear sealant web is a 9-layer coex that provides all of the attributes that you would want in a stand-up pouch without the use of things such as PVDC or aluminum oxide, which can be very costly or have negative environmental implications. The registered matte finish used allowed the customer the opportunity to create a premium appearance along with the contrast of a clear window.

Molkerei Weihenstephan’s easier-to-use butter package features a new protective seal that is opened like a gift. The improved functionality is achieved with clear picture instructions that guide consumers through the simple steps and remain clean. Annually renewable, bio-based materials in a packaging layer continue to expand on this product’s impressiveness.
